The 2021 Mazda CX-30 Will Get Turbo Too

The 2021 Mazda CX-30 will get a 2.5-litre inline four cylinder turbocharged engine as an option, the company said Thursday. That’s the same 250-horsepower engine also seen in the CX-9, CX-5, and the Mazda 6, and is probably enough power to turn a few heads in a CX-30. To get…

New Dublin on Screen – a Place of Freedom and Choice

Dublin’s screen history reflects its real-life contradictions – at once the debased urban counterpart to the “real” Ireland of romantic rolling green hills and dramatic seascapes, and the wellspring of literary modernism, rock music and all-night party culture. If one film best captured how Ireland’s capital imagined itself, it was…

RIP Nintendo 3DS

One of Nintendo’s most beloved handheld consoles, the 3DS, has been discontinued. Nintendo confirmed in a statement today to Polygon that “manufacturing of the Nintendo 3DS family of systems has ended.” The announcement comes a little over a year after Nintendo said the Switch Lite wasn’t going to replace the…

Parents Agree: Don’t Give Your Kids an Apple Watch

The easiest way to sell something is to tell people it will help them not die or get hurt. This is definitely true when it comes to the Apple Watch, a product whose — arguably excellent — marketing message is, “wear this and you might survive a heart attack.”

An RTX 3080 Graphics Card Just Sold on Ebay for $96,000

The RTX 3080 is already sold out everywhere, and as soon as something sells out people like to then resell it, which means there are plenty of auctions on Ebay. But who on earth just bought the Nvidia Geforce RTX 3080 for $96,000. What the fuck?! $96,ooo?! Who would buy…

Intel’s 11th-Gen Processor With Iris Xe Graphics Is Really That Good

Intel’s Tiger Lake could be the leap intergrated graphics and processing power Intel’s needed for the last half-decade. My immediate thought when Intel announced its long-awaited Tiger Lake 11th-gen mobile processors earlier this month was, “Of all the times for Apple to move to its own CPU.” The claimed performance…

Let’s Dig Into The Design Of The New Nissan Z Proto

Nissan finally pulled out of its torpor and did something exciting that didn’t involve smuggling a disgraced CEO in a suitcase: they finally showed a new Z car. If Nissan still has an iconic car in its stable, it has to be the Z, which has been around in various…

Why I’ve Fallen In Love With The Third-Generation Toyota MR2

Among small convertible sports cars, it’s usually the Mazda Miata, Honda S2000, and even the first-gen Audi TT that tend to get all the love. Cast aside like an automotive reject, though, is the third-generation Toyota MR2 Spyder, and — after having driven one for a month — I’ve decided…

Making A Moke Might Melt Your Misery

The tiny British jeep/golf cart thing you might have seen cruising around beach towns and island communities is called a Moke. It’s a low-speed multi-terrain getaround vehicle that came out in the 1960s and, I guess, “is back” according to a press release. More pressingly: The online configurator is fun….

These Prototypes Of The Renault Rodéo Are Fascinating Industrial Design

Our pals over at Car Design Archives have uncovered another absolute treasure cache — pictures of prototypes of the Renault Rodéo, the fun car-version of the Renault 4, much like what the Volkswagen Thing was to the Beetle, or the Citroën Mehari was to the 2CV, or Austin Moke was…

The Sony PS5 Will Launch November 12 and Start at $600
