It probably comes as no surprise that manual transmissions are on uncertain ground these days. Fewer models are offered with them, and public perception is that rowing-your-own is more of an enthusiast thing. But carmakers do not stick with automatics for no reason: expected and realized demand tells manufacturers if it's worth engineering a three-pedal variant. A good example is the new Toyota Supra, which only comes as automatic. There's surely a justified reason for the omission of a manual option, especially when we take a look at these manual take-rate figures provided by CarBuzz.
You can buy the Corolla sedan and hatch as a manual, just like the Tacoma, Yaris sedan and the 86 coupe. CarBuzz discussed the manual gearboxes' popularity with a Toyota representative at a Supra launch event, and the numbers are telling.
In Windows whenever you need to debug a problem that’s plaguing your computer system, the best way is to go into Safe Mode (check out our guide here). In case you’ve never had the misfortune of experiencing it, Android also has its own Safe Mode which it enters into when it detects that something is wrong, like an app error, malware, or operating system glitch.
It can be a bit disconcerting to see your phone boot up in Safe Mode, but if you have experienced it (or are experiencing it), here are several ways that you can get out of Safe Mode and back into normal mode.
The great thing about using iTunes with the iPhone is that syncing your music is pretty simple and straightforward. However, if you’ve switched from an iPhone to an Android device and want to transfer your iTunes music over, there are several ways that you can actually go about doing it, and we are going to show you how.
This is the most basic and straightforward method available where you literally copy your music files from your iTunes library and paste it into your Android handset. Here’s how you do that.
The 2019 Toyota RAV4 is not only completely redesigned, but reimagined as well. As we detailed in our first drive review, the new RAV4 ditches the more car-like and uber-utilitarian nature of its predecessor for something that's more SUV-like and characterful. It's a new direction exemplified in the RAV4 Adventure trim, which specifically targets those folks who plan to actually take their compact crossover to the great outdoors. People who will get it dirty, use the extra ground clearance and store things on the roof. You know, the sort of people who would consider the 2019 Subaru Forester. It too is redesigned for 2019, but its transformation is almost unnoticeable compared to the RAV4's. Forester customers were obviously quite happy with the way things were.
We got a chance to drive both the 2019 RAV4 and 2019 Forester back-to-back last week both on-road and off-road, so let's take a look at how they compare, including a look at their on-paper specs.
The ceremonies marking Crown Prince Naruhito's enthronement will be different from the ones his father experienced when he took the throne.
A big change this time is that two key ceremonies will happen this fall -- the same year as the enthronement.
Last time, both were staged nearly two years later because the succession occurred when Emperor Showa died.
The country was in a period of mourning and officials needed time to prepare for the ceremonies.
Sending emails hasn’t changed much in the last decade or so. Yes, the user interface has gotten better and we have more features but the basic stuff remains the same. Despite all the newness security is still one of the main concerns we have while using email. Gmail has decided to tackle this issue with the help of Gmail Confidential mode.
You might be wondering what is Gmail Confidential mode? No, it’s not an encryption service by Gmail. The confidential mode works by deleting the email after a specific time period, much like the burner phones most of us have used in the past.
TOKYO — Japan's Toyota Motor Corp will offer free access to its hybrid-vehicle patents through 2030, it said on Wednesday, seeking to expand use of the lower-emission technology even as the global industry shifts toward fully electric cars.
The pledge by one of the world's biggest automakers to share its closely guarded patents, the second time it has opened up a technology, is aimed at driving industry uptake of hybrids and fending off the challenge of all-battery electric vehicles (EVs).

No one can argue that Sony is not bold, when looking at the introduction of 21:9 ultra-wide displays in its latest Xperia smartphones. The adoption of this ‘cinema' 21:9 aspect ratio is the key marketing point for Sony's 2019 smartphones. It also provides differentiation against peers in what remains a very competitive market. Sony has introduced its fair share of gimmicks over the years, but is this one of them?
