Best Buy Hints Netflix & Youtube Are Coming To The Nintendo Switch

Best Buy Hints Netflix & YouTube Are Coming To The Nintendo Switch

Reports from last year suggested that Netflix for the Nintendo Switch was ready for launch and pending approval from Nintendo. That clearly did not happen as fast forward more than half a year later, we're still waiting. In fact earlier this year there were reports that suggested that Netflix for the Switch would still be quite a ways away.

However could Nintendo surprise us at E3 2018? According to a recent listing on Best Buy, it seems that they have hinted that both Netflix and YouTube will be available on the Nintendo Switch. The listing also mentions Hulu which is already launched on the Switch, so it seems that there is a chance this listing could be accurate.

2018 Nissan Rogue Does Its Best Millennium Falcon Impression

2018 Nissan Rogue does its best Millennium Falcon impression

With Solo, the latest Star Wars film, on the way, it was only a matter of time before we saw yet another custom Nissan made to look like a starship from the series. And for a film about Han Solo, the only logical ship to recreate was Solo's famous Millennium Falcon. It's built in the same impressive fashion as past custom Nissans, even if the proportions are a little odd translated to a car. This Rogue features the key exterior components of Solo's ship, from a panel over the windshield to replicate the circular cockpit of the Falcon, to the glowing blue thrusters at the back. On top is the radar dish and a cannon.

2018 Crosstrek propels Subaru to best-ever April sales

April was a dismal month for most automakers, with sales declines that ranged from 4.7 percent for Ford to a whopping 28 percent for Nissan. So here comes mighty little Subaru, which claimed the month as the best April in its history.

The gain is entirely attributable to the Crosstrek, which is all-new for 2018. Sales of the compact, raised crossover climbed almost 70 percent for the month to 12,266. Year to date, Subaru has sold 45,728 Crosstreks, an increase of 66.6 percent. That helped push Subaru's total U.S. sales to 53,170 in April and 202,873 for the first four months of 2018, increases of 1.5 percent and 3.2 percent, respectively. It also marks 77 consecutive months of yearly month-over-month growth for Subaru.

Nintendo Switch Might Be The Best-selling Console Ever In The Us

Nintendo Switch Might Be The Best-Selling Console Ever In The US

Many can probably agree that the Nintendo Switch is seeing the success that its predecessor, the Wii U, never did. The console is regarded as the fastest-selling console ever in the US, managed to outsell both the PS4 and Xbox One in some months, and to top it off, even beat its predecessor's lifetime sales within its first year.

Now according to data released by the NPD Group, it appears that the Nintendo Switch could very well be considered the best-selling console ever in the US. However we should point out a caveat to this claim and that is the NPD is basing this on first year sales alone. We're not talking about total sales, but rather this is based on what each console managed to sell within its first year of release.

Canon's Latest Speedlite Flash Uses Ai To Find The Best Angles

Canon's Latest Speedlite Flash Uses AI To Find The Best Angles

One of the reasons why external flash units are so much better than built-in flash is due to its ability to angle the flash. Given that it is generally not advised to use flash directly on the subject, angling it means that photographers can bounce light off surfaces like reflector boards, the wall, or ceiling, thus creating a softer and more natural look.

However unless you're a seasoned professional, how would you know which is the best angle? That's the kind of guesswork that Canon wants to remove from the equation, and have since introduced the Speedlite 470EX-AI Flash. This is a flash unit that's unlike any other in the market, simply because it relies on AI to try and figure out the best angles for the current scene.
