Hyundai Genesis Coupe wraps around a pole, airbags fail

Fortunately, the Koreans were the first ones to get the Hyundai Genesis Coupe.  That means they can get all the bugs out hopefully and then ship them over to us.  After hearing about this, I hope they fix the airbags and tweak the handling.

Some unlucky guy got his hands on his Genesis Coupe and took it to the limit and ended up wrapped around a pole.  The Brembo breaks didn’t hold up and neither did the front end of that 2.0T.

So Hyundai, what do you have to say about this?

Bang & Olufsen: BeoSound 5 hits the market next year

Call this what you want, but calling it a “remote” would be an understatement.  Bang & Olufsen is known for their ultra-luxurious and ultra-expensive audio systems.  They realize the shift from entertainment systems to digital storage.  The BeoSound 5 bridges the gap and increases functionality more than most other units on the market.

The unit is controlled by the BeoSound 5 controller that boasts a 10.4-inch XGA LCD and an aluminum scroll wheel. On the back end there’s a 500GB BeoControl 5 music server running Windows XP Embedded with internet connectivity and patent pending intelligent playlist creation. Naturally there are outputs and inputs galore, and it’s not just for audio: the box pumpts out DVI-I and HDMI, and can play back plenty of video formats. B&O is staying ultra-exclusive, too.  The unit has a price tag of £3,500 tag (about $5,262 US) and will release in March 2009.
