New PSP?

1up dropped this lil gem on us. *cue up price is right music* The NEW PSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSPPPPPPPPPPPP. It looks like a cell phone, that flip top. If that is indeed what it is. I have to say, that was a very wise idea to me as you really increase your viewing space. Or do you. Duh Duh Duh. That’s my biggest beef with handhelds. I know some people (RICH) like them but I’m just not ready to cheat on my HDTV (just yet). There’s nothing up on sony’s site yet, we’ll see..

The Kindle from Amazon

So we’re obviously a little behind on some things. Heck I dont even know when the Kindle was released but! I do remember the CEO of amazon going on the Daily Show so that counts for something right? Anyways, It’s very interesting, the concept of paperless books. This is a blog so I feel comfortable giving a small opinion on this. To me I like books. I like my bookcase and would love to in the future have a smallish library for our kids to go read in. “Little jamie you bad, go read now!” Kidding. That’s just me. I cant deny where we are going with technology, less moving parts, more touchscreens, voice recognition, and leaning towards inventions like the kindle, the ipod, iphone, xboxlive will become more of a part of our everyday lives. Here’s the Deets.
