    What to expect from Sony’s PlayStation event

    Sony is having a PlayStation event tomorrow in New York, where it plans to provide an update on its PlayStation business and PS4. Most people agree that means it’s going to show us a couple of PlayStation hardware updates, including a previously announced more powerful PlayStation 4 (supposedly codenamed “Neo”) with support for 4K and more robust virtual reality, and a… Read More

  • As long as robots look adorable and make us coffee, we’ll be eating out of their robotic hands

    As long as robots look adorable and make us coffee, we’ll be eating out of their robotic hands

    It doesn’t take much. For all the bluster around the conversation about Skynet and robotic overlords, we still melt when a diminutive robot flashes the slightest hint of humanity through a small set of blinking eyes — and then does something nice for us. Sony’s Xperia Agent robotic assistant captured the tech world’s attention when it debuted at MWC in Barcelona back… Read More

    You probably don’t need a $3,200 gold-plated Walkman

    I mean, yeah, it sounds good. It’s a $3,200 Walkman. It had better sound good. And hey, it sounds even better when paired with a $2,300 pair of Sony headphones (MDR-Z1R) and that new $2,200 Sony headphone app (NW-WM1Z). That’s a grand total of $7,700 for me to listen to a really crisp cello cover of “Every Breath You Take.” Is it worth it? That’s not for me to… Read More

    Sony intros two camera-focused additions to its Xperia X line

    Sony knows from phone cameras. After all, it’s the company’s components that fuel the competition’s hardware. As such, it makes sense that it’s opted to focus on the feature for a pair of new additions to its Xperia X line, the flagship 5.2-inch XZ and 4.2-inch Compact. The company has moved to what it’s called triple image sensing technology, built around… Read More

  • Sony takes on Bose with new wireless headphones

    Sony takes on Bose with new wireless headphones

    Not every product briefing involves a large hidden speaker trucked in to reproduce plane noise. But Sony is clearly very psyched about the noise canceling capabilities of its new wireless headset. In fact, the reps who did the presentation even went so far as activating the white noise hum while I was listening to music, in order to effect surprise when I took them off. Fair play. And indeed… Read More
