( Fun! )

Gadgetopia’s got some ad content going on right now that’s pretty entertaining; Sprint’s They’ve got a pile of Flash videos with helpful timesaving tips, along with how many days/weeks/years using that tip will save you throughout your life. My favorite is the Turbo Parking. Best part is watching the guys at the food vendor […]

Happy Birthday To Me!

( Fun! )

There is of course an exception in the Tesla Roadster, and other prototypes that have gained some notoriety, like the T-Zero and the WrightSpeed X1 EV, but for the most part […]
