Steve Jobs address at Stanford

I’m not sure why it was so stunning that Jobs was resigning as Apple’s CEO– he’s almost  done it before, and the man really has been at the top for long enough, let him get some rest!
Somewhere on NPR they were suggesting this, and it’s really great; he doesn’t go on too long, and shares three great stories:

Lamborghini Superleggera heels

This is quite possibly the sexiest pair of heels ever. Ok, well, they’re awesome anyway– I really hope the lights on the back glow a la little kids shoes 🙂  Apparently, they don’t really exist– “they were designed on computer by Tim Cooper as a conceptual product for Tonino Lamborghini” according to Luxury Luxury Auto Direct, which seems just as good a source as any other on information on this, because I can’t really find any! Of course, where else really would anything be designed if not on a computer? What a silly thing to say…but I believe the point is that they perhaps never LEFT the computer screen!  Anyway, they are really neat and this has apparently been around since the middle of 2010:

and the car it was based on:

Now if only I could find the car in the same price range as the shoes…

When did the Camaro go on sale as a convertible?

Saw this yesterday in Fahaheel, and didn’t know they existed yet! Checked Chevrolet’s site and it seems they are indeed ready for buying!

Funnier though, is that thanks to Jalopnik, I found out that apparently this car made it’s debut on a Glee version of Britney Spears’ classic “Baby One More Time.” It’s a classic, you know it. Awesome.

Lee Grace Dougherty (the escaping bandit) Subaru ad

Thanks to Jalopnik for this bit of extreme hilarity.

“Three siblings from Florida, sought for a string of robberies, stole a Subaru Impreza and led police on a 20-mile car chase in Colorado at speeds of over 100 mph. The chase ended when cops put down a “stop stick.”

So it follows that Subaru should take this opportunity to brag about the bad-ass factor of their cars! Or crash-worthiness, perhaps? Anyway, someone made this bit of brilliance, in keeping with their “Love” campaign which features owners and their activities:

Ferrari makes a hatchback? FF!

Well, technically it’s a “shooting brake.” Which is somewhere between a hatch and a coupe– but it seems like more companies are exploring this very different looking body style lately. The most commercially successfull (and one of my favorites) recently was the first generation BMW Z3 Coupe:

Then Audi had their Shooting Brake concept, which was only slightly differently commercialized as the Volkswagen Scirocco:

But I do have to say, the Audi and the Scirocco–while I do love seeing the Sciroccos in real life and they look great– aren’t quite… as racy as I’d like my shooting brakes to be. I mean, I suppose the real question is, when is it not just a low hatch? I imagine the rear seats might be one differentiator, making things like the Scirocco or Alfa’s beautiful Giulietta very attractive hatchbacks and not quite shooting brakes. Oh wait– then the subject of this post is a very attractive hatchback as well! Well, you decide:
