How Do You Listen To Yours? Podcast, That Is.

What is the best device to listen to podcasts on? A simple question you might think, but is the answer obvious? Well, as with most things, there is no one correct answer that will fit everyone, but I do listen to a fair few podcasts (can’t think why…) and I have found the perfect podcast device for me. It’s the Sony Playstation Portable. Now hear me out – I know the statistics are that 60% of people listen to podcasts on their PC (one reason that a lot of podcasters have a ‘play’ flash applet on their websites), but I’m

Shaun of The Dead Killed on my PSP

Thank you Sony… grrr. I could have picked up a copy of Shaun of the Dead on UMD Video disk for my recently accquired Playstation Portable for $10 (about £7) which I think is a pretty good price point.

Gamecube Primer

Right then, through Gaming Headlines, I’ve been looking at the N-Gage from a purely gaming perspective (which is actually quite different to the all-encompassing view that I take over at All About N-Gage). It’s refreshingly differnt. So much so that they’ve asked if I can look at one of the areas where they’re needing another writer. The Nintendo Gamecube. Now the last true home console I has was… well… I’ve never had a home console. I’ve got the traditional Gameboy, a Mame Cabinet, and growing up my sister had a NES Famicom (and two games, one was Dizzy from the
