The THING. It became a familiar sight during my childhood years, times when I imagined ultrafast travel (nope) and a handheld Computer that knows it all (typing on one right now)

History recreated. Following the trend that history is taught to the masses via modern media marketing. Here are only some nice images how we nowadays imagine how those scenes may have looked like .. In the tellings of our grandparents, the world was more black and white,  much like the original pictures, and a lot more dusty.

While Russians may not produce the most desireable cars in the world, they have amazing flying gear. Note the presence of Buran in the background, the small car in front is a Lamborghini Huracan. Enjoy.

This slipped through during summer vacation time. Looks like I own the phone for the road warrior.
While I use an iPhone 5 from time to time and I have not touched a recent Android device this year, also so-and-so feedback keeps me off Windows Phone - but I'm a happy Win 8.1 PC user, while I write these lines.
Disclaimer: I work for the company who put together the winning OS.

Another goodie from The Atlantic. And yes, I once had a homepage on tripod.com. Celebrating 20 years on the Internet .. next year.

(*) Einer meiner Spitznamen. Und ich habe auch Aktien mit Blackberry.

Here we have a car from italian driving school. Two possible scenarios: 1. Italians are not driving carefully, they need extra protection. - unlikely, So.. 2. This is driving school for a self driving car. In case something goes wrong, something goes wrong for the other participants in what we call "traffic". Ordinary people would buy an SUV .. well, this italian driving school knows better!

Dashcam videos rule. In Deutschland noch nicht populär, kamen Dashcams erst in Russland wegen der oft eindeutigen Rechtslage - kein Revolver im Handschuhfach = keine Vorfahrt - zum Einsatz, und hier nun ein beeindruckendes Video aus China.
Und da die Automobilpresse gerne über autonome Fahrzeuge schreibt, die hätten in solchen Situationen keine Chance, trotz vorhandener Fahrbahnmarkierungen. Spass beiseite, es wird vom sogenannten "Qualitätsjournalismus" viel Unsinn geschrieben, die technischen Möglichkeiten mit der menschlichen Wahrnehmung verquirlt, zum Vergnügen der Leser. Soll man nicht alles glauben was gedruckt daherkommt.
