Sony releases OLED Walkman specs

Sony unveiled its upcoming line of iPod Touch competitors earlier this year and much to the surprise of, well everyone, the X1000 series looks impressive. Very impressive in fact. If you can work your way past the marble finish, the X1000 Walkman has a lot going for it and now that the Sony Style Hong Kong site has pushed out the full detailed specs, we’re kind of excited to get our hands on a few of them. Here are the highlights:

  • 3-inch (432 x 240 pixels) OLED touchscreen display
  • 32GB storage
  • NetFront web browser, YouTube support
  • MP3, AAC, WMA, WAV audio / AVC, H.264, MPEG4, WMV video
  • Integrated noise cancellation
  • FM tuner
  • 802.11g/b WiFi
  • 33 hours of music playback, 9 hours of video playback

The one thing it doesn’t have of course, is the App Store. The hype and development community surrounding the iPod Touch will always give it a leg up on competitive offerings. If you’re looking to save some cash (hopefully) and forego the added functionality afforded by apps in exchange for some insane battery life however, the new Walkman might be just what the doctor ordered.

Sony prepares to post first annual operating loss in 14 years… $3 billion

When it rains it pours and over at Sony we’re looking at a torrential downpour the likes of which the company has never seen. Not long ago, analysts predicted Sony would post a massive operating loss of $1 billion on the year. Good call, analysts, only you were about 260 percent off. Sony let the cat out of the bag today and revealed it will post a staggering $2.9 billion operating loss, far and away the worst loss the company has ever seen. Sony’s last losing year, its only other annual loss in fact, was back in 1995 when its movie studio took a beating. Now, 14 years later, a terrible sales year coupled with the economic downturn amount to the worst annual performance the company has reported in its history as a publicly traded company. Sony plans to eliminate a horrifying 16,000 jobs between now and March of next year as part of an effort to shed over $2.8 billion in operating costs during that time frame. In the end, Sony is about to undergo changes the likes of which the company has never seen as it tries to recover from this past year – layoffs, facility closures, salary / benefit cuts and restructuring are now the name of the game.

Download Free PSP Games! Learn to Download and Burn Free PSP Games

There is no doubt that the PSP from Sony is the most powerful hand held video game console in video game history.  The graphics and sound quality can be compared to previous home video game consoles.  With such a huge fan base, people are often curious if they can download free psp games straight from the internet.  Not only are people surprised that they can do this, but they are really surprised that there are a lot of places they can go. Some of the places are legitimate and dependable, while others are just horrible.  Deciding on where you can download free PSP games can be a bit tricky, with all the options that are available to you.

If you are just using a search engine, like Google, to find where to download free PSP games, then you are really rolling the dice. Sure, some of the sites you find might be OK. But you are going to have to go through a lot of garbage as well.  You’re going to find sites that all you are downloading are viruses and spyware.

There are also sites that charge you on a monthly basis for being part of their membership.  Quite frankly, that gets to be real pricey too. As with any membership, you are going to have to pay them every single month whether you used the service that month, or not.

I’d also be cautious of torrent sites.  I used to be a big fan, myself.  But after all the bugs and glitches I got on my computer from using them, I had to call it quits.  Torrents are really a poor option, if you want to download PSP games.

I, myself, have only had good experiences on a couple of sites. The selection of games are astounding.  You could spend the whole day just browsing through all the games.  You have the ability to download free psp games, no matter how old or new.   They also make sure to give you the right software and detailed directions on downloading and transferring your game to your PSP.  I was really lucky I was able to find them.

As a big time fan of the Sony PSP, I had been looking for something like this for quite a while.  I know feel that it is my duty to let other fans of this great system in on the secret.  You can check out my reviews of the sites by going here Download Free PSP Games
