Audi Intelligent OLED Lighting Display: Just Imagine the Repair Costs
Audi makes some pretty sleek cars, and their designs are often cutting edge, especially when you check out their new ideas about lighting technology. I’ll admit that most cars that I’ve had needed better lighting, especially when you’re driving along dark country roads, far away from the freeway.

TireHawk TPMS Kit Lets You Monitor Your Tires from Your Smartphone

Cardrops Turns Your Car Trunk into a Mailbox for Your Convenience
I love getting mail and packages the old-fashioned way. There’s just something comforting about opening a letter to read it rather than just having to click an e-mail to display the contents. Like most people, I have a job, so I can’t always be home to answer the door when my packages get here.
