Nobody has ever felt their breath catch in their throat at the sight of a Toyota Camry, but that hasn t stopped it from becoming the best-selling car in America for the past fifteen years.The big, bold grille – which will be different depending on whether you opt for the LE, XLE, SE, or XSE – is unapologetic and, importantly, far less anonymous than the old version.Crease-lines are sharper and deeper, and the concept of a lower center of gravity – which is indeed lower on this car than the old Camry – is emphasized.Toyota calls it sporty, and even if you re not feeling so generous it s clearly better than the anodyne looks of the car it replaces.New seats get better ergonomics and easier adjustment, while the rear bench has more room than before.There are more soft-touch materials where your fingers fall, and the dashboard looks more designed and less like it was just pieced together from a parts bin.

The other relates to the non-compliance of the national security agencies with their existing data protection obligations under the Data Protection Act 1998 DPA .The consequence of such plans can be illustrated by the case of Marper v UK dealing with the retention of DNA samples by the police.In Marper, the UK s highest Court the House of Lords as it then was came to a unanimous decision with a panel of 5 judges that retention of DNA profiles, on individuals who had been arrested but who had been subsequently acquitted, comprised a lawful interference of private life in terms of Article 8 of the ECHR.Such retention of DNA profiles and related personal data also did not breach Article 8.It is a subsequent use or disclosure that activates the stored personal data and which creates any interference with private life.If the ECHR follows previous judgments, it is likely to find such bulk personal dataset retention unacceptable in terms of Article 8.

Smartwatches are cool if rather geeky gadgets, and they ve yet to really capture the hearts of the general public.But perhaps that s about to change, as Huawei reckons it knows how to make the public full in love with the wrist-worn wearable.TechRadar sat down with Huawei s President of Consumer Strategy, Shao Yang at CES 2017 to find out what the Chinese firm believes will see smartwatches adorn wrists around the world.People usually use them for a few weeks or months and then stop using them altogether.Yang went on to say that the lack of regularly used features and short battery life were hampering the smartwatch s ability to be truly accepted by users.More features, more likely to buy

Apple historians may know that before Cupertino settled on going with iOS as the iPhone s software, it considered adapting the iPod s interface and OS to power the now-iconic smartphone, including the MP3 player s click-wheel.The original prototypes of that software have never been seen before, but frequent leaker Sonny Dickson has managed to get his hands on a selection of screenshots and even video, revealing what was once known as AcornOS.Anyone s who s familiar with the iPod Classic or any of the model came before will recognize the UI seen in the images.The top half of the screen features a list of menus that can be scrolled through, just like on the iPod, while the bottom half is made up of a software-based click-wheel, allowing users to make circular gestures on the display to navigate up and down.Right through the middle are the familiar Menu, repeat/advance, and play/pause buttons, also straight from the iPod.As for the menu options, along with Music and Photos are a number of phone-related sections, including Dial, SMS, and Contacts.

Gartner is projecting annual PC shipments to return to growth in 2018, ending a historic skid that started in 2012, the year Microsoft released Windows 8.Gartner is projecting shipments of laptops, hybrids, and desktops to be around 272 million in 2018, growing from 266 million in 2017.There were a few bright spots in the PC market over the last few years, including the fourth quarter of 2014, when Gartner said shipments grew by 1 percent.The PC shipments will return to growth because of a robust upgrade cycle, said Ranjit Atwal, research director at Gartner.PC shipments will continue to grow into 2019, when Gartner predicts shipments will hit 278 million units.Sleeker devices with better functionality are also attracting buyers, replacing old-school PCs, Atwal said.

This coming week, I'll be driving to Detroit to cover the North American International Auto Show.I did the same thing last year, and once again my route will take me through Lordstown, Ohio — right past the factory where General Motors' Chevy division builds the Cruze, a compact sedan that's among the most successful vehicle GM has ever sold.You can't miss the Cruze pride at Lordstown: There's a gigantic banner of the car on the side of the factory.Since 2010, nearly every Cruze sold in the US or Canada — that's well over a million cars since 2010 — has rolled off the Lordstown assembly line.With sales that could cross 4 million globally in the next year or so, the Cruze is an amazing story for GM, a carmaker that had effectively abandoned the small-car market in the US before the financial crisis.President-elect Donald Trump has made the Cruze and GM his latest Twitter target, threatening GM with a border tax because the automaker thought it might be a good idea to bring a few Mexican-made hatchback versions of the Cruze into the US to see if adding a trim level in the second half of 2016 would enhance the Cruze story and give dealers a vehicle with more SUV-like functionality in a booming SUV market.Trump has no understanding of the modern, global auto industry, and yet he isn't afraid to take to Twitter to show off his ignorance.The fact is that the Cruze is built on a global manufacturing platform and sold worldwide in numerous markets under GM's different regional brands.Interestingly, the auto industry doesn't seem to care what Trump tweets — it quickly figured out that he's using Twitter to bolster his Save American Manufacturing Jobs pledge.Eventually, the markets will also figure this out and stop knocking a percentage point or two off automakers' stock prices every time Trump turns to 140-character brinkmanship.US car companies build cars all over the place, and at time they bring cars into markets from outside those markets.The car I'll be driving to Detroit is a Buick made in China.GM didn't immediately respond to my request for comment, but in a statement to CNBC the auto giant said that they imported and sold only a tiny number of Cruze hatches from Mexico.All Chevrolet Cruze sedans sold in the U.S. are built by GM's assembly plant in Lordstown, Ohio.

One of the beauties of iOS versus other phone operating systems is its relative security and stability versus other phone operating systems.There just aren t a lot of hacks that can harm an iPhone unless it has been jailbroken or hacked by Israeli cyber weapons dealers.But a new exploit will permanently disable the Messages app.So prepare to be wary of any text your arsehole friends and colleagues send your way.This isn t the first killer text for iOS.Earlier this year researchers at Cisco Talos discovered a bug that killed Messages when the device received a malicious TIFF image.

The absolutely stunning photo you see above isn t an explosion from the most recent Star Wars flick, though it could probably pass for one.That huge mess of color, light, and dust is actually a galaxy.But it s not just any galaxy, it s a megamaser, and NASA s aging Hubble Space Telescope recently captured it in all its glory.The galaxy is called IRAS 16399-0937, and while that name might leave something to be desired, the galaxy s excitable personality more than makes up for it.Unlike many galaxies including our own, this little beauty is in a highly energetic state that allows it to amplify specific wavelengths.In the case of a maser, or more specific to IRAS 16399-0937, a megamaser, the wavelengths spilling out from all directions are microwaves.

The surging global population is putting a greater strain on food supplies.The UN estimates that farmers must raise food production by 70 per cent to feed the world by 2050.Yet farmers are limited; they can only plough a single field at a time.But by using autonomous fleets of farming vehicles, however, we might yet address this issue.Unlike the self-driving cars being developed by Google, Tesla, Volvo and other vehicle manufacturers, autonomous tractors don't suffer from the same stipulations or complications.Autonomous cars and trucks have to stick to road laws; vehicles acting in private fields do not.
