They will no longer offer any maintenance, so users may have to turn to online support forums for new ways to keep their Aibo robot dogs in service.

Sony has $160 microSD card coming for ‘Premium Sound’ lovers

It’s all about sound. And noise. Well, to Sony it is, at least. In a bit of a head-scratcher, Sony is releasing a new microSD card, called the microSDXC. This 64GB card is labelled as being “for Premium Sound”, to which Sony hopes audiophiles everywhere will buy it. At $160, it’s a lot pricier than similarly specced microSD cards. That massive price boost (like five-times as much) is explained away, where Sony explains it has “less electrical noise when reading data”.

Non-attachable Sony SmartEyeglass Dev Edition coming in March

It seems that Sony is kicking its smart eyewear plans into high gear. Just after releasing a video that details the idea behind its SmartEyeglass Attach! single-lens display module, it is now announcing the upcoming availability of its binocular display sibling, the original, non-attachable Sony SmartEyeglass. This, however, and hopefully, isn't the final version of the device, but even as a first developer edition, it is already more affordable and more available than that other popular smart spectacle, Google Glass.

Sony’s Xperia E4 available for UK pre-orders

Sony’s Xperia E4 available for UK pre-orders

When it was announced, Sony’s Xperia E4 wasn’t quite what we were expecting from Sony. After announcing they’d be dedicating themselves to flagship offerings, a decidedly mid-range phone was a shock to the system. Still, the E4 will find favor with many smartphone users, and the low price point might have Sony’s latest in more hands than their flagship Xperia devices. With big promises like two-day battery life and a pretty respectable spec sheet, UK fans can now pre-order an Xperia E4 via Clove.
