Many people are under the impression that once Apple finally launches its smartwatch, the market for wearables will suddenly become mainstream and be taken to the next level. Taking an idea that already exists and making it incredibly successful isn't something new to Apple, but does the Apple Watch have what it takes? The wearable hasn't even shipped yet, but has already won multiple awards and has been featured on numerous fashion magazine covers. Do you think the Apple Watch will be a huge success? Let us know your thoughts.
PSXPeria Now Mostly Working for the Xperia Play
The PSXPeria Project is one of those pieces of software that isn’t very well known, but one that everyone who owns a Sony Ericsson Xperia Play should have. The premise, as stated in its Github:
This tool will take a PSX image that you legally own and convert it to be playable on the Xperia Play with the emulator extracted from the packaged game “Crash Bandicoot.”
For those who don’t quite know what that means, it basically says that this software will take any legally owned PSX image and make it work on the Xperia Play. Who doesn’t want that? XDA Senior Members fma965 and Masters2150 have worked diligently together, along with some help from some others, to bring Xperia Play users the PSXPeria software.
The software itself appears to be pretty straight forward and easy to use. Simply open up the GUI, follow the instructions and the program will convert the PSX image into the appropriate format to be used on the Xperia Play. For those who have trouble understanding the written instructions posted by Masters2150, fma965 has also posted a very thorough and helpful video tutorial to help users get it done. They have also posted a full list of games that have been proven to be compatible with PSXPeria and that list should keep growing as users try it out and see the results.
Additional info, download links, the full story of how this application came to be and, most importantly, the full list of shout outs to those who helped can be found in the PSXPeria thread. There’s no root required, and these games can be installed and uninstalled without messing with any system files.

The smartphone landscape is drastically changing its focus. What was once a North-America-centric monopoly of high-specification phones is now merely an afterimage of the past. The meat of the game is elsewhere now; emerging markets looking for good bang-for-buck are what OEMs are increasingly aiming towards, and in this new game the old players must adapt-or-die. Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
There are so many Power Banks out there. However, they are not all the same. Some sacrifice weight for capacity. Others do the opposite. Some come with two ports and some come with more, while others come with less. Some are just batteries with a case around it, but others have some unique features. In this episode of XDA TV, Producer TK reviews the RAVPower RP-WD02 Wireless Filehub & Portable Travel Router. This device is the successor to the RP-WD01...
