You can VR right now with your smartphone and $25. It's fun and it's worth the cash. Here's how to get started...

Sony's PlayStation Vue live TV streaming service will cost $50 to $70 a month. Apple is working on a live TV streaming service that is expected to cost $25 to $35 a month. Both of these are about as much as cable/satellite bills are now. Just because we're moving from cable boxes to web streaming doesn't mean we'll being paying any less. From the way things are shaking out so far, I get the feeling that this'll all end up costing us the same if not more than what we all pay now for the cable/satellite services we're almost all unhappy with. As the saying goes: "New boss, same as the old boss."
Sony said its streaming television service is available starting today for consumers in New York, Chicago and Philadelphia, starting at $49.99.

Do consumers need another streaming service.  Sony I thing your too late to the game.   So many other options and so little entertainment money.

Bloatware, junkware, crapware--whatever you call it, it sucks. It's no good. At the very least it's annoying, at the worst, it's a significant security risk, as some say Superfish is...

I've tried pretty much all the VR headsets out there and the two I used this week, Sony's Project Morpheus and HTC Vive, have wowed me the most so far. It's got a ways to go, but face computing just keeps getting better...
I strapped on two new VR headset prototypes at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco this week: the Vive from HTC and Valve, and Project Morpheus from Sony. Virtual reality has never before been so...real.

This is nuts. For the last three months, hackers have been rumbling around the State Department's email network -- and the government hasn't been able to get them out despite trying that entire time.
Three months after the State Department confirmed hackers breached its unclassified email system, the government still hasn’t been able to evict them from the network, say three people familiar with the investigation.

Google Now is no longer just about predictive search results (which it's been pretty awesome at for a couple years now). Starting today, Google Now will begin nudging users (Android first, with their permission) to spend money with other apps on their phone such as Airbnb, eBay, and Lyft.
Google Inc. doesn’t want to lose its perch atop the search market, and it’s looking to the likes of Ford Motor Co., Airbnb Inc., eBay Inc. and a couple dozen other companies to help it do just that.
