Functionality will at first be limited to a little over 600 ATMs in San Francisco and the Bay Area, but Bank of America hopes to expand that number to 2,400 machines by the end of May and 5,000 by 2017.Bhat demonstrated during the session with Walgreens loyalty program, Balance Rewards.Users with an existing account can simply tap a button from an SMS message, email, or push notification, or if need be, get one relatively simply — Android Pay auto-populates the name, address, phone number, and email fields of a program s sign-up page.It s, in a nutshell, a collection of simple tools to help retailers and developers create a standardized payments experience across browsers and platforms, which according to Bhan is key to customer retention — Android Pay merchants that have added features like auto-filled checkout fields have seen up to a 25 percent increase in conversions.The Payment Request API dovetails with Google s Android Instant Apps project, a streaming system that allows mobile users to interact with apps without installing them.Finally, Google s added support within Android Pay for third-party payment processors including Stripe, Vantiv, and Braintree that only require developers to write a few lines of code to integrate, according to Bhan.
In an update coming soon, drivers will be able to access all of Android Auto s functions straight from their cellphone in any car.That means people who can t afford a brand new ride or an aftermarket head unit will still be able to use Google Maps, voice controls, and messaging simply by mounting their mobile on the dashboard.Better yet, the system can be managed with OK Google commands, a process known as hotwording.Using Android Auto in a 20-year-old hooptie sounds pretty great, but the app itself is set to acquire a few new features including Waze.Read more: MyHyundai could be the first carmaker-specific Android Auto appFinally, as we reported earlier today, automaker-specific apps are coming to Android Auto.The first of the batch is called MyHyundai you won t believe who makes it , and it adds exclusive functions like Roadside Assistance, monthly vehicle reports, maintenance alerts, and even a Valet Mode.
The right password manager should do more than just lock your passcodes within an encrypted vault in order to minimize your vulnerability against attacks.While such a feature may be handy, this type of password management isn t going to do you any good — in fact, it could even make you more vulnerable, since browsers are often anything but secure.Once you ve set up your master password, LastPass allows you to import all of your saved login credentials — i.e.The embedded password generator also lets you create a range of distinct passwords on the fly, while the simple auto-fill function helps you curate web forms in seconds.Unfortunately, you ll have to dish out a measly $10 if you plan to log into the software more than 10 times — which you likely will — but the subscription lasts an entire year and is much more approachable in price than several other offerings on our list.Its biggest drawback is the lack of a free version, and the limited syncing options available through the one-time-purchase.
Android Auto may be all about burying the car company's infotainment system under a familiar Android UI from your phone, but Hyundai is showing off a new, more seamless integration.In the vehicles with Android Auto that Hyundai has on the market, the only mention of the automaker you'll find is the "Return to Hyundai" button which takes you back to the native UI.That shows your most recent driving score, a figure calculated based on how economical you are, whether you slam on the brakes or slow smoothly, how aggressively you accelerate, and how long you leave the car running idle.That creates a geofenced zone outside of which, if the car is taken, you'll get a push-notification warning on your phone.First of all you need to have a newer version of Android Auto than is currently on the market; that's because the APIs Hyundai is relying upon aren't supported in the existing version.Though the car is connected - it has a built-in LTE modem - and can communicate things like your driving score and maintenance issues with the cloud, the custom menus won't show up in the Android Auto interface unless your phone is plugged in too.
The upcoming Android N release will allow Android to run natively within cars, letting Google put much deeper hooks into the cars it runs on, the company announced Wednesday at its I/O developer conference.It also means that carmakers can incorporate Android directly into instrument clusters.The concept, on a Maserati Ghibli, is also equipped with a 15-inch 4K display and a 720P digital cluster."As they move away from using proprietary systems for infotainment, a big win for them car manufacturers is going to be that the ecosystem that s part of Android will come with that so they don t have to think about, 'How do I go out and make developers write for this proprietary system?'"Of course, it will still be up to individual car companies to decide whether or not to adopt Android, and they will have a lot of flexibility in deciding exactly how they implement it into their vehicles.Even then, we won't be seeing Android N running natively on anything more than a concept anytime soon.
Rockstar Games will be taking the wraps off some new projects soon, according to Take-Two s recent financial report.The publisher mentioned Rockstar in its report, saying that it has exciting future projects that will be revealed soon.Rockstar, of course, is behind some quite popular games, most notably Grand Theft Auto.No one can say for sure at this point, as the unveiling hasn't happened yet.Some are anticipating an announcement for a Red Dead Redemption sequel, but it's anyone's guess at this point.As noted by Gamespot, Take-Two s CFO Lanie Goldstein mentioned that the publisher is anticipating a 75/25 revenue split with 2K and Rockstar for the present fiscal year.
Chaired by President President Park Guen-Hye, the meeting will focus on proposed changes to current laws that will allow pilot programs for drones and driverless cars.Limitations on the exportation of map data created by the South Korean government to other countries means that Google Maps currently lacks many of the functions—such as 3D maps, driving and walking directions, and indoor maps—available to users elsewhere.South Korea approves map data exports only if certain satellite images are edited or obscured for example, blurring army bases or disguising them as forests , even though they are visible for users of Google Maps, Apple Maps, and similar services in other places.Ironically, the Google says the restrictions mean that Google Maps actually has more features in North Korea, including driving directions, than in South Korea.The South Korean government promised to make English-language digital maps available for companies in 2013, but Google said at the time that the new data did not have enough information to ensure that it can provide accurate directions.According to Joongang Daily link via Google Translate , the automaker sells its Sonata sedan with built-in Android Auto in 30 markets, but not in South Korea because the in-car operating system needs full access to Google Maps features.

The 2in1 tablet Chuwi Hi12 is one of the best options among the Cherry Trail tablets especially thanks to the excellent 2160 1440 pixel resolution screen and the useful, but rare 3:2 aspect ratio.But until today one of the lacking features has been the stylus support, well not anymore because the Chuwi HiPen H1 just launched in order to fix that.Chuwi HiPen H1 is an active stylus designed specifically for the use with the Hi12 tablet and on paper it looks really good.Featuring 256 pressure levels software adjusted even 512 levels , aluminum metal body with 1.2mm/1.6mm writing tips, under 2mm precision limit, 30-degree writing angle support and palm supression control technology just does the trick.The pen has two buttons capable of mimicking the mouse buttons and being powered by the dry AAAA battery it can be used for up to 250 hours.The auto sleep function helps to preserve some power so the battery exchange won t be a common occurence.Chuwi HiPen H1 is a pretty handy addition to the Hi12 tablet accessory family and with the official retail price of $29.99 it s also nothing crazy expensive and out of the reach.So for those looking to use the great 12-inch tablet screen fully with some active stylus then this is the way to go.You can get it for example here for even a dollar cheaper.
Not content to simply allow you to respond to your friends posts with text chat or its recently launched Reactions which no one uses anyway , Facebook is devising a way to turn you into an emoji.Here s how it would work, according to the patent: When a user goes to enter a common emoji using its text-activated outline in a comment or message thread, Facebook will identify an image of the user that corresponds to the selected emoji an image of the person smiling in exchange for a smiley emoticon, for example .Facebook s personalized emoji process as illustrated in its patentThe patent will likely rely on Facebook s facial recognition software, which scans tagged photos for biometric data that can help it identify corresponding faces in other images.Despite legal action banning the auto-tagging system in parts of Europe and in Canada, it is still widely used in the U.S. on Facebook, and its Moments app.We re guessing it will be limited to smileys and other emotive face icons that can be customized to fit user images.Seeing as Facebook patented its Reactions feature almost two years prior to its release, we could be in for a bit of a wait before we can run rampant with our very own miniature icons.

Nokia's back, baby!On Wednesday, Microsoft announced plans to sell the Nokia brand for old-fashioned featurephones for a cool $350 million to the Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer Foxconn, best known as the manufacturer of the iPhone.Back in 2014, Microsoft officially ditched the Nokia brand for its smartphones, focusing on its Lumia and Windows Phone products.As a result, the once independent Finnish company's name is now most commonly associated with Snake II, teenagers' first phones circa 2002, and drug dealers.But while Nokia and featurephones have faded from view in the West, they remain a huge market globally.And at the iPod's all-time high, in 2008, 58.3 million units were sold — one-tenth the size of the dumbphone industry in 2015.The featurephone market is even an order of magnitude larger than the global auto market, which shipped 72.4 million vehicles in 2015, according to data compiled by Statista.Amid Apple CEO Tim Cook's visit to India this week, people are raving about the potential the region holds for the smartphone industry's growth.There are a "billion phone sales at stake," Bloomberg wrote.And while there is certainly potential there, the established featurephone market isn't going anywhere anytime soon.Cook acknowledged as much on the California-based company's quarterly earnings call last month, telling analysts: "The smartphones that are working there are low end, primarily because of the network and the economics, so the market potential has not been as great there."So while you might not use a Nokia dumbphone anymore, a hell of a lot of people still do.SEE ALSO: Apple is on a charm offensive in ChinaNOW WATCH: Your smartphone could be causing your face to break outLoading video...
