Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga says the country is closely liaising with the United States and South Korea on North Korea's missile launch on Thursday.
Suga told reporters on Friday that Japan's foreign minister had talked over the telephone with his US and South Korean counterparts earlier in the day.
You have heard all about foldable smartphones so it’s time to give rollable smartphones some attention. A new rumor claims that Sony is working on a smartphone that will have a roll-up display. What this would mean, at least in theory, is that the display could be rolled out to offer increased real estate. This is said to be a prototype currently so it’s unclear whether the device will ever make the cut.
Smartphone manufacturers are trying out different things as they look to set the tone for the future of mobile devices. Companies like Samsung and Huawei have already shown their foldable smartphones. It has previously been reported that Sony has a foldable smartphone in the pipeline as well.
There's stronger confirmation that earlier reports of the Toyota 86's demise were premature. Autocar got confirmation from Toyota's European marketing boss that the company is planning a second generation of the 2+2 rear-wheel drive coupe, which is known as the GT86 in Europe, in concert with Subaru.
We presume that holds true for the U.S. as well; Autoblog sought confirmation from Toyota. It jibes with an earlier report in which both automakers refuted a Japanese outlet's assertion that the 86 and the Subaru BRZ would not see successor versions.
Nike launched its new Adapt BB smart sneakers a couple of weeks ago. These self-lacing shoes are cheaper than an earlier iteration from the apparel giant even though $350 is still a lot of money for shoes. It released apps for iOS and Android so that users could lace up the shoes using their phones but it turns out that an update released for the Android app has caused it to no longer work with the Adapt BB.
Owners who are affected by the issue say that neither the left or right shoe pairs with the Nike app. This means that they can no longer use the mobile app to automatically lace up their smart sneakers.
Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga says Japan will step up efforts to coordinate policies with the United States on the abduction of Japanese nationals by North Korea ahead of the second US-North Korea summit.
