  1. Now this is a good one for debating. Do you think the lady in the Honda Shuttle is wrong, or its just the taxi driver being difficult? As shown on SG Road Vigilante's page, a clip shot by a Premier taxi driver, shows a lady in her Honda Shuttle blocking the drop off/pickup point of Katong Shopping Center on 7th of Aug 2020. The reason she is blocking everyone is that she wanted to reverse into the parallel lot beside the taxi but in order for her to do so, all the cars, including the taxi behind, her has to reverse. Now that can be quite a hassle to everyone... So without seeing the first part of this incident, could it be that the taxi driver was being difficult from the start and could have just reversed for her to go into the lot? Or do you guys reckoned that the Honda driver was just a little bit too self-entitled?

    Dyson, the New Kid on the Block

    Dyson developing an electric car, according to government documents The company last year refused to confirm they were working on a green vehicle, but a government plan on infrastructure suggests they are Dyson is developing an electric car at its headquarters in Wiltshire with help from public money, according to government documents. The company, which makes a range of products that utilise the sort of highly efficient motors needed for an electric car such as vacuum cleaners, hand dryers and bladeless fans, last year refused to rule out rumours it was building one. But on Wednesday, the government appeared to have accidentally disclosed Dyson is working on one, along with other big companies outside of the automotive industry, such as Apple. “The government is funding Dyson to develop a new battery electric vehicle at their headquarters in Malmesbury, Wiltshire. This will secure £174m of investment in the area, creating over 500 jobs, mostly in engineering,” said the National Infrastructure Delivery Plan, published on Wednesday. When Dyson CEO, Max Conze, was asked last year if the company was working on an electric car, he said: “We are ruling nothing out. Like our friends in Cupertino [Apple] we are also unhealthily obsessive when it comes to taking apart our products to make them better.” Dyson recently reported profits up 20% in 2015, driven by strong growth in China, and said it plans to invest £1bn in battery technology over the next five years. Last October, Dyson bought solid-state battery company, Sakti3, for $90m, which founder Sir James Dyson said had “developed a breakthrough in battery technology.” Asked if the company was, as the government suggested, developing an electric car, a Dyson spokesman said: “We never comment on products that are in development.” The Guardian has also contacted the Office for Low Emissions Vehicles, which encourages the roll-out of electric vehicles as a way to cut air pollution and lower carbon emissions, and is awaiting details on the exact level of funding. Dyson, 68, has a long history of inventions. He designed the Rotork Sea Truck, a fast cargo boat in 1970, which has been used by the military and is still sold today. In 1974, he designed the Ballbarrow, a barrow with a ball replacing the wheel, having been frustrated by wheelbarrows getting stuck in mud on a building site. His breakthrough was the bagless vaucum cleaner, which was inspired by air cyclones used in sawmills to suck up sawdust. Since then, he has created bladeless fans and the Airblade hand dryer. Many of Dyson’s devices use small, light and efficient electric motors developed over 10 years by his company, which may find application in developing a new electric car. Dyson is a now worth several billion pounds and in 2014 pledged his company would spend £1.5bn on research and development to create future products, aiming to launch 100 new electrical products by 2018. Dyson Reportedly Developing An Electric Car Of Its Own There are so many potential jokes, quips, and overall smartass remarks to be mined from the prospect of a vacuum cleaner company designing a car which, contrary to the firm’s essential business, doesn’t suck, that we’ll cut straight to the otherwise buried lead… Originally tipped by The Guardian, U.K. company Dyson is developing an electric car of its own at its headquarters in Wiltshire, England, and according to government documents, the Brits are publically funding the enterprise. Both the company and the government have yet to officially comment on the situation. The Guardian says a just-published National Infrastructure Delivery Plan revealed, likely by accident, “The government is funding Dyson to develop a new battery electric vehicle at their headquarters in Malmesbury, Wiltshire. This will secure £174m of investment in the area, creating over 500 jobs, mostly in engineering.” The newspaper further reports that Dyson bought solid-state battery company, Sakti3, for $90m last October, which founder Sir James Dyson said had “developed a breakthrough in battery technology.” In 2014 Dyson reportedly pledged his company would spend £1.5bn on research and development to create future products, with the lofty goal of bringing 100 new items to market by 2018. A big boost in the company’s favor in this regard is that its famed lineup of vacuum cleaners, bladeless fans and hand dryers not only incorporate cutting-edge electric motors, but come wrapped in revolutionary designs that essentially transform everyday household products into display-worthy items and enable Dyson to command premium prices for their wares. Substitute “home computer” for “vacuum cleaner” and “operating system” for “electric motors,” and that sounds a lot like Apple if you ask us.
  3. This Circuit Breaker sure has many people losing their temper after being cooped up at home. Check out this incident between a uncle in a wheelchair and another uncle in his Honda Vezel. Detail are scant but from what we can infer in the minute plus video that has been spotted on SG Road Vigilante, the owner of the Honda Vezel appears to have stopped his car in a no parking area. This in turn blocked the uncle that wanted to use ramp. With both having ego issues and not willing to give in, the whole incident nearly blew out of control with the Vezel owner nearing injuring the senior on the wheelchair by driving into him. Check out what the others have to say about this incident...

    Police Road Block

    Sometimes I see TP conducting roadblocks during daytime around those industrial estates or construction sites. What are they looking for? Is it illegal immigrants?

    Caller id (apps)

    previously I would answer an unknown number and then block it with the phone's in-built incoming number blocker. however, it will only still be recorded as a telephone with no details. until my colleague told me to d/l True Caller App .... I also downloaded the free version and now when unknown numbers come in, sometimes the name can be seen on the app. furthermore, some numbers which has been blocked by others and saved in the creator's database will be blocked automatically also. but with such convenience, the app will require some access rights which some might feel uncomfortable with again. anyone using other cold-call blockers that you feel can be recommended ?
  6. To the owner/driver of dark Toyota Camry, I witnessed and a video has captured in my in car camera, when a lorry reversed and ramp to your front left of the car. PM me if you need the footage. Time/Date/Venue as stated in subject.

  8. Encountered a police road block at about 1pm today outside Yo:ha@jurong. Cop waved me on, but I thought normally road blocks are carried out at night to nap drunk drivers? Saw some motorbikes being stopped by the roadside though.
  9. Hi bros, Need your feedback and advise. Recently, saw this symbol looks like an engine block appear on my instrument display. Look in the manual and it says " sent car to Toyota dealer" What exactly this symbol mean and is it a major problem to the car? I have not sent my car for checking yet. Have a nice day ahead.

    Love Gymkhana? They're at it again

    http://dai.ly/x12scfx The team behind the Ken Block's Gymkhana videos (Mad Media) is back with the vengeance - this time round, more brutal and daring (almost insane) in their venture. Polaris RZR XP 1000. What is it? From the same people who makes snowmobiles and motorcycles, it is a top-of-range Utility Task Vehicle (UTV) - think of it as a special ops vehicle, and it should make your viewing more pleasurable. A 1.0-litre with 107bhp may not sound a lot to begin with, but it will propel the RZR to 50km/h in a little over two seconds, and 80km/h in just 5.3 seconds. Apparently, Mad Media has created the video as part of the campaign for the launch of the new model. The UTV featured in the video, though, has been extensively modified. The team has roped in off-road truck racer and UTV champion RJ Anderson to pilot the end product. In our eyes, the stuns are definitely more mental than before, and should send some chills down your spine while at it. Enjoy the 10 full minute of wholesome entertainment.

  14. Planning to get a resale flat near Dawson, where the highest floor is 40. Wonder how is it like living in a place with several tall blocks & large number of apt units? Appreciate your kind feedback on the pros and cons. Thanks very much
  15. Noticed a couple of times at my GF place, people stop in the opposite direction (probably because of convenience) but leave their headlight on. The moment I turn in from the main road straight away kena blinded. Anyone encounter the same issue too?
  16. Barely six months after a corpse was found in a water tank on the roof of a Woodlands housing block, a Vietnamese woman was found dead at the foot of the same block. Chinese evening dailies Shin Min Daily News and Lianhe Wanbao reported that the victim, Truong Thi Ngoh Anh, 26, fell from Blk 686B, Woodlands Street 73, at around 2am this morning. She was found naked and died four hours later after she was rushed to the hospital. She is believed to have fallen from the sixth floor. The newspapers also reported that her bra, clothes and personal possessions such as a black handbag and a pink mobile phone were found near her body. It is not known how her belongings ended up at the bottom of the block. According to Lianhe Wanbao, Ms Truong does not live at the block and is in Singapore on a social visit pass. Shin Min Daily News claims that she is a prostitute. A resident living on the 14th floor and known only as Ms Lee, said that she heard a very loud crashing sound. "I was watching movies on my mobile phone and was plugged in to my earphones but I could still hear the sound, so you can imagine how loud it was," said Ms Lee. Police have classified the case as unnatural death and questioned a man living on the sixth floor. The man, who is in his 30s, was singled out by residents as he was frequently spotted bringing different women home in the middle of the night, reported Lianhe Wanbao. During investigations, he brought plainclothes officers to a rubbish dump at Blk 960C to look for evidence. Residents told Lianhe Wanbao that a family of five live at the man's house, including an old couple. They also said that the women he brings home are usually foreign young women who look Filipino or Chinese. Link

  18. The GRC which her estate is in is anchored by two heavy-weight cabinet ministers. Maybe it will finally be cleaned when the ministers conduct a visit? In any case, littering is quite a worrying issue in HDB estates and you can see cleaners doing their daily work clearing lift lobbies of bulky disued furnitures, fridges, etc and sweeping away tissues, sweet wrappers, ciggy butts, etc around blocks. From ST Forum: http://www.straitstimes.com/STForum/Online...ory_771293.html Slow to clean in this heartland block Published on Feb 28, 2012 WHILE I support and applaud the recent raise in salaries for cleaners in PAP town councils ('Town council cleaners get more pay now'; last Tuesday), I am dismayed by the state of my block of flats managed by the Sembawang Town Council. The littered corridors are often unswept and not cleaned; and strewn often with paper, fliers, cigarette butts and sweet wrappers, which are left there for days. Unfinished drinks and cup noodles left on staircases are uncleared for just as long and are equally a common sight. Certainly, uncivic residents - and non-residents - should be held to account but there is also no reason for trash and litter to be left uncleared for days, and sometimes for as long as a week. When I expressed my concerns to the town council, the reply was that the corridors of each floor should be swept daily. Apparently, that did not include my block. The council employee promised me that she would inform the town council management. But, one year later, the situation has not improved. Neighbourhood cleanliness should rank higher in the council's priorities. Lim Suyin (Ms)
  19. Dear all, Just to share with all of you to prevent another victim $ been suck away. This morning my ride was parked at block 186 along woodland Industrial Park E6. While waiting for my wife (Driving lesson) and having breakfast from 10.30am to 12.30pm, my ride was clamped by the premises management. I went to ask them for a reason and the man told me I have exceeded the grace period of 1 hr. I was puzzled and asked him where was the sign board. His reply was that there is a warning notice when I drive into the CP. I was like "WTF". I went to see the sign board which indicated only "Unauthorized, Indiscriminate or Illegally parked vehicles will be wheel clamped" BUT it doesnt indicate the grace period. :angry: I have no time to argue but to pay $100 for them to release the wheel clamp. Sway! :angry:

The Strait Times today reported that an investor paid $226,472,460 for a whole tower block (i.e. Tower 1A consisting of 83 units) at Reflections at Keppel Bay in 2007.
