Ever wanted to play a PlayStation game from your Nintendo Switch? If you do, then you might be interested to learn that there is a small, small possibility that Sony’s PlayStation Remote Play could be arriving on the Switch. This was hinted at in a survey shared by Redditor YouRedditHereFirst.
According to the post, they received an email survey from Sony regarding the Remote Play feature. It asked participants about their thoughts of the feature arriving on non-Sony devices like the Xbox One or the Nintendo Switch, and it also asked them their thoughts on the feature for non-gaming devices like the Apple TV or Android TV.
WASHINGTON — Toyota said on Tuesday it will recall 3.4 million vehicles worldwide because of an electronic defect that can result in air bags not deploying in crashes. The recall, which includes 2.9 million U.S. vehicles, covers 2011-2019 Corolla, 2011-2013 Matrix, 2012-2018 Avalon and 2013-2018 Avalon Hybrid vehicles and is tied to a report of one fatal crash. The vehicles may have an electronic control unit that does not have adequate protection against electrical noise that can occur in crashes, which could lead to incomplete or non-deployment of the air bags. It could also impede the operation of seat-belt pretensioners. In April, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) expanded a probe into 12.3 million potentially defective air bags covering a number of automakers, including the vehicles Toyota is recalling. NHTSA said in April it had identified two frontal crash events, including one fatal crash "involving Toyota products where (electrical overstress) is suspected as the likely cause" of air bags not deploying. Both involved newer Corolla cars. NHTSA said the air bags under investigation were installed in more than 12 million vehicles from 2010 through 2019 sold by Toyota, Fiat Chrysler, Honda, Hyundai, Kia and Mitsubishi. They were equipped with an air bag control unit initially produced by TRW Automotive Holdings Corp, which is now owned by ZF Friedrichshafen. In total, NHTSA said as many as eight deaths could be tied to the issue. Hyundai, Kia and Fiat Chrysler previously issued recalls for more than 2.5 million vehicles with the TRW air bag control units in question that might not deploy in crashes. When it recalled nearly 2 million vehicles for air bag non-deployments in 2016, Fiat Chrysler said it had reports of three deaths and five injuries that might be related to the defect. Hyundai and Kia ultimately recalled more than 1 million vehicles for air bag non-deployment concerns in 2018. Hyundai and Kia in 2018 said they had reports of four deaths and six injuries in North America tied to the issue. Toyota dealers will install a noise filter between the air bag control module and its wire harness if needed. Toyota declined to say how many deaths or injuries have been tied to the defect. Toyota will notify vehicle owners of the recall by mid-March.
Back in the day before smartphones and tablets existed, companies like Nintendo and Sony thrived with handheld consoles like the Nintendo DS and the PS Vita. While Nintendo is continuing to churn out mobile gaming devices like the Switch and Switch Lite, Sony seems to be done with the PS Vita.
However, if you were hoping that maybe Sony was working on a successor to the PS Vita, think again because during an interview with Game Informer, Sony Interactive Entertainment’s President and CEO, Jim Ryan, pretty much confirmed that the PS Vita is no longer a business venture that they are no longer in.

In the digital camera market, there are many players such as Sony, Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Fujifilm, and Panasonic, just to name a few. However, there are some brands that are definitely more popular and preferred than others, and as such, other brands are starting to suffer as their slice of the market pie is getting smaller.
One of those companies is Olympus, who you could credit for kicking off the mirrorless trend, which has since been dominated by the likes of Sony. Unfortunately for Olympus fans and users, it seems that the company’s camera business is doing as well as they’d like, leading to the company’s CEO Yasuo Takeuchi revealing that they might consider selling their camera business off.
When it comes to judging sports, there have been numerous systems developed over the years to help humans come to certain decisions. For example, slow-motion/instant replay camera systems have been created so that certain moments can be viewed again to determine if a play was a foul or if it was legit, and so on.
However, Fujitsu wants to take things to the next level by developing an AI and 3D sensing system that could help judges to score the difficulty in gymnastics routines. This system was jointly developed with the International Gymnastics Federation and will be used alongside the Instant Replay and Control System.
When it comes to paying for your drinks at Starbucks, there are several ways that you can go about doing it besides using cash or your credit card. There is the Starbucks app and Apple Pay, for example. However, it seems that over in Japan, Starbucks has come up with a new and novel way of paying for your drinks through a specially-created pen.
As you can see, the pen doesn’t look particularly special, but it contains the same tech used by the Starbucks card so you can just tap it at any of the Starbucks IC card touchpads and it will register your payment. Essentially it has NFC built into it, but instead of a card, it comes in a pen form.
