Sony’s Kaz Hirai will address PlayStation Network hack at 1AM ET, stay tuned

Sony’s PlayStation Network has been down for over a week, and it’s a royal mess for all involved — as you’ve no doubt heard, an external intrusion by unknown hackers compromised the personal information (supposedly including everything but credit card numbers) of potentially tens of thousands of users. This morning, Sony VP Kaz Hirai (formerly of the PlayStation division) will address the world from the company’s headquarters in Japan, and our friends at Engadget Japanese are on the scene to bring us first-hand details in just a few minutes. Additionally, there appears to be an official livestream that will begin at 1AM ET, so keep it locked right here and potentially find some video at our source link.

Update: We’re hearing that Sony’s “goodwill gesture” may not be an incredibly significant one — affected users can expect a free 30-day subscription to PlayStation Plus and a free software download of some sort, while Qriocity customers will get an extra 30 days of service on the house.

How would you change Motorola’s Atrix 4G?

Motorola’s Atrix 4G may have some serious competition from a performance standpoint, but it’s still got one thing going for it over all of the other Android superphones hitting the streets these days: an optional laptop dock. ‘Course, it’s debatable whether or not said accessory is truly worth paying for, but the phone itself has certainly done its fair share of impressing. You’ve read our take on Motorola’s latest Android whizkid, and now it’s your turn to vent. If you had the power necessary to overhaul the Atrix 4G, how would you go about doing so? Would you nix Motoblur altogether? Toss the latest build on Android onboard? Make it available on more carriers? Handle the laptop dock differently? All (sane) opinions are welcome, and comments are open below.

Triton 36,000 submarine to plumb ocean’s deepest depths, comes in yellow (video)

Richard Branson‘s not the only one eager to explore that other 70 percent of the world. Triton Submarines has designed a three-passenger sub able to dive 36,000 feet, reaching the deepest part of the world’s oceans. And while Sir Richard envisions a spaceship-like craft, Triton’s design evokes old school bathyspheres: it’s a glass globe. Of course, water pressure poses a serious engineering challenge when you descend seven miles below the surface — the last manned sub to reach that depth had only a single, small window made of plexiglass. The current design uses borosilicate glass (like those transparent displays we, um, saw through a while back) that actually grows stronger as depth pressure increases; it took eight months of careful heating and cooling to produce. Assuming the glass holds, it will take about 75 minutes to reach the bottom of the ocean. Anyone considering a test run should check out the PR video after the break, showing Triton’s other submarines in action.

Review: Verizon 4G LTE MiFi – lightning in your pocket (IntoMobile)

Novatel has another mobile hotspot that supports 4G technology – the Verizon
LTE MiFi. It’s much like the Sprint version we saw a few weeks ago with a few
noticeable differences. For starters – and probably the most important thing
here – it is much faster. The difference is really like night and day. If …

If you’ve been on the hunt for the biggest, fastest hard drive around, it seems your options are expanding.

HTC Thunderbolt getting new radio firmware, according to Verizon doc

Looks like AT&T isn’t the only carrier patching cellular connectivity issues this month — a Verizon document suggests that we’ll be getting some brand new radio firmware for the beleaguered HTC Thunderbolt. The handset not only fell victim to Verizon’s LTE outage but has had 3G data and CDMA / LTE cycling issues since day one, so we’re hoping this latest baseband will bring at least a modicum of relief for affected speed demons across the country. What we don’t know is when this patch might show up — we thought the Xoom’s security update would be imminent, but those documents were unceremoniously pulled.

BlackBerry Bold Touch Leaks Ahead of BlackBerry World Conference

BlackBerry Bold Touch is supposed to be the only new handset announced during next week’s BlackBerry World Conference, although we doubt that. Considering the number of leaks we’ve seen recently, it’s likely we’ll see this handset accompanied by at least one or two other models. In the meantime, the device leaked again, this time on RIM’s website…

BlackBerry Bold Touch had its specs leaked a while ago, revealing a 1.2GHz CPU, 8GB of memory, a 5MP camera and BB OS 6.1, that was confirmed to actually be BB OS 7, because of RIM’s decision to change branding. The handset looks pretty nice and we must mention it also comes with 768MB of RAM and a 2.8 inch TFT LCD display.

The next week will surely be a hot one, with BlackBerry World Conference and Google I/O starting around the same time…

Samsung Omnia 7 NoDo Updates Stopped Because of Issues

Microsoft has just announced that it has stopped updates for the Samsung Omnia 7 WP7 smartphone, because of problems. This is a temporary halt, confirmed by MS consumer writer Michael Stroh on his blog. No info when the update will start rolling out again.

A technical issue with the update package was mentioned and it’s being fixed and tested as we speak, with the status being “nearly done”. This is not the first time that the Omnia 7 has issues, as the previous update, the one in February also caused some bricking. If you’re one of the guys or gals with a defective Samsung Omnia 7 unit after receiving NoDo, feel free to post your grief below.
