In Consumer Reports' most recent Annual Auto Reliability Survey, the watchdog publication has observed a troubling pair of complaints among vehicle owners and CR subscribers in 2016.Advanced infotainment systems and more fuel-efficient multispeed transmissions are causing problems.Neither issue should surprise anyone.In just about a decade, vehicles have gone from having radios, tape decks, and CD players to having complicated touchscreen infotainment interfaces that manage everything from GPS navigation to audio to smartphone integration.Most automakers develop their own infotainment systems, and some work far better than others.But even with the ones that cause limited trouble, the kinks are still being worked out.At Business Insider, we test out numerous infotainment systems, and while we don't much care for the less user-friendly versions, we don't usually have the vehicles long enough to see a lot of glitches.Every so often, however, we sample one that's a huge pain to make work properly or that freezes up — or is utterly frustrating to negotiate.The more fuel-efficient transmissions are a different story.While 4-and 5-speed automatics used to be common — and were quite reliable — newer 7-, 8-, and 9-speed units have been introduced in recent years.

The long, confusing lifecycle of AMD s beastly Radeon Pro Duo is quietly entering its final days as retailers clear the deck for the forthcoming Radeon Vega graphics cards.The $1,500 MSRP Radeon Pro Duo sits reigns as AMD s graphics champion with not one but two high-end Fiji graphics processors, exotic high-bandwidth memory, and integrated closed-loop water cooling that kept the board running at chilly temperatures.But the timing and messaging around the graphics card just felt wrong from day one.Further reading: The best graphics cards for PC gamingAMD first teased a then-unnamed dual-Fiji graphics card at E3 2015—a decidedly consumer-focused gaming event—alongside the Fury, Fury X, and Radeon Nano.While those gamer-focused cards launched in relatively short order, the Radeon Pro Duo languished all the way until March of last year, when it released with a newfound focus on professional users.

Telecoms regulator Ofcom has hit EE with a fine of £2.7 million for overcharging tens of thousands of customers.The company was found to have overcharged around 40,000 customers for calls to EE's own 150 customer services number in two separate breaches of a fundamental billing rule.Ofcom said the company charged customers £1.20 per minute, instead of the correct 19p per minute, with at least 32,145 customers affected, resulting in a total of £245,700 in extra charges.The regulator also added that EE s "carelessness or negligence" contributed to the billing errors, and that the company had decided not to reimburse the majority of affected customers until Ofcom intervened.EE wrongly decided it couldn t identify the people it overcharged and was proposing to give the extra money to charity, which would have left the affected subscribers out of pocket.Ofcom says customers in this case were overcharged £2,203.33, although EE is said to have taken "prompt action" on this occasion, providing full refunds to those affected.

På tisdagkvällen kom nyheten att 3D-grafikbolaget Simplygon köpts upp av Microsoft.Även om parterna inte vill uppge köpeskillingen kan man kallt räkna med att miljonerna regnar över ägarna.Varför köper då Microsoft en startup som specialiserat sig på 3D-grafik?Svaret har sannolikt att göra med virtuell verklighet.Investeringarna i VR- och AR-teknik har exploderat de senaste åren.Oculus köptes av Facebook 2014 för flera miljarder och samtidigt investerar jättar som Google, Samsung och HTC hundratals miljoner – om inte miljarder – i egna headset.

At CES, AMD launched its first Zen chips for PCs, called Ryzen.Next on deck is the 32-core server chip code-named Naples, which will ship in the coming months.Naples is notable for its high 32-core count, more than Intel's Xeon chips, which have up to 24 cores.A higher core count matters as servers can do more, Forrest Norrod, senior vice president and general manager at AMD, said in a blog entry this week.More cores will add processing power to help servers respond quickly to search requests, recognize images, and process uploaded videos faster.AMD will come out with more Zen-based server chips with lower core counts, said Jim McGregor, principal analyst at Tirias Research.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 may have a reputation for, you know, exploding, but apparently that's not stopping "thousands" of customers of one US carrier from using the twice-recalled smartphone.Verizon provided the figure to Fortune, and while it's a relatively small portion of the largest US carrier's user base, it's still a troubling figure.That's especially true when you consider Verizon issued the Samsung software update intended to kill the Note 7 on January 5.It seems some customers eluded the upgrade, though it's not clear how.Here's what a Verizon spokeswoman had to say on the matter: "In spite of our best efforts, there are still customers using the recalled phones who have not returned or exchanged their Note 7 to the point of purchase.The recalled Note 7s pose a safety risk to our customers and those around them."

according to a new study from Uppsala university.Many are skeptical as to whether it will work to stop the use of nuclear power and fossil fuels for electricity generation, because there can be large variations in the eltillgången.It is to find a good mix of energy sources, " says Jon Olauson, researchers at Uppsala university.In the study, the researchers have investigated how large the energy needs of the nordic countries and what would happen if countries fully relied on the natural resources and renewable energy sources. With exclusively wind-, solar -, water-, wave - and tidal power, we become more dependent on the nature and värderförhållandena.By starting from the current nordic electricity consumption and eliminate the renewable electricity already being produced, the researchers have received a measure of how much more electricity is needed.

Smartwatches aren't just good for tracking your steps and relaying message alerts to your wrist, they can now predict when you're going to be ill.Using all of the sensors integrated into devices such as the Apple Watch or FitBit Blaze, researchers have found that your wrist tech can give you a heads-up on an impending cold or illness.They discovered that elevated heart rate and skin temperature recorded by the wearables can act as an early warning system and let you know when you might want to go see your doctor.The discovery was made by Stanford University School of Medicine geneticist professor, Michael Snyder who, with a team of researchers, analysed almost 2 billion biometric measurements taken from 60 people.Data collected including heart rate, weight, blood oxygen and skin temperature, as well as more generalised metrics such as step count, calorie burn and sleep quality.As your wearable's heart rate sensor can be used to continually track your stats, it's able to create a baseline reading for you.

Cobra s packaging barely hints that this dual-channel system is actually the CDR895D Drive HD model.But look for the box with the two cameras front 1080p/160 degrees, rear 720p/130 degrees behind the plastic window, and you ll know you ve got the right product.This probably is the right product for many users, thanks to its relatively low price and near 360-degree coverage.The lightweight front camera mounts using a smallish suction cup, while the rear camera uses a semi-permanent adhesive mount.The whole deal is connected via a rather elegant y-cable with inline couplers.Figuring out where to run the wires will be the hardest part of the installation hint: under the carpet .

The Obama administration has reportedly introduced new regulations authorising the National Security Agency NSA to share globally intercepted raw data, containing personal information of seemingly innocent Americans, with over a dozen government agencies.The move expands the US government's surveillance powers, providing agencies access to data from intelligence agencies including the Central Intelligence Agency CIA and the Drug Enforcement Agency DEA , according to reports.The data would first go through a "minimisation" process, involving the NSA scrubbing out information deemed irrelevant to the probe, before handing over communications data linked to the specified target.This process was established in efforts to ensure that personal information of seemingly innocent Americans was protected from being widely accessible.However, now, government agencies will be able to access raw data and perform minimisation by themselves.Director of National Intelligence James Clapper announced the changes on 12 January.

Brian Eno invented ambient music, starting with his 1975 album Discreet Music.Its 30-minute title track was generative music.Eno acted as a clockmaker, creating phrases and melodies that were then played through equalizers, echo units, and tape machines, to create a work that had no fixed direction, but that unfolded with an element of chance.Over the years, Eno released a number of recordings of generative works—Thursday Afternoon, Neroli, and others—and each of these albums was, in effect, a small section of a potentially unlimited stream of music.On January 1 of this year, Brian Eno released a new album called Reflection, which repeats this technique.I wanted also that this music would unfold differently all the time - like sitting by a river : it s always the same river, but it s always changing.
