  1. Aston Martin will be celebrating the James Bond Heritage by dressing up two Red Bull cars with the 007 logos on their cars. These logos will appear at the British Grand Prix at Silverstone. Other than the 007 logo, the Formula 1 cars will also get a decal of the Bond number plates on the back of their rear wings. Max Verstappen will be featuring the plate from the Aston Martin DB5 in Goldfinger (1964), while Pierre Gasly’s car will feature the Aston Martin V8 number plate from The Living Daylights (1987). To complete the look, the team’s pit garage will also feature wall graphics inspired by Q’s MI6 laboratory. Aston Martin cars have always been connected to the James Bond franchise since its beginnings. Through the years, Bond got to drive many models, such as the V8 Vantage Volante, the DB10, the DBS and the iconic DB5.
  2. Nokia brings back iconic 8110 'banana phone' Feb 26, 2018 BARCELONA/HELSINKI - Seeking to capitalise on their comeback over the past year, the makers of Nokia phones are expanding to include a premium Android smartphone, their first, and a remake of one of its biggest hits of the 1990s, the 8110 "slider" phone. Set up by ex- Nokia executives who have licensed the famous brand, HMD Global - as the year-old company is known - has focused on mid-priced Androids and even sub-$100-priced phones since entering the smartphone market. Chief Executive Florian Seiche said HMD has sold around 30 million phones after introducing 11 new phone models over the past year. On Sunday, it announced two new models, plus refreshed versions of three phones first offered last year. "We feel great about the momentum we had in 2017 and that gives us the confidence to double down in 2018," Seiche told reporters at a briefing in London ahead of the product launch. Mobile phone market tracker Counterpoint Research said Nokia phones surged during 2017 to become the world's No. 1 seller of low-cost feature phones and No. 11 in smartphones after only entering the market last year. On a combined basis, Nokia now ranks as the No. 6 mobile phone seller, Counterpoint calculates. HMD's strategy is to use distribution partnerships with 600 top mobile operators and retailers in selected markets around the world to offer reliable, affordable products with the latest innovations, plus monthly Google security updates on all phones. Europe remains the biggest region for Nokia phones sales, Seiche said; India, Russia and Indonesia are its biggest country markets. The Nokia 8 is the company's flagship phone, priced at 749 euros (S$1,215) and designed to compete with Samsung's and Huawei's premium models. A new, 4G-ready version of Nokia's 8110 is priced at 79 euros. Nokia 8 is available in April, the revamped 8110 in May. The 1990s throwback model comes in two colour choices, classic black or banana yellow, a play on how its keyboard slid out, inspiring the nickname "banana phone". Nokia Corp, once the world's dominant phone maker, sold its handset business to Microsoft in 2014 and is now focused on telecom network equipment. HMD took over the Nokia feature phone business from Microsoft in 2016 and struck a deal with Nokia Oyj to use the brand on smartphones. http://www.asiaone.com/digital/nokia-phones-look-future-and-past?xtor=EREC-16-4[Emarsys_Newsletter]-20180226&extid=6934d0cfb7b252f1ae9f0dbddf5ff88ca8637e77

    Iconic 1980 Lancer 1.4SL

    Good to see an iconic Lancer in the resale market. This Lancer came in 3 models - 1.4GL (4 speed manual, without tacometer), 1.4SL (5 speed manual, with tacometer) and 1.6M (5 speed with tacometer, shared same engine as Galant 1.6). The 1.4l model was the top seller from 1979 to 1982. The Toyota Corolla 1.3 did not even come close. It was the most spacious in its class. But the *Lancer F 1.2 replacement model in 1983 was a failure and sales dropped drastically. *Refered to as 3rd generation Lancer Fiore in hyperlink below: http://jambu2011.blogspot.sg/2011/09/generation-by-generation-mitsubishi.html It came with skinny 155/80R13 stock tyres. Many owners upgraded to 175/70R13 tyres. It came without power steering and you need brutal muscles to navigate a parking lot. Power in 1st gear was non existent. Rev till 4000rpm + , and the car accelerates to 20km/h max. 4000rpm on 2nd gear gets you to 40km/h. Significant power comes only in 3rd gear. That is based on only the driver on board. Today's 998cc Perodua Kelisa can anytime beat this Lancer in a 0-100km/h sprint with minimal effort. But there is no way I will pay $23,800 for this Lancer. Grossly underpowered, hard gearshift, no driving pleasure and a fuel guzzler at 10km/l for a 1.4l N.A. engine. And you need to add lead additive during every top up. Using unleaded petrol leads to significant loss of power. http://www.sgcarmart.com/used_cars/info.php?ID=393718&DL=2548

  6. Link Cleopatra, Cixi wrong choice as iconic women MEDIACORP is currently promoting its Singapore Women's Month through regular television and radio spots. The four iconic women it has chosen to front the promotion include Queen Cleopatra of Egypt and Empress Dowager Cixi of China (Mother Teresa and US aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart are the other two). To state that Cleopatra saved Egypt with her beauty is as sexist as it is absurd. One might just as well say that Pocahontas saved the American Indians with her naivete. Cleopatra indeed seduced Julius Caesar with her feminine charms but in her historic role, she was proven more a political player with obvious self-advancing motives than a self-sacrificing saviour of her kingdom. After Caesar's assassination, her charms were next applied on Mark Antony whom she dropped just as quickly when fate instead favoured Octavian. Ancient Egypt thus became a Roman province and she ended the line of pharaohs when she finally sought the company of an asp. More ludicrous is the assertion that Cixi ruled China with her strength (and wisdom in the Chinese spots). Even after one discounts her commonly perceived traits of cruelty, selfishness, corruption and debauchery, Cixi's rule did little to advance the imperial fate of China. Endowed with an 'arsenic' will to stay in power, Cixi schemed extensively to be the de facto force in the Qing court, out-manoeuvring ministers, princes and even emperors. Her penchant for luxury had her building lavish palaces at a time when China was on the brink of bankruptcy and the population was living in abject poverty. She actively squashed all manner of Western reforms when they were most needed, and with little grasp of the gravity of China's gross inadequacy during the colonial era, she even threw in her weight behind the ill-fated Boxer Rebellion, to drastic consequences. Having pulverised all prospects of restoration for the Qing, she departed with just a tot (the toddler Puyi) in station, setting the scene for the final stage of dynastic destruction that would let loose decades of civil strife and suffering in China. Iconic these women may be, but I believe we have others in human history to select from for better representation. The sentiments may be right but the facts and presentation are plainly wrong.
