Sony needs to get back to what made them a household name. Quality. Back in the 80s and 90s Sony stuff was considered top of the line. They started lowering quality while raises prices and at some point people stopped putting up with it.

Sony needs an old school Japanese boss back in charge. The type that would rather kill them self rather then dishonor them self and the company by selling crappy products.
