Sync your Sony PSP with your Mac

by Volker Weber

The Sony Playstation Portable may very well be the coolest mobile device in existence. It lets you play great games, watch full-screen video and sports one of the best mobile web browsers out there. That's nice and all, but it's capable of so much more! The Missing Sync for Sony PSP turns your PSP into a killer mobile media and information center by downloading web sites, bookmarks, videos, and important life information, such as your contacts, notes, tasks and calendar events, from your Mac. Easily. Automatically. With style. Read on to learn more.

An amazing set of features. Not free, but well worth the $30 they are asking.

I'm mostly interested in a portable video player. What is the state of video playback on the PSP these days? Can I play full-screen high-quality video on it or does Sony block this feature?

High-quality is blocked if playing a video from the Memory Stick, this "feature" is reserved to the UMD videos. Must be some kind of Sony strategy that I don't understand. Possibly comes from the same department responsible for DRM...

Another fact you should not ignore is that you won't be able to see anything on the screen if the sun is shining. PSP is for indoor use only.

You can have mine if you want.

I will convert to DS Lite.

Well, no PSP for me, then.

I still wonder wether to wait for the mystical video iPod or buy one of the many PMP products out there. Apple is mainly a good choice because of the third party products, especially because of third party batteries now. There are no third party battery offers for all those Korean PMPs.

The Centrix PMP looks tempting, though.
