For what it’s worth, Forza and GT are not sims. They are arcade games with some attention to realism, as opposed to a game like Burnout or Forza Horizon that has just about zero ties to reality. Read more
I will never understand the purpose of carplay or android auto. If you’re driving, you don’t need to be using your phone. At most you’ll want to switch radio station or skip a music track once every few minutes, that’s it. Read more
He has a valid point. Apple takes other people’s ideas and markets them, that’s their entire business. We shouldn’t give them credit for inventing it, all they did was sell it to people who weren’t tech savvy enough to use what already existed.
The solution is not to ‘tip’ before the service is complete, it’s to not use the service at all until they raise costs to the point that it actually functions (i.e. you order something, pay a delivery fee, and that’s enough to cover the driver’s cost). It’s only a tip if it’s after the service is complete.
If the base rate doesn’t cover your costs, it’s too low. That’s not the customer’s problem to solve, it’s door dash’s problem. All drivers should refuse orders if the rates are too low, then people will stop using the service or they’ll raise rates. Read more

A supercar is a sports car with too much power for a public road.
You can technically call the 79-81 SA gen 1, 82-85 FB gen 2, and FC gen 3. In that case, FB wins since it was the first to get the 13B.
I was very close to buying a Quadrifoglio about a year ago and ended up with an M3 instead. The Alfa drove better and looked better, and reliability wasn’t a big concern for me since it’s a weekend car (daily the cheap two seater, road trip the big sedan), but lack of a manual just kills it for my use case.

Can’t get the V8 with a manual though.
I think I’d actually like these articles if they weren’t a slideshow. As-is, I’m not wasting my time clicking through slides and will never find out.
The MX-30 is basically an expensive golf cart that’s road legal, and that’s ok, but admittedly an extremely small market. If you want to pair an electric car for short city trips to the 7-series equivalent you already have, it’s not a bad choice. It works because it’s downsides vs the competition are irrelevant to… Read more
