Just as Renault has focused plenty of attention on designing and engineering the Megane, it’s done the same with its garages over recent years, as the brand came out on top in our Driver Power 2016 dealer poll, beating premium brands to the top spot. Image 5 of 12 Image 5 of 12 With so much tech operated by the car’s 8.7-inch tablet-style R-Link 2 touchscreen (it’s fitted as standard on Dynamique S Nav models), I thought the dealer handover would be a real test of its service. • Best hatchbacks on sale Thankfully, when I picked the brains of new car sales executive Suliman Razaq about the car, he managed to help me explore what’s on offer and ran me through the functionality that’s packed into the Renault’s infotainment system. Senior staff photographer Pete Gibson experienced a similarly straightforward handover when he ran a Kadjar crossover , and it’s not hard to see why the French firm was rated so highly when it came to the helpfulness and attitude of its staff, as well as the level of technical knowledge they have.

You fill it with '98' when you buy fuel. That's it." The car will have an electric range of 30km (around 18 miles) and will be one of the "most fascinating two-seaters to ever hit the road”, said Moers. Mercedes boss Dieter Zetsche added: "Our aim is for [the Project One] to be the first street legal car with an F1 engine," he said. "Secondly, that it is perceived as the ultimate sports car. We have relatively good indications that this is possible." Formula 1 engine and tech Talking about the F1-derived powertrain, Moers told Autocar: "We have to change something for sure. 3500-4000 revs is not that great for the road." He added: "The red line is over 10,000 even in the street legal car." In fact, Moers has since confirmed that the Project One will be able to rev to 11,000rpm. Moers has previously talked about using the F1 powertrain: "Our F1 engine is far more durable than many people expect, and if you look at the load it must take in an F1 race compared to how it’s likely to be used in a street-legal machine, you can see it’s going to have a lot less work to do.

SINGAPORE: Apple opened its first Southeast Asia store in Singapore on Saturday, drawing hundreds of excited fans to the swanky two-storey site in the city's upmarket shopping district. Located on the affluent Orchard Road, the new shopeasily distinguished by its iconic glass facade – is expected to be one of the most popular Apple stores in the world according to the US tech giant. Merchandise such as the iPhone and MacBook were strategically placed on display across the spacious first floor, while the upper level acted as a classroom for customers to participate in hands-on sessions. Hundreds of shoppers camped out in anticipation of the launch, while more than a thousand thronged the store soon after the doors opened, an AFP reporter observed. First in the queue was Xiang Jiaxin, a twenty-five-year-old Chinese national working in Macau who had queued for more than 12 hours overnight and planned a holiday to Singapore specially to coincide with the opening.

Next Mercedes A-Class to get S-Class tech “The Compact A sedan has typical AMG features so you can expect that from AMG as well,” said Moers. The AMG boss also confirmed the successor to the M133 engine used by today’s 45 models will be assembled on site at AMG. “Future four-cylinder performance engines will also be built [at AMG’s engineering headquarters] in Affalterbach,” said Moers.

All the biggest tech firms in the world are battling for superiority in the field of artificial intelligence, and it seems that Apple's next move will be to fit a dedicated AI processor inside its iPhones and other hardware, adding a serious performance boost to its automated algorithms. Bloomberg's Mark Gurman reports that the chip is known as the Apple Neural Engine, according to an insider "familiar with the matter". Apple itself hasn't mentioned anything about the chip yet, but few people have as good a record at digging up accurate Apple info as Gurman does. Whether the chip will be ready for the iPhone 8 remains to be seen - the insider sources aren't sure - but Apple certainly won't want to get left behind in the AI space, with Qualcomm adding dedicated artificial intelligence components to its own chips, and Google continuing to ramp up its own efforts in machine learning, as we heard at this year's Google I/O .

I'm currently reading Jonathan Taplin's Move Fast and Break Things , which I feel should have the subtitle, Actually, Tech Companies Are Bad And Things Were Better When People Did LSD And There Were No Libertarians.* I was especially amused by Taplin's faux-horror here: Yes, Amazon should really be nicer to the people who steal from it. How thoughtless! (From Jonathan Taplin's "Move Fast and Break Things.") pic.twitter.com/FUH3yeIzD4 Sonny Bunch (@SonnyBunch) May 23, 2017 I mean, if I could do this to people who steal movies or music online, I would totally do it. I'm sure Taplin would too! Name and shame those who steal; it's more efficient than throwing them all in prison and serves as a warning to those similarly inclined. (Though one wonders if it would have any real effect upon online piracy, given its ubiquity and the fact that the Amazon's shaming comes with actual consequences, e.

All that needs to be on for is a few seconds and then someone can put that on to an encrypted private network. If the network is in place, which we often find that it is with these groups, it is very easy to spread that information, under the radar, even if the tech giants are reacting quickly.
