These VW Android Auto and CarPlay cars are in showrooms now

Volkswagen has launched its new Modular Infotainment Platform, MIB-II, with the first cars with the new touchscreen head-units arriving in dealerships complete with Android Auto and CarPlay. The new technology, announced at CES 2015, switches to a more modular approach, as well as baking in more apps and wearables. It's an ambitious roll-out, too, with VW planning to put MIB-II into all but a handful of its 2016 models.

Olympus Air A01 first-impressions: Modular Micro 4/3

Olympus Air A01 first-impressions: Modular Micro 4/3

You’d be forgiven if, after taking a quick glance at Olympus' new Air A01 doohickey, you dismissed it as a lens of some sort. In fact it’s more, much more. Think of the Air A01 as a Micro Four Thirds or Micro 4/3 camera minus the lens and display: ultra portable, allowing you to place or mount it anywhere your creativity takes you, and paired up wirelessly with an iOS or Android device. While add-on cameras are something we’ve already seen from Sony, Kodak, and others, Olympus’ decision to go for interchangeable lenses sets the Air A01 apart; read on for my first impressions.

ZTE Nubia Z9 has some interesting “invisible” bezels

ZTE Nubia Z9 has some interesting “invisible” bezels

It seems that there will be a new trend, at least among Chinese OEMs at first. Samsung's Galaxy S6 edge seems to have sparked a new idea about how to deal with bezels. OPPO's upcoming R7 is already known for "faking" its bezel-less looks, almost a literal smoke and mirrors, particularly the mirror part. ZTE seems to have somewhat followed suit, but it is taking it an interesting step further. The ZTE Nubia Z9 actually does have a bit of border, though you can't almost see them, but those borders can be used to do things as well.

Mozilla reveals the Firefox OS for TV user interface

Mozilla reveals the Firefox OS for TV user interface

From web browser to phone and now to TVs, Mozilla Firefox has quickly outgrown its simple roots and is now aiming for the sky with the ultimate goal of a "Connected Home". But the size and location of a smart TV present a challenge when designing an interface that goes beyond a desktop window or a smartphone screen. For this purpose, Mozilla has stitched up an interface that is both new to Firefox users yet, at the same time, familiar to those who have already been using Smart TVs for some time.

LG G4 hands-on: Quantum physics, leather and a smarter camera

LG G4 hands-on: Quantum physics, leather and a smarter camera

There’s never been a tougher time to introduce a new smartphone, but LG thinks it has a hit on its hands with the new LG G4 for 2015. Building on last year’s G3 with a better camera, more high-quality materials, and a cleaner Android install, it may have a vaguely nonsensical tagline - “See the great. Feel the great” - but marketing hyperbole can usually be forgiven if the device lives up to expectations. I spent some time with the G4 to see why LG is talking Quantum Mechanics and movie theaters for its new flagship.

Netflix hit with industry backlash over new movie deals

Netflix hit with industry backlash over new movie deals

Netflix and Adam Sandler's Happy Madison Productions recently made a surprise announcement: that the video streaming service would partner in creating four new Sandler movies that will launch on Netflix exclusively. This immediately followed a similar announcement that Netflix will be making a second Crouching Tiger movie, launching it online at the same time as in IMAX theaters. Such moves were bound to happen and give consumers more control over their entertainment, but as expected, both have received substantial backlash from industry staples balking at the budding shift in how theatrical entertainment takes place.

SlashGear 101: Apple CarPlay

The closest you'll get to an iCar, and what Apple claims is the future for the dashboard, CarPlay represents Apple's play in the next big battle around mobility. Dubbed "the best iPhone experience on four wheels" and already gaining the support of some big names in automotive, Apple CarPlay bridges the iOS experience with the center console and promises both greater functionality and greater safety than the native infotainment systems you'd usually find while behind the wheel.
