BTW, Wisconsin is unusually hot this summer. Next year I predict that Wisconsin will have hot tropical weather. : (

Hell yeah Wisconsin is hot this summer. Like constantly 90 and higher.

Man, it's so hot we're measuring temperature in Newtons. We even have to use Coulombs sometimes...

We measure temperature in watts, slugs, and joules.

Nope.

Did you know that the average chicken-plucking machine can completely strip a chicken of it's feathers in 14 minutes?

Whats better PSP or DS ?!?!?!

right now i think that DS is better because
psp had hardware flaws/bugs.

1. Pressing on the Right pad button, or the Square button, results in you actually putting pressure on the TFT screen itself. If Sony had increased the size of the unit by a couple centimeters, this wouldn't be a problem.

2. UMD disks ejecting in the middle of play for no reason. This has been admitted by Sony to be a problem which they "would fix", but I have seen no mentions of a fix anywhere.

3. Occasional lock-ups. My guess is heat-related, since the UMDs actually spin much like a CD-ROM, generating heat and general chaos inside of such a small unit.

Pretty sad bugs for such an expensive device. Am I telling you to go get a GBA DS? Hardly -- the DS is an amazing gimmick device (nice to see Nintendo focusing on such DOT-COM-like garbage...).

Anyways, my advice to potential buyers of the PSP is to wait. The price is bound to go down, the "bundle" package will sooner or later be thwarted, quantities will become available, and -- hopefully -- Sony will release a 2nd-generation version or updated model which will address the hardware flaws in question.
