Just to be clear--you easily transitioned from braking with your LEFT foot in an auto, to your RIGHT foot in a manual, and back to your LEFT foot in an auto, without any drama? Because that's what I...

Jewcano's got it exactly right. The connector you use to attach a drive has absolutely no bearing on what format is laid down on that drive. The only support the PS3 has for files larger than 4GB...

I did for years before I learned how to drive manual. Done correctly it's actually safer than using the right foot for both gas and brake. Reaction time can be quicker.

They've allegedly toned it down dramatically. It's still skinned compared to Nexus/Moto X/OnePlus, but far less obtrusive now.

For sure. If you have the skill to do it, the fastest way around corners is between 100% and 105% of available traction--just the barest hint of wheel slip. Drifting is probably more like 140%. ...

RIP Leonard.

Although I must say, this is the second high-profile death story this week I can't bring myself to be sad about--the first being Yutaka Katayama (Father of the Datsun/Nissan Z). Both...

Yup, my Geometry teacher was murderous with the eraser--pinpoint accuracy from clear across the room. At least when he nailed you in the forehead, the chalk dust covered up the red spot :)

Both CarPlay and Android Auto require that the underlying hardware be running Blackberry QNX (as does Ford's Sync). I'm pretty sure Toyota is still on their own proprietary in-house platform.
