Hackers’ worst nightmare continues as ‘The Interview’ hits more records online

The Interview is far from being a must-see movie, but that didn’t stop plenty of viewers from renting or purchasing the controversial comedy online, after hackers forced Sony’s hand last month. Instead of enjoying a wide release on Christmas Day, the movie was only shown in select cinemas, though Sony also released it online with help of Microsoft, Google, Apple, and other digital content providers. After hitting 15 million in sales in the first days after launch, The Interview passed a second impressive milestone, raking in $31 million, according to CNN. More →

A surprising winner emerges from the Sony hack: BlackBerry

There aren’t many winners in the Sony hack but one of them might be BlackBerry. The New York Times reports that once Sony realized the massive scope of the hack, it was forced to dig up “a handful of old BlackBerrys, located in a storage room in the Thalberg basement” and give them to key executives.
