iTunes Podcasts !
Nothing to do with games, sorta...
To make this gaming related I'll mention that there are lots of gaming related podcasts in the iTunes list... but StarStuff is what you really want if you are a geek :-)

Sony PSP - part II
Last week I purchased a Sony PSP (Japanese, v1.50). I've been playing some Tony Hawk but I think I'm getting old because the game uses so much skateboarding terminology with the assumption that you know it - and I don't :-)
Meanwhile I've just ordered Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee which is very closely related to Maro Golf on the GBA (probably my favourite handheld game over the last couple of years)
But did I buy it just for the games ? No.
Some of the things I'm doing with the PSP:
(I'm buying a "512mb memory stick duo pro" for these, theres not much you can do with the standard 32mb stick)
- Slideshow of some of my favourite photos
- Converting video to play on the PSP with PSP-Video9 (Freeware)
- Trying some Homebrew with the PSP (there is now a KX-Exploit for v1.50 firmware). With any luck someone will get a basic version of Mame running on it :-)
- hoping to find a basic webbrowser to use the PSP over my wireless network
I will not, however, be using it to play MP3's - I have a perfectly good iPod to do that :-)
I won't be buying any UMD movies either!
On an unrelated note, Battlefield2 ROCKS! - the squad play and commander play mean that there is some great teamwork going on in some of the games I've played, very promising! I play as "Zaph" on the OGN, Internode and Bigpond servers - but only the "Ranked" servers.
