2018 Kia Stinger Release Date, Price and Specs – Roadshow

“More power!” barks Markus, the development engineer sitting shotgun in a 2018 Kia Stinger prototype with me as I drift around a massive circle track on a frozen lake in Arjeplog, Sweden.

Asus Chromebook Flip review – CNET

Post Image

Remember the now-discontinued 11-inch MacBook Air? The Asus Chromebook Flip C302CA is like a cheaper version of it that you can actually buy. The 12.5-inch Asus laptop is a capable Chromebook with an all-aluminum 2-in-1 design and touchscreen. It looks and feels like a sleeker, more expensive product and, to be fair, for a Chromebook […]
