Oprah's Employees Vacation In Style (Luxist)

Jun 25th 2009 11:50AM ...And ten bucks says the IRS will count this as a taxable benefit. Fun times we live in, eh?

Ariel Atom 500: Supercar Performance, Supercar Price (Luxist)

Jun 15th 2009 5:59PM Except, of course, that the Atom has no top end, and that 0-60 time is about the same that you'll see on the already-overpriced 300HP version. This new engine was designed around the idea of simply putting two Hayabusa motorcycle engines together which individually cost about $4K retail, so it's hard to understand where the quoted $50K price comes from. The total price for this thing is simply unjustified. It's sad, too, they're interesting, capable track toys, but not for the coin they're asking.

Times Are Good For The Private Jet Repo Man (Luxist)

Jun 7th 2009 11:24PM I always get a laugh out of Luxist running class-envy pieces.

What's Gmail's "Magic Inbox?" (Download Squad)

May 22nd 2009 9:30AM Google needs to spend a lot more timing finishing what they have and less time dreaming up marginal features. The GMail API is simply awful, full of bugs and holes, missing decent documentation, inconsistent across the supported platforms, references a litany of incomplete or totally missing features, etc.

It would also be nice if at least one developer at Google actually communicated with companies instead of just "friends"... Google's handling of a non-person contact is embarrassingly awful, made worse now because that ridiculous oversight is carried over into Android.

Strokes Guitarist Puts His NYC Apartment Back On The Market (Luxist)

May 20th 2009 8:37AM A million bucks doesn't go far in NYC, does it? That looks like a mildly upscale college student apartment in most states.

Google Android now has a barcode scanner (Download Squad)

May 20th 2009 7:50AM I just wish they'd put more effort into making the Android browser suck less.

Google rolls out search filter options (Download Squad)

May 13th 2009 11:59AM I've been wishing I could filter out sites for many years...

Toro Tractor Concept takes Lamborghini Back to its Roots (Luxist)

May 13th 2009 11:57AM Newsflash: Lamborghini never stopped making tractors.

Sometimes I wish Luxist would just stop trying to report anything car-related. And I always wish you'd avoid these ridiculous "concepts"... 3D software is cheap and everywhere, and some kid sketching up some far-fetched fantasy ride is neither luxe nor especially interesting, sorry.

Windosill, an elaborate toy puzzle - Time Waster (Download Squad)

May 7th 2009 7:42PM It's a Flash based game that requires me to download an executable? What?

Stauer Watches for Men - A Small Splurge (Luxist)

Apr 21st 2009 2:36PM I was interested in the Dashtronic awhile back until I read a review claiming the lettering is a decal, not engraved as it appears to be in the advertising photos.
