​This Valet App Might Be The Next Best Thing To Uber

Parking in most major cities – and San Francisco, in particular – sucks. More often then not, when the wife and I head into the city for a night out, we park somewhere cheap and Uber our way around. It's both idiotic and costly, but it beats circling for a space for 45 minutes and then walking 10 blocks. That's why… » 10/24/14 9:25pm Yesterday 9:25pm

The Air Force's Shadowy Space Drone Comes Back Down To Earth

The X-37B has become a blank canvas for which scientific and paranoid minds alike have painted their technological dreams and nightmares.

​The New Maybach Will Be 18-Feet Of Plebeian Pummeling Luxury

Keyless Entry Systems Are Causing Driverless Car Wash Crashes

Mr. C's car wash in downtown Detroit has a problem. When employees put a car equipped with a door keypad on the conveyor, the brushes are registered as button presses. After a few invalid codes, the doors lock up, and a driverless car is rolling out of the wash. Yes, the law of unintended consequences is alive and… » 10/17/14 6:45pm 10/17/14 6:45pm

​Tesla Owners Think They Were Shafted By Model S Upgrades

When Richard Wolpert put in an order for a new Model S in March, he asked the Tesla reps if adaptive cruise control would be offered later, and if so, he was willing to wait. They said no. So when Tesla announced its Auto Pilot mode last week, Wolpert was a bit pissed. And he's not alone. » 10/17/14 4:22pm 10/17/14 4:22pm

We're Still Waiting For The Ultimate Electric Hoon Machine

BRD has been promising us an electric supermoto for over three years. We've been patient. We've asked questions. We've sat by while it scored a Tesla exec to sit on its board and got a $4.5 million round of fresh funding. Now it looks like they're finally ready to deliver, but first, it's time for... rebranding? » 10/16/14 6:17pm 10/16/14 6:17pm

​2015 Yamaha YZF-R3 Is Further Proof It's A Good Time To Be A New Rider

If you're just getting into bikes, the smart money has always been buying something used and then working your way up. That's still the case, but there's been a raft of great new entry-level rides in the last year, including the Kawasaki Ninja 300 and Honda's CBR300 (as well as the CB300F). And now there's this: the… » 10/16/14 3:52pm 10/16/14 3:52pm

South Park's Take On Tesla And Ride-Sharing Just Wasn't Funny Enough

Sacred cows make the best burgers, which made last night's South Park episode that much more tasty. The grilling includes Matthew McConaughey shilling for Lincoln, Elon Musk and his D, and ride-sharing as the future of personal transportation. With that much material, it's hard to understand how it all fell flat. » 10/16/14 2:40pm 10/16/14 2:40pm
