are you REALLY wondering why Sony dumped Wie? Really? Nike will be next no doubt.

I don't think Michelle ever generated any revenue to the struggling Sony. It comes at no surprise that they dumped her.

Nike, on the other hand, would sell cute and sporty women's golf clothes regardless of Michelle's actual performance on the golf course. To them she's a 6 foot tall mannequin that's easy on the eyes. So, unless she does something incredibly stupid in public (which is not beyond team Wie), I seriously doubt they would ever drop her.

Now I have yet another reason to dislike Woods. Not that it surprises me that he'd break bread with Mr. Hussein, but that's sort of like accepting Satan's invitation to visit Hell.

Is this site in a time warp or something?

Sony paid that lawsuit from Immersion in 2006 for crying out loud.

The reason they haven't renewed the contract is almost certainly because we are in the middle of a worldwide recession and as everyone knows the first thing to get cut back in companies is the advertising budget.

If you click on the link within my article, you will see that Sony, aside from handing over $97 million (just paid out to Immersion), is being accused by inventor John Thorner of cheating him out of "royalties for a license that he held for the technology. He also claims that Sony conspired to obtain his patent using "dubious" means."

Also, "that PDP and Sony were in league with each other to secure the patents and avoid hefty payouts to Immersion."

Barry,

Would that be Satan's or Mr. Hussein's name?

Oh, never mind. Same difference.
