Flog archived for your pleasure
Just in time for Christmas, the "All I Want for Xmas" flog (contraction of the words fake blog; blog, of course, is a shortening of weblog; weblog, of course is a compound word created from web and log; and logs are better than bad ... they're good), has been reuploaded by the Consumerist (complete with awful YouTube vids) after its sudden disappearance. Apparently, they wanted to preserve "this importance [sic] piece of internet poo."

Wow, the digg commentors really bashed this corporate blog for many reasons, yet I personally found nothing wrong with it... well, besides the fact that Sony so readily abandoned it when their ruse was uncovered. Personally, I could care less if it was a real person or an advertising gimmick... but Sony needs to learn Burger King's tricks of doing corporate meme's (referring to subservientchicken.com and the fake band CoqRoq). The blog did do one thing right: it actually explain what a PSP does. Something Sony has been very nebulous about in their advertising (or IS the PSP really "Cheese you can listen to outside"?)
And I don't know about you, but the "official" psp site is overly corporate, bulky & bland. And entirely too slow when surfing it on a PSP. At least the blog was small, pretty and to-the-point.

This was a Sony LOG, that's for sure.
