Assist is one of the many clever features Motorola included with the Moto X. This service monitors conditions and triggers changes to your settings and preferences as needed. It's not as powerful as some third-party options, but it's build in at the system level. Today's update includes a few improvements, as well as the customary bug fixes.
We've seen a leaked shot of the Xperia Z2 bearing Verizon's markings, and now it's the Xperia Z2 Tablet's turn. @evleaks has shared an image depicting the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet with the carrier's branding centrally located square on its back. You know it's Verizon's because its logo is larger than the manufacturer's.
At 6.4mm, the Xperia Z2 Tablet is very thin, and at 425 grams, it's very light. The device comes with a 10-inch 1920 by 1080 display, a Snapdragon 801 processor, and 3GB of RAM.
Agent 47 is back, but this time he's a bit less animated. In fact, he and all the guards he's going to strangle are game pieces in the new Hitman Go from Square Enix. This is a strategy game that aims to keep all the core strategic elements of the Hitman games while making it more playable on a mobile device.
You couldn't swing a dead cat at Mobile World Congress back in February without hitting a smartwatch or a fitness band. (Not that you would want to. Barcelona probably has some kind of municipal ordinance against dead feline hurling.) After teasing us with the companion app, Sony has finally released the Smartband SWR10 in the US. This screenless Bluetooth activity tracker will cost you a C-note on Sony's online store, and it should be showing up at other retailers soon.
Today's update to Google Translate probably won't affect most of our American readers, but if you live in or frequently travel to India, you're going to get a lot of use out of it. The update to version 3.0.6 adds spoken translation support for Hindi, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, Marathi, Punjabi, Tamil, and Telugu, all widely spoken in different parts of the Indian subcontinent and other locations in Southeast Asia.
Many in the western hemisphere think that Hindi is the official language of India, and it is (along with English).
Ask anybody that spends time in the security circles and they'll tell you that every large software project is bound to have a few long-standing vulnerabilities in the code. Fortunately, there are usually a few people who are paid to close up those holes so you, the customer, don't find yourself the victim of nefarious evildoers someday. Like so many before it, the latest update to Android came with a boatload of changes, at least one of which fixes a potentially dangerous vulnerability that can be used for numerous attacks, including a way to acquire root.
RoboForm is a popular password manager and form-filling service on the desktop, but its Android edition has felt a little behind the times as of late. That changes with the 4.05 update, which adds the ability to fill in tedious form info on any app on your phone or tablet. It's especially useful since the (paid) RoboForm Everywhere feature will sync all your information with the extension on your computer. No more hastily trying to remember the password for the HBO Go account you "borrowed."
Previously, RoboForm needed its own rather clunky browser to fill in all the relevant information, which is obviously not an ideal solution.
