SONY ADMITS SCREW-UP - SORT-OF: It's rare to see a company admit a mistake, and that's nearly what Ken Kutaragi has done when he stated publicly that Sony had dropped a meaty one by not building players capable of handling mp3 files. Although it's not quite a mea culpa - Ken heads up the computer wing of the wobbly Sony soft-and-hardware corporation, and is very clearly pointing the finger at the entertainment side of the group's worries over people stealing their stuff. So it's a kind of they-a culpa, then.
