Levine talks BioShock Infinite's Move functionality, no plans for Wii U (Joystiq)

Jul 13th 2011 11:04PM @Kimchi Kommando He appeared in a Nintendo video for the Wii U, created for the Nintendo conference and the Wii U's reveal. It's not like SpikeTV jumped him with a question about it here, it was a Nintendo video.

So yes, it's quite odd he'd later state there are no plans to support the system.

Video: Dodge Durango catches fire during D.C. Cherry Blossom Parade while on float-pulling duty (Autoblog)

Apr 12th 2011 8:48AM Chrysler shills out in force downvoting anything and everything bringing up the less than stellar history of 'quality'. Gotta love it.

Apr 11th 2011 1:03PM It's not an automatic problem. It's a Chrysler problem.

Review: 2012 Ford Focus Titanium (Autoblog)

Mar 31st 2011 1:15PM The touch screen interface is MyFord[MyLincoln] Touch.

Yes Microsoft automotive is at the heart of these systems but the UI and most of the software is entirely Ford's design, Microsoft has had little input since Sync debuted.

Mar 31st 2011 10:08AM The Fusion is the only car you listed that isn't near the best (or THE best) in it's class.

Watch the price climb a bit when it gets redesigned again.

Review: 2012 Ford Focus Titanium (Autoblog)

Mar 30th 2011 1:35PM The Focus starts at $16 grand IIRC. You don't HAVE to option them up, people can still get 4 wheels and a seat. But I am glad you can have more if you want it.

Japanese repair quake-ravaged road in just six days (Autoblog)

Mar 24th 2011 1:22PM @3rocks They finished one of the bridge repairs in 8 days, yes I give credit that's fast for the US.

But TWO 82-foot sections were damaged, and that 8 days was for only one. The contract for the repair of the other section wasn't even awarded until the same day the first was completed with June 29th being the deadline for completion. 164 feet took up to two months to fix.

This story is about a ~450 foot portion of road being rebuilt in 6 days, I'd say this is still more impressive than one 82 foot bridge in 8 days.

2011 Honda Odyssey recalled over bent windshield wipers (Autoblog)

Mar 18th 2011 2:20PM My wife is one of those people. Every single time I tell her not to use the wipers to clear ice she tells me 'they are made for that'.

**sigh**

Guess she won't learn until we have to replace something.

2011 Honda Odyssey recalled over bent windshield wipers (Autoblog)

Mar 18th 2011 2:17PM Some cars pull the wipers under the top of the hood making lifting them impossible.

GM, I'm looking at you (Grand Prix for instance)
