We spend an obscene amount of time on our phones on a daily basis to the point where for some, the endless stream of messages and notifications from social media can be extremely distracting when it comes to getting work done. However, Google is here to help with a new feature in Android Q called Focus Mode.
With Focus Mode, users will be able to hit the pause button on apps that they don’t want to be distracted by. This means that if you’re trying to cut out messages or notifications from social media during your working hours or while you’re at school, Focus Mode will let you do that. It will also give users the option to allow the notifications for other apps to come through, so you’ll get to control what you see.
Nissan Motor has been reviewing its management structure in light of the accusations leveled at former Chair Carlos Ghosn. As part of that effort, the automaker convened a panel with 3rd-party experts for the fourth time on Sunday.

According to the rumors, Sony’s PlayStation 5 console could already be in development. Some believe that it could be announced possibly next year (there are some who claim this year but it seems doubtful). If the rumors are true, then we can’t say we’re surprised to learn that Sony might be shifting focus towards development of first-party titles for the console already.
This is according to Niko Partners analyst Daniel Ahmad (via VG247) who claims that Sony’s first-party studios are already working on games for the PS5. In his post on ResetEra, “In general, most of the focus for Sony [first-party] is on PS5 right now. It is still early to talk about next gen but I imagine we’ll hear some whispers come out of GDC.”
A couple of months ago, there was a report that claimed that Nintendo could be planning a hardware revision of the Nintendo Switch for the second half of 2019. Could that report be true? Speaking to Forbes in an interview, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime remained coy when asked about a new Nintendo Switch.
According to Fils-Aime, “Right now, as we go into our second holiday, my focus is making sure the current grey and neon Switch continue to have momentum in the market place. You saw systems, whether it’s our own or competitive home console systems, utilize that tactic a bit later in the life cycle. So right now, the current execution of Nintendo Switch with the Joy-Con and all of the capabilities, that’s our focus right now.”
The biggest annual gaming convention is going take place next month and it has now been revealed that the Sony E3 2018 announcements are going to be focused on “deep dives.” Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shawn Layden mentioned during the latest PlayStation Blogcast that the company is going to take a slightly different approach to its E3 announcements this year.
Sony’s previous presentations have brought us a flurry of announcements but Layden’s comments suggest that this won’t be the case in 2018. Sony has decided to “refresh and remake” its E3 2018 show so fans should expect to see “deep dives” into PlayStation 4 exclusives such as Death Stranding and Spider-Man.
