Sony is very serious about giving PlayStation 4 owners the ability to play their console without actually playing with their consoles, so the company is expanding its remote play functionality to more devices. The required app hit the Play Store just last week, but it only worked for the Z3 line of devices. Now that's gradually changing.
Following the latest over-the-air update, the Xperia Z2 and Z2 Tablet will be able to share in the experience.Read More
Fire TV is getting an update that bumps the software powering the set-top box up to version 22.214.171.124_user_514006420. This awkward string of letters and numbers will provide owners and guests alike with more ways to get enjoyment out of Amazon's little black box.
This update gives the Fire TV the ability to run tablet-style games using an Amazon Fire Bluetooth controller. The modified game controls significantly expand the amount of content available to the platform.Read More
Buyers of the Huawei Ascend Mate2 in the US are fuming today over news that there won't be a KitKat update for this device. It's not unusual for older devices to be left in the dust, but the Mate2 was announced in early 2014 and only went on sale for US consumers in June of this year.

The newest Android Wear update has started rolling out to the Samsung Gear Live after hitting G Watch and Moto 360 devices in the last few days. The update comes with version number 4.4W.2 and makes a handful of tweaks to the OS, not the least of which is the option to hide notification cards on the watch face.Read More
The HTC One E8 is a plastic remake of the all metal M8 that sports identical specs with the exception of the camera (13MP vs the latter's 4 "UltraPixel"). With this being the case, it's only fitting that the pair get an OTA update at the same time. Sprint is now pushing one out to the two devices that introduces basically the same features across both.
The most interesting item on the change log is perhaps the addition of international Wi-Fi calling.Read More
The Galaxy Mega is a big phone. This update, on the other hand, is somewhat modest. Still, for those rocking a Galaxy Mega it's a big enough deal. The NJ1 update adds a few new calling features as well as some patches for Android security vulnerabilities.Read More
