Google tipped in effort to build Android into future cars

Google tipped in effort to build Android into future cars

According to unnamed sources that spoke to Reuters, Google is preparing to take its Android Auto to the next level, and will introduce a version of its software in the future that is built directly into cars. This embedded version of Android will have several perks over the current iteration, including doing away with the need to plug a smartphone into the infotainment center's USB. The platform won't be without its hurdles, however, and its embedded nature could be its undoing.

Rumor: Galaxy S6 will be metal with a curved screen

Rumor: Galaxy S6 will be metal with a curved screen

The last time we saw anything about the Galaxy S6, it was a nearly bezel-less device that seemed far too good to be true. And hey, it was; people quickly discovered the device was a photoshopped pic of a different Samsung device, so we’re back to square one on the rumor/candyland board. A new rumor, though very much an eyebrow-raising one, suggests Samsung is gong aluminum with the Galaxy S6. Also, they’re getting into the curved screen game, if the talk is at all accurate.

Lexus teases new F track car: Is this the GS F?

Lexus teases new F track car: Is this the GS F?

Lexus may not be the first luxury car company you associate with track performance, but Toyota's high-end sibling is aiming to change that with a second "F" branded car to be shown off in Detroit next month. The unnamed "high performance" car will join the RC F coupe in Lexus' line-up, and is being described as "track-ready", something fans of the ill-fated IS F will likely be very excited to hear. As for what the car itself might be, while Lexus is tight-lipped, there's already chatter of a perhaps surprising donor vehicle forming the basis of the new F car, and one itself overdue an update.

The new Acura NSX is coming: Jan 2015 reveal

The new Acura NSX is coming: Jan 2015 reveal

Acura knows what car fans have been waiting for, and it's finally putting us out of our misery, confirming that the new Acura NSX supercar will be unveiled in January 2015. Set to hit roads later in the year, the new NSX will take pride of place on Acura's stand at the North American International Auto Show, complete with not one, not two, but three motors pieced together in the new Sport Hybrid power unit. Aiming to reclaim the "everyday supercar" title the original NSX held so convincingly years ago, the new NSX has so far only been teased - there's a must-see video of the car after the cut - though we're expecting it to stick closely to Acura's 2013 concept.

Nintendo tipped to use Sharp Free Form display in 3DS successor

Last summer we talked for the first time about the Sharp Free Form display tech that allows the manufacturer to make LCD displays in just about any shape you can imagine. The free form screen tech will likely show up in a number of places, such as inside cars where dashboard areas can be oddly shaped. The tech may also show up in next generation portable gaming hardware from Nintendo according to a new rumor.

Microsoft said to be working on “Arcadia” game , app streaming

Prophesied by pundits long ago, game streaming, and consequently game rentals, might be the way we consume and play interactive entertainment in the future. Sony is already doing it with PlayStation Now. NVIDIA has just jumped in with GRID. And now it seems that Microsoft is actively developing something similar, codenamed "Arcadia". That said, this streaming technology might go beyond simply streaming games and could be Microsoft's way to keep Android users from completely ignoring its Windows operating system.

LG rumored to discontinue G Pro line in favor of G series

LG rumored to discontinue G Pro line in favor of G series

Although LG's earning and performance didn't take a big hit, at least compared to its dearest rival Samsung, the Korean company is still girding up its loins and focusing its resources on its big winners. Unfortunately, that usually means letting go of some models, even if they be well-loved previously. In LG's case, it will be the "Pro" line that will be getting the axe, with LG reportedly not interested in a G Pro 3 next year as two of its premium lines start converging in terms of features.

Sony Android TVs to come in February 2015

Android TV, the successor of the somewhat stillborn Google TV, is barely a few months in the market, and yet some true believers are already lining up to take the platform under their wings. One of those is Sony, who courageously announced (or Google announced for them) that its entire HD and 4K Smart TV lineup next year will have Android TV in tow. But what does that exactly mean for the user experience? Some Sony insiders reveals some hints on how Sony's Android TVs will behave when they arrive.

Rumor: ‘new’ 4-inch iPhone on the way

Rumor: ‘new’ 4-inch iPhone on the way

In the latest iPhone refresh, a lot changed. In addition to the screen size uptick, the overall design of the phones changed, bringing a more well-rounded (punny!) form factor, and slipping us away form the squared-off design of iPhones past. Still, one thing remained unanswered: how would Apple treat the smaller iPhones moving forward? The iPhone 5C is near its end of cycle, and the iPhone 5S will likely disappear next year. A new rumor suggests Apple is going to come back strong with a new 4-inch phone to replace them.
