The Silicon Valley gazillionaire of concern today is Jan Koum, now ex-CEO and co-founder of WhatsApp, a Facebook subsidiary. Koum, according to the Washington Post, is peacing out over the usual complaints of “strategy” and “Facebook’s attempts to use its personal data and weaken its encryption.” But importantly, he’s…
Defective airbags from Takata have been linked to 18 deaths and hundreds of injuries, but more than 10 million vehicles still remain unrepaired at this point, according to a report issued Friday. It’s an unfortunate situation—one that Honda’s now trying to reconcile by tracking down affected owners through Facebook.
Remember that non-existent rumor a couple years back about Facebook—that, like other oversized tech behemoths of Silicon Valley, it could be making a self-driving car? It wasn’t true then, and it’s not true now. That’s according to the company’s chief operating officer, Sheryl Sandberg.
I’ve never found the Lotus Evora to be that compelling, especially compared to something like a Porsche Cayman. Apparently dumping some weight and giving it 400 horsepower fixes any problems it may have had. This is the new Lotus Evora 400, and we’re testing it live right now.
Italy has produced some of the most incredible dream cars the world has ever seen. Ferrari. Lamborghini. Maserati. Those are not what we are driving. Instead, our man Jason Torchinsky is at the Lane Museum for the Macchine Italiane Rally, and he’s driving a Casalani Sulky.
Few cars at any price are as hotly anticipated as the new Ford Focus RS, the new 350 horsepower all-wheel drive God Hatch. Now that it’s on sale in Europe, our tame racing driver Robb Holland has one and wants to show us what it can do on one of the oldest and most dangerous race courses in the world.
Our man Jason Torchinsky has already raged at the failures of the 2016 Ford Mustang GT’s new tattle-tale indicator lights, but that doesn’t mean the rest of the car is bad. Not when it’s a bright red convertible with a 5.0-liter V8 under the hood! Jason’s here to tell you all about the car.
Nobody likes jackasses who don’t use their turn signals, who Tweet or text or twerk or whatever on their phones while driving, or are rude, road-raging reprobates. We get it. That all sucks. Does that mean it’s okay to publish the identities of these drivers online? I don’t know, but these people seem to feel it’s a…
It looks Facebook wants to take the event function a step further and help people actually get to those events. Is the social media giant getting into the ridesharing game? Based on these patent filings, maybe so.
A seven-year-old racer named Emma went home from school in tears after her teacher said that girls don’t race cars. She was so crushed by those words that the track where she races has asked for words of encouragement from other female racers. So far, the response has been overwhelming.
UPS opened up a can of worms when they decided to do a photo mosaic for their logo. The idea was to use fans' Facebook photos as the background. Of course, someone had Dick Butt (which is a doodle of exactly what it sounds like) as their photo. Now Dick Butt will take a glorious ride aboard the Ferrari SF15-T. …
With all the buzz surrounding Google's self-driving technology and this week's rumors that Apple is developing its own electric cars, it might seem like the cars we love are turning into the Borg. But there's one Silicon Valley stalwart that isn't interested in expanding into the auto market: Facebook.
In a recent update to their Facebook, Delta offers up 10 Reason Why Girls Don't Give Bl0wjobs. It's not just a brand being cheeky because they're your friend, they say they were "compromised." To put it mildly...
A French court has imposed a one-month driving suspension on 15 drivers after they were convicted of posting the locations of speed traps and cameras to a Facebook group.
Dropping the F-bomb, calling everybody dumb or spamming your Facebook feed? You name it, and these companies will deliver.
A 15-year-old created a Ferrari Facebook page back before it was a social media empire, and it grew so successful that the people in Maranello wanted it. So they took it. But Ferrari might not have actually been allowed to do that.
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is known for leading a more humble lifestyle than you'd think a man worth a gazillion dollars would. That includes his car, which is a nice little VW GTI. Good for him.
GM's relationship with Facebook could best be described as "It's complicated." First they pulled their ads off the 'book, and then they decided to come back. And don't forget the drama with ex-CEO Fritz Henderson's daughter. Now GM North America chief Mark Reuss has suspended his account after using it to respond to a…
