Sony’s PlayStation Network has been offline for days, due to what Sony is calling an “external “intrusion.” The service that lets PlayStation 3 owners play their games online is not scheduled to come back online until April 26th. While it is not confirmed, many attribute the outage to the hacker group, Anonymous. In other news, the white iPhone 4 is finally making its way into stores.  Retailers began receiving promotional material suggesting an AT&T and Verizon launch this week. Apple hopes the white iPhone 4 will boost sales until the new model comes out late this year. And finally, NASA recently invested money into private companies for spacecraft development and it’s already paying off. Rocket producer SpaceX claims its Dragon capsule cannot only deliver goods to space stations, but hopes to land on other planets. The first manned mission could happen as early as 2014.
