Nor does Sony. Some things have been removed indeed, but they've also added many things compared to the launch. It is a pity for those who care about the things that are removed, but most people seems to not care about it. Otherwise the PS3 wouldn't sell like at the current level that it is selling.
Pity to hear that you get sick to your stomach from every PS3 firmware update. Isn't it best to sell your PS3 if it affects you this much? Personally i don't think i would keep a device that made me sick. I'd rather sell it to get rid of the unnecessary problem and go for some other alternative instead (in this case, PC, Xbox 360 and/or Wii)

It's true that the US PlayStation now has a couple of Apps like on Xbox 360, but I suppose if it wasn't Microsoft that started it I doubt $ony would've added them at all. They'd probably forget or never cared.
You know, PS3's internet browser could be updated.. I wish.
Out of curiousity, what features do Microsoft add? I know that they add things for those who pay for Xbox Live Gold, but what features do they add that every Xbox 360 owner can use?
I don't think that Microsoft is the pioneer within adding apps. The market has gone a lot more digital over the last few years. Streaming of videos and such has become much more common. These apps makes both Microsoft and Sony money, so i think that they would have added these apps regardless of what the competitor does.
The PS3 browser was updated in firmware 4.10.
