So, you've got an Austin Mini, a Toyota Celica GT-Four, and a few screws loose. What do you do? You put the all-wheel-drive turbocharged powertrain from the Celica into the Mini.

1985 Porsche 962

This 962 was the sixth customer chassis constructed by Porsche and was delivered to Jim Busby Racing for the 1985 IMSA racing season. It competed under BF Goodrich sponsorship in over 35 races during 1985 and 1986. It is the original factory monocoque and is displayed with the 1985 Sun Bank 24 Hours of Daytona livery. In 1985, under the Busby Racing banner, it finished second at Riverside and was driven to a 3rd place finish at the 24 Hours of Daytona by Jochen Mass, Jim Busby and Rich Knoop. 1986 saw Mass and Busby, joined by Derek Warwick and Darin Brassfield achieve a back-to-back repeat at the 24 Hours of Daytona. For two successful seasons, including eight podiums and 12 top five finishes, chassis 962-106 was a fierce competitor on the IMSA circuit.  Purchased in 2011, the car has undergone a complete race prepared restoration by Bob Russo with paint by Blades Enterprises and graphics by Dave Schnorr of Auto-Graph-It.

$40,000 for that Mini? A Mini's for keeps ;)
When it comes to MINIs, the crazier the better. That’s the philosophy behind their products lately and it seems to be working too. The Not Normal campaign was received with enthusiasm and even the cars themselves have a special touch that makes them … unique on the market.   However, older Minis seem to be going into a cone of shadow lately, especially in this ‘crazy’ regard. Luckily for us, there are still plenty of people out there that think t...

Google's proposed new headquarters in Mountain View

“Large translucent canopies will cover each site, controlling the climate inside yet letting in light and air. With trees, landscaping, cafes, and bike paths weaving through these structures, we aim to blur the distinction between our buildings and nature.”

Ripple News  - 
 
Xavier Bettel, prime minister of Luxembourg, paid a visit to Ripple Labs in San Francisco last week to better understand the role of fintech and cryptocurrencies. Although a small country, Luxembourg has the second highest GDP per capita in the world and has always played a strategic role in the European Union. Not sure that this news is of huge importance, but then again, Xavier Bettel could broach the subject of Internet payment protocols with his European counterparts when he gets back.
Le Premier ministre a rencontré les dirigeants de la société californienne développant un protocole d'échange de monnaie virtuelle. D'autres sociétés américaines ont également été visitées.

Awesome engine for the Mini. BMW motorcycle heads with a supercharger on a 1380. Find it here: http://twinkam.co.uk/epages/191f6b26-60bf-483c-b021-755a0c9099c1.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/191f6b26-60bf-483c-b021-755a0c9099c1/Products/SCE002. It has BMV motorcycle heads (if that's all the BMW content you'll ever get in your Mini, so be it). Just took the pic of that engine at a classic car garage a few blocks from my home in Monterey, CA. Ready to be installed in a 70's Mini, the mechanic told me. But he wouldn't tell me for whom. Maybe Clint Eastwood, he lives not far in Carmel, and is a Mini nut ;)

IDC: Android has over 80% of the world's mobile OS market share. But there is more good news for Android: the Softcard mobile payment system will soon come pre-installed on Android smartphones (running KitKat or higher) sold by wireless carriers AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless. Separately, as if to confirm Google's product strategy of "two of each", the new Android Pay will compete directly with Apple Pay. And last but not least, Android's latest foray into the enterprise market with Android for Work is bound to confirm Android's world supremacy.
Summary:This was a big week for Android, with news of the platform's dominance of the smartphone market, the upcoming Android Pay, and Google's enterprise push.
