So a longish time ago I got all excited about the “Fisker Karma”:http://onward.fiskerautomotive.com/en-us/karma/overview/ and put a $1000 deposit down. Then the car was super late. And the interior was very tight. And the performance wasn’t that outstanding. And I loved […]
I am fortunate to own two very nice cars, a Porsche Cayenne and an Audi S6. They are both great pieces of engineering, they drive well, they are comfortable, I get a great amount of utility out of them. I […]
* “Poor Halo play prompts stabbing threat”:http://blog.seattlepi.com/seattle911/archives/231642.asp. Doesn’t seem unreasonable. I’ve heard campers threatened with worse. * “How Secure Is My Password”:http://howsecureismypassword.net/. No idea how accurate, but fun. 17 thousand years for my typical password. * “Rich on photobooks”:http://www.tongfamily.com/archives/2010/12/photobooks-for-christmas/. I […]
So cruising up I-5 from LA yesterday, in southern Oregon just beyond Grants Pass, and we notice this incredibly acrid smell. 10 seconds later, white smoke is coming out vents. We pull over, pop the hood, and see flames in […]
Looking at choices for an electric for use around our property. Basically I think the choice comes down to these: * “Cunningham”:http://www.cunninghamgolfcar.com/p-225-xrt-850-electric-utility-vehicle.aspx. Lacks a certain spirit, but comes in well under the price of most the others. Basically a golf […]

Marginal Revolution: GM fact of the day. Wow. Market cap 1/3 of bed bath and beyond. Worth 10% of apple’s cash. 96K employees but paying benefits for 1M people. Some of the numbers are a little misleading but still.
* Clickjacking. Pretty ugly form of attack. * Self-powered wireless light switches. Pretty cool, instead of running line voltage to every lightswitch, they harness ambient power and send wireless signals to outlets. Now if you just combine this with… * […]

Here at another racetrack this weekend, this is great reading about the F1 spying scandal last year. The amount of money in racing is phenomenal — and anytime you have that much money sloshing around, nefarious sh$t is going to […]
Bumped into Nick in the pits, driving a car owned by Cantrell Motorsports of Kirkland with a Windows Live sponsorship. Nick was super gracious, let us get a picture in the car, and even offered to take on J as […]
My god what a facility — brand spanking new, huge, a variety of viewing from plain bleachers to delux clubhouse. Great views from all kinds of places. And the pit activity today is fascinating with 3-4 classes of cars all […]
Technology Review: A More Efficient Engine — J told me about this the other day at the Seattle Auto Show, high compression gas engines that don’t need a spark plug at equilibrium. More efficient and less emissions.
