Nissan is trying to make it easier to buy your next car from the couch with a new program it's calling "Nissan@Home." The program ran as a trial at seven dealerships over the summer, but Nissan says it's expanding throughout the rest of the country over the next few months.
At its core, the program creates a Nissan@Home hub on Nissan's website where customers can go through a number of steps you might go through at the dealership. You can build your ideal car, find similar inventory, estimate your payments, look through a digital brochure, attain an internet quote and book a test drive from the hub. It's a fairly comprehensive one-stop-shop, and it looks like you can book a test drive for anything, even a GT-R.
Sony has since launched a registration page where gamers who are interested in being one of the first few to purchase the console can sign up. According to Sony, “There will be a limited quantity of PS5 consoles available for pre-order, so we will be inviting some of our existing consumers to be one of the first to pre-order one from PlayStation.”
Basically, gamers can take part in a raffle in which if they are chosen, they will be given an invite to purchase the console and guarantee themselves a unit when it becomes available. As Sony notes, there will be limited quantities of the PS5 at launch, so by registering, you’ll stand a better chance of nabbing it once it goes live.

Sony Xperia fans have been spared the monstrosity of displays with notches over the last couple of years. Sony thankfully rejected the use of a notch in their displays, favouring taller 21:9 displays with thinner bezels in recent handsets. A number of smartphone manufacturers have used notches over recent years, including the latest iPhone models, so we're glad Sony didn't follow the trend.
Japan's Defense Ministry says it has reached an agreement to purchase an island in the country's southwest to use as a new staging ground for US carrier aircraft drills.

Have you been on the fence about purchasing the Nintendo Switch? If you’ve been waiting for a deal that saves you some money in the process, consider what Best Buy is now offering. The retailer will provide customers who purchase a new Nintendo Switch console with one free game. The promotion does provide considerable bang for the buck.
Given just how popular the Nintendo Switch has proven to be, it was always understood that the console won’t receive any meaningful discounts for the foreseeable future. That still happens to be the case and most customers just saved some money by using eBay’s site-wide coupons and even they don’t seem to be available anymore for the Switch.
