Here Is A Fan-created 3d Model Of What The Xperia Xz2 Compact May Look Like

Here is a fan-created 3D model of what the Xperia XZ2 Compact may look like

To say that there has been an adverse reaction to the recent Xperia XZ2 Compact prototype picture we posted, is a bit of an understatement. It remains to be seen what the final product will look like, but we believe that the picture is representative of the final version. Anyway, this is only one angle of the phone, and perhaps the most unflattering one, so we can understand the reaction.

Ps4 Pro Update Will Make Games Look Better On Older Tvs

PS4 Pro Update Will Make Games Look Better On Older TVs

Sony's PS4 Pro was clearly designed for the gamer with a 4K TV in mind, but what about those who don't own a 4K TV yet? Obviously this means that they won't be able to fully take advantage of what the PS4 Pro has to offer, although the good news is that it looks like Sony is doing something to address that.

In an announcement on the PlayStation Blog, Sony has revealed that there will be an incoming update for the console that will introduce "supersampling mode". This means that games designed for 4K will downscale to match your TV's resolution, but at the same time offering an image clarity boost.

Updated Mazda6 Wagon To Look Lovely In Geneva

Updated Mazda6 Wagon to look lovely in Geneva

For the 2018 model year, Mazda updated the Mazda6 sedan with some design and mechanical tweaks. It will take the stand for its European debut at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. There, it will be staged alongside the Mazda6 Wagon, which will be getting its own global debut at the Swiss expo.

Unless there's some sort of miracle, we won't be getting the five-door version here in the United States, which is a shame, because it's a beautiful wagon. Customers here — apart from a handful of die-hard fans and, perhaps, the entirety of the American automotive press — prefer something with a bit more elevation to it. Ask a Mazda dealer in Michigan or Arizona for a Mazda6 Wagon, and they'll probably try to sell you a CX-5 instead.

Toro Rosso's New Honda-powered Str13 Would Look Cool In Chrome

Toro Rosso's New Honda-Powered STR13 Would Look Cool In Chrome

The participating teams will start unveiling their new F1 cars for 2018 in the coming weeks and months. But before they do, we have at least one more independent design to show you.

What we have here is a proposal for the forthcoming Toro Rosso STR13, done up by livery designer Sean Bull – complete with halo cockpit protection device, and all decked out in chrome (with some matte black detailing thrown in for contrast).

2020 Toyota Corolla Doesn't Look Like Much Yet In These Spy Photos

2020 Toyota Corolla doesn't look like much yet in these spy photos

The Toyota Corolla is, if you count all the different vehicles sold under that nameplate together, a wildly successful car. The current Corolla is also an excellent commuter, practical and inoffensive, which returns decent economy with simple hardware. That's no backhanded compliment: a great many consumers seek simple, affordable, worry-free transportation and that's the Corolla's jam.

And if you consider the 2020 Toyota Corolla, it should be that sedan's jam too. The big deal is that it'll move to the Toyota New Global Architecture, although we already heard rumors of that and it makes perfect sense. After all, the original Prius' platform underpinned a wide variety of Corolla-sized cars all over the world, up to and including our current one (in revised form). Switching to the TNGA platform already under the Prius, C-HR and 2018 Camry just makes sense.

Dept Stores Look To Rentals, Experience-based Services

Dept stores look to rentals, experience-based services

The Yomiuri ShimbunAmid their growing rivalry with online retailers, big brick-and-mortar outlets such as department stores and fashion buildings are working to become "stores that don't sell things," offering rental or experience-based services to draw in more people.

Remember what we said about the shame of Renault ditching the Lotus/JPS livery? Yeah, we take it back. This looks cooler.

It's Sean Bull's latest project, previewing what the Anglo-French team's upcoming RS18 could – and probably should – look like. And we're smitten.
