When Sony is not suing Geohot or trying to get their network back on its feet, their marketing department is hard at work trying to get Apple users to check out what Sony has to offer. As a matter of fact Sony wants Apple users to check them out so bad, that it kinda pretends it is Apple.

Don’t believe me? Look at this ad in the image above. It’s an ad served by Google for Sony. The title of the ad: “Apple”. The description of the ad does mention it’s for Sony, but it is still very confusing, and I even doubt Google authorizes those misleading ads…

What you think?

  • because ‘Apple’ is more attractive that sony?

      Ii think the entire hacking community is and that is why they are getting attacked. you press on one member of the community, then you press on all members

      • mripod64

        I agree completely

  • Koppis

    Yay for news of ads.

  • Diego Castro

    • Nick

      Sebastian has nothing better to do.

  • Funny you complaining about ads when you need ads to survive lol?

  • Getdadamnetworkbacup

    Apple wouldn’t have let hackers in, and even if they would have, they would have the network up and running by now

  • Daniel CG

    Just another of the many reasons why I will never buy a Sony product again.

    • Miguel

      And that’s relevant how?

      • rdqronos

        It’s relevant because Sony fails.

  • Gaz

    Have you actually clicked the Ad? I suspect it’s not a Sony owned ad, but some site that sells Sony gear. I know these companies can be pretty stupid but I don’t think Sony would be that stupid

    • Selcuk

      Agreed

  • Érico
