Being inside a car inside an automatic car wash can be so relaxing

I remember being so fascinated with automatic car washes as a kid. Your mom would pull up the family car and then relinquish control to what seemed like a highly choreographed ballet of robot arms and soap ballerinas that worked together to clean your car.

John Deere Thinks People Will Pirate Music With In-Car Computers

Thanks to the nuances of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), you’re not even supposed to inspect the inner workings of your vehicle’s circuitry.

Buying A Child-Sized Range Rover Is Definitely Spoiling Your Kids

If you were wondering if buying your kid a miniature version of a Range Rover would have a detrimental affect on their sense of entitlement, you're absolutely right.
