Why I Ditched Ubuntu and Switched to Windows 7

While this is a car site, I'm also a nerd. So, in this blog section I decided to post up this little computer related article. Hopefully it'll be useful to someone.

Car Key Hidden Camera With Audio

The car key hidden camera with audio is one of the best examples of covert surveillance equipment. It's small and light enough to be carried just about anywhere and ordinary enough to blend with other stuff in your purse or pocket. Even better, it allows you to record images in secret. Handy and functional, this hidden camera with audio can be an excellent addition to your arsenal of surveillance gadgets. Learn how to use it properly with these tips:

It's as easy as 1-2-shoot.

Buying a Car Alarm System

A car is a very expensive mode of transportation. It usually takes years to own one. For many, it takes many years of hard work to save up and buy a car. Having your own means of transportation is quite a necessity nowadays since commuting to places may be difficult and dangerous, according to home security systems.

Repairing Windshield Cracks Tips

Windshield cracks and blemishes can be troublesome. You can never really guess what is going to happen; they almost always start small and end up spider webbing across the remaining windshield. Some rock blemishes only leave chunk of glass missing. If not treated correctly it can turn into a large crack as well.

Carpet Cleaners For Auto Detailing

Why There Is No Single Machine for Auto Detailing?

Many people ask this question: Why do suppliers not provide a single machine that can be used to clean both the interiors and exteriors surfaces of an automobile? There is a simple reason for this. These two very different types of surfaces require different levels of cleaning power. A pressure washer used on the vehicle's interior would damage upholstery and leave carpets too wet to dry in a reasonable amount of time.

Texting while driving dangers

Texting while driving is a relatively new phenomenon and therefore there is not a lot of data on how many accidents can be attributed to texting while driving. However, some preliminary data has been collected.

Teen Texting While Driving

According to a study done by Nielsen the typical teen sends nearly 80 text messages per day. This equates to sending 2,400 texts per month. What the study does not say is how many texts they are receiving as well.

Never Drink and Drive

It's not a question of whether you are legally intoxicated, it's a question of whether or not it is safe to drive when you have consumed any amount of alcohol. Research shows that impairment begins long before a person reaches the blood alcohol concentration level necessary to be guilty of drunken driving.

The Legal Limit
In all 50 states, the legal limit for drunk driving is a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level of .08. A 120-pound woman can reach a .08 BAC level after only two drinks and a 180-pound man can be at .08 after only four drinks.

Security Alarm Monitoring - How It Works

Home Security alarm monitoring is a phone based communication system, which directly links your home security alarm system to an alarm watching facility. This facility, commonly referred to as a monitoring station, is manned 24 hours a day by fully qualified security guards.

Shots fired at man defending car against thieves

Several people are in police custody after bullets were allegedly fired at a person trying to defend his car against thieves.

Police were called to the 800 block of Redwood Avenue just after 2 a.m. on Thursday for reports of shots fired.

Before the gunshots sounded, Carol Suzansky said she woke up hearing loud voices and looked out to see men trying to steal her neighbour's car by breaking its auto glass. The neighbour caught them before they could steal it and used pepper spray to stop them, she said.

Cell Phones & Driving Auto

When you're driving a car, your eyes are in constant motion—scanning the road for signs, pedestrians, and potential hazards. But if you're talking on a cell phone, watch out: it may give you tunnel vision.

The risk of thinking while driving. I'm Bob Hirshon and this is Science Update.

Ask someone who routinely chats on a cell phone in their car, and they might insist it doesn't affect their driving. But a new study suggests that doing things that require thinking—like talking on a cell phone—could in fact be stealing your attention away from the road.

Electric Cars the Future - Major Automakers Agree

The reason I'm sharing this one is because it seems odd how quickly the hydrogen fuel cell has been forgotten. But not that I'm complaining about that. In the CNN article below you will find the same stuff rehashed over again, but thankfully the fuel cell doesn't feature.

Of course there are the die-hard internal combustion engine loving folks surviving high up in the auto industry, but they will eventually be overturned by sense and reason.

GM emerges from bankruptcy

Now this is a totally expected turn of events. GM is back and to the outside world it is pretty hard to understand what all the fuss was about. Even management seems to be pretty much as you were. Oh well, let's see if they can get things back on track. Good luck to them.
