In what I assume is retroactive justification for taking away OtherOs capabilities, I received this email this morning from Sony:
"From time to time, it may become necessary for SCEA to provide certain content to you to ensure that Sony Online Services and content offered through Sony Online Services, your PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, the PSP (PlayStation Portable) system or other SCEA-authorized hardware is functioning properly in accordance with SCEA guidelines.
Some content may be provided automatically without notice when you sign in. Such content may include automatic updates or upgrades which may change your current operating system, cause a loss of data or content or cause a loss of functionalities or utilities."
And if you don't like that? They tacked this on to the end of it:
So now, if I do not agree to this, not only would I terminate my PSN account, but I am advised not to visit their network or websites.
