But Argentines who do buy local will have be able to get full service on certified iPhones, he said. “It’s hard to explain how happy I am,” he said. “I am already receiving the new ones for sale and at the same time getting reservations from clients who still dont know the final price.” Despite the steep price of the iPhone, local phone companies have been wanting to offer the smartphone "for high-end users" who aren't bothered by the expensive cost. Monthly installment plans will also be used by carriers in a bid to make iPhones "more accessible" to a wider group of Argentinians. Before the restriction's lift, iPhones found their way into users' hands in Argentina thanks to "gray market" resellers that imported the devices to sell online. Apple is also expanding into Argentina with a new retail location set to open up in Buenos Aires in 2018 , which will become Apple's first official retail location in the country.

Visually and technically refreshed MPV will likely retain engine line-up that's crowned by a plug-in hybrid The BMW 2 Series Active Tourer will be facelifted in 2018 with visual and technical updates. Photos of a development car spotted testing in Germany show that much of the design tweaks will be focused around the car’s headlights and bumpers. The changes will most likely mirror those recently applied to the BMW 4 Series, which received new LED day running lights and LED indicators. Inside, the 2 Series Active Tourer is expected to receive a similar refresh with the latest version of the iDrive infotainment system, while BMW will add driver assist programmes to the car’s current kit list, which already includes adaptive cruise control (ACC) and parking assist. Next BMW 2 Series spotted testing The front-wheel-drive MPV isnt expected to get any new engines, and this test car is running in 224bhp 225xe M Sport guise, which is the current top of the range plug-in hybrid (PHEV) model.

Less than a year ago, Brazil's national team were stuck in the doldrums. After suffering a 1-0 loss to Peru, albeit after conceding a contentious goal, Dunga 's underperforming squad failed to even get out of their group at the Copa America Centenario in June 2016. It was another disappointing result for the Selecao , who were perhaps still suffering a hangover from a humiliating 7-1 loss to Germany on home soil in the semi-finals of the 2014 World Cup. Fast forward to the present day, however, and Brazil seem to have their swagger back. With Dunga departing after such a disastrous Copa campaign in the United States, the Brazilian Football Confederation turned to former Corinthians coach Tite to steady the ship. The new boss has done more than that, though. He's won all eight of his competitive fixtures since taking charge. The latest success, a 3-0 triumph over Paraguay on Tuesday, saw Brazil become the first nation to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.

I'm told this doesn't mean that the government has given up on negotiating a Free Trade Agreement by October 2018 (even if you struggle to find anyone outside government who thinks that is possible). Whitehall talk is still of an implementation phase of two years or so restricted to customs changes and needing time to get new administrative arrangements in place. But Theresa May's Commons appearance yesterday seemed to open the door to the idea that there could be ECJ jurisdiction over trade in a transition period. Getting a special dispute settlement mechanism up and running in time for March 2019 cannot be managed, EU sources have consistently said. But any ECJ jurisdiction after March 2019 was, not so long ago, thought to be one of the thought crimes for which Sir Ivan Rogers was indicted by the No. 10 star chamber. Now, it seems, as Brexiteers get more relaxed about the irreversibility of Brexit, it's ok.

seem to be pretty far apart on that, and it's very complicated as well. Then we have to agree, and the Prime Minister said to me last night, a comprehensive free trade agreement. Can all that he done by October of 2018 to begin the ratification process? The total processes to make.

Some of his own voters might finally come to their senses when they realize that Trump the Great is waving his magic hand in the air to distract them from seeing the other hand pick their pockets. But on the military side, Trump has, if anything, underbid. Congressional hawks are complaining that Trump is not throwing enough money at the Pentagon. They say that he's only offering a 3 percent increase over what the Obama administration estimated for 2018, that Trump the candidate made even grander promises , that the Pentagon should get at least another $37 billion . If Congress comes back with this figure, it would increase the increase to $91 billion. Trump’s boost alone would then rise to number three on the list of global spenders, after the United States and China. What does Trump want to spend all this extra money on? He wants a 350-ship navy — even though the Navy is already undertaking a 30-year program to raise the number of ships from the current 272 ships to 308.
