Xperia Z3 Compact inferiorWhile Sony has some pretty decent high-end smartphones, like the recently announced Sony Xperia Z3, the company also has some low-mid range smartphones in its stable as well. Unfortunately it seems that those devices aren’t doing particularly well which is why Sony has recently announced that they will be revising their finances.

The company has recently quadrupled their forecast of the amount of money they expect to lose in the financial year, and it seems that the loss is largely attributed to the company’s low-mid range Xperia handsets that aren’t selling as well as Sony had initially hoped. Sony’s revised financials now state that its net loss will be about 230 billion yen, a leap from its previous forecast of 50 billion yen.

swypeIf you’re looking forward to the release of iOS 8 primarily because you can’t wait to install third-party keyboards on your iOS device, you might be pleased to learn that Swype will also be launching alongside iOS 8 on the 17th of September, which is later today. Unfortunately the app will not be free and if you want to install it, you’ll have to pay a price of $0.99 for it, which we guess isn’t too bad to begin with.

For those who are unfamiliar with Swype, the keyboard gained notoriety on the Android platform because of the way it allowed users to type. Instead of pressing individual keys, users could swipe over the keyboard to form words. In some cases it has proven to be faster than a regular keyboard, although it does take some getting used to.

10504 2759 140916 iCloud 2 Step l 640x357Yesterday we reported that Apple had enabled two-step authentication when logging into iCloud from the web. If users had chosen to enable it, all they’d be able to access is the Find My iPhone feature as the other features will be locked until you enter a generated passcode that will be sent to your trusted device.

Sounds good, right? Well if you were hoping that the security would make its way to other apps that might rely on iCloud, you’re in luck because according to a supporting document (via MacRumors), third-party apps that do not have their own two-step authentication and that can potentially store data in iCloud will soon offer two-step authentication as well, courtesy of Apple.
