After yesterday’s botched launch, Life with PlayStation has gone live and is now available for download. Which we are doing as we type.
There’s more detail on the US PS Blog. From the post:
Life with PlayStation provides a stunning interactive globe, a 3D world map that you can twirl around to see live cloud movement courtesy of the University of Wisconsin, combined with up-to-date weather information from the Weather Channel, top news headlines provided by Google news, and live web cam images via the Earth Television Network — all localized to the select city. And why not have your favorite soundtrack playing in the background while you go through your morning ritual (just think, no TV commercials and teasers to find out if you need to bring an umbrella to work)? You’re on your own for your morning caffeine fix.
There’s also an explanatory video, courtesy of SCEA, after the link.

“Today, while testing the application, Life with PlayStation was available for download temporarily, by mistake,” said the spokesperson.
Which is why some people got it, but you didn’t. Still no date on when the app’s going to be released.

According to this thread on the US PS Boards, Life with PlayStation is now Live.
The Folding@home icon on the PS3 dash has now been replaced with a Life with PlayStation symbol, according to reports.
Just checking this now.
Update: Well, we can’t get it to appear, but there is a Folding@home update there. Should see some videos soon if it’s legit.
Update 2: We’ve just checked European, Japanese and US accounts, and we can’t see any sign of it.
Update 3: Something’s going on. There’s a video of it working after the break.

According to this US PS Blog post, Life with PlayStation will release in August, not July as previously hoped. Obviously. And July has now ended.
Due to a few procedural matters, the new service will make its way to PlayStation fans in August,” said SCEA R&D man Noam Rimon.
“Rest assured, Life with PlayStation will be a service that introduces a new way to interact with your PS3. By bringing information from around the world into your living room, Life with PlayStation will offer a variety of interactive content and channels on a visually stunning worldwide map interface.”
