During its press event today at IFA, Sony said to expect the Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact in October. The 4K-monster Xperia Z5 Premium will arrive in November.

Remember the Nest Thermostat we showed you last week, with the bigger display, that we called the 3rd gen model? Nest made it official today. Yep, the new Nest 3rd gen Learning Thermostat is real and available today from Nest.
The new device not only has a bigger, sharper display, but it’s also “thinner, sleeker, and more beautiful than ever.” Nest says that the new Thermostat knows when you walk into a room from a distance and will light up to show you the temperature or time or a big clock face. This new feature is called Farsight. (more…)
“It’s time,” according to Lenovo. Time for what, you ask? The new Moto 360 (2nd gen) of course.
The image below, which features that opening quote along with an image of the new Moto 360 emerging from water, was posted to Lenovo’s official Weibo account this morning. The image is an event invite with a date of September 8, which we can only assume is the day Lenovo plans to make the new Moto 360 available. Well, there is always a chance that this is when the watch will be unveiled, but we get the feeling it will be official on some level before then. (more…)
