OnePlus 5 beta adds the 5T's Face Unlock feature

  OnePlus 5 beta adds the 5T's Face Unlock feature OnePlus really didn't waste any time fulfilling its promise of bringing the 5T's Face Unlock feature to the original 5. As before, Face Unlock isn't strictly secure -- it's not using depth sensors, iris scanning or other methods that reduce the chances of someone fooling the system. This is about convenience more than anything else. OnePlus doesn't pretend otherwise, though, and it's good to see a tentpole feature coming to a not-so-current device.

Smart lock maker Otto suspends operations

  Smart lock maker Otto suspends operations Otto showed the world its digital lock in August. Four months later, the company has suspended operations. The company made the decision just ahead of the holidays, a fact that founder and CEO Sam Jadallah recently made public with a lengthy Medium post now pinned to the top of the startup’s site.

In the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) region, which includes the US, Canada and Mexico, Mercedes sold 400,320 cars, a 1.3% improvement over 2016’s results. Demand in the US was slightly down, at 340,000 cars, but that represented a decline of just 0.9%, which Mercedes says was mostly due to shrinking demand for saloons.

Mercedes’s biggest global sales success came with a growth of 25.9% in China, its biggest market, where it delivered 587,868 cars. That accounted for the majority of sales in the Asia Pacific region, which totalled 875,250 units for a 19.2% sales increase overall.
