Thanks again to Ford for sponsoring the show this week. We've been lucky enough to have this Fiesta all summer and Prager has been spotted driving it all over SF. One of the things we have not touched on too much about the Fiesta is safety...this bad boy has seven air bags (even one for the driver's knee) and 'AdvanceTrac ESC which is like traction control on steroids. AdvanceTrac will actually compare the angle of the steering wheel to how your wheels are spinning and apply brake or throttle to the necessary wheels to get you back on your intended course. Pretty cool. The Fiesta has technology that would put many more expensive cars to shame: it comes loaded with technology! Thanks again to Ford and the new Ford Fiesta, it's a pretty big deal!

Underground parking just got a new meaning! UK based firm, Cardock, has come up with this great idea for a world where people are constantly searching for more space. This underground garage accomplishes two important things: you can safely park your car with the push of a button saving space at the same time. Cars can even be parked on top of each other thus offering an efficient system for urban areas too.
Facebook Now Allows You To Download Your Information
Whoah. Until now there hasn't been a way to download info off of Facebook, but at today's Facebook event in Palo Alto, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced a feature that allows users to port their data from Facebook in a .zip file, "People own and have control over all info they put into Facebook and "Download Your Information" enables people to take stuff with them," says Zuckerberg.
