Redefining a Computer Crash test 1-1

There are more and more stories concerning new automobile technology. President Obama even recently “test drove” new vehicle-to-vehicle communication technology. He wasn’t on the road or even in a real car but he virtually tested some technology of the future and gave it his seal of approval. Autonomous vehicles are also hot topics and are seen as an inevitable advancement in personal travel.

Walking On Sunshine, Driving on... Tomatoes? test 1-1

I spent two years in a small town in Germany in the mid-80s and I learned a few things. For example, when you order French fries they come with mayonnaise, not ketchup. Eventually I found out that German cooks are offended if you ask for ketchup for anything. They believe this condiment covers up rather than enhancing the flavor of food, and a diner who asks for it is telling the host that their food tastes bad.

Uhm... Rolls Royce to Develop Plug-in Hybrid test 1-1

If you can afford to buy a Rolls Royce, then you’re not going to be concerned about the gas mileage. You probably own an oil well, or a small country, and you need a suitable conveyance for your massive ego. Obviously, the traditional Rolls customer doesn’t want or need a plug-in hybrid.

Ron Dennis Returns as CEO of McLaren F1

Ron Dennis Returns as CEO of McLaren F1 test 1-1

For those of us who are fans of the McLaren Formula 1 team, this past season was an exercise in what marketing types would call “managing expectations.”  2013 was McLaren’s first season without a win since 2006 and the first in almost 30 years without a podium. For a team whose motto is “Win at everything we do,” that’s a tough row to hoe. Reasons and explanations (though never excuses) abound but, the fact of the matter is that, McLaren as it stood simply wasn’t good enough. Despite having initial input on the 2013 car (the MP4-28), chief designer Paddy Lowe was poached by Mercedes  early in the season, and the already fundamentally-flawed car clearly suffered from a lack of consistent, effective development as a result.

GM to Buy Tesla? test 1-1

With all the recent hoopla over Tesla’s Model S (if you haven’t heard, Google it) things could be looking up for the electric car company. The share prices dropped 20% since September when all the trouble began and investors weren’t too optimistic. The National Highway Safety Administration didn’t budge on its 5-star rating for the Model S and the faith of the government helped calm the waters. Now General Motors is rumored to be interested in buying the luxury electric vehicle company.

Ford Banking on Aluminum for F-150 test 1-1

Ford began making its iconic F-150 series way back in the late 40’s. It has been the best-selling truck in America for 37 years and Ford’s best-selling vehicle overall for 32 years. The company counts on this product for strong sales and profit and buyers count on it for handling tough jobs dependably. Ford has come up with an idea to make it even better. With the recent focus on fuel economy and the new standards associated with it, automakers are getting more creative. When your top vehicle is heavy truck creativity must be stretched to the limit.

On December 5th, the world got its first official peek of the model when Ford finally released some information about what you can expect.

New Idea to Control Drunk Drivers test 1-1

Did you know that between 2006 and 2011 the number of traffic fatalities involving alcohol declined consistently? Were we more responsible? Were we not driving drunk? Or were we just lucky? We may never know but the trend is over. Intoxicated drivers killed more 4.6% more people in 2012 than in 2011. And it appears the numbers will continue to rise.
