Default a reason to use your psp

Quote:
If you use a PlayStation Portable and Windows and you don't mind getting a little homebrew on your PSP, we've got a cool tip for you. You can use the PSP as a second monitor for your windows rig. Some uses for the unholy combination: Display your IMs or widgets on a dedicated little screen; reverse the screens and play PSP games on your monitor; or turn off your main monitor and pretend you've got a tiny, little elf computer. The possibilities are endless!
While we don't have a passionate debate about the merits of the PSP over the DS on our site, in my opinion, the ease of using cool homebrew hacks like this one is big mark in favor of the PSP.
Here's a link link to the software you need. Embedded below is a step-by-step guide to the process.

Psp is fairly high res. So it actually would look decent, like a TV, I agree.

This is pretty sweet though. If I have some time tommorrow I might try this out...

then you better go find an Gripshift Game.
Because so far, thats the only exploit they found. They were able to load an 5.02 HEN-A, which kind of lets you do homebrew.
