yeah i liked the menu before the last update as far as it being all over the screen when you're trying to watch a music video. its about the only ps3 app i use and it is really quite good. i got stung by that bleeding music thing with the free trial then they billed me after that because i didn't cancel the free trial.

but anyways i hope they have improved it now and not gone stupid with trying to be too good.. if it ain't broke don't fix it.. eh!

i can't believe its not on the vita. would be perfect.. you need to work for sony marketing homer.
