It’s hard to speculate why, but one likely reason is that the app required that you submit your full Instagram credentials. While many apps connect two accounts together, like Instagram does with Facebook, so that you can post to multiple networks at once, they never require that you enter a password. Rather, they access the connected app’s API, which allows one app to access another in a safe manner.
The clever people who invented the Trunki kids’ suitcase now have a booster seat that doubles as a back-pack and can be taken on the plane as hand luggage. It costs about £40. While many airlines say they allow you to take larger child seats on the flight, in practice, it’s not so simple because many children’s car seats don’t fit in standard airline seats. Use the website seatguru.com to check the width of plane seats.

Rybrook Warwick has a policy that when a customer leaves, no matter what they have said to someone at the dealership, that staff member has to think about the way the customer may be feeling. It’s a very soft skills-focused approach and is something Birchall wants everyone in the aftersales department to think about in their customer interactions.
Driving BMW On a Run-Flat Tire The feel while driving the BMW X3 xDrive 28i crossover with the deflated run-flat was just what one might expect. Sloppy, pulling to the side of the flat, and pretty apparent something major was up. It would be very hard to ignore this even if the dash wasn’t constantly telling us about the issue. We looked in the owner’s manual, which is the size of three Korans, and in the section under flat tires, it had a note about the 50/50 miles driving, and that was pretty much it. I mainly wanted to know if I should try to re-inflate the tire. I figured that would help, but I wanted to also make sure it would not cause a rupture of the sidewall. I saw a gas station with an air hose and pulled in. I checked the pressure and it was “0.” I pumped it up to 45 psi. Driving off the car felt dramatically better, but still slightly odd. 4 miles later we were again flat. I found a second station with a lousy air hose and put in about 20 psi. Again it felt better than flat.
The character of Jan has been a popular addition to Toyota’s ad campaign. ( Read up on Toyota Jan here. ) In an effort to match their commercials to what their customers wanted to see, the automaker spent about two years surveying consumers and holding focus groups in order to better understand what car shoppers want to see in car commercials. Upon deciding how the ads would play out, Toyota auditioned approximately 500 hopefuls before finding the perfect actor to play the main character, Jan.
That’s exactly what happened to Jim and Lisa McLain, of Lakewood, N.J. “It’s outrageous that someone could just come to your house in broad daylight during the day, load up your cars, take them away, and have them crushed,” Lisa McLain said. The McLains reported both of their cars stolen on Dec. 19 last year. According to Lakewood Police, Rene Reyes, a man who lives just a few miles away called a tow service and convinced the tow operator to pay him cash for the McLains’ 1985 Pontiac Firebird and 1983 Dodge Omni. The tow driver took the vehicles to Blewett’s salvage yard in Howell Township. The vehicles were crushed in a matter of hours. According to Lakewood Detective Sgt. Greg Staffordsmith, only Reyes was charged. “The tow truck company and operator were found not to be involved and cleared of any culpability,” he said. Blewett’s was also cleared of any criminal wrongdoing. “I think that somebody should change the law and make it so a junk yard can’t just take a car and scrap it immediately,” Jim McClain said. According to the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission, a tow company or salvage yard must first obtain a title of ownership before buying a car or truck intended to be scrapped. But the I-Team has discovered some businesses are ignoring the law. Using a hidden camera, the I-Team summoned tow operators to a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee parked in the McLains’ driveway. Most said they could not accept a vehicle without a title. But one tow operator, a company called Andrade Towing, agreed to pay $215 to haul the SUV to Blewett’s. Andrade did not return the I-Team’s calls for comment. The driver, who did not provide his name, did ask to see a driver license and vehicle registration, but state motor vehicle regulations say only a title is considered valid proof of ownership. Elyse Coffey, a spokeswoman for the Motor Vehicle Commission, told the I-Team, “when you take your car to a junk yard to be sold for metal or parts, you have to present your title.” Susan Blewett, the salvage yard owner, said she was aware of the state rules requiring a title in order to scrap a vehicle, but she said flexibility is important. “I know New Jersey says you need to have a title, but we work with our customers when they don’t have one and we do take other proof of ownership,” Blewett said. So how can a company like Blewett’s purchase stolen cars, crush them without a title and get away with it? The state does not license salvage yards, so any civil penalty is left to municipalities that do. Howell Township Manager Jeff Filiatreault said the main purpose of salvage yard licenses is not to penalize businesses that fail to follow state laws. “The whole idea of licensure is so we have control over how many we have in town,” Filiatreault said. “Perhaps we should look at a new ordinance. We check to see that the taxes are done and the zoning and if there have been any complains about housekeeping, but we don’t check with the police to see if there have been complaints about stolen property and possibly we should,” Filiatreault added. With tow operators and salvage yards conducting business in that kind of regulatory gray area, police are concerned cash-for-car scams could proliferate. “Although this type of crime does not happen often in Lakewood, it has happened on several occasions,” Staffordsmith wrote in an email to the I-Team. “It is our experience that unscrupulous tow truck operators and/or individuals who claim to have authority, will ‘surf’ local neighborhoods and apartment complexes looking for vehicles that appear to be abandoned.” After he was indicted by a grand jury, Reyes is now awaiting trial. Attempts to contact Reyes for comment were unsuccessful. Jim McLain isn’t sure where to direct his anger: the man accused of stealing two of his cars, or the salvage yard that accepted them. “It certainly doesn’t seem legal to do what they’re doing," he said. "Anyone could just take any car then and have it crushed and take the scrap money!”
Under the hood are three engine options to choose from – 1.2-litre and 1.5-litre petrol mills producing 80PS/104Nm and 90PS/132Nm respectively; and a 1.4-litre diesel that is good for 68PS and 170Nm. All the three engines are essentially the same options you get in the Liva and are mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. We managed to sample the 1.5 petrol and the 1.4 diesel. We’ve always liked the petrol engine for its peppy and responsive nature and it continues to be so. The diesel seems more drivable in the city though with its better torque spread. On the highway, both engines feel powerful enough. The Etios Cross benefits from the improved sound insulation that featured on the mid-life makeover for the Etios line-up, however, the diesel variant does have audible engine noise in the cabin over 2500rpm. The claimed fuel economy figures for the 1.2 & 1.5 petrol and the 1.4 diesel are 17.71kmpl, 16.78kmpl & 23.59kmpl respectively.
