It's not just Playstation

Overlooked a little in the excitement about Sony's loss of up to 77 million people's personal data and maybe their credit card details too is that it isn't just the PlayStation Network which has been hit.

It's also users of Sony's iTunes-wannabe, Qriocity, who have had their names pinched. For some reason, this hasn't proved as interesting to the non-tech press as the Playstation brand.

It must be disappointing for Sony that it has so failed to get Qriocity to take off that all its users being breached doesn't create much of a murmur; but on the plus side, when it comes to do the relaunches of the system a lot of consumers won't automatically think "oh, the leaky music and movies service".
