A Sony anunciou um novo serviço de TV baseado na nuvem que oferecerá uma enorme seleção de canais de TV sem contrato mensal e estará disponível em diversos dispositivos. É a tentativa da Sony (nos EUA) de substituir a sua TV a cabo.
Ouvimos falar do PlayStation Vue pela primeira vez em janeiro, na CES 2014. Ele começará a ser distribuído no PlayStation 3 e 4, por convites e em beta, ainda em novembro, e depois disso a dispositivos “Sony e não-Sony” em algum ponto não identificado do futuro. O beta estará disponível, a princípio, em Nova York, e oferecerá 75 canais — incluindo os da CBS, Fox e NBCUniversal.
No momento o preço permanece um mistério. A única coisa que a Sony diz é que ele não exigirá qualquer tipo de contrato mensal ou hardware extra para ser usado, e que não haverá taxa de instalação. O serviço estará disponível para todos no começo de 2015.
Falando à BusinessWeek, Andrew House, presidente da Sony Computer Entertainment, disse que “esta é uma oportunidade, na minha visão, de preencher uma grande lacuna na transformação do que no passado foi um dispositivo dedicado a jogos em um verdadeiro hub de entretenimento. Não há nada mais amplo no entretenimento do que o espaço da transmissão de TV ao vivo para mercados de massa.” É por aí.
Se será tão fácil assim para a Sony competir com o modelo de assinatura das companhias de TV a cabo tradicionais, é preciso esperar para ver. Como a BusinessWeek nota, alguns dos canais que o PlayStation Vue oferece não funcionarão em dispositivos móveis porque os acordos para viabilizar isso não foram feitos. E nenhum programa será disponibilizado por mais de 28 dias.
Enfim, são problemas que qualquer empresa que anseia bater de frente com a TV a cabo enfrentará. Talvez seja melhor ir à luta do que fugir dela. Das imagens que a Sony liberou, o serviço parece bacana, bem projetado e lembrando vagamente as boas características da TV a cabo. Se será algo bom além das aparências? Em breve nossos amigos americanos poderão nos dizer. [Sony]

O que o Music Key fará é basicamente formalizar o que o YouTube já é para muitas pessoas: o serviço de vídeo do Google também funciona, para muitos, como uma ótima fonte de canções para ouvir na internet. E, por US$ 8 por mês (preço promocional, depois ele custará US$ 10), será possível ouvir músicas mesmo com a tela do smartphone bloqueada e sem precisar passar por anúncios, além de poder armazenar algumas para ouvir offline.
Mas o Google já tem um serviço de música por streaming – o Google Play Música, que já está disponível no Brasil para clientes da Samsung e, até o fim do ano, estará disponível para todos. Então um vai competir com o outro? Em parte: assinantes do YouTube Music Key também terão acesso ao Google Play Music, então é meio como se você assinasse dois pelo preço de um.
E tanto a versão web quanto os apps para Android e iOS do YouTube ganharam uma nova área “Música”, que mostra quais foram os últimos vídeos musicais que você assistiu pelo serviço e oferece a possibilidade de ouvir playlists com base nessas canções. Essa atualização já aparece na web e no app para Android, e em breve estará também no iOS.
Inicialmente o Music Key estará disponível apenas nos EUA e em seis países europeus através de convites – os convidados ganharão seis meses gratuitos e depois a possibilidade de assinar o serviço por US$ 8 mensais. [YouTube]

O Google anunciou hoje que o Android 5.0 será distribuído a todos os dispositivos Nexus, e começou a liberar a atualização para os usuários. Se você tem um Nexus 5, Nexus 10, Nexus 7 2012 ou Nexus 7 2013 (nas versões Wi-Fi ou 3G), já pode pegar o Lollipop.
A atualização está sendo distribuída via OTA, então você pode ir em Configurações Sobre o telefone Atualizações do sistema e tocar em Atualizar.
Como nota o Android Police, se você está usando o preview para desenvolvedores ou uma ROM customizada, precisa voltar para o Android padrão para receber o Lollipop oficial via OTA.
— Android (@Android) November 12, 2014
Como instalar agora mesmo
O Google também disponibilizou as imagens de fábrica do Android 5.0. Elas permitem que você instale o Lollipop agora mesmo no seu Nexus, mas tem um porém: isso requer um pouco de experiência e apaga tudo no seu celular (ou tablet).
Se você estiver com pressa, então baixe a imagem do Android 5.0 para o seu dispositivo neste link; e baixe o Android SDK neste link. Depois, siga as instruções deste tutorial: você terá que usar a linha de comando para desbloquear o bootloader e instalar a imagem de fábrica.
E o Nexus 4?
Se você tem um Nexus 4, precisa esperar mais um pouquinho pela atualização oficial; o Google não revela nenhuma data específica.
Mas se você quiser o Lollipop agora mesmo (e for um usuário experiente), boa notícia: o brasileiro Anderson Aragão levou o Android 5.0 para o aparelho. É preciso instalar o ClockworkMod (instruções em vídeo aqui) e baixar a ROM no XDA Developers. Isto apaga todos os dados do seu Nexus 4; faça um backup antes.
Se você não tem um dispositivo Nexus, confira no link abaixo quando (ou se) ele receberá o Lollipop da fabricante.
