Japan's trade minister Hiroshige Seko says Japan will closely monitor South Korea's move to remove Tokyo from its list of trusted trading partners.
Seoul's announcement on Friday that it will tighten controls on exports to Japan followed Tokyo's decision earlier in the day to strip South Korea of its preferential trade status.

Canon has introduced a small clippable camera called the Ivy Rec. Meant for outdoor use, the camera is built into a keychain carabiner and is roughly the size of a USB drive. It can connect to a mobile device wirelessly through Wi-Fi or Bluetooth and show a live preview. The company is crowdfunding this project through Indiegogo.
There’s a 13 megapixel 1/3-inch CMOS sensor in the Ivy Rec which is capable of recording 1080p video at 60 frames per second. It’s waterproof for up to 30 minutes in up to three feet of water. The empty square space that you see is essentially the viewfinder. There’s also a single dial at the back for switching between the modes.
At E3 2019, Bethesda has revealed their plans to dip their toes into the game streaming market, although not necessarily in the way you might think. The company has announced Orion, which they are calling game streaming technology that is supposed to improve on the overall game streaming experience.
According to Bethesda, “Orion was designed to improve the player experience by mitigating latency and reducing bandwidth requirements. Orion was also created for publishers, streaming providers, and developers to lower their streaming costs and ensure that games perform at the high quality they intended. Orion makes it possible for streamed video games to reach more players in more places without compromising quality.”
BEIJING – Nissan is optimistic about partnering with a combined Renault and Fiat Chrysler (FCA), as long as it can protect the ownership of technology developed over two decades of working with Renault, a senior executive told Reuters.
The executive, who declined to be identified because he is not authorized to speak to the media, said he was cautiously optimistic about the possibility of generating "synergies" by sharing Nissan's autonomous drive know-how, electrification and greenhouse-gas-scrubbing technologies for powertrains.
PARIS — France will seek protection of local jobs and other guarantees in exchange for supporting a merger between carmakers Renault and Fiat Chrysler, its finance minister said on Tuesday, underscoring the challenges facing the plan. Separately, Renault Chairman Jean-Dominique Senard arrived in Japan to discuss the proposed tie-up with the French company's existing partner Nissan — another potential obstacle to the $35 billion-plus merger of equals. Renault and Italian-American rival Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) are in talks to tackle the costs of far-reaching technological and regulatory changes by creating the world's third-biggest automaker. Shares in both companies jumped on Monday on news of a deal that would create an industry No.3 behind Japan's Toyota and Germany's Volkswagen and target 5 billion euros ($5.6 billion) a year in savings. Renault shares were up 1.3 percent by 1030 GMT, extending gains from Monday when the stock had closed up 12 percent. Fiat shares were flat in Milan but the U.S. listed stock was indicated 8 percent higher after a public holiday on Monday. Analysts caution the companies face a challenge to win over powerful stakeholders ranging from the French and Italian governments, to trade unions and Nissan. French finance minister Bruno Le Maire told RTL radio on Tuesday the plan was a good opportunity for both Renault and the European car industry, which has been struggling for years with over-capacity and subdued demand. But he added the French government would seek four guarantees in exchange for backing a deal that would see its 15% stake in Renault reduced to 7.5% of the combined entity.
Spider-man: Far From Home has yet to be released, but it seems that the rumors about the third movie have started to make their rounds. According to a series of tweets by an alleged Marvel insider calling themselves Roger Wardell, the third installment in Marvel’s Spider-Man movies could see Tom Hardy’s Venom character introduced.
If this is true, it would officially mark the introduction of Venom into the MCU. In many ways, it makes sense, given how big a role Venom plays in the history of Spider-Man. It also makes sense financially, with Hardy’s Venom movie raking in over $800 million in sales, despite it being panned by critics.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has reiterated that he wants to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to resolve the abduction issue.

A Mitsubishi dealer told Wards Auto last year that "the most requested model at the brand's U.S. dealer meetings is 'a pickup truck, a pickup truck, a pickup truck.'" This month, Mitsubishi North America's COO told Wards that the carmaker has its eye on getting back to the compact pickup segment in the U.S., but that it will take time. "[We'd] have to have one that's the right fit for Mitsubishi," he said, "for our demographic, and something that's really competitive in the market."
That wasn't the case with the last compact pickup the brand sold here, the Raider. A product of the Daimler-Chrysler alliance with Mitsubishi at the time, the Raider was a rebadged Dodge Dakota. The pickup sputtered through four years of meager sales, being pulled from the market in 2009.
