May 31st 2009 12:43PM Exactly! If you can't have some wheel-spinning fun while charging off the line, what is the point of 400+ hp?!I think the traction control is there to keep you from melting the tires, or getting sideways during your redline launch and losing control.
May 31st 2009 12:38PM What's wrong with a little extra wheel spin, in the spirit of fun? Who cares if 0-60 is 4.5 vs. 4.3 seconds -- the point is to show off your muscle car while cruising around town. Impress your friends, impress the girls. That's what muscle cars are about!Find me a Beach Boys song that talks about traction control. No way... try this:"I get pushed out of shape and it's hard to steer... When I get rubber in all four gears"Now that's the lifestyle I'm talking about!I hope GM never kills the Corvette.

May 22nd 2009 1:13AM A note to Sean Cooper, the author: Why do you refer to the 4 buttons as "softkeys"? Softkeys are buttons whose purpose changes under control of the software. The 4 buttons at the bottom (Call, End, Menu, Escape) are HARDKEYS. They have 1 purpose at all times.If you don't believe me, read the Wikipedia entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soft_key
May 20th 2009 2:37AM Our engineering team did a joint project with a team in Japan. We spoke no Japanese, they spoke a small amount of English.This would have been VERY useful.Of course the automatic translations are sometimes more funny than useful.
May 12th 2009 3:12AM Maybe if we just slander a make of car... I seem to encounter more rude BMW/Mercedes/Lexus drivers than any other make. Part of the rich and famous lifestyle?
May 11th 2009 12:40AM They need to add a field for vehicle make -- I bet 75% of the rude motorists are driving BMWs, Mercedes, and Lexus. (all silver)Also a checkbox for "talking on cell phone at time of infraction?"
Apr 6th 2009 12:13AM This article left me confused. Can anyone summarize?The Insight is $19k and the Prius is $20.5k? So what's the news here -- people were expecting the Insight to be more than $1.5k less than the Prius? And it isn't? Yawn.
Mar 22nd 2009 11:52PM My thoughts exactly. Obviously they're not feeling enough pain to make them try Firefox, so ignore them.
Mar 7th 2009 10:27PM I'm also not getting automatic underlining of the entire hyperlink... could be hard to click. Seems like a half-baked idea... please fix and try again.
Save your tabs and Panorama tab groups in Firefox 4
