RoundAboutShow #17 2010 Predictions

Every year on New Year’s Day we wake up in a pool of what we hope is our own vomit.  Staggering to our feet, we search for our pants, a shred of dignity and a cohesive, Zen-like theme.  In the process we also uncover a host of stories and news bites to fit that theme, however hungover or dehydrated they may be.  And whatever’s leftover, well, we talk about it anyway because it’s 2010!

Besides the obvious, like more ridiculous airport security hoops to jump through and enviro-nazis wailing about carbon and polar bears, what’s in store for the New Year?  Well, this week the RoundAbout crew plays prophet and tries to shed a little light on 2010.  The group reaches consensus on some of their predictions, but the automotive oracles are divided on other points – like Chrysler.  Even with imported new leadership, will the beleaguered automaker be able to pull through?  Has the new century smell worn off already after just one decade?  Find out on this week’s installment of RoundAbout!

RoundAboutShow #15 The Holiday Wishlist

Every week we hit-up the discount travel sites in search of the cheapest airfare around. During the hunt, we find a wide range of ticket prices and airlines, and maybe even a cohesive, Zen-like theme. All we want is to make it home for the holidays, and find a few off-putting news bites to fit the theme, but our flight was canceled due to bad weather and we’re stuck in the Minneapolis airport eating stale Cinnabons and sleeping on the floor. Meanwhile, visions of Spykers and Audis dance in our heads.

This week, with a few short buying days left in the holiday season, our esteemed panel assembles its holiday wishlist. Eric yearns for a Tag Heuer watch. Zach has a soft spot for an NSX. Craig asks that we donate to the Focus Fund. And Ben just wants a way to operate his iPhone's GPS without freezing his fingers off. Plus, ourBlind Spot story, the Lincoln MKT is In the Garage and an atrociously styled G6 inthis week's Highway Hearsay.
