Winnipeg Free Press (Newspaper) - May 28, 2015, Winnipeg, Manitoba C M Y K PAGE B6 S & P / T S X TSX VENTURE D O W J O N E S N A S D A Q C A N A D I A N S T O C K S FPMARKETS BANK PROFITS LIFT TSX 15,110.47 + 59.66 + 0.40% 690.62 - 1.34 - 0.19% 18,162.99 + 121.45 + 0.67% 5,106.59 + 73.84 + 1.47% T O R O N T O • The Toronto stock market posted a solid advance Wednesday as the heavily weighted financial sector got a boost from the first round of Canadian bank earnings. After a triple- digit pullback Tuesday, the S& P/ TSX composite index closed up 59.66 points at 15,110.47, after adjusted earnings from both the Bank of Montreal and National Bank surprised on the upside and both raised their quarterly dividend. The energy sector was the biggest drag on the TSX, down 0.73 per cent as light crude oil futures retreated further from the US$ 60- a- barrel mark, down 52 cents at US$ 57.51. Gold slid US$ 1. 30 to US$ 1,185. 90 an ounce. Meanwhile, the loonie lost 0.21 of a U. S. cent to 80.26 cents as the Bank of Canada announced its key interest rate would remain at 0.75 per cent and looked to remain there for some time. Wall Street also bounced back smartly, with the Dow Jones industrial average up 121.45 points at 18,162.99, erasing much of its 190- point decline the previous session. The tech- heavy Nasdaq, meanwhile, shot up a remarkable 73.84 points to a record close of 5,106.59, while the S& P 500 advanced 19.28 points to 2,123.48 and not far off its previous record close of 2,130.82 last Thursday.

SAVERS & INVESTORS REACH WE MORE 74% THE FREE PRESS IN PRINT OR ONLINE EACH WEEK READ D ETROIT — By the end of the year, nearly every major automaker will begin offering Apple’s CarPlay or Google’s Android Auto, two systems that effectively turn a car’s dashboard screen into a smartphone. General Motors made the biggest move so far Wednesday, announcing both systems will be available in seven 2016 Chevrolet models starting in the summer. The Apple system will appear in seven additional Chevy models. Earlier in the week, Hyundai announced the Android system in the Sonata mid- size car. Experts say the move to systems devised in Silicon Valley is an admission by the automakers people favour the way their smartphones work over the automakers’ own touch screens and voice commands, which have been prone to glitches. The in- house systems have cost the car companies millions and dinged their quality ratings. People are familiar with smartphones and have music libraries, podcasts, social- media contacts and other personal items on them, said Tim Bajarin, president of Creative Strategies, a technology research firm in San Jose, Calif. Automakers, he said, have realized most drivers can’t be bothered learning a whole new car- based system. “ We just want familiar. We want our content, our services that we already own on our phone. We just want the car to have the representation of that on demand,” Bajarin said. To get the systems, GM customers will have to purchase a new Chevrolet equipped with the brand’s MyLink touch screens, which are available on many entry- level models. Once people plug into the car’s USB port, the system will convert the screen to resemble the phone. The system will then be able to play a person’s music library, log on to music apps with a touch, send and receive text messages by voice and even call up Apple or Google Maps for navigation. The number of available apps will be limited to avoid driver distraction, GM officials said. Many can be controlled by voice commands, and video won’t be supported by the car system. To work with MyLink, Android phones must have at least the Lollipop 5.0 operating system, while Apple CarPlay requires an iPhone 5 or newer model. GM will provide CarPlay or Android Car for no additional cost. Although this might cause some drivers to shun MyLink, GM believes ultimately giving consumers the choice will help it sell more cars, said Saejin Park, the company’s director of innovation and portfolio planning. Mark Boyadjis, senior analyst for infotainment at IHS Automotive, said the decision doesn’t necessarily mean the death of MyLink, Ford’s Sync and other systems. The automakers’ systems have specific information about the car Apple or Google can’t duplicate — engine diagnostics, heating and air- conditioning controls or even the ability to set up service appointments with dealerships, Boyadjis said. GM officials also noted some car owners might drive in areas without the cellular coverage needed to run the Apple or Google systems. And others prefer not to plug anything in to their cars. Initially both systems will be offered in the 2016 Spark mini- car, Cruze compact, Malibu mid- size car, Camaro and Camaro convertible and the Silverado pickup, both regular and heavy- duty models. If something goes wrong with the system under warranty, Apple and Google would be responsible if the problem originates with their software.
