Lately, carmakers seems to be operating on the assumption that the more information that can be packed into an instrument panel, the better. 10 years ago this began benignly with a small monochrome screen set between the speedometer and tach. Lately, this metastasized into a multicolor screen taking over the… »
Attention teenage car enthusiasts: Do not let your parents see this terrible review for anti-hooning devices! »
Ok, I know I'm a guy, and I know this is a guy's locker room. I, however, don't want to see your schlong thank-you-very-much! It's always the really fat guys too. (I hope I don't offend any fat men who like to walk in the locker room naked) In other news I saw a Non-Riced Civic Del-Sol that still had the dealer… »
Fuck the X6. Fuck the 3 and 5 series GT. Fuck the ZDX. Fuck the Accord CrossTour. Fuck the Murano CrossCabriolet. Fuck the GLA class. »
- At work, talking about future of unmanned aircraft.
- Unmanned is misnomer; not everyone understands people fly these things.
- With one of those people; a researcher developing new UAVs
- Ask him what his post-implementation safety management system is.
- Ask him how he's going to keep his airplanes from crashing.
- Looks at… »
Morning commute. 4 lane interstate, (HOV, plus 3 more lanes), speed limit 75. I'm in the right lane going 85 to keep with the flow. Of course people are passing on the left because that's what you do. I guarantee a couple of folks in the first lane are in triple digits. This doesn't happen when the road is empty… »
Good Morning Oppo, I know some people know kind of know who I am, but anyway I am M-Powwerr, and I suppose I am the future of car culture. Being 15, I've seen the classics and the modern cars and I can tell you, I would much rather DD a BMW Bavaria with no A/C then a Fully Loaded Avalon. Not to say there aren't… »
First they came for the Jalopnik Fantasy Garage, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a garage.
Then they came for the Official Car Pundit Drinking Game, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a car pundit.
Then they came for Motorweek Theater, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not John Davis.
Then they came… »
Does that mean I should start growing mine back out or should I just stick with the stubble and avoid the Joe Dirt look? »
This game is fucking rediculous. It is literally the most frustrating game I have ever played. Yes, literally. Fucking retarded. Horrible controls, AI is way too powerful, and what the fuck is with the awful collision detection and randomly falling off things to your death? Worst game I have played in a long time. I… »
There's been plenty of buzz lately about the latest
wankfests technological masterpieces being released by McLaren, Porsche, and Ferrari. But for 99% of us, these cars are completely irrelevant. So why do we give a shit? »
...read that Jezebel article, or the Kotaku article, or Gawker, or Deadspin, or Lifhacker, or the iO9 piece. I read it on purpose, because it's OK to want to read something different, strange, or uncomfortable. Because even if you don't understand everything, or agree with the point of view, or maybe even feel a… »
This is the greatest weekend in autoracing, highlighted by the biggest Formula 1 event of the year. And people are chosing to turn away because of how it sounds. »
We don't need tobacco to sponsor cars; we'll soon have marijuana! The same lobbyists and politicians that argue that it's relatively safe can't argue that it's too dangerous to advertise. »
I can't help but notice that because of the recent weather update, you did not act accordingly to good faith for everyone who wanted to demo ride your bikes without problem. So, without further ado, I leave you with choice words. »
Let's get one thing clear before we start: Cars are my obsession. They aren't just a method of a-to-b transportation, or whatever the general population seems to think. I would rather be driving a low-slung sports coupe on a twisty mountain road than doing nearly anything else on Earth, save for doing that while… »
