I'm thinking about buying a portable gaming system for business trips.

My job requires me to travel a few times a year, for weeks at a time. I'm debating the purchase of a PSP or DS, specifically for travel-entertainment purposes. We've been over this before, but not for a couple of years, so I'm wondering about the State of Portable Consoles. [more inside]

Slingbox on the PSP

As a massive dork & media consumer, I have a Slingbox at home, as well as a PSP. This video alleges to show the PSP being used as a receiver for the Slingbox. I'm sure it doesn't work WELL, particularly, and I'm sure it wasn't easy to set up, but does anyone have any idea how I would go about doing such a thing?

Dead PSP pixels

I just bought a new PSP (Sony Playstation Portable). It has 5 dead pixels at the bottom. Through reading on the internet I discovered that having a few pixels like this is 'acceptable'. Other PSP owners, is this normal or should I trade it for another one with better display quality?
