What you need to know about the FDA Trans Fat ban

What you need to know about the FDA Trans Fat ban

The FDA is clamping down on trans fat, telling food companies that they must cut one of the most unhealthy from what they sell within three years. The decision marks the culmination of a lengthy Food and Drug Administration investigation into partially hydrogenated oils (PHOs), which are currently the primary dietary source of artificial trans fat in processed foods.

Sony’s new My Xperia Theft Protection digs deep

Sony’s new My Xperia Theft Protection digs deep

Smartphone theft is a never ending problem and manufacturers and carriers are always scrambling to implement the best solution to both solve it as well as prevent it in the first place. Both iOS and Android have varying solutions, but, in the case of the latter, most of it is moot once the device has been subjected to flashing. Sony's new anti-theft feature, similar to Android 5.1's Device Protection, tries to plug up that hole, making it impossible to use a stolen device without the proper credentials, even after it has been wiped clean.

Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet delayed, again, to end of June

You know that saying that goes "better late than never"? Well, there are times when that brings little comfort to those who wait, especially when it comes to pre-ordered devices. Granted, a month-long delay for the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet might not exactly be a big of a deal, but putting Sony's behavior in the mobile industry the past few months, you'd begin wondering is something were amiss. Be that as it may, UK buyers who have pre-ordered the tablet are now promised that it will ship starting June 29, and hopefully that is really final.

Opera Max now monitors Wi-Fi usage, block data-hungry apps

Opera Max now monitors Wi-Fi usage, block data-hungry apps

Opera is a name you might more readily associate with mobile browsers, but in late 2013 it tried to diverge a bit from that core business. Focusing on one of its key strengths, which is compressing Internet data before it arrives on your device, it launched the Opera Max service that brings that feature to cover not just web pages, but more kinds of data. In the latest iteration of its Android app, it brings two new features to the fold: watching Wi-Fi data usage and shutting down obstinate apps.

Sony event in India could be for the Xperia Z4

Sony event in India could be for the Xperia Z4

If the stars align, we might actually get to see the Sony Xperia Z4, as it is known in Japan, head outside the Land of the Rising Sun, contrary to earlier assurances that the weird device is a Japan-only affair. Sony sent out invitations in India for an event dated May 26, and although the aquatic theme of the invite suggests the Xperia M4 Aqua, there are whispers that it might actually be intended for the start of the global launch of the Xperia Z4 instead.

MediaTek chip leapfrogs Samsung and Apple (in core count, anyway)

MediaTek chip leapfrogs Samsung and Apple (in core count, anyway)

How many cores does your smartphone have? If it's anything less than ten - and it's almost certain to be - then MediaTek has just eclipsed it, its new Helio X20 mobile processor packing a whopping ten cores. The company calls it Tri-Cluster architecture, and is promising the usual mantra of simultaneous power and efficiency. Still, before we discount the chip as just another case of "more is better" thinking, there could well be something to MediaTek's approach.

2016 Cadillac ATS-V First-Drive – BMW baiting

2016 Cadillac ATS-V First-Drive – BMW baiting

The 2016 Cadillac ATS-V is not your grandpa’s Caddy. Neither is it the BMW M3 or M4, despite the team responsible for the sedan and coupe duo admitting that the Bavarians were the primary target. V-Series has been Cadillac’s sledgehammer retort to German Autobahn-bruisers since 2004, and the ATS-V is the third generation of car to wear the badge. It’s straightforward in principle: take an existing Caddy, put it on a diet, slam a beefy engine under the hood, and market it as American power. Now, for the first time, the V-Series line is splitting, and it’s doing so in a mighty interesting way.
