You’re walking down the street and out of nowhere, a person with their head buried in their phone slams into you sending coffee flying everywhere.
It’s an all too familiar tale. And, if it was Starbucks in that cup, an all too expensive tale.
However, relief is on the way. Honda recently announced their new “Sixth Sense” system which sends alerts to your phone when you’re nearing an object.
Keep that head buried deep in Instagram folks! There’s not a world out there to see or anything. 😉
It’s in your genes. No, really.
Have you ever left the car dealership wondering if you really made the right purchase?
Did you get swindled by a savvy salesman? Did you get nervous and prematurely pull the trigger?

Boy, that’s GENE-ous.
Elon falls on hard times.
You know what everybody says, “The best jokes come from Silicon Valley.”
Ok, maybe not.
But, the crew at Tesla came up with a real knee-slapper this weekend announcing bankruptcy. The news was especially tough for Elon Musk who ended the day surrounded by Teslaquilla bottles with dried tears still on his cheeks.
There are many chapters of bankruptcy and, as critics so rightly pointed out, Tesla has them *all*, including Chapter 14 and a half (the worst one).
