Ford is back to sponsor the show again this week. We've shown you a bunch of footage of us using the Fiesta this summer... it's a lot of fun to drive and is packed with technology. Speaking of, one of the coolest things about the Fiesta is the SYNC technology and they are upping the antae every day. A few weeks ago Ford announced a collaboration with 'Tech-Shop', an open access workshop that provides creative minds access to work space, tools, and machinery to dream up and develop their latest inventions. Ford's collaboration with TechShop is centered around tapping ideas from outside the automotive space to come up with first to market new technologies such as SYNC and an example of Ford's overall open innovation model. We've had a lot of fun with the Fiesta and SYNC technology so far and, with things like their TechShop collaboration, we are excited to see what future innovations Ford has in store for us. Thanks again to ford for sponsoring this week.

The beer is placed inside a pocket of salty, pretzel-like dough and then dunked in oil at 375 degrees for about 20 seconds, a short enough time for the confection to remain alcoholic. When diners take a bite the hot beer mixes with the dough in what is claimed to be a delicious taste sensation.
