When Sony bought CBS way back when, they also bought the famous CBS "Eye," which sought of looked like a black eye.
I bet they didn't think they'd be using that symbol outside of the music or television business, but this year has been one big black eye for Sony -- notebook battery problems, PS3 production problems and now violence and mayhem over the PS3 launch.
Looks like the good folks of Boston aren't taking Sony's launch problems as a "normal course of doing business." Instead, the city plans to bill Sony for the police needed to quell a ruckus at the Sony Style store in Beantown.
Maybe Sony could have "gifted" every mayor of every major U.S. city to get on their good side?
