Nissan Says Next GT-R Will Be the 'Fastest Super Sports Car in the World'

Even though the next-generation GT-R sounds like it's still a ways away, one Nissan exec is already talking up the R36's supposed capabilities. Speaking to Autocar at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, Nissan's Senior Vice President of Global Design, Alfonso Albaisa, says the company's upcoming Godzilla replacement will be nothing short of a game-changer, going as far as saying it must be "the fastest super sports car in the world."

If you're not careful this force feedback mod 'will almost rip the controller out of your hands'

Maybe you have a new 4K TV for gaming and a nice surround sound system too, but it still feels like there's something missing? You'll notice it the next time you get blown up in a shooter, or crash into a wall in a racer – despite your immaculate setup everywhere else, there just isn't enough rumble. Sure, you could crank up the bass until your whole home shakes, but why not take the direct approach and wire an industrial-strength motor into your controller?

Why next-gen consoles shouldn’t focus on ‘true 4K’

Why next-gen consoles shouldn't focus on 'true 4K'

In the wake of E3, Sony sent over high quality 4K versions of their trailers, allowing us to get a closer, more granular look at how PlayStation 4 Pro is set deliver the next wave of first-party exclusives for owners of ultra HD displays. Technologies like checkerboarding and temporal injection persist and in all cases, the results are impressive.

Fidgitz™ – Thinkfun

Fidgitz™ - Thinkfun

Your goal is to twist and manipulate the puzzle until one side is all blue and the other side is all white. Invented by Bram Cohen of Bittorrent fame, and Oskar van Deventer. I love this puzzle. it is a delight to play with. You solve it and after one move it's gone and getting back to solved seems out of reach.

Facebook will not remove fake news

Facebook says it will not remove fake news from its platform because it does not violate its community standards. The social network is currently running an advertising campaign in the UK that declares "fake news is not our friend".

Instead, it says posts that it deems to be fake news will be "demoted" in the news feed.

Elon Musk said the Model 3 is the last product he'll have to gamble the company's existence on

Tesla CEO Elon Musk said he believes the Model 3 is the last product on which the company will have to bet its livelihood in an interview with Bloomberg. "I believe Model 3 is the last bet-the-company situation," he said. "To the best of my judgment, I do not think we have any future bet-the-company situations. We will still need to work hard and be vigilant and not be complacent because it is very difficult just to survive as a car company. But it will not be the same level of strain as getting to volume production of Model 3."
