My Cherokee is about to reach 100,000 and i have to say, I'm torn. I never thought the day would come. My grandfather bought it brand new, his third XJ, and it's been in the family ever since. Third generation. I don't want it to get old, but then again, i want to go the next 900,000 and just keep on going. » 9/25/14 11:06pm 9/25/14 11:06pm

And this is why Googles car is not ready for prime time yet. Even Google can't work out some big kinks in even high budget services. Not slamming them, because that would be impossible. But trusting a completely autonomous and free-roaming system with many lives is currently a bad idea. Give it a few years and lots… » 9/22/14 9:52pm 9/22/14 9:52pm

If only Chrysler would pull its act together and replace the Dakota with something and a Jeep badge. Give it the face of the Renegade (I think that looks pretty god) and saddle it with all of the easter eggs and American Pride the bean counters will allow. And then make a Trailhawk. And through the EcoDiesel in, along… » 9/22/14 6:33pm 9/22/14 6:33pm

Windows Phone is actually a fantastic OS. Imagine taking the hassle-free feeling of iOS and combing it with just the right amount of customizing and the best features of Android, and you have WP. Cortana is stellar. The battery life gains are real. Unfortunately, there are no apps. It's almost alarming. They honestly… » 9/21/14 8:22pm 9/21/14 8:22pm

See, I disagree. Ferrari's incredible marketing brand power is key to competing with the "poster-cars" like Lamborghini, Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Porsche, even Maserati. Sergio is taking the correct approach. "Ferrari" as a brand and as a company is not going to change. Sure, they may add a bit more to their production… » 9/18/14 4:53pm 9/18/14 4:53pm

I don't understand the argument of the RX-7 not selling well because of the badge. The GT-R has a Nissan badge and as much history as the RX-7. The Corvette is a Chevrolet. You could go on and on. You buy an RX-7 because you want an RX-7. Not because you're trying to cross shop with Porsche. Though you could! » 9/09/14 11:53am 9/09/14 11:53am

I have a 2000 Jeep Cherokee and it feels very old school. They hadn't tweaked it much since it's debut in 1984 and it wasn't rife with advanced features upon its debut then. I have no ABS, no traction control, a part-time mechanical 4x4 system, and a 5 speed manual. Of course, it is fuel injected and there is power… » 9/03/14 4:57pm 9/03/14 4:57pm

I'm getting the feeling there is a reliable cycle. Bad Windows, good Windows, bad Windows, good Windows, etc. (95/98 would be good, then ME [bad], XP, Vista, 7, 8, 9). I'm just thinking about the consumer releases and I was a fetus when 95, NT 4 were released so I don't know what public opinion on NT or 2000 was. » 8/29/14 11:43pm 8/29/14 11:43pm
