  1. Once upon a time, the best way for you to back up the entirety of your computer’s data was to use the medium that was once the best way to listen to music: magnetic tape. Writable optical media, cheap hard drives, and cloud storage eventually became the consumer norm, but tape drives still hung around as one of the best options for mass data backup. Sony has developed a new technology that pushes tape drives far beyond where they once were, leading to individual tapes with 185 terabytes of storage capacity. Back in 2010, the standing record for how much data magnetic tape could store was 29.5G

    Sony Xperia Z3 benchmark leaks

    Today's leak however gives us a glimpse at the internals of the Sony D6603, or the Xperia Z3, as its common name goes. The GFXBench benchmark database has an entry showing not only the score the device achieved, but also the hardware used. The Xperia Z3 seems to have the same hardware as the Xperia Z2 - starting from the 5.1-inch 1080p screen, moving through the Snapdragon 801 chipset with 3GB RAM, down to the 20MP camera on the back. What remains to be seen is what possible feature would Sony use to differentiate its new flaghsip. Of course, we are yet to learn more about the new compact ph
  3. Sony’s flagships are getting a new exclusive feature – Live on YouTube app. It lets them live stream video on YouTube. So far Sony’s flagships had the unique Social Live feature, which let them livestream video to their Facebook walls, but this time it’s YouTube we are talking about. The exclusive app should be available for the Sony Xperia Z2, Xperia Z1 and Z1 Compact, though note that it’s not available in Germany and in countries where YouTube isn’t available. To use Live on YouTube you’ll need to turn on the live streaming feature for your account. Then you’ll be able to stream
  4. This week an anti-piracy company reportedly working for Sony has tried to put an end to all the World Cup fun. In a wild series of complaints to Google, dozens of legitimate companies including ESPN, EA Sports, The BBC, Business Insider, Symantec and even FIFA itself have been accused of infringing copyright. Soccer fever has been spreading across the globe this week, with dozens of millions tuning in to watch the World Cup via regular TV and an abundance of online services. While England basked in its somewhat traditional World Cup disappointment Thursday, viewing records were being broken
  5. The PlayStation Vita TV has been on sale in Japan and Asia since last year, but Sony will be bringing it to North America and Europe under the name PlayStation TV. The gadget has the PS Vita hardware inside and can play Vita, PlayStation Portable and PS One games using the bundled DualShock 3 controller. It can also stream a game running on a PlayStation 4 in a different room thanks to its Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity. The PlayStation TV will also support PlayStation Now as soon as the service is available in Europe. Now is a streaming service that lets you play PlayStation 3 gam
  6. Several months after the launch on the last generation consoles, Rockstar is releasing the game on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. As you can expect, the game now runs at a higher resolution, with improved detail, greater draw distance and denser traffic. Despite the thoroughly outdated hardware of the last gen console, Rockstar managed to make the game look good so you can image how good it would look on the current gen and PC. Actually, you don’t have to imagine. There is a video for you to watch after the break. This version of the game will include all the additional content t
  7. Sony unveiled "the slimmest 5.3-inch phone," the Xperia T3. It measures 7mm thick, not the thinnest ever but still impressive for a mid-ranger of this class. It shares a lot of similarities with the Xperia T2 Ultra, but is more compact. The Sony Xperia T3 has a Triluminos IPS display with 720p resolution. The screen has an average 277ppi pixel density and Bravia Engine 2. The frame is built following the traditional OmniBalance design with a metal frame that's exposed on the sides. The back is a matte plastic in one of three colors: white, black or purple. The new 5.3" smartphone runs Android
  8. The 2014 FIFA World Cup has an official smartphone, and it’s the Xperia Z2. This makes perfect sense, seeing as Sony is one of the World Cup’s biggest sponsors. Sony has produced a video highlighting their sponsorship while simultaneously pumping everyone up about the games. It seems that the cell phone manufacturer has taken a very nationalistic approach with the promo, highlighting the excitement of rooting for your country during the games. Sony is also attaching a prize to the promotion: the Sony Football Challenge. Participants must use the Xperia Lounge App to be a part of the
  9. Soundcloud caused controversy recently by letting Universal Records delete content and now it's becoming clear why. Soundcloud, Universal, Sony and Warner are said to be on the cusp of a deal, one in which the music hoster gives the labels royalties and up to 15% of its business in exchange for not getting sued. Anyone running a user-generated content site needs to seriously consider the implications of its users uploading infringing material, because it’s pretty much guaranteed to happen on a very large scale indeed. Once the world’s largest recording labels and movie studios see this happ
  10. Reportedly, the Xperia Z3 will sport a 5.15-inch display with 1,080 x 1,920 pixels - so it’s not going to be larger than the 5.2-inch 1080p screen of the Xperia Z2. The new smartphone should be powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.4GHz, helped by an Adreno 330 GPU and 3GB of RAM. There’s 16GB of memory inside, while the rear hosts a 20.7MP camera, and the front includes a 2.1MP camera. Android 4.4.4 KitKat should be on board. All in all, the Z3 doesn’t appear to be too different from the Z2, although it’s said that its body is a bit thinner (only 7mm). Rumor
  11. Whenever a new console hits the scene, it’s almost a given that teething issues and early bugs will arise. However, while both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One launched late last year without too much incident, the former seems to be suffering save-game errors with certain titles. Those encountering the "CE-34878-0" error will be somewhat pleased to learn that Sony has identified this coded error as being problematic, and is currently launching an investigation in order to find a solution. Gaming is more than just about playing a game in many instances. To some, it is simply a way of life, and w
  12. If you own or have access to a Sony Vaio Fit 11A then you need to stop using it immediately, and stop anyone else using it, too. Sony has shipped over 25,000 units of the Fit 11A to some 52 countries, but it is now warning owners that the hybrid laptop is in danger of catching fire. The reason, as usual, is the battery. The non-removable battery was supplied by a third-party (Panasonic) and luckily is limited to just the 11A model of the Vaio Fit range. It has been included in those models since launch in February of this year. The battery is susceptible to malfunctioning, overheating, and ult
  13. Sony announced a special version of the international Xperia Z1, called the Xperia Z1S for T-Mobile in US. While on the surface, the two phones seem nearly identical, except for minor differences such as 32GB of storage space instead of 16GB, turns out there is one more important change under the hood that you won't see on a spec sheet. According to various sources, the Xperia Z1S comes with a locked bootloader. While that itself is not a big deal, the bootloader on the Z1S cannot be unlocked. The international Z1, on the other hand, lets you unlock the bootloader in a few simple step

    Sony D6503 leaks

    XDA member iRimas come some photos and rumored specs of a mystery Sony smartphone. The device in question belongs to the family Xperia and has the model number D6503. According to the leakster it sports a 5.2" display, thinner bezels than the Xperia Z1 and runs on a fresh new UI atop Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. The device is apparently unstable and the UI is crashing all the time but we expect to see UI screenshots from said XDA user soon. The camera on the back is reportedly the same 20.7 MP 1/2.3" unit found on the Z1 and Z1 Compact. Other differences with the Xperia Z1 include three l
  15. Backward compatibility is a big deal in the gaming world, and when Sony announced its PS4 console, much of the talk was about the lack of any ability to play those back catalogues of games that everyone had spent the last few years accumulating. Sony has since sought to rectify that by announcing PlayStation Now, the game streaming service that will see PS3 games streamed over the Internet, but there is no local support being added to consoles. While this is all well and good for PS3 titles, what about those classic PS2 and PlayStation games that enthusiasts love so much? If the original Tomb
  16. Sony’s newest affordable Android smartphone, the Xperia E1, might be available in Europe as soon as March 10. That’s the date when Amazon UK expects to have the handset in stock. Until then, the retailer is taking pre-orders for the E1, asking $248 (£149.99 in British currency) for it. The handset is cheaper at Clove UK (£134.99), but there’s no estimated delivery date in this case. Amazon Germany is also listing the Xperia E1, saying that its singe SIM version costs $190 (€139), while the dual SIM model is a bit more expensive: $204 (€149). Measuring 118 x 62.4 x 12 mm, the Xperia E1 is
  17. Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin said on Twitter that the Nexus line of devices will be discontinued in 2015, replaced instead with a new brand spawned from the current Play Edition family. Google has launched various Play Edition devices this year, including the HTC One, the Samsung Galaxy S4, the LG G Pad 8.3, the Sony Z Ultra and the Motorola Moto G. Essentially these devices run a pure version of Android, with no OEM user interface and bloatware on top. However, these devices aren’t updated directly by Google, but by OEMs, meaning that new Android OS versions first reach Nexus devices, and o
  18. Next month, Sony will be releasing a new kind of USB flash drive that is designed to fit all your file transferring needs, literally. This 2-in-1 USB drive has connectors that fit both micro and regular USB ports. And it’s made to be Android-friendly to boot. There isn’t really a lack of portable file storage solutions, but the varying ports found on devices do make it more difficult to settle on a single one. A majority of smartphones and tablets have micro USB ports, but desktops and laptops mostly only have regular-sized USB slots. At the very least, some sort of cable, connector,
  19. Sony Xperia Z1f, the mini version of the flagship Sony Xperia Z1. The newly launched model is on the top of the country's smartphone sales charts, outselling the Apple iPhone 5s Sporting the same Snapdragon 800 chip and 20.7MP rear-facing camera as used on the Xperia Z1, the only differences between the two models is the smaller 4.3 inch screen, the lower 720 x 1280 resolution, and the reduced capacity battery. But the latter isn't a problem as tests have shown the Xperia Z1f outlasting its bigger brother. With the success of the model in Japan comes word that the international version of t
  20. Today, Sony submitted widget-like functionality for Firefox OS to be reviewed by the developer community that is Bugzilla. From there, it will be examined how to integrate the feature into the operating system. Called “Gadgets,” they will make it possible view app data just like widgets in Android devices. Interaction and adjusting the gadget is handled the same way too. Does this mean that Sony will be coming forth with a Firefox OS device of its own? Probably not in the near term, as Sony is “only doing a technical assessment of Firefox OS.” That technical evaluation is part of Sony’s
  21. The Sony Xperia Z2 was announced at the MWC yesterday and is up for pre-order right away. Here are some of the prices and timeframes we've collected from several sites. First off, the Xperia Z2 is available for pre-order from Sony Mobile's own site. All country-specific sites we tried promise a delivery in April, but prices vary quite a bit. In the UK, it's £600 (€730), but Clove UK lists it at £564 with the first stock expected in April. This website does have a note, saying the official price and availability are yet to be confirmed. In Germany, Sony's web store offers the Z2
  22. Xperia Z2 The Xperia Z2 is an absolute beast in terms of specs and features, let’s just hope that Sony can deliver it all as a premium package. On paper, it certainly looks like they shouldn’t have a problem doing that. In terms of major specs, you are looking at a 5.2-inch Full HD TRILUMINOS display (1080p), 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB RAM, 20.7 MP “Exmor RS for mobile” CMOS image sensor, 16GB of storage, microSD slot for more, 4G LTE (Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 13, 17, 20), and a 3,200mAh battery. The display is supposed to be their brightest and most vivid yet, the camera
  23. The next big thing in tech is to change the very nature of the way you experience reality, as Facebook's acquisition of Oculus VR suggests. Does the dystopia start here? Science fiction has always presaged the advent of actual technology, and taught us how to think about it before it comes. A century before the Apollo Space Program, Jules Verne had flown a rocketship to the moon; 40 years before the iPad, Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey imagined touch-screen tablets in every bag and briefcase. Now, the next big war in tech is coming, and it has once again been predicted by science
  24. Sony announced its latest flagship tablet, the Xperia Z2 at this year’s Mobile World Congress. Back at its press conference, Sony did mention that the device would hit the shelves in March, but there was no official word on how much it would cost. Well, the pricing details are no longer a mystery as the Xperia Z2 Tablet has gone on sale in the United Kingdom. For now, the slate is available only on Sony’s online store, but the slate is expected to hit the brick and motor stores in the coming days. The 16GB Wi-Fi variant of the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is priced at £399, while the 32GB
  25. According to analysts at Gartner, smartphones sales have exceeded featurephone sales for the first time in 2013. Smartphones accounted for 53.6% of sales in 2013, but in the fourth quarter alone they had a 57.6% share, showing their numbers are still growing. Samsung remains the biggest smartphone vendor and even managed to gain some more market share in 2013, though the final quarter of a year marked a small decline for the company. The Gartner analysts believe Samsung needs to push its technology leadership in the high-end and better bang for the buck in the mid-range to maintain its leading
