No segment is currently more important in the auto industry than SUVs.Both compact and mid-size crossover SUVs  account for 35% of all cars and trucks sold in the United States.Honda's CR-V, the best-selling crossover in the United States, has achieved seven straight years of sale gains.Meanwhile, the Toyota RAV4 falls right behind the CR-V in sales — and it's gaining steam.In 2016, Toyota sold 352,169 RAV4 cars — an 11.6% gain from the year prior.The vehicle has been in Toyota's lineup for two decades, but it's really coming into its own with the fourth-generation, rolled out in 2013.I got a chance to drive the RAV4 over the course of a week — here's what it was like: View As:

In a blog post Instagram Co-founder & CEO Kevin Systrom explained that it was part of their goal to make sure that Instagram is a ‘safe environment’ while making sure that users are ‘less likely to have surprising or unwanted experiences in the app.’In addition to the new content blurring the app now comes with two-factor authentication.This extra layer of security means you will now require a code every time you log in to a new device or online.The extra security feature has already been rolled out on many of Facebook’s other apps including WhatsApp so to its addition to Instagram isn’t wholly surprising.To turn the feature on simply go to your profile, tap on the gear icon and you’ll see an option to turn it on.Best Smartphones You Can Buy In 2017

Tesla’s Model 3 will undoubtedly be an interesting and compelling car, but it’s not going to be the world-beater that some Tesla fans might otherwise believe.In an effort to temper such over-sized expectations, Elon Musk this morning published a series of tweets stating that the Model 3 will not introduce features and technologies more advanced than what is currently available on the Model S.In an effort to build some intrigue as well, Musk also released a video showcasing a release candidate of the Model 3 going on its first ever drive.While this may seem like common sense, it was a smart move for Musk to chime in on the matter like he id.For a variety of reasons, much of the speculation surrounding the Model 3 has been amplified to such an extent as to create almost unrealistic expectations around the car.As a prime example, consider this: because the Model 3 that Tesla unveiled last year lacked a traditional instrument cluster, many Tesla enthusiasts began speculating that the shipping Model 3 would feature an advanced HUD that would put the Model S’ dashboard to shame.

Today, the US Senate voted 50-48 to overturn broadband privacy rules that would have required internet service providers get consumer consent before selling their web browsing data to advertisers or other data companies.The rules, which passed in October of last year, govern the collection and selling of private data by ISPs like Verizon, Comcast, or AT Those rules would have required internet providers to ask for permission before selling data about your usage, like web browsing history and location, as well as data about finances, health, app usage, and more.Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz) introduced the overturning measure, who argues that:The FCC’s midnight regulation does nothing to protect consumer privacy.It is unnecessary, confusing and adds yet another innovation-stifling regulation to the internet...My resolution is the first step toward restoring the FTC’s light-touch, consumer-friendly approach.It will not change or lessen existing consumer privacy protections.

The Thync Relax Pro purportedly relieves stress, poor sleep, and anxious thoughts.Los Gatos, Calif.-based Thync is announcing the new “neurostimulation” product (a second generation following a 2015 model), which stimulates your brain through an electronic device that you put on your scalp.High stress levels costs the American economy about $300 billion per year.Stress levels have reached unprecedented levels in the U.S., according to a survey in January by the American Psychological Association, which conducts annual stress polls.Thync Relax Pro consists of a simple-to-use padded pod that sits only on the back of the neck to tap into the body’s natural mechanisms to deliver stress relief through gentle nerve stimulation.It also includes two neurostimulation programs, Thync Deep Relax and Thync Deep Sleep, which are controlled by the user via the Thync Relax Pro app from a smartphone.“There are nerves in back of your neck, connected to two regions of the brain, and they affect your stress and sleep,” said Isy Goldwasser, CEO of Thync, in an interview with VentureBeat.When used together, the app, pod and accompanying electrode pads gently stimulate nerves on the neck that connect directly to areas of the brain which help control stress levels, mood, and sleep quality.“We have been at this for five years,” said Goldwasser.It’s important to get it to people who need it the most, for those who sleep less than five hours a night.”The idea is to proactively enable you to let go of your daily worries and sleep soundly.You can think of it as your “off button,” and it doesn’t involve artificial substances, like Xanax, sleeping pills, or alcohol.“Thync uses low level electrical stimulation to activate specific nerve pathways on the head and neck,” said Sumon Pal, a doctor and Thync’s head of science, in a statement.“These pathways communicate with areas in the brain that help control stress levels, mood and sleep quality.

It's day 23 or thereabouts of Google UK's extremist ad horror, and the search behemoth has now decided it's time to be sorry about it and say things will change.The company's chief business officer was made to write a long blog post while sounding sorry about the grim content advertising nightmare, with Philipp Schindler saying: "...starting today, we’re taking a tougher stance on hateful, offensive and derogatory content.This includes removing ads more effectively from content that is attacking or harassing people based on their race, religion, gender or similar categories."To that end, it's hiring people -- regular, human people, with feelings and eyes -- to help police the thousands of hours of content uploaded to YouTube every day and make sure anything dodgy, or flagged as dodgy, is pulled long before adverts for big brands make their uploaders any money.So can everyone start pumping the money back into its account, please?It's got a self-driving car scheme and some weird internet balloons to pay for with your mum's accidental clicks.

According to the World Health Organization, human error causes more than 90% of traffic accidents across the globe.Some 1.25 million people die in crashes, and 20- to 50-million people are injured each year.Automakers are scrambling to develop cars with advanced driver-assistance systems that are so good they’re “crash-proof,” or fully autonomous vehicles, each safer than the next.But the automakers are somewhat limited by the computational resources on board their vehicles.Now, a startup out of Mountain View, Calif. called DeepScale has raised $3 million in seed funding to help automakers use industry-standard low wattage processors to power more accurate perception.Alongside sensors, mapping, planning and control systems, perception, (sometimes referenced as “computer vision”) enables vehicles to make sense of what’s going on around them in real time.

Den nya surfplattan heter helt enkelt ”iPad” vilket förstärker intrycket av att det är den nya billiga modellen av iPad, medan iPad Pro i två storlekar är proffsmodellerna.Modellen har blivit aningen tjockare (7,5 mm) och tyngre (469-478 g) men är annars i samma storlek som föregångaren Air 2.Den kommer också i samma färger; silver, guld och grå.Den enda egentliga nyheten är att den är moderniserad med en A9-processor istället för A8X som Air 2 hade.Däremot har den fått ett sänkt pris för att hamra in att detta är budgetvalet.Den fås i 32 eller 128 GB och med eller utan 4G, priserna spänner mellan 3 995 kr och 5 495 kr.

On his new, twenty-two-track project, “More Life”—which he is calling not an album or a mixtape but a “playlist,” a nod to the curatorial reach of the tracks’ copious samplings and collaborations—he is an alienated powerhouse coming to terms with all that he’s lost along the path to global domination.“Winning is problematic / People like you more when you working towards something, not when you have it,” he raps on “Lose You,” a rare example of capital-R Rap amid the collection’s breezy, dance-floor-minded mosaic.“If I ever feel like an outsider, it’s usually because I’m not American,” he told DJ Semtex during an interview last month.“That’s when I feel like people are against me.” His habit of co-signing unknown rappers and forever altering their trajectories has transformed, in the public eye, from a gesture of benevolence to something exploitative, vampiric.On “More Life,” which débuted Saturday evening on OVO Sound Radio, his label’s weekly show on Apple Music, Drake has found a respite from his detractors by drawing inspiration from far-flung locales and eras past.He responds to accusations of cultural imperialism not by moving closer to the protective center of the mainstream but by sampling from its furthest fringes, assembling a paste-up board of samples and collaborators from across the world.

At Google, you're famously encouraged to spend some of your time on side projects – and former hardware employee Zee Tan seems to have continued that tradition after leaving the company.A "brain fart" on a quiet Friday afternoon resulted in The Brexit Plan, a paperback listed for sale on Amazon at £6.99.But before you all send a copy to Theresa May, we're sorry to tell you there's still no plan.Zee says he wasn't aware of the bestselling 'Reasons To Vote For Democrats' blank book in the US when he came up with the idea, but finding out it was a bestseller prompted him to actually go ahead and make it.Unsurprisingly, Tan – who has cofounded and sold Codlo since leaving Google – is a Remainer, but "that doesn't matter now," he says."Now that the milk has been properly spilt, I'm a fan of whoever has a actual, real plan to make sure we don't properly muck it up."

Chinese tech powerhouse Huawei's got its sights set on the world.The P10 is its latest flagship product.When I reviewed the Huawei P9 about a year ago, one of the things that caught my attention was how proud Huawei was of its Chinese roots, flaunting that the device was "Made in China" when all other Chinese brands (and American brands, like Ivanka Trump's clothing line or Apple) tries to hide that fact.The most shameless of these may be Shenzhen-based ZTE, which puts "Designed in USA" on the box of its Axon 7 smartphone.The phone keeps the same cool brushed-metal back of the P9, but all the boxy/square-ish corners have been softened dramatically into an iPhone-like body in the P10.The best part about this mode is you can change the focus point post-shot.
