Sony PSP

The shape of the console is virtually unchanged, but the Slim and Lite is 33 percent lighter and 19 percent slimmer than the original version.

Contains:

  1. Sony PSP Slim and Lite Console
  2. 64MB Internal Memory
  3. AC Adapter

The Slim and Lite weighs in at approximately 189g compared to the weight of the original PSP which is approximately 280g and measures approximately only 18.6mm in thickness compared to approximately 23.0mm.

The addition of video-out functionality enables you to watch high quality UMD Video, pictures and movies from your Memory Stick Duo, on your TV (please note: cable not included). Using a progressive scan TV and PSP specific cable you can also output gameplay.

Also, the PSP Slim and Lite is equipped with enhanced features that will temporarily store game data from UMD, reducing load time during gameplay. Moreover, the ability to now charge the unit via a USB cable connected to PS3 or PC makes this new model even more mobile and accessible.

HP can make some decent computers but gaming really isn’t their forte. The HP Pavilion Elite HPE-180t is their highest-end computer available. You can customize it and make it a little more beefy but not like any of the gaming specific companies. For the price you pay you get a machine that should handle most games on the higher graphics settings but some you may have to turn down the detail a bit.

iPhone 4

Apple CEO Steve Jobs opened the 2010 Worldwide Developers Conference today by announcing the latest iPhone incarnation, the iPhone 4. As expected, the latest handset features a high-resolution display, a faster processor, and video calling, but it also sports unexpected additions like a new antenna and a gyroscope. It will be available exclusively with AT&T starting June 24. The price with service is fair--$199 for the 16GB phone or $299 for the 32GB device--and both models come in white and black versions. No, we did not hear a peep about the elusive Verizon iPhone, but we didn't anticipate any news on that front.

Massive demand has led to some problems with iPhone pre-orders, according to reports.As deliveries of the hotly anticipated iPhone 4 were set to begin, reports surfaced Monday of more problems with the Apple phone's ordering process.

Last week, AT&T, the exclusive wireless provider for the iPhone, suspended pre-orders after its system was overwhelmed.

On Monday, several technology websites reported receiving messages from readers that their iPhone pre-orders had been canceled without any further explanation.

The 64-bit Revolution

Windows 7, the first PC operating system to be designed primarily for 64-bit processors, launched last year. This means that, for the first time, 64-bit computing for consumers has become a serious possibility.

However, it can be a minefield for the uninformed. What do we mean when we talk about a 64-bit CPU, and how does it differ from the 32-bit processors that have been with us since 1985? What benefits do 64-bit processors offer? And are the advantages guaranteed?

64-bit CPUs have been on the market as mainstream products since the Athlon 64 launched in 2003, and today, most PCs are powered by 64-bit processors. Yet many people are not taking full advantage of this technology since they are still using a 32-bit version of Windows and 32-bit applications.

You may wonder what will happen to the applications you already use that were written to run in a 32-bit environment. Will you have to ditch them and start from scratch? Here we unravel the truth from the hype so you can make an informed decision on whether or not you should abandon 1980s technology and enter the world of 21st century computing.
