… Not so long ago (Back in the day). There was a place named RadioShack and it was the first place many of us looked for parts. The parts to fix that which was broken. Today the Shack isn’t what it once was and now RadioShack is now looking for input from us to help bring back the dependability and quality of service we all once knew and loved. So please, if you are a do it yourself (DIY) type and miss that once dependable place to go to when you needed that one thing. Join me and so many others who are expressing are desire to bring back the Shack.

Sony‘s PlayStation Network has finally started to come back online, Sony Corp. President and chief executive Kazuo Hirai announced Saturday evening. The mandatory PlayStation 3 system update (v3.61) is currently available. Once installed, many PSN services, including online game-play for PlayStation 3 and PSP, should soon be available for users in the Americas, Europe, Australia and New Zealand and the Middle East. Sony expects to have full, worldwide access restored by May 31.
Users in the US can check this map to see whether service has been restored to their state.
Seems like New Jersey is in the house…
New for 3.61: As a security measure, this system software update will require you to change your account password before you can again access PlayStation®Network *. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete this process.
* Applies to the master account and all sub-accounts.
When you change your password, an e-mail message may be sent to the e-mail address registered with PlayStation®Network (your sign-in ID). If you cannot receive messages at your registered e-mail address, you will not be able to change your password.
If you cannot receive messages at the e-mail address you have registered as your sign-in ID, before changing your password, make sure you have an e-mail address where you can receive messages and then contact PlayStation® Consumer Support.
Depending on your country/region of residence and the network environment you are using, you may not be able to change your PlayStation®Network account password or make use of PlayStation®Network services for some time after updating your PS3™ system software.
The ability to change PlayStation®Network account passwords and use PlayStation®Network services* will be made available in all regions within a few days.
* This does not include the use of PlayStation®Store.
It seems Sony is making a move to bring the PSN (PlayStation Network) online. In a recent post (link), we were all thanked for our patience during this outage and that service is being restored. While this is not all happening at once it does give us a glimpse at the silver lining of this dark cloud which has disrupted all of our game play.
It seems that Sony is set to compensate its PlayStation Network users with some free stuff. The executive deputy president of Sony Corp, Kaz Hirai apologized for the problems yesterday by saying that they were hit with a “highly sophisticated attack by a skilled intruder”.
He said customers would receive compensation in the form of free downloadable content and a free subscription to the PlayStation Plus enhanced online premium service.
Sony says customers will receive a month’s free subscription to PlayStation Plus. Existing subscribers to PlayStation Plus and Qriocity will get an extra month of free service.
“This criminal act against our network had a significant impact not only on our consumers, but our entire industry, said Mr Hirai, “These illegal attacks obviously highlight the widespread problem with cyber-security.
“We take the security of our consumers’ information very seriously and are committed to helping our consumers protect their personal data.
“In addition, the organization has worked around the clock to bring these services back online, and are doing so only after we had verified increased levels of security across our networks.”
