I finally gave in, upgraded my firmware to a never-be-able-to-run-homebrew-code-again level (version 2.6), and started playing Me and My Katamari. If you're already a fan of the series, you'll enjoy this game too.

Two things surprised me about the PSP: 1) the screen is just so gorgeous. I'd heard it was nice, but it's *really* nice. 2) the built-in web browser + wifi is pretty killer. The PSP has faux "tabs" so you can open three web pages at once. It didn't take long until I was surfing Slashdot and checking Bloglines. I took a photo which you can see here:

(This image was obviously taken before I found out that Google traded me to Yahoo! for Jeremy Zawodny. I'll see if I can get a picture with Yahoo! on that screen sometime soon.)

All in all, I'm enjoying the PSP a lot--it's a really nice little device.

Hey Matt--

In the comment form where it says 'Type "Jeremy" below (required)', I'm wondering if that is now "M-A-T-T"

Can you let me know, please, so I can comment? Thanks. :)

Since you are working for Yahoo! now.. shouldn't that photo have Yahoo! on it instead of Google? ;)

This is some kind of April Fools joke, right?

Ha ha.

meade, it's no joke. I've joined Yahoo! and Jeremy is going to Google. To keep things easier for readers, I'm posting over here and Jeremy is posting on mattcutts.com.

Gary R. Hess: thanks for mentioning that. I've updated the site to have a Yahoo! picture instead. Not too hard to change since it's my blog now. :)

Aaron, I haven't changed all the code over yet, but I'll put that on the list to switch; thanks for mentioning it!

Baaaahahahahah. Matt you wienie. First I thought this was a joke. Then I read more and when no way, is this possible. My first thought was oh no, there goes everyones easy rankings in Yahoo (you just being at Yahoo would scare the spam away and make it much harder to rank).

Then I read the comments and I see it was April 1st.

Sony should really let other companies rebrand the PSP + let them do with it whatever they wish. Im sure a Yahoo! PSP would be nice ...

Please check out www.pspdrive.com

2.0 coming soon!
