Cool (Electric) Car

Something caught my eye today. Something I had never seen before. And I thought I’d share some pics I snapped of it.

Turns out this thing is a hybrid – a Fisker Karma.

And runs about $100,000.

No wonder he didn’t want to trade me for my TechPaulmobile…!

(Heck.. if an electric car looks like that, even I might want one..)

  2. Those are pretty cool! Justin Bieber got one from Ellen DeGeneres that is all chrome plated! They got about $250,000 in stimulus money for their factory… in Finland! Regardless of politics, not sure why a Finnish country got USA stimulus money, but I guess that’s why I’m not a politician!!!

    • csaz,
      There’s a few things I might say to that..
      But I think it might be prudent to merely say that that vehicle was certainly an eye-catcher. (And there’s no shortage of fancy/expensive cars here in the SV.)

  3. Hi Paul,

    Nice car!

    Happy Pi Day! :)

    So..here is some free or almost free stuff..

    From BDJ today only..Nature Illusion Studio Standard Edition (PC) 100% Discount Coupon Code

    “Nature Illusion Studio Standard Edition transforms your nature photos into living works of art with weather effects that are sure to astound! Using Nature Illusion Studio Standard Edition, you can add realistic snow, water, rain, and more, then throw in some butterflies, birds, and other objects to increase the level of nature in your nature photography. You don’t need to be a professional graphic designer, either, since Nature Illusion Studio Standard Edition offers an intuitive interface that lets anyone transform their photos.

    It’s not just rain or snow, either. Within each category, you have complete control over such details as the intensity, wind direction, speed, transparency, and size.

Nature Illusion Studio Standard Edition lets you add sound effects to all of your photos, immersing your audience in a total sensory nature experience. When you’re done, you can save your living photos as self-executing files, videos, or screensavers!

    Not sure how long this is on for…
    SuperLauncher Registration

    ” SuperLauncher is a hot key program launcher, a scheduler and a task reminder that all together works as a productivity booster shortenning significantly the time taken to get to those programs and websites you are just opening and re-openning all the time. Make sure to go through the steps of the initial tutorial to quickly learn how to use the program.”

    Then why pay $60 or $70 for games..or deal with DRM..Like SimCity..
    Will SimCity Launch Disaster Stop Online-Only DRM? – ReadWrite

    “SimCity proves once and for all that online-only DRM is an utter failure. It doesn’t even do much to combat piracy – making legitimate customers feel more pain than the pirates.

    There’s a big difference between protecting content reasonably – perhaps with activation codes or secure disc-based DRM – and asserting authoritarian control over the people who actively want to pay for your product. The first priority should be treating paying customers with respect.
    If You Don’t Like The Terms, Ignore The Product

    Those hosed by EA don’t have much recourse. EA is not offering refunds for digital copies, and fuming in online communities doesn’t seem to have much effect on the giant company.

    Going forward, the only real solution may come from the most helpful 1-star review on Amazon, from a user named Malor who earned more than 7,700 recommendations. He noted that SimCity is not a typical game with a beginning, middle and end. It’s a toy, and you used to be able to buy that toy and play with it. But now, Malor wrote, “You don’t even get to buy your toy. Rather, you rent a toy from EA, who lets you play with it only in very limited, circumscribed ways, only on their servers.”

    Malor’s final recommendation offers perhaps the best approach: “You would be wiser to take three twenties out of your wallet, and light them on fire.” In other words, don’t waste your time or money on products with draconian DRM, no matter how intriguing they might be otherwise. Only when DRM affects sales will EA and other publishers take this situation seriously. ”

    • delenn13,
      This is quite a share, here, today! Thank you.
