Subaru's reborn rally team beaten by privateer at season-opening Sno*Drift [w/video] (Autoblog)

Feb 2nd 2011 4:54PM The best part of that rally was the Chevy Caviler sticking with WRXs...


Also the Golf with the dumb Navigator who seemed clueless when their car got a flat feet from the finish line...


The guy waving the flag in the video was the same guy in a 3 hour competition with his fat friend to see how long they could go without their shirts in 12 degree temps. He lost and fat friend won...Also in the above video..


James May explains why he already hates the hosts of Top Gear USA (Autoblog)

Jan 20th 2011 1:45PM I really like Top Gear USA, can we have enough car shows? Can't wait to see season two. Rutledge is a big surprise I'll give you that. I really never got into the UK series.

Glif would be an iPhone 4 stand, tripod mount (TUAW.com)

Dec 1st 2010 10:46AM While I applaud their effort, this product already exists. We sell it at http://www.DigitalTreasures.com and ours even works with any phone including the iPhone 4 in or out of a case. Its called the Grippit! and can be purchased with our tree frog tripod that clings to anything. Even better you can order ours now.

2011 Chevrolet Volt requires... premium gas? (Autoblog)

Jul 28th 2010 6:33PM Plain and simple, you won't be using your gas that often. Think about it how often do you drive outside your fillup window at 40 miles? Gas sitting in your tank looses octane. By putting in a high octane gas you are making it much more likely that your gas engine will start even if your car's engine hasn't kicked over in months.

Yes, the iPhone 4 is broken / No, the iPhone 4 is not broken (Engadget)

Jul 14th 2010 11:06AM Few things.

1. I have a 32 Gig iPhone and I have no problem with reception. Is it possible the reception issues could be isolated to 16 Gig versions? From what I understand due to price most took a 16 Gig instead of the 32 Gig. Also early adopters jumped in on the 32 Gig, because these were the first to hit the shore.

2. I also heard about issues with the mini-sim shorting out against the case when the outer shell is squeezed. Has anyone tried swapping out sim cards to see if it solves the reception issue?

3. To me the proximity sensor malfunctioning in sunlight conditions is a bigger flaw.

5 ways to save money with an iPhone (Download Squad)

Nov 22nd 2009 10:46AM I'd agree those are some dumb reasons. Some good reasons are.

1. Ditch the texting fees by adding textfree

2. Stop buying news papers and get news apps

3. Find AAA discounts which are everywhere with their app

4. Comparison shopping will save you tons with ebay or other shopping apps

5. RedLaser will help you scan the products you may buy and get a better price

6. QIK app installed phones (including jailbroken 3G) do a nice job of capturing video and sending to Youtube or Facebook

7. Accufuel saves on gas

8. Directv app saves you time and helps you utilize you record shows you ordinarily be paying to miss.

9. Pandora or LastFm connected to your car will beat up on sirus for radio

10. Lastly being connected in a way where you can easily (without phone frustration) get info is priceless after all time is money. When you need info the iPhone is there mostly without compromise, it won't crash often, and there will likely be less bugs. It will just work, the Droid may have a nice feature set but ultimately it can do less, less reliably.

All four new Nationwide Series cars tested at Talladega (Autoblog)

Nov 2nd 2009 5:58PM The Impala is a complete joke. Not even close. Why even try anymore, I want stock body lines with a spoiler. Power it by whatever but it has to look stock. I am a Nascar fan and this year I watched two races tops.
