9/20    Why does Toyota like to pair up a new model name with an existing
        model name before using the new model name on its own?  The Supra
        started as the Celica Supra, the Tercel started as the Corolla Tercel,
        and currently there is the Camry Solara.
        \_ Marketing 101. Leverage existing brand names to build new ones.

        Hack your Toyota Prius so you don't have to press the stupid I AGREE
        legalese before using the GPS. Thanks oj!
        \_ My Lexus has the same problem. Also, it won't work while
           driving. 'sup with dat? $50K for a crippled car. Toyota sucks
           so hard I will never buy another. This was my first and likely last.

11/20   "Far from vanishing, many of GM’s assets would be quickly purchased
        by competent foreign automakers eager to expand their capacity in what
        is the world’s largest auto market. Happily, the list of well-run car
        companies, from Toyota to Nissan to Porsche, is long."
        big FAT LOLZ there.  When GM closes up, GM's factories are going to
        go idle and rust and provide excellent opporunities for hipster

           \_ I know you don't believe in technical indicators, but today
