    1. Syncing Videos, Photos, Music

      By far the best Mac application for this is PSPWare ($15). Not only does it sync your music, movies and photos, but it backs up your game saves too. It handles video particularly well as PSPWare supports every common movie format (MOV, MPG, AVI, WMV, VOB) so you can easily prepare your DVD library for watching on your PSPâà ’¢â€šÃ €šÃ‚¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â†šÂ¬Ã…¾Ã‚¢s 16:9 wide aspect ratio screen. Highly recommended above other competing syncing and video encoding tools, including iPSP ($20). For the PC you can use the following software : PSPVideo 9 , 3GP Converter. And the Sony Media Manager ($20) for the samething as the PSPWare. There are other APPS as well that are FREE such as PSPMaxMediaManager.
    2. Reading Text files

      PSPBook is an open source software program for Mac OS X that allows you to convert text documents into JPEG images so that it is readable on the Sony PSP handheld gaming system. So far IÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Å¾Ã‚¢ve seen it used to convert a GameFAQ walkthrough for Metal Gear Ac!d so you can check it anytime when you get stuck in a level. Also available for the PC is Jpegbook which basically does the same thing as PSPBook, but for the PC. I just found out there is another program called bookr to read PDF files on your PSP. Thanks Drizzle.
    3. Reading Comics

      eigoManga.com features 60 pages of full-color original manga available for Sony PSP. Check out the stories featured in PSP PAK Issue 1! Seven Seas Entertainment has released free downloadable manga specifically converted for viewing on the PSP. Thing is, Seven Seas only released the first chapters for their four flagships titles: Amazing Agent Luna, Blade for Barter, Last Hope and No Manâà ’¢â€šÃ €šÃ‚¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â†šÂ¬Ã…¾Ã‚¢s Land. Each preview consists of 30 to 40 pages of the story. PSPcmx.com is another great source for PSP-optimized comic books and manga by premier independent publishers. Finally, 8BitJoystick has a wonderful visual tutorial which explains ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â €šÂ¬Ã…“How to Read Web Comics on a PlayStation PortableÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡? via a Mac or PC.
    4. Reading Magazines

      How about a downloadable PSP magazine that you can read from your PSPâà ’¢â€šÃ €šÃ‚¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â†šÂ¬Ã…¾Ã‚¢s screen? Check out PSPOMAG for a high quality widescreen publication on PSP gaming. Here is the direct download page for the first two issues. Another gaming magazine to check out is Gamers Heaven magazine which features original gaming articles across gaming consoles. For a more general selection of magazines, see pspmagazines.com where the author shares all kinds of PSP-formatted magazines for download, including sexy content from MAXIM, FHM, Stuff, IGN.com, Gamespot.com, Sports Illustrated plus some PSP formatted movie trailers.
    5. Bringing Porn Anywhere

      The Babeâà ƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã ‚¬Ã¢ââ⠚¬Å¾Ã‚¢o'matic Portable Gallery features non-nude photos of popular models and movie stars just for your PSP. For a more traditional source of PSP porn, check out ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â €šÂ¬Ã…“Playboy Station PortableÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡? by playboy.com. For the lazy ones, check here for a direct download without the need for registration.
    6. Replacing your TV

      Forget your TV! Besides the Sony Connect site, you can now get PSP formatted videos from the following places:

      - AtomFilms has a section with downloadable PSP movies, but some require a memory stick larger than the standard 32meg one. Lengths range from 7 to 16 minutes. Three of the titles currently available are, In God We Trust, Football, and Rockfish.

      - Heavy made a decent library of hours of entertaining animation and live-action video shorts available for free download on the PSP.

      - Music network Fuse offers PSP owners downloadable content such as the countdown show ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â €šÂ¬Ã…“Daily Downloadâ â‚ ¬Â? and music showcase ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â €šÂ¬Ã…“Stevenà ƒâ€šÃ‚¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â €šÂ¬Ã…¡Ã‚¬Ãà ‚¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚ ¢s Untitled Rock Show.ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢à ƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡à ‚Â¬Ãƒâ€š?

      - 29PSP Video Guide offers a daily download of video media, including music videos and movie trailers.

      - GameSpotâ â‚ ‰â⠂¬Å¾Ã‚¢s PSP Resource Center features gaming video reviews formatted for your PSP.
    7. Ghetto Music Boombox

      Turn it into an MP3 boombox and let everyone know you own the hottest toy in the neighborhood. Just add this PSP Stereo Amplifier. It might not be the loudest speakers around, but itÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ ’¢â€šÃ⠀šÃ‚¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â†¬Å¾Ã‚¢s portable and looks pretty mean.
    8. Playing Multiplayer Games via the Internet

      Canâà ’¢â€šÃ €šÃ‚¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â†šÂ¬Ã…¾Ã‚¢t meet up with friends to play multiplayer PSP games with? How about playing games with other PSP owners via the Internet. XLink Kai is a global gaming network that brings together XBox, Playstation 2, Gamecube and PSP users, in one integrated community. It is software running on your PC, Macintosh or even your Linux router that allows you to play system-link enabled games online for free. Ofcourse we all know the easiest way to do this is to buy a wireless router.
    9. Surf the Internet

      The PSP comes with built-in 802.11b wifi capability that lets you to play games with other PSP users nearby. It also connects to the Internet though you canâà ’¢â€šÃ €šÃ‚¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â†šÂ¬Ã…¾Ã‚¢t do much since thereÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢à ƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡à ‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â⠚¬Å¾Ã‚¢s no built-in e-mail program or Web browser on firmware lower then 2.0 which does have the built in Web browser. However, the game ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â €šÂ¬Ã…“Wipeout Pureâà ƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã ‚¬Ã‚? contains a basic Web browser. ItÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ ’¢â€šÃ⠀šÃ‚¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â†¬Å¾Ã‚¢s only there to access a single page containing game updates. Hereâà ƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã ‚¬Ã¢ââ⠚¬Å¾Ã‚¢s a trick to surf the Internet (more or lessâà ƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã ‚¬Ã‚Ʀ you need to be close to a Wi-Fi hotspot for this to work:
    1. On the PSP, go to Network Settings.
    2. Select Infrastructure mode. Create a new connection and give it a name.
    3. Enter the name, or SSID, of the Wi-Fi hotspot and the password if necessary.
    4. Select the Custom address setting. You can usually leave IP Address Setting to Automatic.
    5. For DNS Setting, select Manual. Enter the Primary DNS 67.171.70.72. This points to a computer set up by Jonathan Terleski, a student at Carnegie Mellon. It replaces the Sony page with a page that has links to Google, Yahoo and other useful sites.
    6. Set it not to use a proxy.
    7. Save the network settings. Make sure the Wi-Fi switch on the left side of the PSP is on.
    8. Fire up ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â €šÂ¬Ã…“Wipeout Pure.ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢à ƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡à ‚Â¬Ãƒâ€š? Go to the Downloads section and select the connection you just created. That should take you online, unless traffic is overwhelming the portal page. If it doesnÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢à ƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡à ‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â⠚¬Å¾Ã‚¢t work immediately, try a few hours later. Not all pages will work in the browser, but hey: you have a PSP and youâà ’¢â€šÃ €šÃ‚¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â†šÂ¬Ã…¾Ã‚¢re online.

    1. Scanning for WiFi networks

      Your Sony PSP can scan for wireless networks and provide you with a decent wireless report. From the PSP Home button, you can go into Network Settings, then select Infrastructure, make a New Connection, then go through the settings until you get to WLAN Settings. This is where you simply select Encryption None or WEP, depending on which kind of wireless youâà ’¢â€šÃ €šÃ‚¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â†šÂ¬Ã…¾Ã‚¢d like to find, then hit Scan. Youâà ’¢â€šÃ €šÃ‚¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â†šÂ¬Ã…¾Ã‚¢ll get SSID, Encryption type, and Signal Strength. Pretty nifty stuff using your PSP as a portable WiFi scanner if youâà ’¢â€šÃ €šÃ‚¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â†šÂ¬Ã…¾Ã‚¢re deciding if itÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ ’¢â€šÃ⠀šÃ‚¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â†¬Å¾Ã‚¢s worth taking your laptop out.
    2. Explosive PSP Grenade (Okay hereâà ƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã ‚¬Ã¢ââ⠚¬Å¾Ã‚¢s a stupid trick!)

      The PSP battery lasts about 4-5hrs, but under constant gameplay, youâà ’¢â€šÃ €šÃ‚¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â†šÂ¬Ã…¾Ã‚¢d get about 2.5hrs or so. The Pelican Power Brick let you extend your playtime at half the cost of buying a second PSP battery. However, you can make yourself an explosive PSP if you use this Pelican Power Brick in an inappropriate manner.
    Clearly thereÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢à ƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡à ‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â⠚¬Å¾Ã‚¢s more PSP trick out there, including listening to podcasts and tracking videoblogs. IÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Å¾Ã‚¢d love it if you could add your ideas in the comments and IÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢ÃƒÆ Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ šÃ‚Â¬ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Å¾Ã‚¢ll include good ones as an update to this article.

    NOTE : I am not the original author of this, but I have added more useful info and will continue to do so going forward.
