Sony LF-V30 LocationFree Base Station is no SlingBox killer

Sure, Sony was first to market with a place-shifting television technology, but SlingBox did it better. And still do.

DMB-T TV tuner for the PSP gets reviewed

So the PSP can play games, play all sorts of media, be hacked to play emulators, and can do GPS. Now, thanks to those geniuses that Sony seems to be raising from birth, it can also play wireless television signals on its screen.

Some people take their games everywhere. Personally, I generally have my DS with me most of the time. Though I have found myself playing it less lately, mostly because I’ve just been too busy, but I still grab it out of habit. Even though it’s bouncing around in my cargo pocket all day, I never really get too worried about it getting damaged or hurt very badly. Then again I’m not exactly rock climbing with it in my pocket, either.
