Audi RS 7 Concept: That’s a really fast autonomous car.

Without a doubt one of the coolest things to happen in 2014, Audi spent this past weekend live broadcasting their latest innovation by introducing the world’s top performing car.. without a driver. Rippin’ the corners inside the Hockenheim Grand Prix circuit at up to 240 km/h, the driverless Audi RS 7 Concept car floored spectators both in the stands and online via Audi MediaTV, finishing the hot lap in just under 2 minute 10 seconds. The most obvious question at the moment is:  ...

Smirnoff Double Black Blackademy – Style Tips for the Absolutely Clueless

There’s nothing better than funny poking fun at the average Joe. He’s a bit lost in the style department, could use a bit of work with the ladies and well, etiquette? He’s still never opened a door for a woman not his mother. Lets be frank here: most guys, especially those who still subscribe to Maxim or wear unisex cologne are both clueless and everywhere still. Smirnoff’s latest campaign of 15 second style advice clips titled Blackademy include an army of  ...

Getting Over My Fear of Eye Glasses with Polette Eyewear

I wasn’t always a confident dude, you know. For most of my life, I wore butt-ugly glasses. I’m not sure if it was like that for the rest of you 80s babies, but when I was in elementary school, eye glasses were always associated with geekery and nerdisms. In Grade 4, I used to be in big-time denial over it: lying about my deteriorating vision to my parents and guessing what the teacher wrote on the chalkboard. After crying my eyes out when I was told I needed glasses, I was sure that it  ...

5 Things That Make the 2014 Acura MDX “POP”, Plus a Super Relaxing Getaway.

Alright, alright, alright. I’m probably little spoiled by Acura at this point. I must’ve test drove a slew of great vehicles on their fleet, including the TL [read this], ILX [watch this], and the RSX. All extremely legit cars that I’ve raved wildly about. I’m very specific about my favourite types of vehicles to write about. I don’t like driving shitty cars. At my age and experience, basic level vehicles are pretty much off the cards. Of course, I probably  ...

5 Favourite Things About the 2014 Volkswagen CC + Fun Test Drive Destinations

This is my first Vee Dub I’ve driven, I think. Well, except for the Jetta’s in the Autoshare fleet, but they typically smell like worn gym sneakers. I’ve always admired Volkswagen’s advertising though, but I think the allure has more to do with their premier German engineering that really sets the bar high for nearly every other auto manufacturer on the block. With all that magic and expectation that Volkswagen has put me on, I’m happy to say that the 2014  ...

50 Years of Ford Mustang: What’s your Mustang theme song? + My Bad-Ass Mom’s ’78 Mustang Cobra

Hey everyone, guess what? 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the world’s most popular muscle car, ze Ford Mustang. Yup, that’s right: you’re actually that old. What makes me kind of excited about this is that I get to call my mom and ask about her old Mustang. The first ride she had was a 1978 Ford Mustang Cobra, and she was about as bad-ass as you’d think she was driving that damned thing. Unfortunately I wasn’t around to see it, since my birth spawned some  ...

5 Really Important Things I Learned About Mobile Wallets from PayPal

Mobile wallets. It’s been on the top of my mind for the past year, mainly because I’m one of those guys that has to wear both hats. I tend to look at things from both the end-user perspective first, and from an business integration perspective second. From a customer perspective, it’s a blessing for guys like me who never actually carries cash. As a business, the potential excites the hell out of me. It’s inevitable that this is our next eventual step. As a retailer,  ...

The New 2014 Toyota Corolla: Why It Isn’t Your Father’s Car Anymore

A few weeks ago I was invited to catch a preview of the new 2014 Toyota Corolla. Like most people, I had a ton of concern regarding how new, exciting, and sexy this car could be. I mean, it’s a Corolla. We grew up to boring parents driving us to church in it. Those beige colours gleaming proudly as they park in front of our schools among all the other nondescript cars. In case it has never occurred to you, Corolla’s cache of non-descript automobiles in the past two decades is  ...

Philips introduced me to two neat new Light Therapy products that are meant to make someone’s day a little more booming. They make for pretty interesting  ...
