SlashGear Morning Wrap-up 2/6/2014: iPhone 4, Outlast, Sony sells VAIO

This week we're seeing some rather odd headlines in the world of gadgets, technology, and the people who work in-between.

Sony VAIO Fit Multi-Flip ultrabooks hands-on

Sony teased a new form-factor laptop for IFA 2013, and the VAIO Fit is just that machine, a Windows 8 ultrabook that converts into a tablet in a way that actually manages to be unique despite all the convertibles we've seen before. In fact, it's a whole family of devices: offered in 13-, 14-, and 15-inch sizes, each VAIO Fit uses Sony's new Multi-Flip system, where the laptop screen tilts up, the rear panel folds, and the whole thing collapses down on itself into a tablet. We grabbed some playtime at the show; read on for our first impressions.
