Ever wonder what happens when you agree to the end user licence agreements (or EULAs) that you must abide by to use modern technology? This past weekend, I watched a documentary that explores the chain of events you set in motion when you click things like the “Submit” button behind Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s shoulder in the […]

When carmakers design new models, they look for inspiration in a variety of places. Nissan’s designers? They visited the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels. Their attempts to imbue a car with a jet fighter’s looks results in the 2016 Nissan Maxima. I checked out a Platinum edition in the Maxima-exclusive exterior colour Coulis Red to see what they came up […]

Acura entices people to move up to its vehicles using its entry-level ILX, but there’s little about the ILX that’s “entry-level.” One drive in this vehicle is all it takes to figure this out.
Visiting family in Italy both as a child and an adult, I’ve ridden in my share of Fiats. I even drove my aunt’s Punto a couple of times. My cousins may lean towards Lancias and Volkswagens, but our parents favoured Fiats, those economy runabouts made for places where space and gas for cars both come […]
Even though I’ve had Apple iCloud Drive for about a year, I hadn’t bothered to use it until recently.
