I'm surprised by the one that won because I think it's one of the worst entrants. It's trying too hard to be different and comes off as a bit cheesy. And I don't know much about land windsurfing, but I've never seen anyone do it on anything other than beaches or open fields. I'm pretty sure carving a tight, winding… » 10/31/14 9:49am Today 9:49am

The Solara fits into that weird class the Japanese invented when they turned family sedans into coupes. They're cars for people who want sportiness without the excitement. Granted, Honda did a bit more with their version, but Accord Coupe paled in comparison to the Integra and Civic Si. Toyota didn't even try with the… » 10/30/14 1:11pm Yesterday 1:11pm

Given Apple's history I expect a lot of these issues won't get resolved until the next version, if at all. I've had various crashes and total lockups with my year-old MacBook and a persistent problem where the keyboard and track pad becomes completely unresponsive. These issues have been brought up numerous times in… » 10/30/14 12:56pm Yesterday 12:56pm

For $300 you can get an actual bike, training wheels, padding and a helmet and still have over $100 in your pocket. Not only that, but you'll have a bicycle that can be ridden for the year or two instead of being stuck with a worthless tricycle within a couple of months. » 10/30/14 12:36pm Yesterday 12:36pm

You need to use Windows Phone more, because you'll find the same kind of utility and thoughtful design present throughout. At this point, the platform has two shortcoming. The first continues to be the lack of apps, although that's improved considerably. The second is too many minor variations of Lumia phones and a… » 10/30/14 10:56am Yesterday 10:56am

I'm not a fan of convertibles, but I've always found the coupe to be attractive. Unfortunately, brand dilution has resulted in them not being as special as they once seemed. That and the fact that they're common as dirt now, which makes the price tag a bit shocking. » 10/29/14 2:00pm Wednesday 2:00pm

I personally think it's foolish to love an automaker. More often than not, people infatuated with some company are blinded to the options out there and seem unable to appreciate that someone else could offer something praise-worthy. Also, that kind of loyalty just sets a person up for disappointment because, sooner or… » 10/29/14 10:55am Wednesday 10:55am

I requested an invite a couple of days ago. Although I don't think it's the best strategy I can appreciate why they'd want to make this invite only. They don't want their servers to be overloaded with a massive influx of users. That said, the wording on the site, the way they try to instill a sense of exclusivity is a… » 10/28/14 12:15pm Tuesday 12:15pm

I hate to tell you, but this is old news. People have already extensively experimented with the technique; it also works on grey and colored pieces. However, it's tedious and timing is critical. You can ruin your bricks if you keep them submerged to long. Colored Lego gets washed out and whites might go a bit… » 10/28/14 9:47am Tuesday 9:47am
