classic beard


The New York Times ran an article on the new Lithium Ion T-zero from ACPropulsion. They got the 0-60 time down to 3.7s, the top speed is around 100mph, and the range is around 250 miles at highway speeds.


The price: $220,000.

I've been watching this car since I started at MetaCarta last year; it was "around $100k" custom then, supposedly. Still, something to work towards. Now... well, it's going to take a lot more work...

Hmm, frogpad doesn't work on the powerbook. I wonder if that's an artifact of the recalled 10.2.8 update... it works fine under linux.
