PSPgo with Skype Voice Over IP Service Replacing Cell Phones

250°
254w ago - Many are now turning their Sony PSPgo consoles into a cell phones using the Skype VoIP service, which requires an upgrade in service and a small fee but is free to standard users.

If you're not familiar with Skype, it's a voice over IP service, which allows you to call other Skype users over the Internet.

This is done directly from any PC, or in this case any PSPgo (or PSP) connected to the Internet.

To quote: "Skype offers a number of services; the first is their service that provides unlimited calls to landlines, and mobile phone numbers. The second is a phone number plan, which allows you to have your own personal phone number and access to inbound calls.

To access these features, Skype charges a very small fee. To make unlimited calls to land lines, and mobile phones, there's a monthly fee of $1.95. To get your own personal phone number, the monthly fee is a whopping $7.50.

With these two services, you could send, and receive calls at any Wi-Fi Hotspot around town, and if your in one of the Wi-Fi Zones (states/city that have Wi-Fi everywhere), then that's all you need, and enjoy your monthly phone bill of only $10.25."

Extremely short instructions: put this savegame on your Wii (if you have one on there already that you want to keep, back it up first!), start the game, walk to the "art room" (find some walkthrough on the intertubes if you cannot find it), look at the second character, enjoy!

Intel's Next Two Atom Chips Aim for Smartphones

50°
276w ago - Will Intel's Atom chip make it into smartphones? That's an interesting question.

And it's one the company seemed intent on addressing at its investor conference earlier this week- and in particular, at a session focused on the next generation of Atom chips given by Anand Chandrasekher, head of the company's Ultra Mobility Group.

The next chip is called Moorestown, and it's due out early next year. While this chip is likely to be used mainly in products such as netbooks, Chandrasekher said it would also allow for a broader use in "mobile internet devices." That chip will be followed in 2011 by Medfield, which is the version really aimed at smartphones.

The smartphone market has been asking for a number of features that Intel chips haven't been able to provide, Chandrasekher acknowledged, such as lower total power, lower power when used, all-day battery life, performance, and broadband connectivity. Intel is taking a number of generations to get there.

The existing Atom chip (known as Menlow) takes the power the chip uses when it is active 10 times lower than the power of previous Intel chips, primarily designed for notebooks. The Moorestown version focused instead on bringing down the power the chip uses when it is idle (which is most of the time). He said Moorestown...
 

Are Sony the Smart Ones with the PS3 in this Console Race?

200°
291w ago - There's no doubt that Sony has made mistakes this generation such as underestimating both Microsoft and Nintendo. Another mistake is relying too much on the brand image and not pumping out enough marketing.

However, if you have a look at the bigger picture, I think Sony are the smart ones in this console race, and I'm going to tell you why...

The Internet has been full of articles on why the PS3 is in trouble and how Sony have made mistakes since it launched. So I thought it would be right to give a fresh opinion on the matter.

There's no question that the PS3 has had a rocky start; it launched with very few quality games and it was argued by many that at its inception there was very little incentive to buy the PS3 over the older and cheaper Xbox 360.

The Xbox also had more titles and many multi-platform games that felt so much better than their PS3 counter-parts. As we approach the PS3's two-year anniversary in Europe however, the console is looking very different.

There are many quality titles under the PS3's belt including some impressive exclusives like LittleBigPlanet and Resistance 2. With Killzone 2 and hundreds of other titles just on the horizon, why does the media still bash the PS3?

Could it be 'revenue related'. The huge majority...
