Most of you may be under the impression that Google's Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL will be the first phones out with Android 8.0 Oreo. But it's not those two, or even the LG V30, that can claim that honor; it's actually Sony's Xperia XZ1.

Android TV app for Comcast Xfinity coming in 2018, but only for Sony TVs at first

Thursday, November 16th, 2017

Over a year ago, Comcast revealed that it was working on an Xfinity app for Android TV. It was part of the 'Xfinity TV Partner Program,' designed to make its television service available on smart TVs and internet-connected streaming boxes. That way, you wouldn't have to lease a cable box (unless you didn't want TV congesting your home internet network) - just install the app and start watching content.

It has taken a while, but Comcast is finally getting ready to release the app.

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

I think my favorite part of the holiday season is all of the sales that you can find on various items. Among those, phones are commonplace. It's a great time to pick up yesteryear's goodies at very low prices. This Deal Alert is just that: B&H has the black Sony Xperia XZ (F8331) for $304.99, saving you $70.

It's no secret that Sony's phones usually push the envelope on what one might consider a reasonable price, but the company's devices almost always dip lower after a few months.

Sony updates PlayStation app with brand new interface [APK Download]

Sunday, November 12th, 2017

Sony has offered a PlayStation app for Android since 2012, allowing console owners to manage their friends list and view achievements on the go. While the mobile app did closely mirror the PlayStation's interface, it didn't fit in well with the rest of Android (or iOS). An update for the PlayStation app is now available, with a brand new UI.

[Deal Alert] Sony’s Extra Bass XB950B1 and XB950N1 wireless headphones are 50% off

Friday, November 10th, 2017

Sony has released a lot of over-ear headphones in the past year, but who are we to judge its product management division? Especially when it benefits us greatly in that relatively new products get really nice discounts because a slightly newer version is on the market. That's the case with the XB950B1 and XB950N1 headphones. Only announced in January at CES, these two headphones geared toward the bass-loving crowd can be controlled with the Headphones Connect app to choose different listening modes, have Bluetooth, NFC, and a 3.5mm input in case the battery dies.

[Deal Alert] Get an Xperia XZ1 Compact for just $504.99 ($95 off) from Amazon

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017

Today, virtually the smallest mainstream Android flagship on the market is the 5.0" Pixel 2. That's a nice phone, but it's pricey and might still be too big for your liking. It's a good thing that the Xperia XZ1 Compact exists, then, and it's even better that it's currently discounted on Amazon to just $504.99. That's nearly $100 off on a still-new phone.

The XZ1 Compact comes with all of the XZ1's great specs, but in a smaller package.

Any Sony Android TV model from 2017, along with some from 2016 (XBR-Z9D, XBR-X800D, XBR-X750/X700D), will be able to make use of the Assistant, which can be summoned by pressing the microphone button on the remote control.

After 12-year hiatus, Sony announces return of aibo robot pet

Wednesday, November 1st, 2017

After a nearly 12-year absence, Sony announced the return of the aibo robot pet. The new model of aibo, ERS-1000, uses an unspecified 64-bit quad core CPU, in addition to a variety of custom-developed actuators and sensors allowing aibo to move freely and interact with humans and the environment. The aibo can move its body along 22 axes, and can provide visual cues with OLED-display eyes. Four microphones and a speaker facilitate audio input and output, and two fisheye cameras with simultaneous location and mapping (SLAM) capabilities allow it to detect objects, in much the same way self-driving car technology works.
