I’ve just finished watching Michael Douglas play Liberace in Behind The Candelabra, smartest looking man in a toupée. As a rule a hairpiece doesn’t sit well, they’re always obvious, rarely believable. Michael Douglas is a a rarity – NO MAN SHOULD EVER WEAR A WIG!
All that said, someplace in the galaxy YOU KNOW someone’s been trying to fit tech-stuff inside a wig, hide technology under not-real hair, it’s such an obvious fit, right?
Apparently someone at Sony, the genius’ behind Blueray, Walkman, Playstation and Plasma, thinks this idea might fly.
According to Bloomberg, Sony has filed for a US patent on a device called “Smartwig.” Clearly Sony has disobeyed the first rule of wig-wearing, “Never admit it’s a piece.”
The new Gizmo apparently has mobile connectivity – tablet + phone – it’s also kitted with built-in navigation, a health checker, camera and slide show viewer, seriously: refer to rule 1, never admit…
Sony – holding onto the little wisdom it has left – has admitted it’s unsure if it intends to actually commercialise the device, but we still can’t get the image of a coke-bottle goggle wearing Japanese boffin dashing about the lab wearing his supershiny black Smartwig :: Read the full article »»»»

Kazuo Hirai is due to formally take over as Sony CEO on April 1, replacing Howard Stringer. Hirai said that while some management changes had already been identified there was still a long way to go to “explain to everybody who’s doing what.” Sony has declared a return to the smartphone business, unveiling its first smartphones under the Sony brand, but warned the group’s painful transition would not be as fast as rebranding.
“People have these lofty expectations that we’re going to have all the answers to all the problems that plague the world on April 1,” Hirai said in an interview at the Barcelona Mobile World Congress. “We’re not going to have that.”
The once-stellar consumer electronics brand is heading for what it has warned would be a much bigger-than-expected $2.9 billion annual loss, its fourth in a row. The surge of red ink has put Hirai under intense pressure from investors and ratings agencies to quickly staunch losses at the sprawling electronics group. Read the full article »»»»

Oops!
Right about now, Sony has got to be wondering what the __ they did . . .
In another round of hack attempts, Sony has been forced to shut down almost 100,000 user accounts. The company said last night that it had shut down approximately 93,000 accounts on its online gaming and entertainment networks after detecting a mass, attempted sign-in by a third party using stolen IDs and passwords.

Computers are shrinking themselves into new places around our homes and offices. Driving this revolution is a new class of application friendly device, The Information Device. Sony’s new HID-B70H Dash is one such device, this is a 7″ Touch-screen Über Information Device.
Flexibility is the Dash’s middle name, this flexibility gives it many personalities; Über Alarm Clock, electronic side kick in the kitchen, picture frame, media terminal or real-time data display. You make the choice by selecting and installing applications from a library of over a thousand free applications, turning the Dash into your own personal information – dash – hound.
Once it’s off and running there’s no restarts, no refreshing, no crash’s, no hassle operation. Sony has kept the design of the two new Dash models understated – the HID-B7 $129.95 USD and HID-B70H $169.95 USD -, they are handsome but not over the top, able to fit into any situation. Both models will be available in October and can be pre-order now. Read the full article »»»»
