    This was originally from FOX 9 News, but it looks like the story's been taken down or moved to somewhere else on the site. Here's a copy from a forum:

    I strongly suggest you read the whole article - some of the language used is just fucking hilarious. I also recommend the Penny Arcade podcast on the subject.

    Thin air! Power! Race cars! Magic!

    its got an internet browser, big deal. by this logic, the dreamcast is a porn machine, your computer is a porn machine, and many cell phones are porn machines too.

    I wonder if the news has been tipped off to the UMDs that are being sold in Japan. :p 

    In any event, maybe this is why PSP software is selling like shit..... Nah, its because the games suck.

    You might be right. The games are very limited and somewhat dull. That's why kids look up the forrbiddon fruits.

    Since when is internet capability a problem? Besides, the DS is coming out with a browser, but I'm sure it will be severely limited. The only "shame" about it is clueless parents who don't know what's going on around them. The PSP does have parental controls, but I've never used them so I have no idea how they work.

    I saw that story when it aired...that mother was a clueless n00b who couldn't believe her kid could access the internet from the car outside school.

    Welcome to wireless, lady. Never get your kid a laptop.

    The Penny Arcade podcast on this was AWESOME. I can't believe some of the nonsense in that article. My favorite parts are where it refers to wifi as "magic", and this choice quote:

    NO...you don't say! Every other public hot spot in the world has filters that block porn. Why the fuck doesn't this SCHOOL? Did they just hook up a router and call it a day or something?

    :lol :lol :lol :lol  Sorry, I'm just finding this news article way too funny. The only good thing that the PSP is now is just a good way to look at porn without your parents noticing. :D  That and the fact that it's the bastard, red-headed child of the iPod and the Playstation 2. :p  I think I might as well just sell mine. I don't even play the games anymore.

    I had to put porn on mine once because this dude at work would ask me every day “You got porn on that thing yet?” he wouldn’t stop until I had.

    Why the hell are kids allowed to bring game consoles to school, regardless of what else they might be able to do??! Nothing against the PSP or anything, but they never would've allowed something like that when I when I was in school, even if you were just playing it between classes (wouldn't have been enough time anyways).
