The Playstation 4 seemed very nice when it was launched. Well it still is, but there are a few very odd decisions by SCE that just don't make any sense whatsoever.

A few picks:

* Will I be able to play MP3s on the PS4 system?
- No.

* Will the PS4 system support media servers or DLNA support in order to stream videos or movies from a home PC?
- The PS4 system does not support client functionality for media servers.

* What PS3 devices can I use with the PS4 system?
- Bluetooth headsets that are currently commercially available are incompatible.
- You cannot use a mouse to navigate PS4. However, certain games may have mouse support.

Seriously? The PS3 thus outperforms PS4 in all media functionality, I can only hope that these are features that didn't make it to the launch version, and will be updated later. After all, the PS3 got a bunch of nice features later....but something tells me I'm just dreaming :-/

Time to upgrade my ancient hard drives (250GB & 750GB), Seagate just came out with a desktop version of their SSHD hybrid drives, and I just had to get one :) Let's see how it performs, it has a 8GB SSD acting as read cache, so loads should be faster (provided the data is in the cache).

I am very curious as well. The wait has been long. I hope the delay is worth it.

Looks like the former Pacific Princess a.k.a. "the Love Boat" is about to be cut into pieces :-( Reportedly she's on tow from Genoa to Aliaga:

Sad thing, I had hoped someone would snatch her up and use her iconic status as a marketing gimmick....

So..the PS4 is now formally announced. I like the look, the controller, HW specs and price. As it works offline it's a huge win over the
"E.T. call home" xbox.

However, requiring Playstation+ membership for online play is a big step backward, I don't think I'll personally pay for it as there are very few PS games that are worth playing online in the first place. I just hope PS4 won't also require + membership for Netflix and other online services as well.

Speaking of online services, Sony's track record is horrific, at least here in Europe. There was a comic store for PSP (but only in a few countries), same with the PS3 video store, PlayTV never got more support etc. Here in Finland we got none of those features, despite many promises to the contrary. So my hopes are super low on that part.

I haven't seen any material on PS3 game compatibility so far ,any updates on that?

Yeah I knew about streaming, but details on that were still vague. But great that services are still free (as they still have their own monthly fees)

Visited the MINI 3rd generation event yesterday....was nice to see such a thing arranged here, and there was certainly a lot of interest towards the newcomer. And it looks much better than the R56! #MINI #MINItheneworiginal

I've had four, 2 Coopers, 1 Clubman and a Countryman. Loved them all and none had so much as a bulb blow. Great cars.

Now that I'm in Helsinki most of the time there's some time to photograph cruise ships. The season is soon at an end but there's still time to catch some nice classics, such as Saga Ruby. #sagacruise #cruiseships
She's on her last season, to be decommissioned next year...probably she'll end up like her former fleet mate, cut up somewhere in the east :-(

Apparently there's a problem with #playstation3 firmware 4.45, I'd advise against installing it for now:

So, Jolla's new phone is finally out. HW/spec wise it doesn't look all that impressive, but it's strength lies within the OS. I just wonder how many people dare preorder one with the very vague specs given...
