While Sony was under-fire, what technology of yesterday did they use to communicate? Smoke signals? Telegrams? Walkie Talkies? With all of their tech taken out; computers, email, and landlines, Sony turned to the one piece of tech that has (hardly) stood the test of time, the blackberry. Blackberry's company line has been that Blackberry is more secure and encrypted, which is true, but has not commented on if they could stand against the level of subterfuge that took place. More likely, the hackers weren't aware of the box in the back labeled trash.
