iPad getting EVO, Octane, Top Gear magazines….

I’m a big fan of the iPad, even though i don’t own one yet.  The iPod Touch i have lost recently was one of the best little electronic devices i’ve ever owned; so versatile and useful.  I’m definitely getting an iPad, just not right now as i need a new laptop first!

The era of the ‘digital magazine’ is now upon us, and the UK magazines are coming to the iPad!

pricing @ Zinio:

EVO Magazine $4.96 ea. or subscription of 12 digital issues for $50.32
Octane Magazine $4.96 ea. or subscription of 12 digital issues for $50.32
Top Gear Magazine $5.27 per issue with no subscription available.

not a bad deal, considering that a physical subscription often runs like $90 on these imported magazines.  Plus you get to have them on your iPad for further easy access! VERY COOL! i’m sure this is just the beginning.  Still haven’t heard anything about my favourite UK car mag Car though.

Peugeot 505 and the Sterling 825 SL

In 1987, my mum ALMOST bought a Peugeot 505. However ever since then, i’ve always had a huge soft spot for that car….because even back then, i really wanted that car.  I thought it was beautiful when i was a kid.  I loved the weird front lights, and the nicely proportioned design.  I still think the car looks really damn good……for its age.

Oddly enough, the car she DID buy instead of the Peugeot 505 was another car that i really wanted…….*drumroll*…….a Sterling 825 SL! Remember those? yeah that’s right, an Acura Legend with a british interior, electronics, and styling…..the first car I ever crashed and the first car I ever lost control of going too fast……fun car to drive, but quite an oddball.  I still remember how that car’s steering got SUPER stiff at high speeds (over 90 mph), as if its power steering had failed—-but it was actually just a performance measure.  Nice interior…pretty posh for an 80s car.
