Pininfarina Hard Drives

Say the word Pininfarina and I'm instantly intrigued. The latest object of desire to get the magic touch from the Italian design house most famous for the Ferrari is the humble storage drive. SimpleTech has created a Pininfarina-designed SimpleDrive line that includes a portable hard drive, external hard drive and USB drive. The sleek and simple drives come in white, black and a Ferrari reminiscent red. The hard drives can be found for around $100.

Sportech gives a Golf 335 hp and 1,800 watts

Sportech is a South African tuner with a penchant for German cars. Out to build the fastest GTI around, they are currently working on a people's missile called the P Cubed Golf. It will have, among many other things, 335 hp, and is being built to handle just as well as it flies.

Somehow they plan to wring those 335 ponies from the turbocharged 2.0-liter that hauls the GTI, but Sportech hasn't said how they'll do it. If they pull that off, they expect a top speed in excess of 150 mph. And because apparently there isn't much to do when traveling at Mach 0.2, inside the car will be an 1,800-watt Rockford Fosgate system, three 7-inch touchscreens, two tablet PC's for the back seat passengers, wireless Internet, and a DVD screen and 15-inch sub in the trunk. Oh, and the rear bench is swapped out for twin Recaros that match the ones in front.

According to Sportech's Chad Wentzel, the paint job is meant to "make more than a few heads swivel with its dramatic looks." If you happen to be in South Africa on April 27, you can check it out at the Castrol Extreme Show. Mach schnell indeed.

Frase em carro funerário

You've gotta love a good sense of humor. It takes a special kind of person to purchase an old hearse as daily transportation, but we like it. It's irreverent and offbeat but (morbidly) practical, with lots of cargo space. The "NDERTKR" plates are simply to die for. And that plate frame -- "My day begins when your days end" “Meu dia começa quando seus dias terminam”-- seems divinely inspired. But the coup de grâce here is the single handprint on the INSIDE of the back window. Positively wicked.

Cientistas encontram planeta parecido com a Terra


Cientistas encontram planeta parecido com a Terra

Astrônomos europeus encontraram o planeta mais parecido com a Terra fora de nosso sistema solar. De acordo com os astrônomos, a temperatura do planeta poderia muito bem possibilitar o surgimento de vida.


Esta ilustração simula o novo planeta
orbitando a estrela anã Gliese 581

O planeta tem tamanho parecido com a Terra e é um dos primeiros planetas potencialmente habitáveis, sem contar a própria Terra e Marte.

Os astrônomos que anunciaram a descoberta do novo planeta disseram que isto os coloca próximos da resposta para a pergunta: Nós estamos sozinhos?

"É um significante passo no caminho para a possível descoberta de vida no universo", disse o astrônomo Michel Mayor, um dos 11 cientistas europeus da equipe que encontraram o novo corpo celeste. "É uma bela descoberta. Nós ainda temos muitas perguntas".

Baby Grand Master™ - The King of Video Instruments

Experience

The Blending of High Technology and the Highest Audio/Visual Standards

When you first touch the controls of the Baby Grand Master™, be prepared to experience an entirely new sensation. Unexpected power suddenly fills the room. You immediately notice the rich fullness of the video and sound. The controls respond almost intuitively to your fingers. Designed to take advantage of the latest high technology, the Baby Grand Master™ interface is remarkably intuitive. It's understandable that no video instrument in modern history has ever made itself seen and heard so immediately, or so dramatically.

It began as a challenge: could a new kind of video instrument design eliminate the compromises and complexities in most audio visual devices? Even with sophisticated computer modeling to speed each breakthrough, the process required six years. All designs for the Baby Grand Master™ are unique. Playing the Baby Grand Master™ is proof that technology can indeed be taught to enhance performance, not compromise it.
