You might remember this blacked out e60 from a few months back. Since then it has been redone still with the black theme but a little different. See if you can spot the differences.

If you are in your mid to late 20s or older, you probably grew up watching Randy “Macho Man” Savage running around a ring yelling “OOOH YEAAAAAH” or saying the same catch phrase in his many Slim Jim commercials. Through out the 80s and 90s, Savage built an illustrious career wrestling in local territories and eventually making his way to the WWF (now the WWE) and WCW. You probably remember him most for wrestling side by side and against with Jake “The Snake” Roberts, The Ultimate Warrior and Hulk Hogan. And if you’re a male, you probably remember him for walking to the ring with the Lovely, Miss Elizabeth.
Today we are sad to report that Macho Man, real name Randy Poffo, suffered a heart attack while driving his Jeep Wrangler in Tampa, Florida. As a result of the heart attack, Savage lost control of his Jeep and veered off and collided head on with a tree. His wife of 1 year Lynn was also a passenger but only received minor injuries. As a result of the heart attack and injuries from the crash, Savage later died in a Tampa hospital. You can view the Official Highway Patrol Report Here.
Above is a photo of Savage’s Jeep after the accident.
Hyundai and Prada is no longer laughable in the same sentence, as it was not so long ago. Hyundai now carries a very different image. No model shows it more than Genesis. And although it is yet to be seen if the Genesis name will branch off to form its own high dollar badge. Moves like this sure make us believe so.
Two years ago, the Korean automaker announced a partnership with the Italian fashion house with a concept car. That car has now launched the production Genesis Prada in its South Korean home market. Distinguishing the special edition luxury sedan is special paint – either Brown Moro, Blue Baltico or Black Nero – with a shark-fin antenna on the roof, offset by dark chrome trim and special 19-inch alloys. Saffiano parchment leather swaths the interior along with piano lacquer black trim and a rear-seat entertainment system. And of course you can count on the requisite badges to identify this Genesis as different from all others.
Hyundai’s celebrated 5.0-liter V8 with 424 horsepower is on pushing duty, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Who’s black and red gilled cover makes me think of the old Tiburon a car I always liked. Distribution will be constricted initially to South Korea, before availability will commence in limited numbers of China and Middle Eastern markets.
Although Super8 film projectors are now beyond absolute, that did not stop is Camera nut Friedemann Wachsmuth. His painstakingly constructed a fully functional Super 8 Movie Projector using only Lego Technic (well almost). The only non-Lego parts are the lens, the reel spindles and the lamp. Lego projector runs at 24fps without mangling celluloid, not bad for only the most minor use of non-Lego parts. A labor of camera geek love.
The projector uses just two engines and is fully featured with automatic feeding, 24 fps, fast rewind and 120m reel capabilities. A decent LED flashlight makes it pretty amazingly bright.
The biggest gathering of BMWs anywhere – Bimmerfest is this Saturday at the Rosebowl in Pasadena, California.

A few of the nation’s biggest wireless carriers have wised up. They are putting a stop to apps that let Google Android users tether their smartphones for use as modems without paying the carriers’ extra fee.
Free Android phone tethering apps that are typically found in the Android Market are not available for Android phones on AT&T, Verizon Wireless, and T-Mobile USA. Sprint customers apparently are still able to access many of these tethering apps from the Android Market.
AT&T and Verizon have said that Google chooses which apps are in the Android Market. Neither company would comment on whether they asked Google to remove the Wireless Tether app or any other free tethering app from the Android Market.
However a Google spokesman told Fierce Wireless that it is not blocking the app. Instead it’s simply making it unavailable for download on certain carrier networks at the request of those carriers.
In essence, the apps are still on the Google Market, but they are just not visible to users on certain carrier networks. Apps are only hidden from view on certain carriers.
If your sly enough you can you can still side-loaded these apps onto the device. If the developer distributes the application file in a way other than the Android Market (say, just as a download from a Web site) a user can install that on his device.
AT&T has been sending e-mails warning users who are tethering their phones without paying the extra fee. AT&T charges $20 extra per month for the tethering feature. Customers who tether are given 4GB of data to use during the month. Customers who exceed that limit are charged $10 a gigabyte thereafter.
T-Mobile USA has the best value at $15 a month in addition to a smartphone data plan for 5GB worth of data per month. And Verizon Wireless charges $20 a month on top of its $30 smartphone data fee to use up to 2GB of data per month.
