Between competing government space agencies, commercial enterprises, humans, and robots, we have one very odd space race going on. Here’s the highs and lows of exploration for 2015!
You’re not stuck staring at a computer or your phone on New Year’s Eve, are you? I hope not. But if so, here’s some reading material.
Despite what my dentist keeps telling me, I’m human. Aside from having a bunch of hair and fingers, that means that I do, sometimes, make mistakes. And I’ve made plenty this year. So I want to make things right. Here’s my corrections for the ten biggest mistakes I’ve made this year:
This past year it felt like we drove damn near everything. From Subaru rally cars to the Bentley Mulsanne Speed. From a Power Wheels to a McLaren 650S. From an Audi TT, to an Audi TT, to an Audi TT a third time, because sometimes we all disagree and everyone is wrong, including ourselves. This is every single car we…
There comes a time in every person’s life when he takes stock of his last year and he remembers all the wonderful time he spent with family, and friends, and colleagues, and also how he crushed a wood-paneled Chrysler PT Cruiser with a giant sport-utility vehicle that looks like Big Bird.
To some, traffic, “uniques” or clicks are dumb ways of measuring how good a site is. Amusingly however, those numbers however make Jalopnik’s reader forum bigger than some established automotive websites. Here are the most read stories from Oppositelock this past year.
Many, many car-related things and events and happenings and occurrences thinged, evented, happened, and occurred in 2015, and yet there’s still so very many that didn’t. Things that should have happened, yet, sometimes sadly, sometimes surprisingly, didn’t. Here’s the 10 things that should have happened this past…
It was easy for us to name the best cars we drove in 2015. Picking the worst ones, believe it or not, was a lot harder.
Not everything was all loud race cars and smiley Miatas in 2015.
Traffic, “uniques,” clicks, or whatever you want to call them, are all really dumb ways for measuring how good a story is. But very occasionally, incredible stories aren’t just brilliant, they’re also wildly popular. So with that in mind, these were the most popular stories we published in the past year.
2015 was an insanely wild year in robotics: From leaps in AI technology to piloted, Gundam-like battle machines. We’re living in a bizarre, sci-fi world that entangles humans with robots more than ever before. Here are ten of the craziest ‘bots from the past year.
Some automotive publications are happy bringing their audiences nothing but sleep-inducing reviews of press cars, dispatches from shrimp-filled junkets, repackaged press releases and bone dry industry news. At Jalopnik, we do things a little differently.
Looking through the cars Jalopnik has driven in 2015, I’m not sure there has been a better year for driving. At least, not in many decades.
Technology is all about progress. Sometimes it’s incremental or subtle, but other times it can be colossal and even transformative. In 2015 we saw a metal and silicone cornucopia of gadgets and gizmos. There were amazing deals, sad departures, brand new product categories, and even world-changing ideas. These are the…
My Uncle Nick and I don’t always get to talk. A shame, considering he’s one of the true car guys in my family. While on the phone with him late last night, I did the math—seven months since we last spoke. He asked me, “What’s new?” I started with, “So Jalopnik started a YouTube channel...and 90,000 subscribers later,…
America was built on speed. Hot, nasty, badass speed. (Other countries do it too, we’ve heard.) But sometimes the speed brings us some truly unexpected moments. To say that it was hard to narrow this list down to a top 30 was an understatement. However, that’s just what we’ve done: here are the 30 craziest, least…
We came, we saw, we played. We nominated, we debated, we decided. Here, in alphabetical order, are Kotaku's top 12 games of 2014.
