BMW has dropped the curtain on its next-generation 4 Series coupe, the first member of what will become a broad family of revamped right-sized offerings.

2021 Toyota Sienna: Have It Your Way

Long overdue for a revamp, the fourth-generation Toyota Sienna bowed today, ditching the previous model’s 3.5-liter V6 engine in favor of a more fuel-conscious alternative.

Hawks’ Forbidden Love Results in a Rare Hybrid

She was a common black hawk. He was a red-shouldered hawk. They weren’t in the same genus, let alone the same species, and they normally don’t even live in the same part of the continent. But in a strange twist of fate, none of that mattered: It was love at first screech.Read more...

This retro-future 6-propeller racing drone is inspired by Ferrari’s F1 cars from the 50s

There isn’t really much to say about the Lazzarini FD-One that isn’t said in the title.

My back feels better but I did a bit of damage to my hip joint, which happens now and then. It's a weak spot, that joint. Some healing has to happen before I can sit for long periods. That includes the computer so I am not out and around visiting on the web much either. This was the first thing I pulled ...
