VW Trained Parking turns e-Golf into its own valet

VW Trained Parking turns e-Golf into its own valet

Turns out Elon Musk isn't the only one working on cars that can be dismissed to park themselves, with Volkswagen confirming it, too, is developing a semi-autonomous valet system for its cars. Dubbed VW Trained Parking, it builds on the company's existing Park Assist - which can take control of the steering wheel when reverse-parking or existing a parallel parking space, leaving the driver to handle the pedals - by adding the ability to track and learn commonly-completed maneuvers like parking outside your home, and then replicate them later on.

Mercedes teases self-driving CES car

Mercedes teases self-driving CES car

Mercedes-Benz may usually stick to Teutonic reserve, but the car company can't seem to let CES 2015 approach without dropping a few teasing hints about its latest concept technology. Although the Consumer Electronics Show may more commonly be associated with big TVs, hyperbole-filled phones and tablets, and more Bluetooth speakers than attendees have ears to listen to them, a growing rise in car tech levels have seen some of the big names in automotive wade in themselves. However, while Mercedes may only have a vague outline of a car to whet our appetites, that doesn't mean we're entirely in the dark about what magic is behind the scenes.

Minecraft: Pocket Edition was Christmas Day’s top grossing iOS app

It's expected for some of the most popular apps for Apple's iPhone and iPad to get a boost in sales around Christmas. Whether it's people taking advantage of holiday discounts or redeeming gift cards, Christmas is a good time to have a popular app listed high on the download charts. But this year, one paid app in particular made the most money across the entire iOS platform on Christmas Day: Minecraft: Pocket Edition. That the $7 game did so well is no doubt a success for developer Mojang and new franchise owners Microsoft.

Marriott wifi blocking plan gains opposition from Google, Microsoft

Marriott wifi blocking plan gains opposition from Google, Microsoft

If you're like many of us, a trip to the hotel usually means eschewing the available WiFi in favor of setting up your own hotspot. The reasons for this are numerous: speeds are usually better, you don't like the risks of hotel WiFi, and you can side-step any fees the hotel might require. Marriott was recently fined $600,000 for jamming guests' hotspots at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Convention Center, and around the same time it had petitioned for the right to continue blocking guest hotspots, citing security reasons.

Ubuntu Phone delayed again to next year

Ubuntu Phone delayed again to next year

It seems that Samsung isn't the only one experiencing delays in getting a new player in the mobile market out of the woodwork. Canonical, the commercial company behind the open source Linux-based Ubuntu OS has been quoted to have said that its much-hyped Ubuntu Phone won't be announced until early 2015. And that's just the announcement of the availability and not the availability itself, which can, of course, be delayed repeatedly, as Samsung's dance with its own Tizen OS has proven.

Jawbone UP3 delayed until 2015

Jawbone UP3 delayed until 2015

Jawbone has delayed the release of its new flagship activity tracker, the Jawbone UP3, pushing the sensor-toting wristband back into early 2015 as it grapples with production. Announced back in November, the ambitious wearable introduces a bioimpedance sensor alongside the usual movement tracking, with which Jawbone is promising not only heart rate monitoring but - with future firmware updates - new metrics like galvanic skin response, respiratory rate, and hydration rate. That flexibility could give UP3 the edge over rival health bands, including the upcoming Apple Watch, but it's also seemingly presenting issues for Jawbone actually getting it out the door.

Lumia 435 leaked to be Microsoft’s entry-level contender

Lumia 435 leaked to be Microsoft’s entry-level contender

It is no secret that Microsoft wants to take its smartphone platform to devices even lower on the hardware spectrum than its Lumia 5XX series. That desire might actually soon take flesh, if this Lumia 435 that has been repeatedly sighted and passed around the Internet really does take flight. This low-end smartphone from Microsoft Mobile will practically fill in the missing slot in Microsoft's lineup, a slot that has so far been occupied by the non-Windows Asha line and a bit by the Android-powered Nokia X.

Xbox One’s November sales outpace PS4 for the first time

Xbox One’s November sales outpace PS4 for the first time

It seems Chrstimas came a month early for Microsoft. We saw it last week and now another independent research confirms it. Microsoft's Xbox One has indeed, for the first time, outsold the PlayStation 4 in the US, though only considering the month of November. The recent holiday shopping spree was a big break for Microsoft's console, beleaguered by its rivalry with Sony's counterpart. That victory was not without its price, however, as the repeated price cuts implemented over the past months are believed to have been Microsoft's ace.
