Uber argues ‘fraud’ absolves it from paying star engineer’s $179M fine to Google

Uber argued in a recent court filing that former employee Anthony Levandowski committed fraud, an action that frees the company from any obligation to pay his legal bills, including a judgment ordering the star engineer to pay Google $179 million.

On Monday, May futures for West Texas Intermediate (WTI) dropped to the floor, with […] The post Your Opinion Is Now Worth More Than a Barrel of Oil appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

U.S. Trademarks Show Hybrid, PHEV Bound for Next-gen Lexus NX

Overseas trademark applications are nice, but the significant differences between those markets and our own often make such appearances a harbinger of not much.

A Norton-Powered ADV Bike from Zongshen?

The Future for Norton? This one is a bit of speculation, but there’s some legitimacy here, too. Chinese company Zongshen could put out an ADV bike that uses a Norton engine. In 2019, there was a concept of an adventure bike featuring an engine that was made by Zongshen in coordination with Norton Motorcycles. This came after a 20-year deal between Norton and Zongshen was inked for around 4 million engines. Basically, Norton sold the design. With all that has happened with Norton in recent month...

This hydrogen storage ‘sponge’ could be the key to safer EV fuel cells

A group of scientists claim to have made a breakthrough that addresses one of the biggest challenges associated with hydrogen cars. It could make hydrogen electric vehicles (HEVs) safer and give a significant bump to the distance they can travel on one tank. Researchers led by scientists from Northwestern University, Illinois, say they have developed a metallic sponge-like material that’s capable of storing greater quantities of hydrogen at much lower — and safer — pressures when compared to con...
