A “version of” Google Play may come to China

If you’re in China, Google is hard to come by. The search company pulled out of China in 2010 due to repeated hacking attempts and censorship. There’s also the sticky situation of China’s desire to have all information about Chinese users stored in their country. We’re not sure how, but a new report suggests Google will be bringing — of all things — the Play Store to China. Well, a “version of” the Play Store, at least. Light on details, the new report is intriguing nonetheless.

Samsung Tizen smarpthone interface leaked

You have to hand it to Samsung. It is not giving up on Tizen.

Kim Dotcom banned from Mega over piracy claims

Kim Dotcom banned from Mega over piracy claims

As you might recall, Kim Dotcom -- the subject of numerous legal battles and founder of file-hosting service Mega -- soft-launched his own single album Good Times back in January. It has been available through Mega for some time now, but began having troubles back in September when IFPI -- which represents many big-name music labels -- started hitting it with takedown requests over alleged copyright infringement.

Surface Pro 3’s latest ad takes jab at the MacBook Air

Microsoft rolled out its latest ad for the Surface Pro 3 over the weekend, and in it is the same tired theme we've seen before: comparison with an Apple product, in this case a MacBook Air. It's short and sweet at 30 seconds, and focuses on the features offered by the Surface Pro 3 ("...it has got a USB!") while a MacBook Air sits next to it relatively ignored. Festive imagery is sprinkled throughout, no doubt encouraging viewers to grab one for the holiday season.

2015 Lexus IS 250 Review – Distinctly Divisive

2015 Lexus IS 250 Review – Distinctly Divisive

It's never been tougher to be a small, sporty sedan. Luxury buyers are being wooed by the segment above, while the gradual up-speccing of full-sized sedans below is making it harder and harder to stand out. Factor in the growing number of more practical coupes on one side, and nimble sports crossovers squeezing in from the opposite direction, and the risk of being seen as a staid four-door is considerable. Lexus’ answer to that in 2013 was the new IS, a stark departure from the company’s previous playbook, and it’s the 2015 IS 250 that’s been on my drive trying to coerce me from behind the wheel of a BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C Class, or Audi A3.
