sony xperia z3v hands on 3 640x426As some of you guys might have heard, Sony isn’t exactly doing too well in the mobile market at the moment. While the company makes some pretty decent phones with exceptional cameras, it seems that for whatever reason customers are not taking to them. Now according to a report from last month, it was rumored that Sony could be looking to release one new flagship phone a year as opposed to two.

In a more recent report from Reuters, it has now been revealed that Sony is also expected to trim their smartphone and TV lineup over the coming years. This means that if you were looking forward to more Sony smartphones and TVs from which you can choose from, you’d be out of luck. It seems that Sony has decided that instead of focusing on market share or market size, they’re choosing to focus on profits instead.

xiaomi mi 4 640x426Update – A new report from Focus Taiwan has debunked the rumors. “Xiaomi said in a statement on its Sina Weibo microblog that the report published earlier in the day on web portal Sina is “significantly false” and that the 4G version of its MediaTek-based Redmi 1S phone is selling well in China.” So it looks like all’s well between Xiaomi and MediaTek!

China-based smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi is making waves. Despite the company’s products still largely unavailable in western countries, the company has managed to climb the ranks and has landed the number three spot as the world’s largest smartphone manufacturer. Xiaomi’s CEO also recently announced their goal of surpassing the likes of Apple and Samsung to claim the number one position.

That being said, could Xiaomi’s plans be in jeopardy of being derailed? Well according to a recent report, it seems that MediaTek might no longer be working with Xiaomi.

While one can’t really classify smartwatches as tech for adults, we don’t really see why kids would need a smartwatch, but if you think that it’s not a bad idea to give your child a smartwatch then the Jumpy smartwatch Kickstarter project is something you’ll want to take a look at. Put together by Taipei-based startup JoyRay, Jumpy is an open-platform smartwatch designed for kids in mind.

The watch is aimed at children aged 5 to 8 and will be compatible with both iOS and Android devices. It will feature a bunch of features such as a gyroscope, gesture and voice recognition, Bluetooth connectivity, and a detachable head and will also come in bright and fun colors. The reason for the detachable head is so that bands can be easily swapped. Read full post →Jumpy Is A Smartwatch Designed For Kids

samsung milkEarlier this year Samsung introduced their own music service called Milk. It was an odd choice for a name, but we guess it does stand out from the rest. However as it turns out, it looks like there is at least one company that isn’t too pleased with Samsung’s choice for a name and is now suing the South Korean tech giant over alleged trademark infringement.

The company suing Samsung is Milk Studios, a photography and media company based in the US. The lawsuit claims that Samsung had intentionally, willfully, and knowingly used the Milk name for its music service despite the company being made aware of potential conflicts. As Milk Studios has been around for more than 15 years, we can certainly see how they could possibly claim the name as their own.

Installing a security camera in your home is a great idea if you want to ensure that you know what exactly goes on in your house at all times. However we can understand that while sometimes the added security is welcome, the idea of being watched in your own home can be a little disconcerting.

Well that’s where Point comes in. Point is an alarm system that works not by watching, but by listening and sensing the air. For example if a window was broken in your home, a security camera would probably just catch the video and not the audio, and unless you are watching the feed all the time, you probably wouldn’t know until it’s too late.
