This blog is still alive, just in semi-hibernation.
When I want to write something longer than a tweet about something other than math or sci-fi, here is where I'll write it.

I should have done more research.


Last Monday, I wrote a blog post about a production vehicle that Volkswagen would be releasing in China in 2012.

This is what I get writing a blog post based on an e-mail without doing any research.

The pictures are from 2009. The rumor then was it would be released in 2010.

You know, one of those marvelous future things that is always one year away?

Other stories on the Internet say the price would be closer to $25,000, which seems ridiculously high to me, but I'm a cheap bastard without a car right now. Yet other stories said it was just a one-off experiment and there were no plans to even show it at any of the jillion auto shows around the globe.

So once again, let me apologize about spreading a false alarm. I promise to do better homework in the future.
