Sony Expands Folding@Home Compatibility To Lollipop And Non-Xperia Devices, Though It's Still Incompatible With Many

Sony's Folding@Home app turns your Android device into a weapon in the war against diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's by contributing your spare computing power to research. It entered the Play Store in early January as a beta exclusively available to certain Xperia phones. Now Sony is expanding the experience to other hardware, including devices running Android Lollipop.

Here you can see Folding@Home running on my HTC One M7, a non-Sony device with the latest version of Android.

While it's nice to see Folding@Home opened up, the app is still incompatible with tablets and slightly older devices such as the Nexus 4, the Galaxy Nexus, and the Galaxy Note II (the Nexus 5 and the Note 3 are supported though).

Verizon Xperia Z2 Tablet Gets An OTA Update With PS4 Remote Play Support And A Few Other Tweaks

I don't know how many tablets Verizon typically sells, especially if you limit that to non-iPads. But however many of you picked up the admittedly neat Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet from Big Red, check your status bar for an update alert. Today's software update adds something even neater: the ability to remotely play games on your PlayStation 4 over your home Wi-Fi network. You'll need the official Remote Play app and a Dual Shock 4 controller to take advantage of it.

Sony Adds LTE To The Xperia E4, Calls It The Xperia E4g

Sony announced the budget-oriented Xperia E4 just a few weeks ago, and there's already a new variant of the device. The Xperia E4g has the "g" at the end because it has more Gs in its cellular radio. Yes, this version has 4G LTE instead of just 3G. There are a few other differences as well.

Sony is apparently really serious about creating its own Google Glass competitor. You'd think Google's inability to talk everyone into wearing a computer on their faces would give Sony pause, but here we are with the official Sony SmartEyeglass app in the Play Store.

Sony Announces The Low-End Xperia E4 With A MediaTek Processor And A Dual-SIM Variant, Leaves Out The Price

Sony's smartphones and tablets have had a nearly universal aesthetic over the last few years, focusing on hard angles and monochromatic designs. It's a good look, but the company seems to be shaking things up a bit with the low-end Xperia E4. This budget device translates Sony's industrial design into a softer, curvier plastic body. The white version is two-toned, Nexus-style, with a white housing and black screen bezel. Other touches, like the middle-mounted power button, are more familiar.

The phone uses a five-inch screen and a qHD LCD panel - that's a little q, 960x540, not the other QHD.

PlayStation Portable Emulator PPSSPP Version 1.0 Now Available On The Play Store

There's a huge emulator community on Android, helped in no small part by the fact that modern smartphones can handle older game console software without breaking a sweat. But 3D consoles and newer portable machines are harder to emulate - they require more power and more complex software to get bigger, more demanding games to run well. The PPSSPP emulator (for PlayStation Portable games) has been in development for a variety of platforms for several years, but now the 1.0 release is available for Android via an easy Play Store download.

PPSSPP has just about all of the standard emulator bases covered.
