BMW's new eco sub-brand to be called "i" {Autoblog Archive}

Feb 21st 2011 11:02AM Apple does not have an i3 or i5 trademark nor do they own the trademark to the letter "i", merely "iPod", "iPad", "iMac" etc. The fact that they happen to have the one letter in common is not enough to establish "i" as a derivative trademark.

Mothra! Godzilla creators reportedly taking Honda to court over Odyssey ad [w/video] {Autoblog Archive}

Feb 18th 2011 11:57PM Fair use is only appropriate for criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research. Honda's lawyers could *try* to sell the commercial as belonging to one of those categories. Good luck finding a federal judge that would buy a laugh like that.

Report: Army wins fight to keep spending money on NASCAR sponsorship [w/poll] {Autoblog Archive}

Feb 18th 2011 11:48PM I would love to see Congresswoman McCollum use that finely calibrated sense of fiscal propriety on entitlement spending and labor unions.

Feb 18th 2011 8:06AM Yes, any DOHC manufacturer would get more hp/liter out of a 7.0 liter v8. However, in the world of stats that actually matter to making and buying a great sports car engine, the Chevy small-block v8 is difficult to beat in terms of hp/(price+bulk+weight).

The Streets of Monaco super yacht features go-kart track... and everything else {Autoblog Archive}

Jan 7th 2011 3:14PM The tanker guys are most likely talking about Great Circle navigation. Lay a string on a sphere as the shortest line between two points, then plot that string precisely on a map. If you do it correctly, the string will describe an arc on the map and require frequent course changes to maintain, but it will save time and gas.

This does not strictly require GPS (although it makes it easier) and has nothing to do with the size of the boat.

Video: Aprilia makes real bikes for real men {Autoblog Archive}

Dec 27th 2010 8:57PM Considering that Ducati riders are squarely in their target market, why insult them? Aprilia makes great bikes, but their marketing department needs some help.

Video: 1968 Ford Mustang fastback is our kind of holiday caroler {Autoblog Archive}

Dec 26th 2010 1:28AM Nice, but it would have been much nicer if they built in a just a little simulated inertia to the engine to make it sound more natural.

Report: Automakers struggle to find balance between CA policymakers and state's buyers {Autoblog Archive}

Dec 22nd 2010 12:13PM "A question: if the people of California don't want to buy these cars, then why, pray tell, are they voting in representatives who propose things like this?"

Two words: rampant gerrymandering

Dec 22nd 2010 12:10PM "The US Constitution...[does] not give the government purview to tell people how to do their business."

The US Congress most certainly can tell businesses what they can and cannot do. See Commerce clause and Supreme Court jurisprudence ever since 1937.

If the federal courts have disavowed themselves of the right to strike down federal legislation involving commerce between the states, you can bet the same will apply to our wacky California legislators unless Congress asserts its supremacy power.
