The Ease and Power of the 2012 Cadillac SRX

It will not be too much of a challenge to get a great vehicle to work with speed and efficiency when the 2012 Cadillac SRX is used. This vehicle is strong and knows how to work with its engine. It is also made with an appealing inside that is comfortable without any issues getting in the way of how it works. I especially like how it is easy to handle without worrying about issues getting in the way.

Moves strong

It is not too difficult for me or other drivers to get the Cadillac SRX to move around quickly. The V6 engine works with direct injection. This is used to help improve the functionality of the engine. In fact, the vehicle even works with different functions in mind. This includes the Eco mode that works to add a slight bit to the gas mileage on the vehicle. This may work to help conserve energy in the car.

The fact that it does not require high-end fuel is a plus as well. This is useful for those who want a strong vehicle without fuel issues. I prefer this feature because I clearly don’t see why I should pay twenty cents more per gallon than what others pay.

Easy to control

The functions for controlling the vehicle are easy to handle. It works with traction and stability control features that operate automatically without worrying about the vehicle moving around or being too difficult to maintain properly. This is a convenient point that helps to make the vehicle all the more useful for anyone who wants a great ride.

Of course, the airbags can also work to keep people controlled in a wreck. Front and side airbags are used in this vehicle. This helps to protect the people in the vehicle from dealing with difficult issues that involve moving around the vehicle when traveling. This is a big point that needs to be seen when finding a good vehicle like the SRX.

A great interior

The outside is a relatively impressive point to see as well. This interior features a wood finish that is well refined and smooth to create a good design that works to help create a comfortable look. It also includes a simple navigation and functioning device that is easy to read and control without too many issues getting in the way of things. This will work without too many obstructions getting in the way of what is going on in the front or back of the vehicle. This works well for me so I can have a good time driving this car with just as much enjoyment with getting different vehicle points handled.


Engine – 3.6L V6, 308 hp
Fuel usage – 17 mpg city, 24 mpg highway
Tyres – 18 inches

Bill Gates to Speak in Billion Dollar Lawsuit

I’m not sure how much money Bill Gates has because but I am sure that he has several billions of dollars. Therefore, it surprises me to see that there is a lawsuit that is worth one billion dollars in value against Gates. There is a large lawsuit going on between Gates and the creator of the WordPerfect program.

What is going on?

The story behind this lawsuit is that Novell, the group that formed the WordPerfect program, had sued Microsoft in the past. This was because Microsoft had been accused of violating antitrust laws when it had sold Windows 95. This was due to the way how WordPerfect program was sold alongside other types of programs in the same function. This is a serious concern because Novell was said to have lost a little over a billion dollars in value when it sold off the WordPerfect program.

Gate’s opinion

The opinion that comes with Gates is that Novell was not able to get a Windows 95-supported edition of WordPerfect ready in time. Also, Gates says that the Word program that has been used in Window over the years is an improvement over the WordPerfect program. I think this is kind of a form of bravado on Gates’ part by saying that this is a huge improvement but at the same time this is an interesting point that needs to be seen with regards to how the program is being handled.

Why is this so notable?

The reason why this is a big deal is that it involves a great amount of money but also because it involves the control that Word has over the market in terms of what is going on with word processing. It is clear that WordPerfect had been the key program for a while but Microsoft has broken the deal with the program when Word came out. As a result, Word is now the dominant program for word processing while WordPerfect has become so unpopular that Novell has lost a large amount of money in the process.

I understand that this is a big issue but the thing is that this is a lawsuit that will certainly be a challenge to handle. I would not be surprised if Novell won the suit but then again it is not as though Gates and Microsoft are going to be impacted heavily by the suit. After all, Microsoft already has billions of dollars as it is and should not deal with any serious issues in terms of how the suit is handled.

AT&T to Offer Galaxy Tab 8.9 4G from Nov. 20 for $480

I have been trying to find different 4G devices but it has been a real challenge to get something useful. However, I am looking for a good tablet that can handle 4G. AT&T seems to have answered my desire for this great function. AT&T is getting its brand new edition of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 4G ready on November 20. This is a Samsung tablet that features a unique and useful series of functions that help to make it all the more useful and beneficial for anyone who wants to get more handled out of their tablets. However, there is a good amount of money required for getting this tablet handled.

What’s in the tablet?

The Galaxy Tab 8.9 4G has a series of different things that make it appealing and useful. It uses the Android 3.2 Honeycomb operating system. It also works with an 8.9-inch screen that supports high-definition signals and video functions. The rear camera is 3.2 megapixels in resolution with a 2 megapixel camera working on the front of the device.

The tablet can handle a large amount of data. It uses 16 GB of memory with support to get it to move up to 32GB. This works well with the 1.5 GHz dual core processor and 1 GB RAM that it has.

What about the 4G?

The 4G support that is used on the Galaxy Tab 8.9 4G is a strong point to see. The 4G support works to help link people to the fastest mobile Internet signals. This works on AT&T’s 4G LTE network. It is going to be open in fifteen markets as of the time when the new tablet comes out on November 20 and is expected to be accessible to at least fifty million people around the United States in the near future. It is not available where I am at the moment but I expect it to become more popular. After all, it is being used in Puerto Rico right now. It certainly should come to where I am and maybe where you are.

What is the cost?

The cost of the Galaxy Tab 8.9 4G with AT&T support is critical to think about. The cost will be around $480 to get. Also, the tablet will have to be handled with a special commitment plan. A two year commitment with AT&T must be used for the data and 4G LTE plan. This will cost $15 for 250 MB of data every month. A user can go with either $25 for 2 GB each month or $35 for 3 GB each month. The option should be considered by anyone with regards to average usage time.

The use of the Galaxy Tab 8.9 4G will be great to see because of the power of the tablet and the support that AT&T will be giving for its system. However, it helps to think about the cost that comes with the tablet. The cost will vary by each individual tablet that one can get and should be reviewed as carefully as possible

What the 2012 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Features

I don’t know of too many car companies that are quite like Alfa Romeo. One of the newest cards from Alfa Romeo for prospective buyers to take a look at is the 2012 Alfa Romeo Giulietta. This is a new vehicle that will feature a series of different things that will make it unique. It is not only useful and functional for all kinds of needs but it is also more affordable than some of the other models on the road that Alfa Romeo has been making in recent years.

A big return

One of the things that make me excited about the Giulietta isn’t so much the features of the vehicle but rather the fact that this vehicle is being reintroduced to some markets. This is thanks in part to Chrysler’s involvement with Alfa Romeo. This has made it so Alfa Romeo can return to markets like the United States where Alfa Romeo has not been easy to find or even marketed to people.

A simple design

The vehicle is one that will be affordable for anyone to handle. It is a five seat hatchback that has been made with a great system that involves economy driving in mind. It is made with an affordable series of materials that work for the typical driver to enjoy. Some of the best features of this include a turbo four engine that is fast for anyone to work with for typical driving needs.

Custom controls

It is easy to get the seating and other features controlled in accordance to the needs that a person has. The Giuletta features the Alfa DNA system. This works to set up the driving position of a person with regards to seat position and where the steering wheel is. This is used to create a great design that is easy for anyone to drive with without any issues in the way. I like this feature because when I drive a car I usually deal with other people calling shotgun. This is why it helps for me to find something that works with different options.

There are some other great points to find as well. There are LED lights in the vehicle that work to handle sight with ease. There is also a design on the vehicle that works with a curve with scallops around the hood to create a more aerodynamic and visually appealing design. These features are used to create something attractive and interesting to see when on the road. The weight of the vehicle is also about two thousand pounds, making it so it will not take up too much mass or be difficult to accelerate. In fact, the vehicle’s acceleration works to get anyone to speed quickly.

Engine – 1.7L turbo four engine
Top speed – 251 km/h
Acceleration – 0 to 100 km/h in 6.5s
Tyres – 19 inches
Transmission – six speed automatic or dual clutch automatic
Other features – adjustable seats, LED lights,
Price - $28,000
