I’ve been driving around a Super Motard motorcycle for the last six months, and let me tell you, it’s extremely loud, so loud that my neighbors have asked me to start it outside the courtyard where it’s usually parked.
It’s taken McLaren almost 15 years, but they’re about to finally release the F1’s successor, the P1. Like a few of the new supercars, it will feature a petrol engine mated with an electric motor to boost its power to even more.
It sounds very strange to say Porsche and hybrid in the same sentence, but the company has been working on hybrid cars for a long tim. In fact, they’ve been offering a hybrid version of its four-door Panamera since last year, and also has the hybrid 918 Spyder supercar.
There’s something quite amazing about hybrid and electric vehicles, especially if you tend to pile on the miles each and every week. At some point, you become interested in cutting down on costs, spending less on fuel, and being more mindful of the environment.
iPhone cases and USB flash drives are probably some of the most popular tech around, and both things that you almost always have to have on you. That’s one of the reasons why ego decided to combine them into one sleek package.
The internets are abuzz with Microsoft’s latest offering. The first tablet from the software giant borrows its name from their already well-regarded multitouch system, and is named Surface. The tablet was unveiled last night in LA with big fanfare at a press event.

The world has gone hybrid crazy it seems. The hybrid makes a lot of sense in that you can reduce the amount of fuel you use and save a bit at the pump. They also make less pollution we all have to breathe as well.
We here at Technabob aren’t exactly known for our automotive reporting, but that doesn’t mean we don’t like cool cars. Now, Ford is showing off a new car that combines sporty performance with the type of geeky technology we love to write about here.
I have always wanted to learn to fly, since aviation is an interest of mine. It’s been very interesting over the last few years to see the giant push for green vehicles in the automotive sector spill over into aviation.
If you walk up to a bunch of automotive enthusiasts and start talking about the virtues of a hybrid we might listen if only because we need someone to buy the Prius and Focus Hybrids, so the V8’s we really like can continue on thanks to CAFE.
What’s red, shiny, goes fast, and looks like a vehicular accident? The Pontiac Aztek, that’s what. I’d rather have the Snaefell, François Knorreck’s lovingly handcrafted car-motorcycle hybrid. It’s easier to think of it as a motorcycle with a car-like sidecar, because I don’t think that you can drive – or steer – with the car half.
Knorreck reportedly spent 10,000 hours and €15,000 (approx.
Move over, Puzzle Quest. You had a good run with the whole jewel-matching RPG hybrid, but the big boys have come to steal your throne… and rock our faces off. Gyromancer may be a little late (the Puzzle Quest folks already moved on to sci-fi), but it really doesn’t matter when this boat arrives.
