Mix: PSP vs. video iPod, Network TV, iPod porn

PSPworld has an editorial comparing the Sony PSP with the new fifth-generation iPod. “The PSP is a wonderful game machine, and it is a joy to own,” the site says, “but if Sony doesn’t pull together and start taking advantage of the PSP’s multimedia capabilities, they are going to lose sales of PSPs to the video iPod. It’s just that simple.”

Mark Cuban, who became a billionaire in the content delivery business during the dot-com boom, says this week’s announcement by Apple and ABC has “enabled a new revenue stream which if it grows, could definitely be the revenue stream that saves primetime network TV.”

Adam Curry, president of PodShow Inc. and one of the pioneers of podcasting, said the new fifth-generation iPod is going to open up doors to portable pornography. “Porn is just going to be huge,” he told listeners to his Daily Source Code podcast this week. “The porn guys are just going, ‘holy moly,’”—in gratitude for the new market that’s opened up to them.
