    The gift will be larger quantities of data. And it will be more interesting. The gift will surely give you much more pleasure and put Sony Pictures into the worst state.

    The Pearl Harbor of Cyber Attacks and Why It Matters

    1. You're children's internet capabilities may be very, very, different from what you are use to today
    "As recently as Friday, a plot hatched by the MPAA and the six major Hollywood studios to launch a concerted assault on “Goliath” — a code name that is believed to refer to Google — was uncovered in the stolen Sony emails"

    This should be all over the front pages of every news outlet.
    This "concentrated assault" is a plot by the MPAA to counter the freedom of speech that is so vital to the internet. By assaulting Google, the plan is to bring up counter-legislation for a new SOPA law. This type of co-operation can only give me the most cynical of views for our future. A tightly controlled internet.

    2. Women are paid less then men - it's not just executives
    "Sony paid Jennifer Lawrence less than it paid Christian Bale or Bradley Cooper, her co-stars in last year's hit movie "American Hustle." Lawrence was paid 7 percent of the movie's profit, while Bale and Cooper received 9 percent, according to emails sent to Pascal."

    3. Movies are losing money - Fast

    Currently, approximately $1B in production spending can be expected to deliver $500M-$600M in profits

    Through his continued focus on financial discipline, SWIM hopes to improve that ratio to a point where $800-$900M in production spending delivers $500-$600M in profits.

    Only seven of SONY's "ultimates" (code word for "producing with expectation of blockbuster") (This Is the End ($50 million in profits), Grown Ups 2 ($48 million), Captain Phillips ($39 million), American Hustle ($27 million), One Direction: This Is Us ($18 million), Elysium ($18 million) and Monuments Men ($10 million) made money.

    4. Is it "ethical" to even report on stolen data

    The attack on Sony's network was clearly illegal and unethical. Some journalists are concerned that by reporting on the contents of these documents, they are profiting from — and maybe even aiding in — the hackers' efforts to embarrass Sony.
    Ultimately, then, the question is less about whether to report on the documents than how much to report. Some information — like, say the Social Security numbers of Sony employees — is clearly out of bounds. But most news organizations have concluded at least some of the revelations in the Sony leak are fair game for reporters.
    Most agree once the genie is out of the lamp, anything goes.

    5. It's not just employees and customers getting data stolen
    "The hack at Sony Pictures Entertainment revealed far more personal information than previously believed, including the Social Security numbers of more than 47,000 current and former employees along with Hollywood celebrities like Sylvester Stallone.
    An analysis of 33,000 Sony documents by data-security firm Identity Finder LLC found personal data, including salaries and home addresses, posted online for people who stopped working at Sony Pictures as far back as 2000 and one who started in 1955.

    6. The culprits

    "hackers used methods similar to ones previously attributed to North Korea. The malware was made on a machine with Korean language settings during Korean peninsula working hours and appears very similar to a tool used last year against South Korean banks and television stations.
    Russian cybersecurity company Kaspersky Lab released a report noting the similarities between the Sony hack and last year’s attacks on South Korea, though it didn’t identify who was behind the incident. The researcher, Kurt Baumgartner, noted cyberattacks others have linked to North Korea are frequently carried about by made-up hacker groups no security researchers have heard of before, much like the Sony breach.
    "

    Also the "GOP" seems to be very concerned with recent layoffs in SONY, something North Korea or a state run service wouldn't care to highlight in it's agenda.

    7. The gossip
    1. England's Princess Beatrice makes $30,000 a year as a coordinating producer in London.
    2. Jessica Alba's Hollywood alias is Cash Money, but she's not the only celebrity who uses a cover name.
    3. Adam Sandler's movies aren't the company's proudest examples of its work, to say the least.
    4. According to a producer, Angelina Jolie is a "minimally talented, spoiled brat."
    5. A Men in Black and Jump Street crossover is in the works.
    6. Spider-Man could have made an appearance in Captain America: Civil War.
    7. People keep asking Paul Reiser for more Mad About You DVDs, and he really wants to be heard.
    8. Will Ferrell is the man in Australia, but his popularity in Japan is superlow.
    9. A producer worked hard to convince Leonardo DiCaprio to take a role in a Steve Jobs biopic, telling him that "everyone involved in this production desperately wants to help bring you the Academy Award you so richly deserve."
