This is an amazing concept. Especially at stops I feel like I could use this technology to enable me, campus bus operator, to interact better with bus customers. I think it will eventually replace my current job, but it will make buses more appealing and efficient because it will make them more predictable and comfortable. +Mercedes-Benz​

I forgot about the +Toyota USA C-HR until I stumbled upon some new interior photos. I really like the detail on that defroster vent. I can't wait till this car comes to the US market. I hope it has a couple of engine options.

Just an absolutely amazing video. This sort of thing should inspire tuners to take full advantage of the suspension setup of a Prius. Monster regen, tighter suspension and maybe an aftermarket to beef up the internals of the planetary CVT. I think there is so much potential that is not being tapped!

+TOYOTA +Toyota USA does the 1.2T come with the self-cleaning injector function that is found on the new 3.5 D4S engine in the 2016 Tacoma? I currently own a direct injection engine and as it has reached 110k miles recently I've been concerned with carbon build-up on valves and injectors, but I enjoy the power and responsiveness that direct injection offers.

I think there is actually a strong connection between this and the Prius. I think there might be some performance potential to be wrung out of the little fuel miser.

Online ordering mixed with small test drive only dealership might be fun.

If you doubt the majesty of strip mall food then you need to try Yummy Polo. They make Peruvian style chicken and they are proud of the quality of their ingredients. If you're looking for a healthy lunch then you have to stop here. The chicken was cooked to perfection, done in small batches in an oven from Lima, Peru, which makes it a unique and personal experience. The owner is very kind and very passionate about his product. My wife Katelyn and I will be back.

The rooms were extremely clean. The staff was very nice and always greeted us. I would highly recommend staying a night at the 52 Stafford if you happen to be in the Plymouth Kohler Elkhart Lake area.

A very nice Starbucks. The baristas were very kind and courteous. It was a nice stop on our way to Elkhart Lake. I love a nice, well-designed Starbucks on a road trip.

If you're traveling south of S.R. 37 this is a great place to stop for coffee. The staff has always been nice, and it is a great place to recharge on a trip south to places like Salem, Paoli or Corydon, IN.

I think that this restaurant was mildy overpriced for the fare that was offered. It is a very normal American restaurant with decent food quality. Seems to be mostly focused on being a lunch and after work spot for Kohler employees.

Indiana University is a special place for me. I've been a student and an employee during my time in Bloomington., IN. Despite all the ups and downs I have truly fallen in love with IU. There is no campus like IU anywhere in the United States. The majesty of the limestone buildings and the constant sense of activity when school is in is unique to IU. All I recommend is to question your reality at the University. You are one of tens of thousands and you have to look out for yourself. Take your time going through school, and don't get caught up in projecting the power and majesty of the IU campus onto yourself. It is up to you to make your own way. The university will help you, but don't rely on it to define your career. Always think critically, but do so with a smile and an understanding that person-hood can get lost in the shuffle at an institution as large as Indiana University. Tyler Lipa B.A. Journalism '16

This Starbucks is located right off the IU campus. It is a favorite of students looking to study and write. It is a bit difficult to find a place to sit and this location does not have a drive thru. If you have class in the Student Building or at the Media School in Franklin Hall this is a great place to walk in and grab a coffee on the go.
