  • Anyone have a bread maker they don’t want? Thinking warm bread in the morning would be a good excuse to actually get up. #
  • Waiting for the delayed Pies v Eagles match to come on tv while I clean up my iPod. #
  • @aflscores I need to speak to you about this feed of live AFL scores. #
  • @danielando love the afl footy blogging we should talk. #
  • I’m really loving all the new cool widescreen format websites that are using the 16:9 aspect ratio for their video and even images. #
  • And the pies pump the eagles by 100 points. All the small forwards had a great game, Dane Swan is a superstar. Bring on the Dees next week. #

The PS3 needs a remote OFF button

I use the PS3 not only as a gaming platform, but also as a way to watch DVD’s, play CDs, and hopefully soon (when they release PlayTV) I’ll watch TV through it.

But the most annoying thing is that I have to go through some sort of complex process to turn off the machine with the remote.  Hold down the PS3 button, then select the “Turn of System” option and press ok.

I have the bluetooth media remote, and it has all sorts of cool funky buttons for navigating the DVD, skipping around menus, and doing things the right way.  Heck it even has an eject button.  But the ability to turn off the PS3 on the remote. No way.

I know this is not much work to do, just emulate the same logic as is physically on the box.  Press to ask about shutdown, hold it down for 3-5 secs and force a shutdown.  I’m sure there are things like safely unmounting games, or something that could cause it but I don’t care.

Make that work and then the PS3 can actually be a true part of a home theatre.

While i’m on the band wagon, when a CD is inserted and the play button is pressed (as long as your not in a game) it should start playing the CD.  I have now replaced my old DVD player with the PS3, and the old DVD player used to serve to play CD’s through the sterio..  You don’t want to have to turn the TV on, get it to the right input just so that a CD can play.  I know inserting a CD should autostart, but what if you stop it, and just want to play it again.

Simple things Sony. Just software patches, or maybe for the power button a new remote, but still simple fixes.
