    Ford to bring back physical radio controls for frustrated touchscreen users Yay for knobs! I always thought that touchscreens to control heat/radio would be annoying due to getting smudged up quickly and forcing to look away from the road more compared to physical buttons and switches.

    News: Audi is said to be in talks to buy Ducati

    Sounds interesting, VAG is apparently building an empire. Given the fact that their main success formula is to share the same components among various brands, I don't see how can they apply this to a motorcycle maker. Ducati TDI, maybe? :P...

    My Ducati Monster 796

    I got a new job at the end of summer and decided to pull the trigger of something I was dreaming about for the last three years. So here's my Ducati Monster 796 ABS in the lovely pearl white with the traditional red frame. I ended up buying the bike in Austria, it has done 3,200km when I picked...

    NAS (Network attached storage) help

    I'd like to hear some advice on NAS. I'm thinking of getting one for my home network, in which I have a PC laptop, a MacBook Pro (on its way:)), desktop PC, two iPhones and an xbox 360.

    Zonda F Clubsport Roadster totaled in "the most expensive crash in history"

    The Pagani Zonda F Clubsport Roadster just got a bit more exclusive as 1 of the 25 made was totaled recently. The article says that he's a banker, but apparently he is the owner of Gemballa, so more of an investor, and walked away with a bruise. Sad to see the car go though :(...

    Driver puts 100 octane gasoline into 745d, bursts into flames

    This happened in Czech Republic two days ago. A driver (the article didn't mention whether it was a man or a woman) put a "high quality" 100 octane gasoline in a BMW 745d and drove off. After a short while flames underneath the car started to appear, and the firefighters had to lift the car to...

    UK might impose taxes on airlines to discourage people from flying

    Spotted this interesting article this morning, thought I'd share it with you. As a part of 80% cut in emissions by 2050 the UK government might impose taxes (or CO2 emissions tax) on flight tickets to discourage people from flying. How about putting taxes on beef and milk to discourage...

I was curious why my inbox is so big in size, when I don't have that many emails in there. And what I found was that I have SPAM emails everywhere - in sent items (sent from "me" to...

    Project Natal - Xbox's motion sensor thingy

    This has been mentioned a bit in the E3 thread, but it deserves a thread of its own :). The Project Natal is a motion sensor camera for Xbox that was introduced at E3 just a couple of days ago. What do you people think? Would you buy it and more importantly would you use it? I think it's quite...

    DRM-free music, where to get it?

    I am posting this, because the situation is hopeless. Despite the fact that I live in an EU country, most of online music stores (iTunes, eMusic, Wallmart, Amazon, etc.) aren't availalbe here. Only available music store I found so far, is a local one offering only music in DRM-protected wmv...
