Instead of completing a bunch of additional steps, customers will scroll through their apps and click on the business that they wanted to find. Due to downloading crucial data before it is used, apps increase user experience and provide a direct link to your content. No worrying about your search ranking, no hassle of trying to get good service. One click, done. 2017 will result in more businesses using the best app makers to rival websites. Social Selling/Relationship Media The last major marketing trend of 2017 does not focus on new technology, but rather a refinement on something we already have, social media. Most businesses have treated their social media accounts as a free way to advertise to potential customers. Advertising Age seems to believe that this doesnt work nearly as well as anticipated. In a similar vein as content marketing, consumers are too perceptive when it comes to a company trying to sell a product.

Yes, your return will be done fast, but the price of speed could be a missed deduction or credit. If you aren't willing or able to spend extra time to learn all the tax rules and annual tax law changes, then consider consulting a Tax Pro, because no tax software package - regardless of price - has all the answers. Friends call me biased when I say, "everyone should know or use a tax professional to get their taxes done," but I truly believe they should. The Tax Hassle," as I like to call it, backs me up. Tax Hassle, in a nutshell, is the mind-boggling 74,000-plus pages or so of tax rules, new tax laws, correcting of errors/warnings in tax software, and fear of audit. There is so much to miss and one tiny mistake can cost you money and in some cases, cause you to be flagged for an audit. If you still insist upon doing it yourself, then consider using a professional occasionally, just to see if you are missing anything or doing something the wrong way.

Since the arrival of watchOS 2, The Weather Channel is also available as a complication, appearing on some Watch faces as an icon, such as an umbrella when rain is expected. It's free, or you can remove ads for 2.99/$3.99. The Watch Hailo app makes it exceptionally easy to order a cab. You need to set up an account in the iPhone app first, but then the location features on the phone mean the app knows where you are so the cab can find you. This means it takes just one click to order a Hailo which also makes it easy to call one by accident, so thank goodness there's a swift Cancel option using Force Touch. No, pressing the record button on an iPhone isn't a giant hassle, but as a journalist, capturing what's being said - often impromptuly - at a moment's notice is of the utmost importance sometimes. That's why we're a fan of the appropriately named Just Press Record Apple Watch app.

Android has the largest installed base of smartphones around the globe so its no surprise that there are a lot of VPN clients which support the OS. Particularly when you consider that the devices which connect to VPN services are usually mobile ones. Most VPN providers have dedicated Android apps, while a smaller number let you set up their service via manual configuration although, of course, some offerings dont have mobile support at all. How to choose the best VPN for Android There are more than enough VPNs with great Android support. Ultimately, which one you choose might come down to some smaller details or personal preferences. When determining the best VPN for Android, you need to look out for a few things. Obviously, a dedicated Android app helps to make things as hassle-free as possible. Next, it should be user-friendly and yet offer enough options to allow for some tweaking (particularly for more experienced users).

This platform has 600 million profiles from over 100 social networks, and its not opt-in, he said. Marketers arent always going to get Tyra Banks to talk about their product, but there are thousands of people who are just as influential in their respective fields. Marketers can also use the search functions to sort by ranking or relevancy, depending on the type of connection they want to make with an audience. The tool wants to eliminate the hassle of combing through your own spreadsheets and notes on who tweets what by collecting all publicly available info from those networks. If youre a brand new soda company, that dynamically changes who will engage with you, but this tool can help you find exactly who youre looking for, said Wijesinghe. Sure, Procter Gamble can pay someone $20,000 for one tweet, he said, but great, smaller companies can start reaching out and getting momentum from this tool to get people emboldened toward the brand.

That future-proofing means the iPhone 5S is still a decent-value proposition in 2016. M7 There's another cheeky little chip under the hood that sits alongside the A7 main unit: the M7 chip, which is there to make the iPhone 5S a rival to trackers from the likes of Jawbone and Fitbit. It enables the main CPU to snooze while it tracks the motion of the phone, through the accelerometer, gyrometer and compass. This means that it will know when you're jogging or when you're in the car, and can take that information and store it without needing to drain the battery by having the main CPU chugging away. It can even retrofit the data to apps that you download at a later date, meaning any M7-enabled app that uses the new CoreMotion API will be able to give you information on recent training. It will also seamlessly slip from walking to driving navigation on Apple Maps, which is a nifty extra, taking another hassle out of life, and especially useful for keeping drivers safe behind the wheel.

That meant navigating through the 2017 Micra’s features was straightforward and hassle-free. Sat nav Being in Dubrovnik meant we werent able to test our usual routes out on the Micra’s sat-nav system, but the 2017 Micra performed well with the pre-planned test route. Our route was displayed clearly on the car’s main touch screen, and when combined with the auto-zoom function and prompt, clearly audible directions, getting from A to B was a doddle. Image 13 of 22 Nissan says the 2017 Micra has one of the best “screen to road times” in its class, which basically means it’s very easy to look down at the dashboard-mounted touchscreen, and back up at the road. Although this sounds like a stretch, it was actually noticeable. And because it was so easy to switch focus between the road and map, I didnt miss a Virtual Cockpit-style set up as much as I’d expected to.

So, realistically, we are out of the customs union because the Prime Minister wants to be able to cut trade deals around the world and that means being able to change tariffs and rules. This might mean tariffs, admin and EU border hassle for lots of UK goods entering the EU. For sectors that are very reliant on cross-border traffic, like aerospace and cars, we're likely to aim for an agreement which will ease their burden in particular.

My first card was the Chase Sapphire Preferred, and I wanted to use the sign-up bonus to fly first class from Frankfurt to Delhi aboard Lufthansa's flagship A380 . I didn't have enough points to book premium-cabin travel for the whole trip, so I compromised and flew to Frankfurt and back from India on paid economy tickets. I still got the Champagne and caviar treatment for a nice 8 hours. 3. Get creative with your spending. When I opened my first card, the task of spending $4,000 in three months was daunting. There was absolutely no way I could do that on my own just by paying for groceries and restaurant bills. I had to get resourceful. Every time I'd go out to eat with friends, I'd always ask to cover the check and be paid back the next day. After a while, my friends grew to love avoiding the hassle of figuring out how to split the check. We'd just take a picture of the receipt and deal with it when we got home.

It can be hard to understand the panels and the terminology being used, while even installing apps isn't hassle-free. You can install the TwonkyMedia or Plex media servers or set up remote access through WebDAV and an accompanying mobile app but Thecus doesn't make the process easy, and setting up any sync service is even more challenging. This is a powerful NAS capable of handling high-end tasks and workloads, but Thecus needs to sort out the software. This review originally appeared in PC Pro issue 261.

Aadhaar number will be the sixth such option. “There are some teething troubles but we are working on strengthening security,” said Pandey. Making Aadhaar a payment address is only part of the plan. It will also be possible to key in the Aadhaar number at a point-of-sale device and authenticate using biometrics. Pandey said this feature will be more useful for those making payments rather than receiving, such as shoppers. “A pilot is underway at fair price shops in Andhra Pradesh, where shopkeepers are accepting payments from PDS beneficiaries. The results are very encouraging,” Pandey had told ET earlier. The process involving biometrics is complicated and could see failure due to weak fingerprints, biometric reader device malfunctions or even internet connectivity issues. On the other hand, integration with BHIM makes it a relatively hassle-free method. BHIM app for UPI, launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi last month, works on both feature as well as smartphones.

So instead of kicking him in the head, I sprinted to the end of the alley. And I also gave him some advice to, er, the effect that unless he was even dumber than he looked, he would depart the area as quickly as possible. No harm, no foul, right? I was completely unhurt. And so was the mugger, except for a bruise or two. Which was fortunate in its own way because who needs further hassle? The guy might have sued me for fracturing his skull. And I might have broken my toe or something. But what gives with a guy walking around wearing a mask and chain? I already knew the answer, but asked anyway. Cops have become wary of creating racial incidents of their own. A surgical mask can be a gangster thing, or it can be a legitimate if paranoid defense against illness. The four-foot length of stainless steel chain? Which was actually much more threatening to me than the guy's size or even a potential knife? Well, that can be a fashion statement.

In more recent years we've seen a newer method: The full aperture end. Companies like Australia's BentSpoke Brewing Co. are using these huge pull-tab lids: I like the look of these, and I'm assuming the can's lip is far back enough from the edge that you won't cut your lips on the sharp edges. But Australian beer judge Chris Shanahan isn't a fan, calling the cans "a retrograde step in my opinion, reminiscent of the first detachable rip-tops [which led to] discarded tabs from beer and soft drinks [littering] the ground everywhere." I suppose that disposing of a wide lid, especially on a camping trip, is a bit more of a hassle than storing bottlecaps, since the lids are larger and sharper. What do you think a good design solution would be? Perhaps create some way that the lid can somehow be shoved into a cavity in the bottom of the can? I invite Core77 readers to come down to our offices, with a six-pack under each arm, and we can throw some of these back and brainstorm a bit.

Compared with last year's CES and Detroit Auto Show, this year has seen a lot less odd concept vehicles and last mile design. One neat 2017 standout has been the mysterious but fun Ioniq scooter teased by Hyundai at CES. The company's line of Ioniq electric vehicles is plugging along without too much disruption or distinction, but their Project Ioniq scooter aims to add some fun lateral thinking back into the sustainability conversation. As suggested, the Ioniq scooter would work as a last mile accompaniment for commuters, mitigate parking bullshit, and offer an alternative to driving medium distances. It would integrate into the side panel of its compatriot Ioniq car to charge and store, like a blocky co-evolved parasite. It appears to fold and unfold into a smoothly moving adult-friendly tool. And it would ostensibly be easy and light enough to make daily carry not a hassle.

Shopping can be fun but also harrowing, especially in electronics or shoe stores. You can't find help or can't figure out if a specific product is in stock. In the future, the shopping experience should be much better thanks to technology. The store will recognize you, dig into your shopping habits, and guide you in the right direction. If your favorite product is in the store, retailers will make sure you know through messaging. That Minority Report-type technology is still many years away but will be possible with the magic of sensors, cameras, and data analytics. But some retailers have an early start: Some furniture stores are already using virtual reality so buyers can preview how furniture will look in a room.

This one falls under 'essential' rather than 'amazing'. If you've turned on two-step verification on your Google account, chances are it'll regularly ask for a code. You can get this sent to you via SMS, but it's much less hassle to have Google Authenticator instead provide the numbers to type in. Safari's a perfectly decent web browser on the iPhone, but Chrome has a couple of particular advantages. First, the card-like tabbing system (technically unlimited, but Chrome does tend to get a bit crashy if you open too many) is really very nice indeed; secondly, you can send tabs to your iPhone from the desktop version of Chrome. Another image editor, but Photo Editor is a good 'un. The interface is clear, and it contains all the tools you'd expect: filters, enhancements, cropping, and the ability to fire that picture of your frothy coffee/amusing dog/current skyline to Flickr, Tumblr, Facebook or Twitter.
