An ‘Uber for Tractors’ Boosts Income of Nigerian Farmers

On a recent trip back to the United States, I took an Uber and made small talk with my driver on the way to my destination. He told me he only bought the car we were in because he had this job with the smartphone-based car service.

This blew me away.

Last year, I had the opportunity to attend the Global Entrepreneurship Summit in Kenya, and I shared a stage with President Obama. It was a great honor... Read more

DUCATI XDIAVEL, SENSUAL DESIGN AND PERFORMANCE

Combining sensual design with performance, the XDiavel is Ducati’s first cruiser offering. Despite bearing the same name as an existing bike preceded by a letter “X”, this is no mere variant but a model in its own right: a true fusion between the relaxed riding style of machines with forward mounted footpegs and the adrenalin-fuelled world of Ducati. We spoke with Andrea Ferraresi, design director of the Borgo Panigale based brand.

“The initial ideas date back to late 2012, and development started the next spring. This model brings the extreme proportions typical of a show bike to production reality, a... Read more

What to Do If Your Lexus Infotainment System Crashed

If you have a 2014-2016 Lexus, your car's infotainment system may have mysteriously crashed, as our test vehicles did. Turns out Lexus sent an over-the-air software update that was glitchy, and rendered many of its cars' stereo, navigation, and information systems useless.

Unfortunately, you can't fix it yourself. You have to take it to a Lexus dealership. The cars are safe to drive.

Here's what happened: Lexus said in an email that an “errant data broadcast by our traffic and weather data service provider was not handled as expected by the microcomputer in the vehicle navigation head unit (... Read more

Evenflo SensorSafe Car Seat Alerts Parents to Presence of Child Still in the Car

The reports roll in with unsettling regularity: A young child is killed by exposure to extreme temperatures when left behind in a parked car.

For several years, child passenger safety advocates have appealed to automotive and child-restraint manufacturers for ways to prevent these avoidable leave-behind deaths. While many solutions have been developed, few have proven to be reliable, as proven by researchers at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

However, an innovation developed last year by Evenflo, called SensorSafe, could make a difference. The Ev... Read more

4. THINGS GET PERSONAL

NOTE: Don't ever let a mechanic bully you into using that particular service garage. If you're truly worried about hurting the car, you can have it towed for a second opinion or call up other places for an off-site evaluation. Mechanics might try to even suggest that you're putting your family or other loved ones in danger by not having something fixed immediately. Yo, back off, homie! You don't know my life, so don't try to make d... Read more

3. NAME BRAND EVERYTHING

NOTE:

There are a couple reasons this could turn out terribly. The mechanic might convince the average person that he or she needs XYZ brake pads by explaining that you can stop on a dime to avoid the idiot ahead in the minivan who stopped for no reason or to check out that super babe just passed running in her sports bra.

2. FIXING SOMETHING UNRELATED TO THE INITIAL ISSUE

NOTE: The classic line, "yeah, we saw that you need to replace the belt, that's what was squeaking, but while we were under the car, we noticed the tie rod over here is about to break, so you need to replace that immediately." Dude, just fix what we came here to get fixed and then we'll talk further investments.
