Personal Practical Experience of PSP Cable

   One of the reasons I decided to buy a Slim PSP” _mce_href=””>PSP”>”>PSP Cable was for this new TV Out feature and after seeing the Japanese TV ads for it it seemed good and the borders not too bad. So anyway I finally got hold of a component PSP cable for my PSP Slim yesterday. I had to order it in from overseas, as Its very hard to find one here in Spain. (If its even out here yet !!) I have yet to see one of them available, just the plain AV PSP cable which you can only use for video and photos etc, Just not games. Which I think is a waste of time. I don’t know why people wouldn’t want to play games as well.

So I connected this to my TV, first I’ve noticed the cable length is not what i thought it was going to be..Its about 2.5 m or less. And that means it doesn’t reach from my TV to the couch!! That’s not good! upon selecting TV-out through the XMB I was happy to see a full screen menu. Not bad I though, looks great. However when loading up Metal Gear Solid Portable, it went from having small borders on the PSP boot slash image to the games massive borders! (See below)

Nice huge borders you got there Snake!

Now I recall the Japanese advert showing smaller borders on the TV out from thePSP multifunctional Cable Slim, maybe false advertising is legal in Japan? Or that bravo TV was using a zoom function…. My guess is they were using the zoom function on the TV. So in 16:9 output and I’m seeing almost 40-45% of my TV’s screen is lovely black borders. I understood there would be borders, but I never believed it would be almost half the screen. If your lucky you TV can zoom in on the picture. But at the cost of being more pixelated . Thankfully I can zoom, but only vertically arghh…Damn so that’s no good either.

  There must be a reason for this Sony wouldn’t give us such border without reason surely?. CPU power is needed for up scaling and maybe the little unit just can’t do both without a loss in fps. Once you return to the PSP screen its looks so sharp and more detailed.

I’m left with that disappointed feeling from my TV-out PSP experience.

The Good: Having a portable movie player. Finally being able to play PSP games on your TV. Option to use it like a portable MAME box. Those arcade games look good on the TV.

The Bad points: Borders much larger than originally advertised 40-45% of the screen is a border. PSP Cable length is too short.

   After the PSP review, I couldn’t wait to share this accessory with you. This absolutely ridiculous-looking contraption is the Sony
PSP Cable Converter, a device you’ll need to buy for your PSP Go if you don’t want all those PSP 1000–3000 accessories to become useless. That’s right, almost all of the original PSP accessories will not work with the Go.

What do you think of these boots from Aldo?

I need a pair of rain boots and I was considering these black ones from Aldo..

What do you think? I know the Hunter ones are really popular but they’re expensive and I’d rather not have shoes everyone else has..

Cute but very plain. Because it’s plain black, I think lots of people will have boots like these so try looking for patterned rain boots. They have some cute ones at Target!

Playsuits & Jumpsuits – The New Vintage Must Have!

Let’s face it, the jumpsuit is probably one fashion garment which was not in your wardrobe last year, so credit crunch or not, it may make sense to buy at least one version to suit your shape. A girl has to wear something right? So why not make it vintage and uber fashionable?

Cute, versatile and utterly gorgeous, anyone who’s anyone is either talking about or wearing on of the current coolest fashion trends in the form of the jumpsuit or playsuit. This fabulous new trend started when top designers such as Alexander McQueen showed jumpsuits on the worlds finest catwalks. McQueen presented both these glamour girl body-con jumpsuits designed with crystallised fabric – the jumpsuit material has been embedded with luxury crystal pieces that glimmer in a way that only top notch Austrian crystal can. The result took the jumpsuit into the realm of exotic, sexy and stylish evening wear. Us mere mortals may favour something more down to earth, but each one of us can admire the figure-defining cut of these jumpsuits which are most reminiscent of knitted lace jumpsuits of the seventies.

Following this massive seal of approval, there is now a wide array of playsuits and jumpsuits available on the high street but each and every one takes it’s inspiration, shape, colour or print from the vintage fashion of the past. So this is our plea to all you fashion conscious women out there – don’t buy sub-standard remakes from high street stores, buy the original, well made and long lasting vintage clothing that preceded it!

Somewhere between the sophisticated 1970′s wide leg flowing jumpsuit and the1980s glitter filled retro jumpsuit, is the softer fashion playsuit. What we see here is a more fun version and which is cropped or designed as a shorts playsuit.  Vintage playsuits are huge this summer. In a variety of colours, styles and prints, looking great with gladiator sandals and lace up pumps for the cute yet edgy indie look. Going through into autumn/winter we expect to see the very same beautiful and popular vintage playsuit teamed with luscious chunky opaque tights, brogues and long line cardigans. A more mainstream alternative being the never tiresome and ultra cosy combo of playsuit, leggings and Ugg boots.

Fashion students have always learnt how styles of a previous generation are recreated and resurrected in a new form or style. We see this happening in many lines of modern day fashion, and has prompted the resurgence in the sales of classic vintage dresses, vintage coats, vintage tops, vintage jeans, vintage skirts and vintage accessories. What we are seeing in now is a major fashion trend for trousers to join up with tops, the result is the super retro jumpsuit, flying suit or playsuit.

But the all-in-one is certainly no new invention, we have seen this shape in key fashion going back to 1950′s swimwear.  Most of us think of the eighties when we see jumpsuits but the birth of the jumpsuit was actually in the late sixties. In art houses and chic rich haunts worldwide, the shorter playsuit and longer jumpsuit was making waves. It was classic and simple, think Coco Chanel black and white monochrome beneath a Studio 54 backdrop. In the seventies we saw more loose and flowing trousers with more fitted tops and halternecks. Perfect with the long wavy flicked hair of the era. In the eighties the jumpsuit was so much more dramatic with big shoulder padding, bare backs, tapered trousers, candy colours, sequins, glitter and feathers. And of course as fashion progressed through the years, so did the array of prints and colours, vivid Pucci and jazzy op-art making the biggest impact of all. And of course we cannot forget the brief resurgence of the all-in-one in the warehouse filled nineties with boiler suit rave chic, all neon, zips and whistles. Perhaps one trend that won’t be making a reappearance!For now, narrow and tapered trouser legs have risen above the ankle. High waist bands and peg-top carrot shaping means what was lost at the ankle has been taken care of above waist. This season amid black, navy and grey styles you also need to find plain bold bright colours such as a santorini blue, ravishing red or tangerine orange.

When shopping for vintage jumpsuits and vintage playsuits, look for satin, cotton, viscose and printed patterned fabrics, especially floral fabrics and ditsy or dotty prints.Don’t be put off jumpsuits when you see a shapeless mass on your coat-hanger. These are garments which need bodies to fill them, and heels to stride out, only then will the jumpsuit burst into life and seriously turn some heads! A fashionable jumpsuit has the advantage of meeting evening/cocktail/occasion wear half way, and may well be the solution for those moments when you have no idea what to wear. Like the vintage dress, vintage jumpsuits are an easy to wear all-in-one fashion, but if carefully chosen, have the advantage of being able to be glamorous whilst enabling the wearer to pursue more active pursuits and weather changes with discretion! And don’t forget if you are worried about your back view there are many long line cardigans and vintage trophy jackets that could ensure the viability of this look.
