Is your computer slow right now? Maybe there’s something you can do about that – right now.
Four-door hatchbacks can’t be beat for practicality, fuel economy and drivability. Automakers have increasingly been scaling down their popular crossovers to create large hatchback-looking vehicles.

Call them mini-crossovers. Call them tall wagons. Call them increasingly common, members of a vehicle segment that’s exploding with new arrivals. Among all the flashy new segment entries competing for market share, older models like the 2016 Kia Soul are raising their game. Kia leant me a red/black two-tone Special Edition-Sport for a week, and I’m happy to report this sporty […]
In early June, I gave a one-hour workshop at the Vancouver Editors Canada conference. I spoke about Inbox Zero, the lack of which can be a drag on productivity.
