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.

Olympus rains down new lenses, updates, titanium E-M5 Mark II

Olympus must be having a blast. Today it is announcing not one, not even two new things. Actually, it's better if we don't count. At the top of their list, of course, comes its two new M.ZUIKO DIGITAL PRO lenses that add wide angle shots to your digital photography arsenal. It is also announcing an upcoming firmware update to both its OD-M E-M1 Micro Four Thirds System camera as well as its still new E-M5 Mark II that improve on their underwater powers. And finally, that last camera is also getting a tinge of class with a limited edition Titanium-armored version.

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.

US Army is testing ray-gun rifle attachment

US Army is testing ray-gun rifle attachment

In the near future, the Army could be getting a futuristic weapons upgrade: ray guns. The electric guns are said to be in testing right now by the United States Army, and their purpose would be to disable electronics when soldiers are out on the battlefield. Though they’re futuristic in nature, they don’t look like cheesy ray guns from classic sci-fi movies. Rather, they’re standard M4 rifles with antennas jutting from the barrel, with the entire attachment being called the “Burke Pulser”.

Lexus RC 350 F SPORT Review – Wolf’s Clothing

Lexus RC 350 F SPORT Review – Wolf’s Clothing

When you're driving a bright orange Lexus RC 350 F SPORT, you quickly realize two things. First, that even when you're in laid-back San Francisco, people are going to stare, even if they’ll try to make it look like they’re not interested. Second, that nobody is going to let you out of junctions or to merge in their lane (though they'll often match your speed, just ahead or behind of you, so that they can peer at the badge; Lexus is still more associated with sensible - maybe staid - sedans than outlandishly swoopy coupes). Like the RC 350 F SPORT itself, relationships on the road are complicated.

Chrome OS blurs lines as Android app porting opens to all

Chrome OS blurs lines as Android app porting opens to all

Google is upgrading Chrome OS to better suit touchscreens and convertibles, as well as throwing open the doors to Android developers wanting their apps to run on Chromebooks. The new version, Chrome OS v.42, is currently in beta, with the most noticeable change being a revamped launcher that integrates Google Now. Promising faster access not only to your most frequently-used apps courtesy of a new shortcut row, the new launcher also includes all the same proactive prompts that you can get on Android phones and Android Wear smartwatches. That's not the only sign of the gap narrowing between Android and Chrome OS, however.

Xbox Music scores OneDrive integration

Xbox Music scores OneDrive integration

Microsoft wants you to "liberate your music," and to help you do that is a new feature that has arrived for Xbox Music: OneDrive integration. It's a relatively simple update, at least as far as the user-end of things go, bringing a "Music" folder to OneDrive in which audiophiles can plop their library of MP3s. Doing so will make that music available on Xbox Music apps on your Windows system, your mobile, Xbox console, and music.xbox.com -- as well as another perk on top of it all.
