North American International Auto Show 2014

First post of 2014! Happy New Year!!!
Besides the antics going down at CES. The most exciting thing going on right now is the North American International Auto Show aka The Detroit Auto Show. Detroit is a great city that is both iconic for its automotive industry and the hard nose grit of the culture and people who live there. There was a time when Detroit was one of the beacons of the U.S.A. A place people looked to for inspiration. It still stands as a testament of the ingenuity and never die attitude we Americans seems to display on an everyday basis. It should be interesting to see what is unveiled. I’m looking forward to the FT-1 concept from Toyota and the Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Pics and details of some of the cars that catch my attention will be posted as the days continue. Happy New Year everyone.

XBOX ONE

I can’t say I was truly amazed by the demo put on by Microsoft and its clear the audience they are shooting for isn’t just a gamer. The whole multi-panel snap feature is impressive and I can definitely get down with the TV functionally but I don’t really watch alot of TV so I’m not sure how much I’d really use it. I was hoping we’d see more of how Kinect actually has improved in the gaming aspect. The addition of Skype is pretty cool but I don’t want people annoying me just cause they seem me logged in XBOX. It looks like I will be Invisible alot. The game trailers again didn’t impress me AT ALL! Unless its actual gameplay I don’t care how clean you make the trailer look. Forza again….Yawn. Typical EA lineup….Yawn. I’m hoping things really are as elevated and advanced as they make it out to be. I don’t see the A.I. getting any better. Big surprise another COD game lol. It looks like the new IP’s are the only bright spot. They didn’t answer the question of whether not you’d be able to play rented game, is it backwards compatible, or if you have to be connected to the internet all the time. I guess the real details will be given at E3.

RUF CTR3

Based on a Porsche Cayman chassis and body, the CTR3 is enhanced by RUF with a twin-turbo 3.8-liter flat six, which pumps out 700 hp. Carbon fiber and aluminum components help bring down the weight to about 3040 lbs, and the lightweight, mid-engine supercar is capable of reaching a top speed of 233 mph

Ferrari Vows to maintain image. Gorgeous, Exclusive, Powerful Cars!

Ferrari revealed today that after hitting an all-time record for sales in 2012, it will cut its output this year to fewer than 7,000 cars in a strategy to maintain its aura of exclusivity — which Ferrari Chairman Luca di Montezemolo compared to waiting for a beautiful woman.

In 2012, Ferrari sold 7,318 cars, its best year ever, and the 499 copies of the LaFerrari supercar unveiled in Geneva in March have already been bought up.

“Ferrari is like a beautiful woman,” Di Montezemolo said. “You must desire her, you must wait for her.”

LeBron X MVP Shoe

Nike is celebrating LeBron James’s fourth MVP award with a special edition LEBRON X MVP shoe.

The LEBRON X MVP shoe fuses the unique colorways and designs of each style in the LEBRON X series, which James debuted in August 2012. The design details, including MVP on the shoe tongue, weave the story of James’s incredible journey over the past year

Detroit Electric debuts SP:01

The SP:01 tips the scales at just 2,354 lbs. Power derives from an air-cooled, asynchronous AC electric motor, delivering 201 hp and 166 lb. ft. of instantaneous torque. Stats estimated at 0-62 mph time of just 3.7 seconds, complimenting its top speed of 155 mph lightweight carbon-fiber body.

A power rating of 37 kWh, the lithium polymer batteries provide a range of 180 miles with a charge time of around four hours (when using a 240V charge point). A patented bi-directional charge feature enables the car to power your house, too. Cooling is controlled by an in-house system, with a thermal management pack fitted to keep the batteries and motor running at an optimum temperature.

At $135,000, the SP:01 will not be an electric sports car for the masses

I have said this numerous times and even wrote a verse about it in a song. The media is nothing but smoke and mirrors but people REALLY think the after effects are REALITY! Wake up!!

Makeup has been known to do some wonderful things and it’s been known to do some terrible things. Whatever your stance on the application of lavish amounts of cosmetics is, there’s no denying that it can do some pretty astounding things to the human visage.

To really appreciate how radical the transformation can be, it helps to look at side-by-side comparisons of people with and without makeup. Or better yet, as the girl above has so graciously demonstrated for the Internet, look at photos of people with half their face painted in makeup and half their face without.
