What are your thoughts? Be open, be honest and respect differing opinions… Or don’t, I don’t care either way…
This looks like a copy of a recent Corvette and a Nissan GTR in the front half. And a Jaguar F-type, with different lights, in the rear. Aston Martin, please be a little more original. Come up with a “new” car design on your own. It is beautiful, but not original.
After waiting for 50 minutes to talk to someone in the Philippines I was frustrated to say the least. I was told to send the product back, call again (another 50 minutes on hold) to receive my refund. It’s amazing a company can stay in business with treating their customer this poorly. NEVER ORDER from GAME STOP ONLINE…… NEVER!
One of my all time favorites is Don Hertzfeldt’s, ‘Rejected’. Hertzfeldt was hired by the “Family Learning Channel” to create some bumpers for the channel. Apparently over the time he was creating them he began to slip into insanity. Check it out here and don’t forget to share it with your friends:
Several months ago, Porsche CEO Matthias Mueller alluded to the fabled sports car maker’s plans to offer a purely electric car by the end of the decade. Today, on the eve of the Frankfurt Motor Show, the Stuttgart-based automaker gave us a glimpse of what a purely electric Porsche for the masses might look like.
Though Porsche says the concept boasts an entirely new powertrain, it does bear a lot of similar to the one used in last year’s Le Mans-winning 919 plug-in hybrid supercar. As such, the Mission E is powered by two “permanently-excited” synchronous motors (PSM), which together produce over 600 horsepower. Working in tandem, they can reportedly propel the sleek vehicle to 62 mph in less than 3.5 seconds and 200 km/h in under 12 seconds.
Also on tap to transfer all that power to the ground are an all-wheel drive system with Porsche Torque Vectoring, which automatically distributes torque to the individual wheels, and all-wheel steering for more precise handling along the lines of the hellacious 911 GT3.
How far can the Mission E travel on a single charge? Here it seems Porsche has significantly one-upped the competition by opting for an 800-volt drive system, instead of a 400-volt system. The automaker says it will allow the Mission E to travel over 500 km (310 miles) on a single charge, and that the battery can recharge with enough energy for around 400 km more driving range in about the same time one can refill a 911—less than 15 minutes. And since the system uses smaller gauge copper cables to transfer power, it also reduces vehicle weight. The 800-volt charge port is located behind the vehicle’s right front fender.
Nokia on Thursday July 11, 2013 introduced a new smartphone, the Lumia 1020, with a powerful 41-megapixel camera in its latest bid to catch up with rivals Samsung Electronics Co Ltd and Apple Inc.
A high-wire performer with Cirque du Soleil was killed after she fell 50 feet during a performance of “KA” at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Acrobat Sarah Guyard, 31, who was an original member of the “KA” cast, fell after a wire suspending her reportedly snapped Saturday night and she died on the way to the hospital. Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberte issued a statement saying he was heartbroken by the death, and performances of the show have been canceled indefinitely.
After three decades, Warner Bros. has successfully resurrected its Superman franchise with Zack Snyder’s darker, more violent take on the marquee superhero. Man of Steel, directed by Snyder and produced by Christopher Nolan, debuted to $125.1 million at the Father’s Day box office to score the top opening of all time for June. That figure includes $12 million grossed Thursday night from special Walmart screenings, putting the actual three-day figure at $113.1 million. Man of Steel opens exactly 30 years after Superman III, the third entry in the wildly popular Christopher Reeve franchise. There was one more title in that series, Superman IV: The Quest for Peace, although it fell flat at the box office in summer 1987.
So get this. There is an email going around about how people can use your camera’s GPS and Metadata to find out exactly where, when and how a picture was taken. This can result in Thieves knowing where you live and what you have in your house. All I can say is this… It is totally true AND it is easy as hell to do. Attached is a picture I took of my odometer turning 100,000 miles, YEAH! My truck is now worth $7,000 less than it was a mile ago!! open http://www.verexif.com and paste in the image url. You will then know what kind of phone I have, where, on a map, exactly it was taken and even the exposure of my camera. kinda cool if you ask me, also kinda freaky! Try it on some of your pictures. Now, Facebook pictures do not work. Facebook actually strips away the MetaData stored in the image file so that they cannot be tracked, thought that was interesting. That may be the one thing they do right when it comes to privacy.
For the price of a well-equipped Nissan Versa, you can have a headliner in your Rolls-Royce that is lit with 3,000 fiber optic doohickeys as a means of enjoying a starlit sky even when the weather is crappy.
Starlight Headliner – $12,350
I’m tired of New Jersey’s “Stronger than the Storm” campaign. Who they trying to kid?
The Zonda Revolucion arrives weighing just 2,358 lbs. and packing 800 hp. That’s 50 more than the already ridiculous Zonda R, making the Revolucion now boast an unfathomable 748 hp per ton. That’s absolute madness. As with everything, when power figures increase and radical technology comes equipped, the price tag tends to inflate. If you want a Zonda Revolucion (and who wouldn’t?) be prepared to drop $2.9 million dollars. Plus tax.
While the U.S. is the only advanced economy that does not guarantee its workers paid vacation, all European Union member countries set a vacation minimum of four weeks or 20 days per year. Several countries require even more than that. France is the most generous, mandating 30 days of paid annual leave, followed by the UK with 28 days, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland with 25, and Germany with 24. Austria and Portugal also both require a combined 35 days (paid vacation and holidays). After the U.S., Japan and Canada require the fewest number of paid vacation days, with 10.
When Apple launched the iPhone in 2007, its icon-based OS and 3.5-inch touchscreen revolutionised the smartphone. Five years on, we’re still waiting for the next big leap forward in mobile design. Perhaps the Samsung Youm will enable the phones of 2014-2015 to make another leap. This OLED display uses thin plastic instead of glass, making the screen pliable, bendable and almost unbreakable.
A company called The Bed Moat, Inc. has developed a monitor called The Bed Moat which can trap bed bugs.
You place four Bed Moats under the legs of your bed, chairs, sofas, etc., and its slippery polished plastic moat prevents the blood sucking critters from crawling back out.
At just $20.00 for a set of four Bed Moats, its a simple and cost-effective way of enacting some control over these pests.
