there is no fire without any smoke so this is what is happening with Sony...not making any money and making losses. The company is cutting back. things don't look good for Sony i imagine.In the Tv dept they are lagging in 4th or 5th place, Blue Ray isn't picking up that fast, Cellphones...Sony is not even close to the top 4 or 5. The playstation has seen its share erode since Xbox came out. Koreans and now the emerging Chinese are making it a hard competition.

It is called a sale and lease back and is very common in the property industry! Remind me again why this is news worthy? Doh!

i don't see any problem with SONY. People are just too judgmental about little things - why don't you guys take the big picture, i mean...come on, didn't they just bought the Ericsson share??? and now humor says - they're buying another company as well. You know what, let's take a good example : a man made a dozen-zillion good ways, but it only takes one mistake to destroy that moral he build for himself, thats how you people are trying to portrait it here. And for the record, this company maybe slow - or so we think, but didn't you noticed, their product are build to last! i have my old phone T700 bought it 2009, and still now...alive and kicking!
