PlayStation 4 goes on sale in Japan, and there’s no competition

The PlayStation 4 is now available in Sony’s home country of Japan, over three months after it first became available in the US. The release comes after Sony has racked up impressive figures elsewhere; the company announced earlier this week that it has sold over 5.3 million consoles worldwide as of February 8th, and managed to nearly double Microsoft’s Xbox One sales in the US for the month of January. It remains difficult to find on store shelves.

In Japan, the console is being offered in two packages: a regular edition for ¥41,900, and a bundle with the PlayStation Camera peripheral for ¥46,100. Both options also include a downloadable version of Sony’s family-friendly action game Knack. Microsoft has not announced any…

NHTSA tells Tesla there’s no such thing as a 5.4-star crash rating

In August, Tesla Motors announced that its Model S electric vehicle had received the highest safety rating in the United States, achieving “a new combined record of 5.4 stars” based on crash test data. There’s only one problem with that: the US National Highway Transportation Safety Adminstration, which conducts those tests, doesn’t give ratings over five stars — period. So today, the NHTSA is attempting to set the record straight, revising its advertising guidelines to forbid automakers from stating that a car received a higher score.

So There’s Walking Dead Monopoly And Risk Games Now

walking-dead-monopoly-1.jpg This is the $ 40 Walking Dead themed Monopoly game available from ThinkGeek (plus a ton of other places you’re welcome to search yourself because I’m not Santa). It plays exactly like Monopoly, but with a zombie apocalypse theme. There’s also a Risk game. You want them? Cool, go buy them. You want me to come play? Fine, but you better have a fridge full of beer. And if you beat me I will flip the table and call you a filthy cheater. WHICH YOU ARE. I knew I never should have let you be the banker. “You insisted.” Yeah, but only because I hate counting. “Hate it, or never learned how?” Wow, really? “How many fingers am I holding up?” Four. Now how many am I holding up? “That’s a fist.” Sure is, PREPARE TO HURT. Hit the jump for a closeup of the Monopoly board and tokens and Risk.

TiVo iOS apps now let you stream and download shows from Roamio DVRs anywhere there’s WiFi

The TiVo Roamio Pro and Plus received glowing reviews when they launched, but they were missing their namesake feature: the ability to stream shows to phones and tablets outside your house. That’s all changed now: a new version of the TiVo iOS app lets you stream shows from your DVR anywhere there’s Wi-Fi — and you can download shows over both LTE and Wi-Fi as well. (Streaming over LTE will arrive early next year, says TiVo.)

Streaming quality is obviously dependent on your bandwidth, and a new video quality meter in the app will alert you when things are getting choppy and prompt you to download the show instead — partial download support means you can start watching after just a few minutes. Roamio review units were set up with a…

Lenovo exec: there’s no longer a need for Windows RT

Lenovo executive hints that Windows RT is out of the game

We’re at Lenovo’s 2013 press conference, and during the Q&A session, the company’s executives offered a hint as to their lack of plans for Windows RT devices. When quizzed on Microsoft’s moribund operating system, Australian marketing chief Nick Reynolds said that Intel’s Haswell has eliminated the choice between long battery life and good performance. Since, consequently, users can run full-fat Windows 8 and get a full day of use from a single charge, there’s not much call for a low-power version. To us, at least, it seems like it’s not too far away from them saying that we won’t see a follow-up to last year’s RT-running Yoga 11, but we’ll check with our Magic 8 ball just to be sure.

There’s a tiny coach in your basketball

There are tons of gadgets to help golfers develop the perfect swing, but it’s hard to apply the same unobtrusive training tools to other sports. Evo One, though, is the counterpoint — it’s a Kickstarter project that puts a tiny coach inside a basketball to help players improve their game. A small gyroscopic sensor detects backspin and emits a whistle when the ball is shot correctly, allowing players to make corrections as they play.

The actual “coach” part of the ball is a thumb-sized device that slips into a small hole in a modified basketball. The ball still maintains regulation size and weight even with the sensor, so it’s no different than shooting hoops with a standard basketball.

The Evo One isn’t yet a reality — the…
