Xperia Z2 gets update from Sony, with enhanced call quality

The Sony Xperia Z2 got an update which is in the process of being rolled out to carriers and regions as of today, but will be available for all Xperia Z2 variants regardless of region. According to Sony, the major thing to look out for in this update will be the “enhanced call quality” that should be a major improvement to the already impressive handset.

As per usual, the update – official firmware tag is 17.1.2.A.0.314 – is being rolled out in a staggered manner, and Sony cannot give exact dates as to when the update will be pushed to a user’s Xperia Z2. It does, however, support updating directly via PC with your Xperia Z2 connected by data cable.

If you wear a Jawbone UP fitness wristband, you probably use it for step counting and sleep tracking, but not food logging. That’s because the process of logging meals is tedious and inconvenient — something Jawbone is aiming to fix with a new app update.

UP 3.2 takes some of the tedium out of keeping track of your meal. Before today, UP users had to manually enter every meal item, searching Jawbone’s database for the type of food, then entering portion size. For. Every. Damn. Thing.

With the update (available now), users will have an easier time counting calories. For starters, the app suggests both your recent entries as well as common meal pairings; enter a fried egg, and you’ll see suggestions to add toast, coffee and bacon.

The Google Glass Explorer Edition is still a product very much in its infancy. It’s something we’ve been well aware since we reviewed the device almost a year ago. While some are quick to declare Google Glass as “DOA” due to pricing or privacy concerns, the fact remains that Glass in its current form will continue to evolve and change as Google gains valuable feedback from its Explorers, and as the wearable nears a general consumer release.

It wasn’t too long ago Google revised the hardware with Google Glass 2.0, offering a free upgrade to everyone who purchased the previous version of Glass to the new and improved model with support for prescription frames and stereo headphones...

While those of us in the US are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Sony Xperia Z2 (a leak suggests a “special” version is being prepared for Verizon), Sony continues supporting the device with exclusive new applications. The latest is a Live on YouTube app which offers a handy feature not even the official YouTube provides, giving users the ability to broadcast a live streaming event straight from their Xperia device.

Somewhat of a handy tool for bloggers covering live events of some sort, we’re not entirely sure how useful this will be for the everyday-man. Still, you can never have too many options and we’re sure someone out there wouldn’t mind sharing their life with loved ones be it a concert or other event...
