Games As everybody had been more or less anticipating for months now, Sony has released the Playstation 3 Slim, a much smaller, lighter, and more energy-efficient variant of the regular Playstation 3. There's good news for people who held out on the PS3 because it was too expensive, and there's bad news for those of us who liked the idea of running Linux on the PS3.

Not being an open platform anymore may end up being a good thing.

It seems that a closed platform is the most effective way to get developers interested. For instance iPhone and PSP are closed, but have a lot of developer interest, while Maemo (Nokia N810) is open but nobody cares to create applications.
