Get Happy!

Dave Winer blogged that this is the best commercial ever. He may be right.

No joke. This commercial makes me want to buy one of these cars.

Deadstick landing.

The video's title describes this as an engine failure. I don't believe that's true.

This was a "simulated" engine failure for training purposes. Under the proper circumstances, which these seems to have been, that is perfectly safe, and very good training.

And it looks like fun too.

This used to be high tech

The hotel key at the motel I stayed at the other night was unusual. Some sort of edge connector/circuit-board in the form of a key. The front desk programmed it when I checked in, just like they do with the "card" keys most hotels now have.

BTW, check out the condition of the door around the latch. It didn't give a real warm-fuzzy about the safety of this facility. Probably won't use this motel again.
