Why is it turning customers away? The huge surge in new customers has caused the bank to cut its rates so that demand will ease. As well as the cut to its one-year fixed rate account the two-year fixed rate has fallen from 2.1 per cent to 1.7 per cent, the three-year fix is down from 2.2 per cent to 1.9 per cent and the five-year option is now 2.25 per cent rather than 2.4 per cent. The rates are still highly competitivetable topping in some cases – but the hope is by cutting them back slightly there will be fewer new customer applications. So, why an earth would a bank want to put off customers? “We are a start-up business and a responsible bank, so we need to control the flow of money in and out,” a spokesman for Atom Bank said. “Because we’ve had lots of savings customers join us in the past few weeks, we’re reducing our rates to ensure we’re taking a balanced approach.

Earlier in March , Cortana got updated on Android to version 2.5 with one important feature: optional lockscreen integration. This allowed users to swipe from their lockscreen to reveal their personal feed including calendar appointments, news, and contextual information they might need. However, it didn't include the ability to interact with Cortana or ask it questions. With today's update to v2.6, that is now possible. You can ask Cortana questions, set reminders, and more without unlocking your device first.

Last week, Google announced new location sharing features in Google Maps that would allow you to easily share your current position momentarily or indefinitely with select people. The option is the same that we've had in Google+ for a few years , except it would now be in the app that made most sense, Maps. It also follows Google's trend of decoupling options and features from Google+. In the official announcement, Google said the feature would be rolling out "soon" worldwide, but didn't give an exact timeline, and we have yet to see it on our devices regardless of the version of Maps we're running.

Adoption patterns IoT adoption is rapidly gaining traction in many industry sectors, as more transformative technologies and business applications become available. According to the participants, the top five fastest adopting sectors are: Technology, picked by 41% of respondents, then retail, banking and finance, manufacturing, and in fifth place, services; selected by just 22%. Interestingly, the slowest adopters included the healthcare, insurance and pharmaceutical industries, the public sector and finally oil and gas utilities, which were picked by just 10% of respondents. Of course, whilst these stats dont tell the full story, the suggestion is clear that variable patterns of adoption reveal fewer opportunities to apply the current thinking around IoT and integrate this new technology into existing operations. Why is this? First, it’s clear there’s an opportunity for channel IT solution providers to drive this growth, especially in those sectors which have been slower to take up these new, connected opportunities.

, where the gathering was held in 2016. We're still digesting everything Google announced at last year's edition, including Google Assistant, Google Home , the Allo and Duo apps, details on Android Nougat (though it didn't have that name at the time), the Daydream VR platform, Android Wear 2.0 and Android Instant Apps. This year's event looks to be just as exciting, or at least we're led to believe there will be extra pep in Google's step due to how the IO dates and location were revealed; earlier this year, Google came up with an elaborate puzzle for developers to solve to unearth the details. If you're a developer and interested in Google IO 2017 registration, hop over to the Google IO website to begin the sign-up process (note: you must be invited to register). While this "festival" is geared towards developers, it's also relevant for anyone interested in Android, Chrome, phones, tablets, smart home devices, new applications, virtual reality and, among other moonshots, self-driving cars .

However, no engine in the Bavarians' stable offers the combination of power, refinement and cost. I don't know if BMW makes an engine that's as silky-smooth in its power delivery than the B58 and it might even be the best sounding engine to wear a roundel. Its noise is a refined growl that turns into a metallic scream at higher revs, offering the best BMW noise since those old-school engines we've come to love. It's also incredibly flexible, being used in the 2 Series , 3 Series , 5 Series and 7 Series . You don't have to spend near six-figures to get this engine and you don't have to burn through a ton of fuel to go fast in it. It's just an absolutely brilliant all-around engine that works superbly in all of its applications. It's class-leading whether it's in a 2 Series or a 7 Series. That's why it's BMW's best engine. So there you have it, these are the top five BMW engines going into 2017. The article Top Five BMW Engines going into 2017 appeared first on BMW BLOG

iOS 10.3 also beefs up Apple's digital assistant, Siri, adding increased support for checking pending bills on payment apps, scheduling trips via ridesharing apps, and even monitoring fuel, locks, and lights for your car with certain automaker apps. Speaking of which, Apple CarPlay also gets some love from iOS 10.3, primarily shortcuts for accessing recent applications and even curated playlists courtesy of Apple Music. Finally, other additions of note from iOS' newest iteration include the ability to watch rented iTunes movies across multiple devices, 3D Touch and widget support for the Podcast app, and the ability to delete unwanted invites in the Calendar app and mark them as junk.
