Tech blogs and news sites have been buzzing over the past several days about Microsoft Corp.’s MSFT, +1.27% alleged development of a new web browser for Windows 10, to be known as “Spartan.” Websites such as BGR and Neowin have carried what they say are leaked screen shots of the new browser, which BGR said Tuesday would include voice-command features that could allow users to mark sites as favorites or home pages via speech. Microsoft is set to announce plans for the new browser at a Windows event on Jan. 21, BGR said. Neowin said Wednesday that Spartan would also likely feature a “share icon” that would make it easier to post website links onto social media. It would also carry a “reading mode” feature that allows users to see just the text of an article, making it easier to read, Neowin reported. It also said the new browser would have a “borderless window,” allowing “your content to stretch from edge to edge,” and with no information bar at the bottom of the screen. Microsoft already offers the Internet Explorer browser, which is either the most popular browser in the U.S. or is second to Google Inc.’s GOOG, -0.17% Chrome, depending on which data you look at.

Sony Corp Chief Executive Kazuo Hirai on Tuesday said he does not expect the November cyber attack on the company's film studio to have a significant financial impact, two weeks after the studio rolled out the movie at the heart of the attack. The studio, Sony Pictures Entertainment, said separately that the film, "The Interview," has generated revenue of $36 million. Hirai told reporters at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas that he had signed off on all major decisions by the company in response to the attack, which the U.S. government has blamed on North Korea. Sony's network was crippled by hackers as the company prepared to release "The Interview," a comedy about a fictional plot to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The attack was followed by online leaks of unreleased movies and emails that caused embarrassment to executives. "We are still reviewing the effects of the cyber attack," Hirai told reporters. "However, I do not see it as something that will cause a material upheaval on Sony Pictures business operations, basically, in terms of results for the current fiscal year." More»

Lenovo Group Ltd. (992) will bring Motorola phones back to China in the first quarter, reintroducing the brand to the world’s largest market after an absence of more than two years. The Moto X will be sold in February, with the Moto X Pro and Moto G to follow later, Motorola spokesman William Moss said in phone interview today. Lenovo completed the $2.91 billion purchase of Motorola Mobility from Google Inc. (GOOG) in October. Lenovo, the world’s largest maker of personal computers, is focused on an expansion in smartphones amid a global decline in PC demand. The Beijing-based company’s phone push has been challenged by cross-town rival Xiaomi Corp., which surpassed the company in China and worldwide smartphone market share in the third quarter. “Motorola’s brand is well liked and respected in many markets, especially being a U.S. brand and long legacy in mobile” said Jessica Kwee, a Singapore-based analyst with researcher Canalys. “It is something that Lenovo can leverage.” Shares of Lenovo rose 5 percent to HK$10.58 as of 3:32 p.m. in Hong Kong, headed for the biggest gain since March 11. The stock gained 8.2 percent last year, its sixth straight annual gain. More»
