If I can get the PS3 to show stock-charts live on the TV... that would be nice. I could then justify the OFFICE buying this for me! :roll:

I think thats possible so long as the PS3 has a net browser????

I'm not sure - im no console expert but if the dreamcast had a built in internet browser then im sure the PS3 would have 1 if not an even better one.

If that is the case - log on to reuters or yahoo finance or bloomberg or whatever.

EH? I fold everyday when I get home from work. I have been using it to play music for ages.
Now I got the world news and temperatures. Very handy to use after work even more so now.:rockout:

That I will agree on I have no use for it and cant say I spent no more than enough time to figure out how to use it. I have used it on my PSP a few times.
