Apple, Google‘s phones and Samsung have long ruled the roost when it comes to slow-motion video, offering smooth 240fps support. Sure, we’ve seen the likes of Lenovo claim 960fps as a standard, but this was via ineffective software trickery.

Now, Sony has laid the foundation down for super slow-motion, announcing a new smartphone sensor capable of shooting at 1000fps.

Sony Corp announced that its virtual reality headset for PlayStation will launch globally in October for US$399 (RM1,655), a move that undercuts its biggest competitor by hundreds of dollars.

Andrew House, head of Sony’s gaming division, made the announcement during a press event at the Video Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, where virtual reality gaming counterpart Oculus Rift announced its headset a day earlier.

Whether viewed as a bright idea or simply a gimmicky gadget, there is no denying that Sony has tried to think of everything with its latest smart home product.

The Sony Multifunctional Light is set to go on sale in Japan later this year and when it does it will be the smartest smart light available.

Sony says the recent breach of its servers and weeklong cyber humiliation is an “unprecedented” strike and an “unparalleled crime.” If they’re shocked by these events, they’ve been shocked for almost a year: leaked emails obtained by Gawker show security troubles dating back to February.

The email boxes of two top Sony executives were leaked online on Monday, the latest release of potentially embarrassing corporate information following a major hack on the company’s computer networks two weeks ago.

The files were uploaded to file-sharing sites and the Bit Torrent file-sharing network, and links to them were posted in a message that claimed to be from the same hacking group behind the Sony attack.

“We have already given our clear demand to the management team of Sony, however, they have refused to accept,” said the message pointing to the files. “We are sending you our warning again.”

The Xperia Z3v is an excellentsmartphone, but Sony had to ditch an already-refreshed design to deliver a unique device on Verizon. The resulting phone looks more like the older Z2, while adding features like Qi wireless charging and unfortunate bloatware to curry favor with Verizon.

Sony has launched its latest flagship, the Xperia Z3 smartphone at a steep Rs 51,990 price tag in India. Alongside the flagship, the company has also revealed its younger sibling Xperia Z3 Compact priced at Rs 44,990. Both water-resistant and with similar capabilities, the Z3 has a 5.2-inch display, while the Z3 Compact has a smaller 4.6-inch display.

The Sony Xperia Z3 runs on the same quad-core 2.5GHz MSM8974AC Snapdragon 801 chip that is featured in the HTC One M8, LG G3 and the Galaxy S5. The powerful SoC with 3GB of RAM and Adreno 330 graphics means Android 4.4 KitKat should have no issues running on the Z3 even with Sony’s customisations. The display though is not a late 2014 flagship-like 2K panel, but instead Sony has opted for a 5.2inch 1080 p display with the Triluminos and X-Reality mobile engine for enhancing colours and image quality.

Sony is clearly hoping to make a splash with its latest handset, the Xperia M2 Aqua.

It is not only the world’s first affordable water-resistant handset, it is also the first phone ever to achieve an IP65 rating.

That means it can survive being submerged in 1.5 meters of water for up to 30 minutes.Until now, water-resistance was a feature reserved for flagship handsets.

Therefore it’s little wonder that Sony is hailing the handset as a milestone product.“It is a smartphone that lets customers take the best of Sony technology and entertainment with them wherever they go — come rain or shine — and we are excited to bring it to market,” said Xperia marketing director at Sony Music, Calum MacDougall.

Hi Lifehacker, I recently put a crack in the screen in my Sony Xperia Z tablet rendering a third of the screen unusable. According to Sony this would cost $450 to repair, nearly the value of the tablet itself. I could not find anywhere in Melbourne that would repair a Sony tablet but I was able to keep using it, albeit with much reduced functionality. However, a recent software update has made the tablet completely unusable as I cannot get past the language selection screen (as pictured).

I would like to know what to do with my rather expensive but useless tablet. Is there a way to repair it that I have not found or should I sell it? Is there anything at all I can do with it? Thanks, Bad Medicine

Dear BM,

From your brief explanation, the problem seems to be the placement of the “Done” icon which happens to coincide with the non-responsive portion of the screen. If this is indeed the case, the solution is so simple you’re going to kick yourself.

Like most Android tablets, the Sony Xperia Z comes with a Micro USB 2.0 port — simply buy a USB OTG cable and plug in your mouse. You should now be able to click on the damaged section of the screen with your cursor.
