100+ MPG Air Car-Good for your Wallet and the Environment

Posted in Cars, Environmentally Friendly by Danielle on February 24th, 2008.

The Air Car is any environmentally friendly- or monetary conscious- individual’s dream come true. The Air Car can run 100+ Miles for every gallon of gas. How so? It uses compressed air technology. This means that at lower speeds, the Air Car emits only air and no pollutants. At higher speeds, the Air Car uses small amounts of gas and accordingly emits four times less pollutants than the average vehicle. The Air Car can be refilled at home by plugging into a normal power outlet or while it travels at high speeds. Interestingly, the Air Car seats up to 6 people in its tiny body and has 35 cubic ft of trunk room (even though it is small enough to be categorized as a motorcycle in California)! Despite its size, the Air Car is well designed for any accidents- the body is built from fiberglass and the chassis is built from impact-resistant aluminum rods. The Air Car has a 6 cylinder engine, a max speed of 96 miles per hour, and a range of 848 miles.

How long will you have to wait before you can buy an Air Car? Well, you can start pre-ordering in late 2008, and the Air Car will be delivered by late 2009 or early 2010. Even so, at a price of $17,800 for a 6 person vehicle, which doesn’t even include all the savings you’ll get from low gas usage, the Air Car is a real buy! Click here for more information.

Google’s Android is not a Phone

Posted in Google, Phones by Danielle on November 13th, 2007.

Here’s the scoop on the Google phone: right now, Google is releasing a platform called Android that will run on existing mobile devices by mid-2008. This is only a platform, not actually a phone like we had previously hoped. But, Android promises to be open so carriers and manufacturers can customize software. Android also puts huge pressure on Apple to open up the iPhone so that developers can create free programs to run on it.

As Google writes “Android is the first truly open and comprehensive platform for mobile devices. It includes an operating system, user-interface and applications — all of the software to run a mobile phone, but without the proprietary obstacles that have hindered mobile innovation. We have developed Android in cooperation with the Open Handset Alliance, which consists of more than 30 technology and mobile leaders including Motorola, Qualcomm, HTC and T-Mobile. Through deep partnerships with carriers, device manufacturers, developers, and others, we hope to enable an open ecosystem for the mobile world by creating a standard, open mobile software platform. We think the result will ultimately be a better and faster pace for innovation that will give mobile customers unforeseen applications and capabilities.”

Here’s a YouTube video that will help explain the Android platform, if you’re still a bit confused!

Lamborghini Reventon Sure is Shiny

Posted in Cars by Danielle on September 23rd, 2007.

Normally, I’m not that interested by cars. I think of them of the things that get me from Point A to Point B. But, I’ll make an exception for the Lamborghini Reventon. First shown off at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the Reventon is the ultimate Murcielago- complete with a V12 engine, and 20 horse power more than the boring old Murcielago LP640. Priced at $1,000,000, only 20 Reventons have been built. The first man to buy me one can marry me.  Just kidding. Maybe.
