      Spirior is what they badge the Acura TSX/Euro Accord as here in China, where both it and the larger North American Accord are sold.

      I'm impressed that they can fit an airbag in that tiny steering wheel hub. Is this a sign of things to come for all manufacturers?

      Exactly. Freedom of speech =/= freedom from the consequences of that speech.

      Hongqi (pronounced hong chee) is made by FAW, one of China's largest automakers, and one of VW's partners in China. They, along with pretty much all of China's major automakers, seem to have figured...

      How is this any different from car manufacturers designing for the US market? China is now the largest automobile market in the world - how can it be any surprise that all the car makers are...

      If he was the CEO, and his actions negatively affected the business of the company, of course he could be forced out. That's just how corporations work. Of course, if other people who supported the...

      Freedom of speech =/= freedom from the consequences of that speech. Nobody was stopping this guy from supporting anti-gay causes, but the consequences of that are as we see here. Somewhat...

      In Calgary, Canada, where I'm from, lights are always mounted horizontally, as in this picture.

      There's quite a few places in China that I've been to that have horizontal lights, and from what...

      China doesn't have daylight savings time, so the only reason it bothers me at all is because it changes the time hockey is on at on my Slingbox and the time at which I can call my folks back in...

      I've had a few made here in Shanghai. Never had a problem with fit or quality. Only around 600RMB (~$100), including a tailored dress shirt - though turnaround is usually 5-7 days. I've never done...

      Both of my brothers have some kind of mental illness, so I'm very intimately acquainted with the fact that people with mental illness don't behave the way 'normal', rational people do. This woman...
