It's all Lenovo for Moto and Sky enters a new era of TV watching
Shock news from Google this week: it's selling Motorola, the smartphone firm it bought for billions, for a fraction of the price it originally paid. The lucky buyer is Lenovo, but don't expect that to translate into bargain handsets: without Google's funding, there probably won't be any more astoundingly cheap phones like the Moto G.

President Satoru Iwata and other board members will be taking pay cuts ranging from 20% to 50% while they get the company back on track. Profits are down 30% and sales forecasts for the quirky Wii U have been cut by more than two-thirds. The answer, according to this week's strategy meeting, might be in health monitoring, though specifics aren't yet clear.

Good news for anybody who thinks Sky's EPG is looking a bit dated: there's a new one imminent, and it'll reflect the changing way we approach TV.
