On Wednesday, we had a snippet of Jeremy Clarkson (of BBC's "Top Gear") blazing through the Swiss Alps in a Maserati GT. This clip is a part of his "Thriller" DVD, in which Jeremy tries to find the ultimate thriller automobile. Clarkson seemed underwhelmed by the Maserati but what else did he find during his search for the true king of thrill rides? Well, Jeremy stumbled upon this Porsche 944 Turbo, a pretty cool car in its own right. But this particular Porsche has a little something extra that makes it even more righteous: this … Read more
In Tuesday's blog post, we got a closer look at the supposed ultimate lady thriller automobile, the Maserati Quattroporte, and I figured since we're on the subject, why not go for a thrill ride in a Maserati Gran Turismo? Climb in and let's go for a spin with Jeremy Clarkson of BBC's "Top Gear" fame--and away we go!
This clip comes courtesy of an excerpt from Jeremy Clarkson's Thriller series where he pushes all kinds of fine automobiles such as the Alfa Romeo 8C, the Mercedes SLR McLaren 722 GT, and in this … Read more
Welcome back again! We're here, still. Tell your friends. Anyway, this week we finally give our final thoughts on Facebook...Final.

New drinking game: Take a sip every time Dong says "Facebook" in this ep.
Luggage-maker Samsonite is releasing a new line of bags this summer seemingly aimed at on-the-go green techies.
The bags will incorporate solar panels from Ascent Solar, the same company that provides flexible thin-film photovoltaic modules for Bye Aerspaces' solar-powered surveillance drone, the Silent Sentinel.
The light-weight CIGS (copper indium gallium diselenide) modules to be used in the Samsonite products will produce enough electricity to recharge small mobile devices like cell phones, GPS navigators, and media players, according to Ascent Solar.
While this is the first major luggage brand to begin offering solar products in earnest, it isn't the first. … Read more

I had a few ideas about how to end this week's look at the Toyota Prius. I could have continued presenting videos on the many neat features that Toyota is pioneering with the Prius. Usually on Fridays, I like to bring something a little more entertaining to the table, so I decided against that approach and came up with a video that I didn't know existed.
Most media reports praise the Prius and tend to proclaim Toyota's hybrid car flag-bearer as the most eco-friendly and economical car that money can buy. But Jeremy Clarkson, star of the … Read more
It used to be just 3D TVs, Blu-ray players, and video cameras. Now, even arcade machines are jumping on the bandwagon. Konami is showcasing a special Metal Gear arcade this week at Japan's Arcade Operator Union 2010 that merges 3D with head-tracking technologies for motion control.
Players do have to don a pair of 3D glasses with an attached camera to enable these functions, though the game realism is further enhanced with a full-size rifle replica, plus enveloping surround sound. If that's not enough, there's even a built-in mic for some serious multiplayer and squad action.
