I am loving what +Dodge has done with the 2015 refresh of the Challenger!

> Sits lower with a new suspension.
> 8 speed auto attached to the 5.7.
> New grille & taillights.
> more pronounced hood-scoops.
> overhauled interior.
Someone let the cat out of the bag early, as the 2015 Dodge Challenger has made an appearance on the Web. Chrysler will debut this car tomorrow at the 2014 New York Auto Show, but the information won’t be new thanks to the leak onto the internet. Noticeably missing is the high-performance SRT model that is rumored to have the brand’s new supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 Hellcat engine. Regardless, this is the first look at the new Challenger that ...

A new Stout beer drinking glass?

I'm still not sure how much the shape of a glass enhances the flavors of beer or wine, but these guys claim to have found the perfect shape to maintain & enhance a stout's flavors/texture/head for the longest.

FTA:
To help bring the glass quality in line with the beer quality, Spiegelau and teams from Left Hand and Rogue considered everything from the shape of base to the angle of the bowl and rim. The slightly concave form they settled on for the bowl helps preserve the aromas unique to stouts. It also acts like a scent cannon, delivering those alluring and complex fragrances straight to your nose. Meanwhile, the glass’s narrow top supports head retention, as does the angled shelf the beer flows over as you sip your gloriously dark brew.

I just love my Stout Snifter to much to even consider that this glass is that impressive.

It's a crunchy kind of day.

This was one of my favorite +Disturbed songs off of the 10K Fists album. Definitely underrated.

On SXSW: Data Privacy after Edward Snowden

This is my first deep-dive into this year's SXSW Interactive, focusing on the virtual interview with Edward Snowden. In this I review about the main talking points I took away from the conversation as well as investigate what the NSA revelations mean for anyone working within technology. I attempt to stay away from politics and just dig into the realities of what has happened.

Included is a timeline of the disclosures related to the NSA documents released by Snowden.

So much potential.... but I cringe seeing Bay's name attached to it.  Still, give it a quick watch!
 
Oi!

T.M.N.T. trailer!

I don't hate it. And I still think Megan Fox is a good pick for this.

Dawn of the Rail Gun

So anyone that's any sort of military buff knows the Navy has been hell bent for election that they were going to build a Gauss cannon.  Using electromagnets, these weapons are used in science fiction as fast-high-impact weapons.

And now the US Navy has unveiled their current prototype:  a rail-gun that can fire a 23-pound shell over Mach 7.  I'm tickled about this because it's just another instance of SciFi steering the future and eventually becoming reality.

Now the kicker that we don't know is how many rounds a barrel can fire before being worn out, which has been the classic issue with previous prototypes.  I suspect the chemists have created a "miracle" lube to deal with the insane amounts of friction.

Another thing that amazed me was the camera that was able to track the projectile.

This kid does a cover of some Skrillex with his 8-string elec.  The melodic crunch, I love it!

Give it a listen.

Introduction
The imagination is one of our most precious human abilities.  It's taken us around the world, to the depths of the ocean, and to the moon.  It will tug and pull at you at the most inopportune times.  It will drive you to try something new or meet new people.  Imagination can reach into your comfort zone and pull you along.  Why?  Because you imagine what it might be like over the next hill, across the pond, in the dark forest, or cruising among the stars.

I purchased my 2009 Dodge Challenger R/T when the Dodge dealership was separate from the Chrysler dealership. At that time, the level of quality was great, especially in service. Since the combination of the two, service quality has gradually decreased. Now Hall will never see my car again. Here's why: They have repeatedly forgotten to do service items requested. This ranges from state inspection (they did their "world class inspection instead") to not installing all of the after-market parts requested. Which, by the way, had 400$ in labor attached to. Of course they'd want me to bring it back in to do the other 1/2 of the work! They put a quarter-sized dent in my passenger door that goes down to the sheet metal. Talk about infuriating. When I called them & told them, "hey, I just brought the car home from your service department & it has a dent" - they just said "bring it back in sometime next week & we'll look at it." I haven't been back since & will not return. It just so happened on this particular service appointment the mechanic took my car out for a drive to try & diagnose what I had already told them was a loose exhaust bracket. Find another Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep dealership. Their mechanics are rushed, miss stuff, & take poor care of your car.
