Samsung set to discontinue Galaxy Alpha in favor of cheaper phones

The Galaxy Alpha might have been among the best phones Samsung ever produced — it’s certainly the prettiest — if it weren’t for a couple of stumbles: the battery didn’t last long enough and its full flagship price forced it to compete against better-rounded rivals. Now, just a few brief months after its introduction, the Alpha is reportedly being supplanted by its successor Galaxy A5, which will take over as the leading Samsung handset for the mid-range market.

ET News reports that the Galaxy A5, which launched in China last month, is being brought over to South Korea as part of Samsung’s effort to “take the bull by the horns” and reorganize its slumping smartphone division. The 5-inch A5 is a continuation of the Alpha’s design…

Sony reportedly ditching pricey OLED TVs for cheaper 4K LCD sets

More pixels and lower prices trump the blackest blacks for Sony, which is reportedly suspending its efforts to make OLED television sets.

Oculus founder says Facebook deal will make virtual reality cheaper and better

One year ago, Oculus founder Palmer Luckey told me that his virtual reality headset company had no intention to sell. He said that the team had agreed, for the time being, to stay independent — to make sure that it didn’t have to cater to another company’s business strategy in order to further its goals. When Oculus raised $ 100 million in funding, it seemed that independence was assured, even though the company picked up a few new bosses along the way.
