The good news is that if that’s you, you’ll be pleased to learn that you’ll be able to transfer your saved data between the consoles. This means that you can pick up where you left off with your games, so you can leave the Switch at home and take the Switch Lite with you when you travel. This was confirmed by Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser who said, “Yes, you will have the ability to transfer between devices, your gameplay experiences. More to come on there, but that is the intention.”
Bowser did not detail how exactly this would be achieved, but as he said, the company will reveal more information about that later. Perhaps Nintendo could be planning on introducing multidevice accounts, but we’ll have to wait and see. The Switch Lite, for those who missed the announcement, is a smaller and cheaper version of the Switch.
The problem with electric cars is that they usually take a while to charge. Even fast charging still cannot compare to the speed it takes to refill a car with gas. We imagine that eventually there could be a point in time when we get used to charging times or when charging times drop, but until then, it seems that Toyota is exploring a new electric car concept.
As you can see in the photo above, Toyota is experimenting with a new electric car concept that comes with solar panels built into the roof, bonnet, and boot of the car. What this means is that as the car drives, the solar panels will be capable of drawing power from the sun, which in turn keeps the car’s battery charged.
The new-generation Suzuki Jimny has managed to conquer the hearts and minds of off-road enthusiasts. Unlike other tiny ‘SUVs', it's actually built on a ladder-on-frame chassis, features all-wheel drive, solid axles, low-range gearbox and pretty much everything needed to turn it into a small off-road warrior.
Microsoft’s ‘Your Phone’ app for Windows 10 allows for greater connectivity between your PC and smartphone. The idea is to enable users to interact with content on their smartphone without requiring them to use the device as long as it’s connected to their Windows 10 PC wirelessly. Checking notifications is why most of us pick up our phones so many times every day and that’s just going to get a bit easier with the latest update to the app.
The latest update for Your Phone now brings the ability to mirror notifications from an Android smartphone to a Windows 10 PC. This functionality has been in testing for a couple of months now and it’s finally being made available to all users starting today.
It was back in April this year that Google enabled Android devices running version 7.0 and up to effectively double as a physical security key for accessing Google services like Gmail. The company is now expanding the same ability to iOS. This means that an Android device can now be used as a physical two factor authentication security key to verify log-ins made on iOS devices.
When the feature was first launched in this year, it only worked with Windows 10, macOS, and Chrome OS devices. However, the process is a bit different on iOS compared to these devices. It doesn’t use Chrome to communicate with the device, it Android device will use the Smart Lock app from Google instead.
The app has recently been updated where it now comes with a new feature called “Pop Up Shazam”. This seems to be an Android-only feature at the moment, which is a little ironic considering that Apple now owns the company. According to Shazam, “When Pop Up Shazam is switched on, you will see a persistent notification in you notification drawer. This notification will be used to trigger the floating button. Just tap on it and you will see the Shazam button appear. To Shazam tap on the button and we will tell you the result wherever you are.”
This means that if you’re watching a video on YouTube or Instagram and there is a song playing and you want to know who it is, you can just press the floating Shazam button and it will attempt to identify the song for you. As for iOS users, as we said, this is an Android-only feature (for now), but in the meantime there are alternatives to identifying songs on your phone. This includes using a pair of earphones and placing them next to your phone’s microphone.
Last year hot on the heels of Nikon and Canon announcing their own full-frame mirrorless cameras, Panasonic decided to hop on board as well with their new Panasonic Lumix S-series of cameras. Now it looks like the company is back with their latest offering in the form of the Panasonic Lumix S1H.
It is clear that the S1H is being aimed more towards videographers. This is because the camera is capable at recording at 6K resolution. It does have a bit of an odd aspect ratio of 3:2, but for those who want something more standard, it can also record at 5.9K at 16:9 at 30fps. Exactly how many of us would need to shoot in 6K, let alone watch videos in 6K, are probably not that many.
