Honda has taken their CR-Z sporty-ish(?)/hybrid coupé and given it a mild facelift, with the hopes of taking it from selling like hotcakes that have been urinated on by a dog to selling like hotcakes that have hardly any urine on them at all.

We loved the original "Mario Kart." How could we not love a mash-up of our greatest 80s addiction with vehicular mayhem, all set in a multi-player environment. Now, 19 years after that original hyperactive treat, "Mario Kart 7" is set to drop like a turtle shell.

There's a trend I'm beginning to notice around the massive halls of auto shows: scattered among the sheet metal, booth babes and PR flacks, there's a hell of a lot of video games — both your standard issue Xbox-PlayStation3 setups as well as the more elaborate simulators.
