    New cars can stay in their lane—but might not stop for parked cars

    This is an interesting research study conducted by AAA about the ability (or lack thereof) of driver assistance technology to avoid certain non-moving hazards.

    The sorry tale of my order

    Demo of startup video / opening sequence graphics (on screens)

    When I watch the video, I can't help but imagine that the car is making this sound the whole time the screen is displaying that sequence
