PSP2 Phone:

“The PSP2 is already in the hands of developers, but will Sony take the right direction in the portable sector? Following a recent op-ed on fixing the PSP business, leading game industry analysts came to the consensus that the best avenue for Sony to take is to offer a PlayStation Phone, and a strong partner like Google would do just the trick. ‘Sony has the opportunity to redefine the portable games category. I think the best move would be to get out in front of Microsoft’s inevitable Xbox LIVE Arcade Mobile and take on street value of cialis the App Store and carrier deck portals. … They could put out a proper PlayStation Phone (and a PlayStation Pad) but these should compete with smartphones and tablets, not dedicated gaming devices. To do this quickly, Sony could partner with Google and take advantage of Android’s considerable momentum,’ said Billy Pidgeon of M2 Research.”

Doomsday: October 12th 2010

“A small asteroid will pass very close to Earth this Tuesday. Astronomers are still tracking the object, now designated as 2010 TD54, and various estimates say it should come within anywhere from 52,000 km (33,000 miles) to 64,000 km (40,000 miles) on October 12, with closest approach at approximately 11:25 UT.”

ATT U-Verse Comes to Xbox 360

U-verse subscribers soon gaining the ability to use an Xbox 360 as a set-top box: “A so-called Wired Release will roll out to AT&T U-verse customers next Sunday, and it’ll bring the long awaited feature with it (though you’ll have to wait until November 7th for that particular aspect). This means an AT&T U-verse customer’s Xbox 360 will have a Dashboard app, and when launched, it’ll let it function exactly like any other U-verse set-top. The only major catch is that it can’t be the only set-top â?” you’ll need at least one DVR at another TV in the house to enjoy one of the four HD streams that could be funneled into your home.”

Google Cancels Free 411

After three years of providing free directory assistance in exchange for voice samples, Google has announced plans to shut down the GOOG-411 service, in order to focus on ‘speech-enabling the next generation of Google products and services across a multitude of languages.’ The service will close on November 12th.”
