Says a leader of one of these project consultancies, “We were basically chartered as a shadow organization [to the IT group], like a backup plan in case shit hits the fan.” The backroom dealing and finger pointing and glory hogging slowed the ambitious project. “Almost half the work was to support a political situation,” says one executive at an NGE partner company. “At the beginning, we could move really rapidly, but when it got public within Disney, it changed the way we worked. It became more about fighting to survive another day.” The February 2012 target came and went. Be Our Guest More than 28,000 hotel doors needed their locks replaced in order to connect wirelessly with the MagicBand, even as some 80% of the rooms at Disneys resorts, on average, were occupied. Two dozen workers spent eight months upgrading 120 doors per day. The company rolled...

Why Making A Landyacht A Daily Driver In Europe Is The Best Thing Ever

Why Making A Landyacht A Daily Driver In Europe Is The Best Thing Ever

InterContinental Los Angeles Revamps Guestrooms And Suites Introducing New Room Types And A Fresh New Design I believe this was especially apparent in the American and Japanese auto industry in which, for two decades, boxy, often extremely conservative designs dominated the market in almost all segments. There have been plenty of exceptions with cars like the Corvette and sleek third gen F-bodies, and Ford was one of the very first manufacturers that embraced the aero look in their mass market cars with the ’83 Thunderbird and of course the ’86 Taurus. But it was the early nineties that saw a sudden, radical change across the whole industry, with the exception of Volvo, with the move towards more sporty, wind cutting and smooth designs like Chrysler’s cab-forward cars or Oldsmobile’s Aurora; and the renaissance of the american auto industry. At least for a short while. The Lincoln Mark VIII was part of that era. I love the sleek, uncluttered, no-bullshit design (looking at you, Lexus and Infiniti), the un-compromised, no-fucks-given proportions. Conversations in Lincoln’s Design Center around 1990 must have sounded like this: Head of Design Lincoln: “Maaan, the hell is dat sheeit, car looks all stubby and shit!” Designer: “You think the car needs to be longer?” Head of Design Lincoln: “Yeahh, gotta stretch that mothafucka.” Designer: “I don’t think I agree, its a 2 door coupe, that’s how they usually look like.

Now somebitch get me the number of dem head office mothafuckers, and tell my homie Bling Daddy to get Tanisha and the bitches for tonight, got lots work to do… And bitch wheres muh coke!?” Designer: “…” It is clear that volumetric efficiency wasn’t a high priority while designing the Mark VIII. There are plenty of other things to like about this car: the fantastic, characteristic american sound of its V8 engine. It is reasonably quick (0-60 somewhere between 6.5 and 7.5sec) and practical (there’s plenty of space in the trunk for the stereotypical mobster bodies with room to spare, as well as 3 passengers) and naturally its the perfect highway cruiser.

This particular Game Boy mod, also by Akira, sets out to be the Swiss Army knife of handhelds and succeeds.

It also sports a custom cartridge that flashes LEDs in time to game music, a pair of extra face buttons, built-in rechargeable batteries, the DS larger bottom screen, a massive extra speaker, and a custom case with accessories. R2-D2 Gaming Droid The gaming communitys interests regularly spill over into other forms of media; even Game Informer branches out and covers books, films, or board games once in a while. Occasionally, overlapping interests combine to make something special. Brian De Vitis R2-D2 Gaming Droid is just the kind of unique blend of video games and Star Wars worthy of being called special. Work on R2 began in 2007, as De Vitis, a mechanical engineer who now builds unmanned vehicles, began modifying an R2-D2 themed Pepsi cooler.
