I especially like the manual. It is far more fun than any contemporary car manual I have ever seen. Ford Mustang’s have been built ever since 1964 and created the term “pony car” as a class of American automobiles with long […]

My new phone: Motorola Razr V3i

My new phone: Motorola Razr V3i. The battery is good for many days but I don’t get how I could have used it’s UI for years without going crazy. And I clearly remember it being one of the better ones. Well anyway, … it will do just fine whenever I want to be less smart on the go.
