Setup involves using the Nvidia button on the controller or the mic key on the remote to get started — the former supports hands-free Assistant activation (which can be toggled on or off), while the remote requires you to press the mic button. Since this is a pretty big deal for Nvidia and Google, the latter is offering users a free 3-month trial subscription to YouTube Red. Like I said at the top, Google says that SHIELD TV owners will be able to get in on the Experience 6.0 upgrade starting today.
The adventure bike market in India is showing a lot of interest from consumers. Currently, the big adventure bike segment is dominated by the Triumph Tiger 800 models, and Honda’s newest adventure bike, the CRF1000L or Honda Africa Twin, has already sold out the first lot of bikes assembled here in India. A middleweight adventure bike, with a 650 cc engine could make for a very interesting product. Benelli is already working on launching its upcoming adventure tourer in India, the Benelli TRK502. The TRK502 will be launched sometime in 2018. Kinetic Engineering-owned Motoroyale is also working on bringing in a lightweight, 600 cc adventure model, the SWM SuperDual to India.
“When I filled out the booking form I had to give the flight number and estimated time of arrival. I put down British summer time by mistake, which was two hours behind Greek time. When we arrived at the airport hire desk we were told the car had been held for an hour and that no other car was available. We had to get a taxi to our destination, which cost us £50. All AutoEurope offered to do was organise another car that, if I wanted it immediately, would cost £2,700, or £700 if I could wait a week. Two days later I found an alternative provider myself and paid £300.”
Duane always loved working with people, and said he will miss the friendships he’s made, the auto industry relationships he’s had since first opening and the customers he’s helped. He still sees second- and third-generation customers come in for parts, who can remember hanging out in the office lobby drinking a soda while waiting for their own fathers to find a part.
Smart money advisers insist one should not spend much more than 10 per cent of one’s annual income on a car, but that is just ridiculous because this means that with your healthy pay packet of $42,000 (Sh4,326,000) a year, you are limited to a first-generation Toyota Premio or a Subaru Legacy BH5 like mine, yet I earn waaaay less than you do. No, can’t do. The “compromise” is one fifth of the annual income, which lands you in something newer, but still used. And you are still in Range Rover territory, even for ageing overused examples. Range Rovers might depreciate worryingly, yes, but they are not exactly free of charge either.
" Said, "Lil bitch, you can't fuck with me if you wanted to" These expensive, these is red bottoms, these is bloody shoes Hit the store, I can get 'em both, I don't wanna choose And I'm quick, cut a nigga off, so don't get comfortable, look I don't dance now, I make money moves Say I don't gotta dance, I make money move If I see you and I don't speak, that means I don't fuck with you I'm a boss, you a worker, bitch, I make bloody moves"
The weird notion that only the buyers, not Tesla profits from the govt tax rebates has to be one of the most outrageously inane propositions since the battery swapping fisaco. IN a compettitive business like that faced by most automakers (not Tesla, yet) the govt lowering the list prices of their car by $7500 would be an absoute windfall, and the subject of howls from the MSM. I would LOVE to be in business if my products could have a $7500 price advantage over my competitors. It’s called, surefire profit city, fella, I fully expect sleazy Musk to argume, after his cars lose their govt welfare, to argue that “we no longer need and govt subsidies.” If this doesn’t happen, Tesla will face a huge price disadvatage – of course Tesla is already raping their customers with their marketing scheme for their “Affordable” (don’t laugh) Model 3 : advertise a mostly vaporware $35,000 version; provide it with a small battery (50kwhrs) to ensure that it is inferior in driving range to the Chevy Bolt, then offer a “battery upgrade – to 75 kWhrs, so their owners won’t be made fun of by Bolt owners, and price this option, which costs Tesla Motors $3750 to install, at $9,000. It’s called bait and switch, combined with fraudulent marketing. And also save company money by skimping on service, but charging an arm and a leg. After all, if you can’t screw your own cultist customers, who can you screw?
My Nissan 350Z does the same thing. My cam position sensor is flaky, when it can’t figure out what is going on the car stumbles like its going to stall… then I get 3 lights: SES (service engine soon), VDC (vehicle dynamic control) and SLIP (traction loss). The SES is easily reset by my OBD-II Bluetooth interface but the VDC and SLIP lights require a shut off and restart of the car. The OBD-II code confirmed the cam position sensor circuit failed. Seems to happen randomly but the forums have confirmed at my mileage (@ 70K now) these sensors tend to die. Once they finally go you can’t start the car! As mentioned the reason an ignition problem trips the anti-skid/traction control is the car will adjust the throttle (drive by wire) to ensure you don’t spin out. Seems like overkill but all these things are tied together and clearly designed to avoid cascade failure type situation where one system’s failure renders multiple systems useless. And the only way to inform the driver is a Christmas tree light show in the dash.
While the 540i is indeed very comfortable and controlled on pockmarked roads, even on smooth pavement it lacks the steering feel and chassis feedback that made the E39 such a treat. There’s seemingly too much of the 7 Series philosophy of executive comfort at work and not enough of the driver-focused mojo that remains the heart and soul of the 2 Series. The 540i confidently hurtles itself down the road, tackling twisting sections of pavement with calmness and composure, but no part of me feels involved with the experience. Even equipped with rear-wheel drive instead of all-wheel drive, the chassis doesn’t transmit enough information to the driver about what’s going on before it’s too late and you’ve exhausted the grip of the tires. While the trappings of sportiness are there, heavier steering, red-colored gauges, and adaptive bolsters that keep you snug in your comfy seat don’t constitute the essence of a sport sedan.
From a broader perspective, Quathromme notes that in order for a manufacturer such as Caterpillar to nurture its competitive strength it must ensure that it reacts to structural market trends, and at present, the product trends are being steered by four main drivers. The first is the tightening of diesel exhaust gas emission requirements, which requires next generation engines and exhaust gas after-treatment systems. This might not be strong as in Europe but, Quathromme notes, as Caterpillar is a company that cares about sustainability, this is a point of concern globally.
