Special thanks to FORD for helping make this live show happen!As you may have noticed, we have been driving the Fiesta around a bit... here's a few things that you might not know about it: the Fiesta comes loaded with technology, as much as many premium cars...a four inch multi function LCD display, push button start, keyless entry and SYNC. Sync technology takes things up a notch, we used it when driving this bad boy all over SF the past few days. With Sync you can control music, directions, maps, and much more WITH YOUR VOICE! It is one of the most sophisticated communications systems ever built into a vehicle. Aside from the technology this thing will save you some coin. The 2011 Fiesta gets 40 miles to the gallon, a number that bests over 20 hybrids on the market! In fact, with a Fiesta you can drive from San Francisco to LA on one tank of gas. Thanks again to Ford for bringing the Fiesta out and supporting the show!

We're thinking it too: this sounds crazy. Essentially, Apple is saying that the problem is how you hold your phone, and that the solution is to change that habit, or buy one of their cases. In Alex's words, this is Apple's "Red Ring of Death"!

Medical marijuana activists are hotly protesting plans by Cook County, Illinois, officials to burn more than 5,500 pounds of cannabis seized last week in a big pot bust. Police officers will undoubtedly have to oversee this event and observe the situation, just to make sure all the pot burns correctly. This story is close to Hippie Glenn's heart... at least he has his spandex jeans, right?
