Isn't "Playstation" technically one word? Shouldn't the abbr. be "P3" not "PS3"?

Atheism is a terrible bet. It gives you no chance of winning the prize.

I've never seen Sony refer to it as a "Play Station". They always put them together. It's one word.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ken_Kutaragi

Despite this hostile atmosphere to video games, Kutaragi managed to persuade Sony to fund his research into the Super Famicom CD. These efforts resulted a device called the "Play Station", a console that would be compatible with both Super Famicom games and software released on a new format called the Super CD. Eventually, the partnership between Sony and Nintendo faltered due to licensing disagreements, but Kutaragi and Sony continued to develop their own console. Despite being considered a risky gamble by other Sony executives, Kutaragi once again had the support of Sony CEO Norio Ohga and several years later the company released the original PlayStation. The success of the PlayStation led to him heading up the development of more consoles like the PlayStation 2, and the latest console in the series, the PlayStation 3.

I hate burned food. It just leaves this terrible aftertaste in your mouth for hours. I'd rather just throw it in the garbage if it's burned.
