Minefield: The Really Fast Future of Mozilla's Firefox

50°
320w ago - If you are using Firefox 3 (or even Chrome) you should consider taking a look at Mozilla's Minefield.

This browser (alpha version yet, but stable) would give a new meaning to "fast browsing experience"... Some Firefox extensions aren't supported, but riding the fastest javascript engine on the planet definitely worth a try.

Download: Mozilla Minefield

Minefield's install won't affect your Firefox, so there's no risk trying it. It's fast. Really. And I'm loving it.

PSP-3000 Entertainment Pack Cancelled, Unrelated to Recalls

50°
320w ago - SCEA's Director of Hardware Marketing John Koller announced that they have seen significant interest in the Ratchet & Clank Size Matters PSP Entertainment Pack in North America, which includes the updated PSP-3000.

As a result, they will be streamlining their PSP hardware lineup and will no longer be offering the previously announced 4GB Memory PSP Entertainment Pack.

Many customers had received e-mails from online retailers to inform them that their orders for the 4GB Memory PSP Entertainment Pack had been cancelled.

This fueled rumors that there could be a recall of the PSP-3000 because of scanline issues with its screen. Consumers who are interested in a larger capacity memory option can purchase a 4GB PSP Memory Stick PRO Duo, which will be available this fall for $44.99 (MSRP).
 

Speed up your PlayStation Network Downloads with Auto-Installs!

100°
321w ago - Tonight I was downloading some content I had been missing out on the last week due to band rehersals and some light work here and there...

Now normally I would've just background-downloaded all of my stuff and walked away from it until it was done - I'm glad I didn't.

A big complaint with the PSN is the fact when you download something of the store you then have to install it. This means the long process becomes longer...

Well, tonight I found out that if you que up all you want to download and individually download it from the store menu or your drop down download list, without doing a background download, it not only increased my speed from an average of 1MB every 4 seconds to 1MB every 1 second to 2 seconds, but it also pre-installs your content for you. So you don't have to go back out and manually do it from your PlayStation 3 XMB.

Now, I have a fast connection and I often average 1MB per second anyways, but a lot of times it's not a constant 1MB per second... Sometimes it drops down to where I am only getting 1mb every 3 to 4 seconds - With this method it was much faster than just putting them all on the background and letting it do it for me.

It might not be as convenient, but it sure went a lot faster. I got over 1.4GB of downloads in under 7 minutes flat...
 

Future Firmware Updates to Allow PS3's CPU Power Use on PSP?

100°
321w ago - It has been revealed that future Firmware updates may enable the PlayStation Portable to cope with more processing while using computational resources on the PS3 for areas where the PSP lacks resources.

So we could have some seriously strong interaction between the two systems - processor sharing, here we come baby!

To quote: SCE (Matsui) on future firmware updates:

In future updates, there are thoughts of raising the level of interaction, in the sense of "interactive entertainment".

Among those ideas are enabling the PSP to cope with more processing while using computational resources on the PS3 side for areas where the PSP lacks resources, so we think that interaction between the two systems will be possible by having them successfully complement each other.

In addition, as with Life with PlayStation, we take the approach of making the PS3 something people will use from when they wake up, like switching it on to watch the news in the morning.

Since we believe that there must still be many areas in with both the PS3 and PSP can be of use in people's daily lives, we want to continue to make firmware updates with this perspective in mind.
