Sony to exit the PC business: What's it mean for the Mac?

Sony announced Thursday that it will sell off its VAIO computer business to a Japanese investment fund. Sony cited "the drastic changes in the global PC industry" as one reason for its decision.

Steve Jobs wanted you to have a Sony VAIO running OS X

OS X has always been a Mac only product – despite the Hackintosh scene – but it now comes to light that at one point in its life that might have changed. With Sony the beneficiary. In a tale of VAIO, Golf and Steve Jobs, Apple's former CEO was apparently keen to expand OS X to Sony's laptop brand. From Nobi:

Sony QX-series camera update inbound with ISO improvements and 1080p video

Sony's QX-series 'lens cameras' – one of which features in my own 2013 favorite tech guide – are set to get a little better in the near future, with the announcement of a firmware update for the QX10 and QX100. In January, both cameras will get 1080p video recording capabilities, as well as expanded ISO range up to 3200 for the QX10 and 12800 on the QX100.

Sony proves you can't half-ass a set-top box with the PS Vita TV

A little while ago, Sony announced it's own low priced set-top box, the PS Vita TV, launching initially in Japan.

Sony Cyber-shot QX10 review

In Berlin, back in early September, Sony gathered members of the press together to introduce its fall range of products. Along side TVs, cameras and Android phones was the Cyber-shot QX10 and QX100. These 'lens cameras' are a unique product, in so much that there is a whole compact camera housed within something which looks just like a lens.

We've had a QX10 for a couple of weeks now, so is Sony onto a winner, or does it solve a problem that no-one really has? Let's find out.
