Sherpa, a Spanish voice assistant, expands Series A to $15M as it passes 5M users

When we think of the AI platforms that are shaping how we use voice to interact with phones, home devices and other services, we tend to think of Amazon’s Alexa, Apple’s Siri, Google and Microsoft’s Cortana. But there are other players that may prove to have a compelling value proposition of their own. Sherpa.ai, a voice assistant out of Spain that also provides predictive recommendations with a focus on the Spanish language, today is announcing that it has expanded its Series A by $8.5 million ...

Do you subscribe to the subscription trend?

You can subscribe to just about anything today. I can remember, as a kid, that one of our neighbors got a fruit of the month shipment. We were fascinated by what kind of fruit he might get the next month and when the box arrived – we were all there for a peek and a taste. It wasn’t just that we didn’t see a lot of papaya in Minnesota, but it was the novelty of the monthly shipments. Fast forward to 2019 and you can subscribe to pretty much anything from razors to dog toys to clothes, cosmetics,...

Watch a helicopter airlift a brand new Porsche through the Alps

A sports car dropping from the sky onto a mountaintop sounds like something out of a James Bond movie. But in this case, it was more of a night of fine dining, without a pesky shootout or whatever getting in the way of 007’s meal.            [Author: Buzz60]

Supra Vs. Z4: The Fine Line Between Toyota & BMW Sports Cars

The 2020 Toyota Supra is destined for greatness. But there’s a problem. The BMW Z4 M40i is basically the same car albeit with a more powerful motor. Which begs the question: when is a Toyota sports car not a BMW? Where does one end and the other begin? The much anticipated hype is over. In the immortal words of my colleague Tony Borroz, it’s time to stop frothing at the mouth since the 2020 Toyota Supra is finally here. And boy, what a journey it has been, huh? I’m pretty sure Toyota did ev...

Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 Clubsport incorporates natural fibers into body design

A race car made from flax and hemp? Count on Porsche to pull that off.

A first in the racing world, Porsche has sourced natural fibers from agricultural byproducts such as flax and hemp fibers to create the doors and rear wing on the cars. With sustainability in mind, the Porsche...

Used Sports Cars: The Key Considerations Before Buying

They are generally the definition of premium, so it stands to reason that there are a few more considerations when you part with your money for a sports car. However, when you start to shop in the “used” category, a whole host of other points enter the picture. Let’s not forget that without generalising, a lot of these cars have been driven very “hard” and it means that you have to be a little more careful before you complete your purchase. To highlight the point in-detail, let’s take a look thr...

Car Design Curiosities: This Oddball 1970s Porsche Station Wagon Looks Like Your Kid Drew It

Every classic car brand has their undesirable models, and for Porsche it's got to be the unloved 924 (or arguably, the similar 944). Intended as an entry-level Porsche--the gateway drug to get you into the brand--the 924 debuted in 1976 with Porsche's first automatic transmission and an aesthetically unfortunate beltline. We've just learned that in the 1980s, an aftermarket company called DP Motorsport took several 924s and converted them into "Porsche 924 DP Cargo" station wagons: ...

Ruger Single Six (.22/.22WMR) Side by side with Heritage Rough Rider.

I know, kinda like comparing a Porsche and a Yugo, right?:rolleyes: Still, I thought I would work them out a bit against each other to see if paying up to 3X more is worth it for the average backyard plinker. First the price. Average street price new for the Ruger Single Six is north of $450 new. The Heritage Rough Rider (in this case with the adjustable fiber optic sights) is around $180, $160 with fixed sights. Both have interchangeable cylinders for .22 lr and .22 WMR. Overall size with...

In review: 2019 Porsche Cayenne

It's a complete makeover for 2019, but the Cayenne still looks like a Cayenne: there's only so much you can change when you're dealing with such an iconic brand, of course. It's still a great driver, and while I had the entry-level model, buyers should check it out before they automatically head up the ladder to something more powerful -- this, to me, feels just right. Find out more in my review over at AutoTrader. [Author: Jil McIntosh]
