BMW Z4 CONCEPT


From looks like Jaguar 

BMW motorcycle


750cc-engined R62 in 1928. Unusual at the time, the R62 has all the things that are hallmarks of BMW motorcycles — horizontal twin engine, shaft drive and a cantilever front suspension.  Good engineering lasts.

Nokia 8 smartphone strikes back


B- but logo on the front?  C+

Elbike an electric bicycle


The best looking e-bike out there on kickstarter but 32 km/h (20 mph) top speed is slow and wish it was a rear drive.  
Also swappable battery is good but the location is not good.  Back of front tire is where bicycle gets the most dirty.  Imagine riding this on a rainy day morning commute and want to charge it up in the office by taking out the battery...  Swap the orientation so I can take the battery out from the top, not the bottom of down tube.  And give me slimmer seatpost then A.

Beat tune

Intel CEO Brian Krzanich drops out of Trump council

Anvil hotel


In Jackson Wyoming.  With this Motel like setting yet good taste, I would have stayed here when we paid a lot for mediocre half assed somewhat modern wood cabins in the Yellowstone National Park.

Mustang M2 diecast toy


Scored this Mustang at Walmart for $5.  Way more detailed than the Hot Wheels and now sits on top of my Grandma Impala.  I love the body color matching wheels.
