Self-driving trucks will soon grace the highways of Nevada - sounds like a good idea if it catches on.  For the near-future, these big rigs will have drivers that can over-ride the auto-piloting - totally driverless trucks may take a while to gain reliability, safety and acceptance.
Head of Daimler Trucks and Buses Wolfgang Bernhard talks to Maggie Lake about the future of driverless vehicles.

My Review of the ZAGG Folio iPad Case w Keyboard

Review of the +ZAGG iPad case with keyboard and a preview of what is coming for iPd Air2 users - from our visit to the ZAGG booth during the recent Consumer Electronics Show #CES2015  

#ipadcase   #ZAGG  
We were pleased with the overall performance, useful features, and increased productivity when compared to typing on the built-in iPad touch screen keyboard.

I have visited Tortilla Republic many times, and have just experienced the most fantastic breakfast on Kauai. Their unique quesadilla was stuffed with eggs, cheese, bacon and onions and may be the best I've ever tasted - including many eaten in Mexico itself. Their beignets compare favorably with those I've had in New Orleans, and the coffee was perfect complement to the meal. Dinners offer other taste treats, starting with a big guacamole that's custom made at your table. Appetizers I've had include a nice-sized cerviche, tasty flautas de pollo, and jicama tacos - a dish you seldom see on other menus. The main dishes I've had were uniformly wonderful. The carnitas were both tangy as well as savory, and the seafood dishes featured local fresh fish that were never too dry and had sauces that brought out the best in each type of fish. Chicken enchilada dishes were excellent as well. Three things make Tortilla Republic stand out from the crowd: 1) their unique take on Latin-inspired cuisine (this certainly isn't your typical Mexican restaurant); 2) their amazing (and huge!) selection of fine tequilas that the knowledgable staff helps you figure out; and 3) the music scene, with live music by one of the very best bands on Kauai two nights a week, and a nightclub on Saturday nights that rocks late into the night. With attentive, friendly service and food this consistently good, t's hard not to come back night after night!
