Sony's Captcha

July 18, 2011

There’s making a CAPTCHA annoying, and there’s making it too easy for computers to recognize. But apparently, there’s missing the point, too.

Unfortunately Sony missed the entire point of a CAPTCHA. Instead of using an obfuscated image which is difficult for computers to recognize the characters, they include the CAPTCHA’s unobfuscated characters in HTML and use CSS and JavaScript to make the characters appear slightly distorted.
