Sony invests in self-driving automaker ZMP

Tech companies are flocking to the self-driving car market with some making significant investments into other firms that are helping to develop technology. Intel for instance is working on tech that will benefit self-driving cars. The big rumor the last week or so has been that Apple is set to enter into the self-driving car market. On the heels of that rumor comes confirmation that Sony is stepping into the market.

Non-attachable Sony SmartEyeglass Dev Edition coming in March

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.

Sony video demos SmartEyeglass Attach! concept

Google may be a bit ambiguous about Google Glass' future, but Sony seems unfazed. Either it has a very strong faith in the still non-existent smart eyewear market or it thinks it can take advantage of Google's failure there. Either way, it is pushing ahead with own attempt but also tries to approach the problem from a slightly different angle. SmartEyeglass Attach!, which is not to be confused with its other, odder attempt, may succeed in one area where Glass failed: flexibility.

VAIO makes a comeback with new VAIO Z, VAIO Z Canvas hybrids

Sony may have given up the fight, but VAIO, now a company in its own right, is still fighting the good fight. In fact, the now Japanese-owned PC maker has just unveiled two new members of its family, one of which could take on the Microsoft Surface Pro 3. One reuses the VAIO Z name, but with a completely different design, while the other calls itself the VAIO Z Canvas. What both have in common, aside from some specs, is that they are both convertibles.

Turned 18? Now you can turn your PSN sub account into a master

Turned 18? Now you can turn your PSN sub account into a master

Even gamers grow older. There comes a time when a young gamer reaches a certain legal number of years where he or she can get access to content previously unavailable to them, legally or otherwise. When that coming of age does arrive, Sony will now let them easily gradate from a PSN Sub Account to a Master Account as easily as flicking a switch. Sony says this is a much requested feature and, considering that a lot of gamers probably turn 18 every year, it's somewhat puzzling it took them this long to implement it.

Sony Xperia E4 promises 2-day battery life at budget price

Sony Xperia E4 promises 2-day battery life at budget price

Barely half a year has passed since Sony announced the Xperia E3 at IFA 2014. Now it is augmenting its budget smartphone line with the new Xperia E4. Like its predecessor, it promises to give as much of the Sony Xperia experience that it can at price point. This includes a 2,300 mAh battery promised to last 2 days, the distinct Xperia design, as well as customization options. One rather peculiar thing about the Xperia E4 is that Sony has opted to go with a MediaTek CPU this time around.

Sony, Marvel agree to bring Spidey to Marvel film universe

Now, this sort of deal might sound strange at first. Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios have inked a deal that will let the webslinger, well, sling between multiple films created by the two rival studios. This means that, aside from whatever Amazing Spider-Man film Sony Pictures has planned, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man will soon be making an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) as well, first by himself and, perhaps, with others. There is even a possibility of MCU characters coming into Sony Picture's films.

Sony’s impressive earnings still sour for mobile division

Sony’s impressive earnings still sour for mobile division

Sony’s latest earnings report wasn’t bad news, as you might have expected. In fact, it was their best earnings announcement in quite some time, even with the crippling hack, which cost them $15 million. Across the board, Sony was up, and shipped more Xperia smartphones than they ever have, and moved a lot of PlayStation 4s. Sony also experienced growth in sales of sensors. Still, Sony is primed to lay off several thousand by the end the financial year, which closes in March.
