BMW i8 with 2.0L, turbocharged 4-cylinder, 450HP said to be in works

BMW's i8, the incredible-looking plug-in hybrid, is believed to be getting a more powerful sibling in the near future, according to Auto Express. While we shouldn't be expecting anything with the "M" performance badge, the publication's sources say BMW's engineers are eager to show what an "i" can really do with its lightweight carbon fiber body. The main changes are said to be a bigger, more powerful engine, ditching the rear passenger seats, and a slightly more sporty design, possibly with a spoiler.

Now another leak has surfaced.

Apple’s streaming music coming “tomorrow” says Sony Music CEO

Apple’s streaming music coming “tomorrow” says Sony Music CEO

Sony Music's loose-lipped CEO has seemingly confirmed Apple's streaming music service will launch at WWDC 2015 on Monday. Chief executive Doug Morris spoiled the surprise during a session at the Midem Music Industry Festival in Cannes, telling attendees that "it's happening tomorrow" when asked about the well-rumored streaming service. While you might expect Morris to be cautious about Apple further wading into digital music, in fact the exec is eager to see Cupertino get more involved.

Ricoh GR II camera (allegedly) appears in leaked pic

Ricoh GR II camera (allegedly) appears in leaked pic

The next version of the Ricoh GR camera, the aptly named Ricoh GR II, has surfaced ahead of its official launch. An alleged picture of the camera has surfaced in a leak, and if it is the real deal it seems the maker will be offering a second model that looks very similar the first iteration (though there are some subtle differences). It is a PR image, and so assuming it is real, its existence likely points towards a nearing official announcement.

Nikon and Apple tipped in an iOS app effort

There’s been word circulating for a couple months now that Apple and Nikon are working together on some yet-unknown project. Information about it first surfaced back in March, when it was said that Apple had engineers working with Nikon USA on a project at its Cupertino campus.

Apple tipped in last minute music talks ahead of WWDC 2015

Apple’s WWDC 2015 is only days away, and word has it the company is working fast to get deals in place with record labels. This, it is said, is due to the expected new music service Apple will be announcing during the event, which is said to be subscription-based and will be priced at (unofficially speaking) about $10 per month. Sources have cropped up to speak about this, pointing toward stubborn record labels and an effort to get higher-than-typical pieces of the revenues.

Nintendo denies rumored Android plans for “NX”

Nintendo denies rumored Android plans for “NX”

Yesterday rumor surfaced that Nintendo is considering using Android for its upcoming codenamed "NX" console. Such information came from Nikkei -- where it tends to surface -- and as expected Nintendo has cropped up to deny the rumor. Of course, this same pattern has played out before -- Nikkei making a claim and then Nintendo denying it -- and so whether the rumor is true is still anyone's guess. Nintendo says no, the rumor mill disagrees, and ultimately you just shouldn't get your hopes too high.

Apple’s $10 Spotify rival tipped for WWDC 2015

Apple's long-rumored streaming music service will be revealed to rival Spotify at WWDC 2015 next week, insiders claim, priced at $10 per month. The service is believed to initially run alongside, rather than replace, Beats Music, and comprise part - though not all - of the company's digital music catalog along with a selection of radio stations curated by human DJs. Interestingly, Apple is even said to be considering promoting the streaming platform to people who initially wanted to purchase music instead.

No TRON 3, say insider sources

No TRON 3, say insider sources

Now we will never know if Flynn really (still) lives. Barely two months since it seemed almost guaranteed that there will be a third film from the geek favorite TRON franchise, Disney suddenly pulls the rug from under it, at least according to anonymous sources. Just as TRON 3, for lack of a better way to call it, has never really been official, it is now also unofficially dead. And while no definite reason has been handed out, some fingers are being pointed in the direction of Disney's most recent sci-fi flick, Tomorrowland.

Nintendo reportedly considering Android for ‘NX’ console

Nintendo reportedly considering Android for ‘NX’ console

Very little is known about Nintendo's next console, currently codenamed the "NX," and it seems the company plans to keep it that way for a while, as they've already said they won't be revealing anything until sometime in 2016. However, the Japanese business newspaper Nikkei has reported that Nintendo is looking into using Android as the forthcoming system's operating system. This is still pure speculation at this point, and from the sounds of it Nintendo hasn't made a final decision on the matter, however it sounds like it may be part of a new effort to lure developers.
