You'll also be glad to know that the Sony Xperia Z3 will be launching in the United States with T-Mobile USA. Generally it's weeks or even months before the USA gets the Xperia line of phones the rest of the world enjoys right from the get-go.

There's also a feature today on PlayStation 4 Remote Play. This is a system in which your smartphone or tablet from Sony plays games with your PlayStation 4 while your TV is turned off. You'll use a DualShock 4 controller to make it all happen.
