2014 Acura RLX at 2012 LA Auto Show

As a loyal Acura Automobile owner and fan of the brand, I’m watching this and hoping that the design changes will help turn the RL line of Acura around in sales and quality design. From what I see, this just may be the answer! Got to visit a dealership soon!

Samsung Galaxy Camera Is a Game Changer [REVIEW]

The Samsung Galaxy Camera is an incredible device. Samsung‘s daring attempt to combine Android with serious compact camera has created what could be the gadget of the year. Like great fusion cuisine, it takes advantage of the strengths of its two components to overcome their weaknesses. The result: delicious progress.

Nikon debuted the first Android-powered camera, the CoolPix S800c, earlier this fall, but that product had issues. While the idea of running Android apps such as Instagram on a point-and-shoot was intriguing, Nikon’s implementation used a primitive version of Android (version 2.3 “Gingerbread”), which resulted in a buggy, shoehorned experience. Plus it only connected via Wi-Fi, so users couldn’t share pictures while on the go.

Since 2008, a winning ticket in Washington – The Washington Post

It’s fair to ask questions about what the past four years have meant for smart growth, gentrification and the evolving populace’s understanding of the city’s history, but to borrow a line from a typical stump speech: Are we more entertained than we were four years ago? More discerning with our palates? More mobile? More cultured? Our unscientific survey of notable additions to the cultural landscape says the answer is an unequivocal yes. My fellow Washingtonians, here are the city’s 10 most significant arrivals and openings since Election Day 2008

Spingarn streetcar barn design is fine, but not exemplary

Last night, DDOT released renderings of its design for the proposed Spingarn streetcar barn. The proposal is a passable building, but the design is likely to disappoint residents whod been expecting great architecture.Streetcar barn design. Image from DDOT.DDOT originally wanted to locate the maintenance facility for its H Street streetcar under the Hopscotch Bridge, near Union Station. That proved impossible, so DDOT switched its plans to the most practical alternate site: the Spingarn High School campus.Though the design lacks the ornament and detail of DCs historic streetcar barns, it is typical of contemporary institutional architecture, which is a step up from the bare bones necessary for industrial buildings.
