Nerds Hit All Time High

Just when I thought computer hacking was so 1990's the hacker nerds topped themselves. This time instead of hacking into a high tech computer system, a credit card company database, or a university, an unknown hacker or hackers disabled the PlayStation 3 Network. Now call me normal if you insist, but I really do not understand the Apple vs. PC rivalry or PlayStation vs. XBox 360 rivalry, it is simply preference. Who really dislikes a system to the point that they spend hours or even days developing a virus to disable it? Luckily, I have not used my PS3 during this outage, but I am sure many people are enraged that this effected their gaming so much. I hope the problem is resolved soon, but just one message to the hacker(s): get a life.
