The people who designed this were probably all software engineers who never pay attention to that stuff. They probably designed it like that because accelerating = moving forward, so a forward motion should initiate that action; the opposite is true for braking. Basically, they designed it like a video game. On Gran… Read more
Its like damn near every modern car I've been in having the upshift/downshift backwards except for Mazdas, bugs the shit out of me in my wife's Kia.
Right? This is more an embarrassment than an ad for their autonomy engineering abilities
This car was probably designed entirely by college students who have never actually driven a car because they’ve biked or ridden the train their entire lives. I don’t know how else to explain how they managed to cram so many bad ideas into a single concept.
This is the CYA clause, to direct you away from correctly judging the staff to be hypocritical click chasers.
I think the problem is that NOBODY on this website has mixed feelings about the kind of street racing that takes place in the city. And now to have mixed feelings about another kind of illegal street racing.. it seems hypocritical.
Those salary multiples by age are widely misunderstood. The Twitter outrage over “you should have 2x salary saved at age 35" was somewhat misdirected; yes, it’s difficult as fuck to get started, but no, you aren’t at risk of never retiring and a total failure if you don’t have that. Read more
If it was in the post or in the Investopedia link I missed it, but here’s the actual survey from June 2018, which goes into a LOT more than just average 401k balances: https://www.transamericacenter.org/docs/default-source/retirement-survey-of-workers/tcrs2018_sr_18th_annual_worker_compendium.pdf Read more
I drive past a Lambo dealership every day and a. I have never stopped to look even once and b. when I see them in traffic (which is daily) I’m not interested in the slightest. They all carry more than a whiff of flat brim hats and tribal tats. And the colors are all hideous. I’m all for bright, but the shades they… Read more
They have broken the first rule: Make it gorgeous. Now, we can argue the merits of the Model X but few people would argue the Model S isn’t a serious looker. Years later and it still stands out on the road for its sexiness. Faraday has spent a lot of money mashing a Lexus SUV with an BMW i3 to make something that is… Read more
Isn’t that a pretty car? This was roughly the same time that Mazda also produced the NA Miata and the FD RX-7. There’s not a mass-produced car in the world today as nice-looking as those three. In fact, these days Toyota and especially Honda seem to be on a kick of making their line-up as ugly as possible, I guess… Read more
