We test drive the PSP's component cable

340w ago - Back in July Sony announced that the new Slim PSP would come complete with a video out port, allowing users to plug the PSP into a TV and see everything on a big screen.

However, the cable required to do this, a PSP component cable, has been hard to get hold of. We had to get ours from Ebay. But now we've got it and put it to the test, we have to say, we're suitably impressed.

For £12.99, the price of the official cable, you can transfer games from the small PSP screen to a big screen TV. There's no lag to speak of nor any drop in quality once the image reaches your telly box. And although the games don't output full screen, as you can see in the video below, it's still certainly big enough to see what you're doing from a distance.

Slide in a UMD movie on the other hand (you do have one right?), and the display fills the screen while looking equally as good as it does on the PSP.

Overall, if you have a new PSP Slim, but still crave to get your big screen gaming fix, then this is well worth the money. Still not convinced? Check out the video below to see the cable in action.

Old Zune users get ALL the new features!

342w ago - From Gizmodo:

"The first generation 30GB Zune–which 1.2 million of you already purchased–is getting all the new Zune's features. All. Sure, the new Zune is more of a half step forward than a completely new design. But Microsoft's done something fantastic here by rewarding first gen buyers with cool new stuff that also happens to be free by software upgrade. And talk about spin– Microsoft just took a middling jump in hardware and turned it into a genuinely good move for loyalists (as well as a PR miracle). Are you paying attention Apple?"

Amazon launches DRM-free music download store

Most albums are priced from $5.99 to $9.99. The top 100 best-selling albums are $8.99 or less, unless marked otherwise."

Makes you wonder if apple is truly serious about having DRM free media on the itunes store. Locking people in with DRM has undoubtedly helped them move ipods.
