web marks 20 years today


Sir Tim Bernors-Lee has always been a hero for me. He's the guy from CERN who got the whole ball rolling. Well, I got an email form a close friend reminding me of how long it's been (thanks bob). Here's the link he sent along: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2418330,00.asp

You can follow the link there to the world's 1st web site that has been restored just for this occassion!

The Case Against Electric Cars - Nicht Schparky Autos
Despite the benefits  and claims for the environment, electric cars (including hybrids like the Fisker above), are experiencing genuine resistance in the marketplace; not just here in North America but worldwide. In a column for the National Post recently, Bjorn Lomborg takes a run at why this is happening. Read about why electric cars are failing and companies like Fisker are in serious trouble.

We haven't spoken with any customers driving hybrid German cars - but the parts from Germany will fit just as well as they do on gas or diesel-driven machines.

<Satire> turbo encabultor</satire>

Take a good set, add a couple of credible actors and a script from outer space and PRESTO!  - a ridiculous little video that only a tuning enthusisat could sit through. This little tech talk is complete fiction but lots of fun. Enjoy.

If you drive a German car - you can find real tuning and styling products off the LLTeK Home Page.

Audi's Illegal Headlights?

No need to go apoplectic or apocalyptic about this story but apparently "vorsprung durch technik"  has lost something in the translation. David Worthington makes the connection over at smartplanet.com. "Car headlights have long been equipped with just two settings: high or low. German luxury automaker Audi wants to break that tradition by introducing variable settings..." --- you can find our improvements for Audi cars here.

4 Rings plus Pepper Potts

The third Iron Man movie opens on the big screen in just a few weeks. Can't wait. Can't wait. Imagine Tony Stark says, "Jarvis, ask Ms.Potts if she can meet me in the pool this evening (yes, the one that overlooks the Pacific) and could you see that there's a tray of refreshments - say a pitcher of vodka and V8 on the side?"

If you close your eyes & let your imagination off the leash, you'll be able to see Gwyneth Paltrow (pictured fully clothed at left) just a few minutes later as she goes coastal in a brand new Audi A7 on her way to the mansion. If you like Audis (and who doesn't),  that's gotta be just as good as seeing Robert whats-his-name in an R8.

Hey wake up! and don't hold your breath waiting for the pool scene either - cause it's just not going to happen. Characters like Pepper Potts do not show up on You Tube whoo-wooing after the pitcher of vodka is done. But the A7 is real and the R8 is back again also. The real rumor is that Pepper Potts ends up taking it for a spin - not the R8 - the Iron Man suit. Oh Yeah! Can't Wait.

btw - we're waiting on our first german bodykits for the Audi A7 /S7 and will post them up here when it happens; in the meantime we are offering two tuning devices for the A7 from german engineers - an audi air suspension lowering device and a DIY plug 'n play chip tuner which is just about as hot as Pepper Potts..
