Switching from Chrome to Firefox

I don’t know when I maybe the full jump but 5~7 years ago I switched from Firefox to Chrome.  I am die hard google fan boy if you will, I love chrome and it’s integration with the apps and services that I use the most.  Lately I have been getting quite a few crashes with Chrome, and overall slowness in browsing the web and video.  I thought is was my internet connection or router and went down that path to…

The Alfa romeo 4C is just not worth it.

The Alfa romeo 4C is just not worth it.

Alfa spent a lot of money building the 4C.  And in turn they are going to charge you a lot of money for the privilege of owning one. In the US the first 500 will cost over $70,000.  Why the high price for a stripped out go kart? First is the name this is the first car with the Alfa name to be sold in the USA for ages. Second is this car is carbon fiber and it costs a…
