PSP does not pass Go

Culture
-It's Wednesday, April 20th, I'm Natalie Morris and it's time to get loaded. Sony has made its last PSP go and they make no more. The company has said to have completed production on the portable gaming unit. They do say they will continue to support customers that own these with firmware updates and repairs. So long PSP go, we hardly knew yet. T-Mobile launched an app that will let you make calls through Facebook. The app is called Bobsled by T-Mobile. It lets you call someone else inside a Facebook through Facebook chat. You can leave voice messages in user's inboxes or on their walls. This will work on the new psychic 4G and eventually on Android and iPhone. Facebook is expanding its social reporting tools. These are for users to report when they think they are being harassed. Originally, this let you notify Facebook, but now, you can broadcast this abuse to your entire social network, not really sure who would do that, but the point is that you can, but don't abuse this. You can't report that your mom is accosting you on Facebook. That doesn't count. Microsoft has opened a public data for anyone to test out Office 365. This is Microsoft's cloud-based version of Office Web apps. It has Exchange, SharePoint, and Link as well as document sharing, collaboration, e-mail, IM, and more. You can find the link to test this out in today's show notes. And you can now map your own neighborhood in Google Maps with Google Map Maker. This has been available in other countries for people to add information about less travelled areas to Google Maps. It has now come to the US and this is useful if a street changes in your neighborhood because it does take the map sometime to update. Now you can take that initiative yourself and update it, although your changes will be embedded, so no practical jokes like pretending a bridge is out. AT&T is shutting down buzz.com. We reported on this site when it launched last April, but we haven't heard a peep about this since probably because no one was using it. It was a local listings page like yellow pages with some social elements thrown in so that you could see if your friends had been at the local pizza place you were considering. We couldn't figure out why AT&T would want to do this. It isn't really their business after all and it still isn't. And finally, a robot will take the mound on a major league baseball game tonight. The robot will throw out the first pitch at the Philadelphia Phillies game. It was created by the University of Pennsylvania and can throw between 30 and 40 miles per hour. That's your news of the day, I will see you tomorrow. I'm Natalie Morris for CNET and you've just been loaded.
