Two official Sony news: Hack warning and new action camera

Sony Japan announced a new action camera.

And more importantly Sony Japan also released an official statement to warn about using the Sony hack as this is not officially supported by Sony. They don’t mention the exact hack name. But I guess they mean the hack software news we posted in April (read here) and the new STGuploader. If something goes wrong because of those kind of hacks Sony will not cover it with their warranty!

Thanks Al
