    Meet The Sony QX10 And QX100, Smart Lenses That Turn Phones Into True Cameras

    Smartphones have cameras. But they’re mostly garbage when compared to a dedicated camera. Besides the Lumia 1020, of course. The cameras on smartphones have tiny image capture sensors and low-quality glass, the sum of which equals pictures that are just good enough — not impressive. It’s convenience over quality.

    Sony Hopes Sex Sells Smartphones

    Remember that time Sony hired pretty ladies to swim erotically with its new smartphone? It’s apparently happening at IFA. And while I admit I’m advancing their cause by posting this, it’s worth noting that you, the viewer, will likely not forget that Sony smartphones are waterproof. That is, of course, if you even notice the smartphones in the video. Read More

    Sony’s Crazy Plan To Improve Mobile Photos Involves Making Attachable Cameras For Phones

    While Samsung and Nokia (and everyone else really) are locked in a sort of mobile photography war by baking elaborate cameras into new smartphones, Sony is apparently testing a slightly different approach. Rather than cramming a high-end camera into a phone, the folks at SonyAlphaRumors have happened upon a set of photos that depict a pair of Sony “lens cameras” that latch onto… Read More

    What Games Are: The Ludophile Mindset

    Like the audiophile who spends serious money on her music, the ludophile spends aplenty on games and consoles. Both want perfection. The question for the games industry, however, is whether perfection is really the goal any more. To chase that market is very expensive, and although gamers may not like to hear it, good-enough seems like a better goal industry-wise in the long run. Read More

    How Sony’s SmartWatch 2 Stacks Up To The Pebble And The MetaWatch Strata

    Sony’s first go at the smartwatch mostly went unnoticed – a lot of people, myself included, had to be reminded of its existence when the Pebble made big waves for its huge Kickstarter funding success. But Sony’s not letting its early mover advantage go to waste, nor is it letting the SmartWatch brand die on the vine: Today it unveiled the SmartWatch 2, a successor to its… Read More

A slew of tweets hash-tagged #itstime started appearing on the official SonyXperia account the other day, and they hinted heavily that the company is preparing to show off yet another smartwatch at the Mobile… Read More

    What Games Are: E3 Was Wild, But AAA Games Are Still A Mess

    E3 was wild and loud, and Sony seemed to rise while Microsoft fell low. Yet it doesn’t really change anything as regards the long-term future of big budget consoe games. With costs continuing to escalate and the break-even point passing 5,6 or 10 million copies, the next generation will be the last for some. Read More

    Sony Turns Its Lackluster SmartWatch Into A Developer Playground

    Back during the heady days of 2012, before the Pebble raised a crazy amount of money on Kickstarter, Sony quietly released an Android-compatible smartwatch of its own. By most accounts it wasn’t very good, but that doesn’t mean that Sony has relegated it to the trash pile. No, with hindsight being what it is, Sony is looking to breathe some new life into that curious little gadget… Read More
