If you're a Porsche fan, I'm sure you may have a curiosity about how these revered automobiles are made. I'm in the same boat as you, and I found this neat little video that puts you right on the production line and watch these fine German assembly workers work their magic in putting together the much-talked about 2010 Panamera - Porsche's very first sedan model.

Yesterday I posted up a clip produced by Edmunds.com's Inside Line series that ran down bite-size highlights of a few of the new cars being paraded at the still-in-effect Tokyo Auto Show.

Dynamic Biorhythms provides a tracking tool for monitoring the body's biorhythms. While its layout verges on overload, the program provides some interesting information about yourself.

The only thing that was not clear to us, and therefore kept us skeptical, was what source this biorhythm information comes from. Regardless, entering our birthday and sex revealed an incredible amount of detail. We were able to … Read more
