Sony PSP UK Launch 1 Sep 2005

In what is expected to be one of the biggest consumer electronics launches of the year, the Sony PlayStation Portable will be available in stores tomorrow, with some stores opening at midnight for die-hard video game fans to pick up the new handheld gaming console. However, unless you've pre-ordered, it is unlikely you'll be able to get your hands on one, as demand has been very strong, and Sony is hoping to sell a million units by Christmas. It has already sold more than 5 million units in Europe and Japan. The PSP is a serious challenge to Nintendo, who up until now has dominated the handheld gaming market. The PSP is a very impressive unit, with excellent graphics and wi-fi access for internet access and online gaming. There's more info on our Sony PSP Review page.

Pimp My Ride on Freeview

Today on the TMF channel (available via Freeview) it has been Pimp My Ride day, featuring the work of LA based car customisation workshop, West Coast Customs. The programme is presented by charismatic rapper Xzibit, and the team of mechanics do some truly amazing conversions on some real heaps of junk. It's like changing rooms for car fans. The programme is pretty generous to the people lucky enough to have their car "pimped", they get all the latest gizmos, like in car flat screens and televisions. However, in real life, you'd probably need some serious cash to get the West Coast boys to help you out. LA rappers like 50 Cent have long been customers, because for them, the world's most luxurious cars still need a little more ... bling.

Girls Aloud Exclusive Gig on E4

A lucky lad won a day with Girls Aloud in the Pepsi Download Competition. The programme aired today on E4, where the girls participated in a penalty shoot out competition and performed a number of their songs, including their latest single, Long Hot Summer, which is released tomorrow. The E4 channel is only available on Freeview, so if you weren't able to view the programme, consider buying a Freeview Box or integrated digital TV.

X Factor Back On Our Screens

We here at Navito are delighted to see the X Factor back on TV. We love the programme, especially during the early stages of the competition when you get to see the complete no hopers. Simon Cowell was back on excellent form with his put-downs, at one stage getting rather upset with Louis Walsh who had decided to put through a guy called Chico. Simon felt that Louis was being ridiculous and asked to see the programme's producer, then going out of the audition room with Louis to tell him to stop making a mockery of the programme.

More strangeness ensued with a guy who said he had recreated the voice of John Lennon and used it to play back some songs he had written. There was also a return of the "Yorkshire Rapper", who appeared in a sketch with a couple of young ladies that we found amusing. Sadly, his rapping skills haven't improved significantly, but it didn't matter, because this time he chose to sing instead. He didn't get through.

Sadly, there were many others who were equally disillusioned in their singing capabilities, and who were investing far too much of their future life plans in winning the competition. One couple had to be escorted out by the burly security guard (who also shadows Simon whilst he is out and about at the venue). Fortunately, there were also a few diamonds amongst the rough, including a young ginger lad who took the judges completely by surprise with the strength of his voice.

If you just can't get enough of X-Factor, there is also extra X-Factor on ITV2, which you'll need a Freeview Box to receive. This series of the X-Factor is sponsored by Nokia, who were featuring the Nokia 3230 Smartphone during the commercial break.

Premiership Round Up

West Ham returned to the Premiership in style, beating Blackburn 3-1. Blackburn scored the first goal, but Teddy Sheringham equalised just after half time, followed by a real cracker from Nigel Reo-Coker.

Everton went down 2-0 to Manchester United, with van Nistelrooy scoring just before half time, and Rooney scoring just after the half from a defensive error by Joseph Yobo, who rolled the ball into the young striker's path.

Tottenham beat Portsmouth 2-0 at Fratton Park after an Andy Griffin own goal and a superbly executed goal from England striker Jermain Defoe in the 64th minute.

Anthony Wins Big Brother 6

In an extremely close vote, Anthony has won Big Brother 6. You could tell that he wanted to win, as he was breathing deeply before Davina delivered the verdict, and leapt up and jumped around the room with excitement when he heard that he had won. More on our Big Brother News page.

Eugene wins 50 Grand!

Big Brother 6 will reach its finale tomorrow, but half the prize money has already been allocated. Eugene was the first housemate to respond to a Big Brother call to the diary room, and found himself presented with £50,000 in a briefcase. He was then given one minute to decide whether to take it or not. The radio engineer decided to take the money, but then started feeling guilty afterwards, ending up in tears in the bedroom. More updates on our Big Brother News page.

New Football Season Arrives

The new football season has arrived, so if you're a big footie fan it's time to explain to your significant other that you'll no longer be available for DIY / visits to the relatives / anything at all, on match days. Why not pick up some footie products from your club to celebrate the start of the new season.

Russian Sub Rescued by Brits

The rescue of the trapped Russian AS-28 submarine, itself a rescue craft, has been achieved with the help of a British Scorpio underwater robot flown out to the scene, which cut the cables tangled around the AS-28.

It makes you proud to be British. Well done to the team involved. The Americans also assisted, and the Japanese had ships on the way to help out. More at Reuters.
