Sony confirms official PS4 Remote Play app for Windows and Mac — Well that was quick. It's only been a couple of days since someone came up with an unofficial app to stream PlayStation 4 gaming to PC, but earlier today, Sony's awesome Shuhei Yoshida confirmed on Twitter that his company is "indeed working on an official [Remote Play] application for PC/Mac."

Huawei still thinks 6-inch phablets is the way to go — It's been well over a year since Huawei launched its Mate 7 phablet, and as of August, over five million units have been sold worldwide. That's far more impressive than the original goal of just one million phones.

Air Button adds handy shortcuts to NFC-enabled phones — The idea of customizable add-on buttons for smartphones isn't exactly new. First we had Pressy (which was quickly cloned by Xiaomi and others), then the Dimple NFC button pad came along. So what's next? Well, a Hong Kong startup thinks Dimple has space for improvement, which leads us to the Air Button.

Pepsi Phone comes out of the blue in China — We don't exactly know why, but China seems to have a thing for the Pepsi brand. Following the Pepsi edition Oppo N1, another company from the Far East is launching a new device that's simply dubbed the Pepsi Phone.

Chinese-owned Vertu vows to keep making luxury phones in the UK — It's been a little over a week since Vertu announced that it is now under full ownership of Hong Kong's Godin Holdings. Which, as we found out, is linked to Godin Cyberspace Security Technology -- aka GodinSec from mainland China.

China smashes sales records during its version of Black Friday — In the US there's Black Friday, but in China, they get all their big online shopping discounts on November 11th aka " Singles Day" instead. As of 4:28am ET today, Alibaba's Tmall, the Chinese equivalent of Amazon, has already made over $11 billion which broke last year's record of $8.97 billion.

How did I miss Single’s Day? Did they hand out free condoms and pints of ice cream?…

We turned on the Nintendo PlayStation: It's real and it works — When a mysterious " Nintendo PlayStation" prototype with both an SNES cartridge slot and a CD drive made the rounds back in July, many remained skeptical. Not even Sony PlayStation's head of Worldwide Studios, Shuhei Yoshida, wanted to confirm its authenticity.

Huawei's next chipset may give competitors a run for their money — Huawei just became Europe's second largest Android brand, but there's just no time for celebration. Not too long after launching the Huawei Mate S and the Nexus 6P, the Chinese telecom giant is already teasing the launch of the Mate 8 on November 26.

Vertu's mysterious Chinese buyer has its own secure smartphone OS — In recent years, we've watched Vertu evolve to a luxury phone maker that actually cares about specs, and you can thank CEO Massimiliano "Max" Pogliani for that. But according to Financial Times , Swedish private equity group EQT has recently sold Vertu to Hong Kong's Godin Holdings, and Pogliani has since decided "to pass on the baton" to someone else.

DJI Osmo review: A hand-held stabilized camera worthy of its price — Thanks to the rise of small action cameras, camera stabilizers (aka gimbals) are becoming more portable than ever. Amazon has plenty of these coming from random Chinese brands, but most are either poorly designed, or only a partial solution to your problem. For instance, they often lack a handset mount for those who need a live screen.

@vladsavov "Story" in the sense that people don't realize HTC used that kind of antenna tech first. @ericlin

@ericlin @vladsavov I should add that my sister didn't enjoy her Z3 Compact, complained about lagginess and battery life.

Nov 29, 2015

@ericlin HTC A9 is almost an exception, but the iPhone resemblance (not everyone knows the full story) and pricing will still deter some.

Nov 29, 2015

@ericlin The "compact" part of the name is a marketing issue. Besides, people who buy Android want everything pushed to the max.

Nov 29, 2015

@ericlin You say that but the iPhone 6s and 6 are "small" as well but are still popular.
