Things to understand about cyber security:

1. locality is irrelevant and identity is shroudable
2. attack is much easier than defense
3. certain classes of cyber attack, including most zero-day exploits, can break all instances of the same system at the same time. For example, while it would take two separate missiles to destroy two separate predator drones, a single software vulnerability could be exploited by a virus to breach and disable both missiles simultaneously. With the right pre-planning, certain kinds of attacks can prevent access to the device owner once breached

List of what measure would and wouldn't work to secure self-driving vehicles against hacking - basically build a "safety module" in, that is controllable by the government, so the vehicle can be shut down safely. No discussion of the 1984 implications of that.

America finally gets Honda’s best: The 2018 Civic Type R | Ars Technica
With wings, vents, scoops, and 306 horsepower, it's a wolf in wolf's clothing.
Type R-ism has long been vacant in the American car world. Used but once before, on the holy Acura Integra Type R (sold as a Honda in Europe and Asia), Honda has reserved its sharpest tools for other markets. But that stops now: the new Civic Type R is the very first Honda to wear the R badge in America, and it's here to fight its bigger and more established competitors. There's no mistaking how and where on the grand automotive scale the new Civic Type R is placed, even for the casual layperson. With a prominent splitter, wing, roof spoiler, air-channeling lumps and vents, and the curious three exhaust tips, it's replete with boy-racer visuals.
But this boy arrives with the right tools. Tucked under the cornucopia of aero and design appendages sit some drop-dead serious bits of hardware that check all the boxes. But there's a far more elusive and important box that this car manages to check—one of mechanical harmony.

Driving the posted speed limit in the interstate carpool lane is OK | The News Tribune
Q: When traveling in the HOV lane at the posted speed limit, are you required to move over to the next lane to your right to allow speeding motorists to pass you? Or are they required to move over to the next lane to go around you and then return to the HOV lane? — Linda
...According to Sgt. James Prouty of the Washington State Patrol, if you’re following all the rules of the carpool lane — for starters, having the required number of passengers and none of them are blow-up dolls — and driving the posted speed limit, you don’t need to move out of the way for people behind you who want to go faster.
“They can move out of the lane to be courteous, but if they are traveling at the posted speed limit in the HOV lane and adhering to all restrictions, then they are not required to move out of that lane,” Prouty said...

Tesla owner attempts Autopilot defense during DUI stop | Ars Technica
A Tesla owner had a blood alcohol concentration at twice the legal limit and passed out behind the wheel. When he was approached by the police, he tried to argue that it was okay because his Tesla had autopilot. Needless to say, he has been charged with a DUI. Interesting to note that the car may have saved lives, since it automatically comes to a gradual stop if the driver's hands are taken off of the wheel.

A History of Mazda’s Boundaries-Pushing Sedans | Inside Mazda

The 2018 Mazda 6 Signature Shows Way Forward for Mazda | Inside Mazda
Adding a “Signature” trim was a risky proposition for Mazda. When Mazda’s marketing and vehicle managers kicked off the second-generation Mazda CX-9 crossover SUV program, they aimed higher than they ever had in the U.S. Here was a concerted, North American-led effort to move Mazda to a higher plane.
Everyone knew that the cars and crossover SUVs were standouts in their classes. Now, there was a trim level to prove it—and to take premium automakers on at their own game.

Six Ways Technology Improves the 2018 Mazda6 Sedan | Inside Mazda
Advanced technology has become more and more important in new cars. Take the new 2018 Mazda6 for example. It hosts many new features that help make the driver and passengers more comfortable and focused on the driving experience, while at the same time keeping them connected to the outside world.
Here are six top technology features that further improve this impressive midsize sedan for 2018.
A new-to-Mazda feature is the available bird’s-eye view monitor, showing all sides of the Mazda6 during reversing and parking maneuvers. The 2018 Mazda6’s 360⁰ View Monitor utilizes four separate cameras to give the driver an accurate picture of the car and its immediate surroundings around the car. Additionally, eight separate parking sensors detect front and rear proximity to obstacles and sound an alarm if the car is getting too close to obstacles.

The first Bugatti Chiron in the US is very yellow
No better place to deliver it than Pebble Beach, I suppose.
The Bugatti Chiron is one of the most intricate vehicles available for purchase. It makes sense, then, that the first US delivery would take place during one of the year's most prestigious automotive events.
Bugatti delivered its first US-spec Chiron to its owner at the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, part of the Monterey Car Week celebration. Approximately 30 percent of Chiron orders come from the US, and with a price tag of $2.998 million, it's clearly no small order. Only 500 will be built worldwide, and already, over half have been sold.

The 1500 Horsepower Bugatti Chiron Goes and Sounds Like a Jet Plane! | DriveTribe
I filmed the amazing Bugatti Chiron going up the hill flat out at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. This one looks particularily cool, with the two-tone blue color scheme. This beast is powered by a 1500 horsepower quad turbo W16 engine which sounds like a jet plane preparing to take off!

Kia Destroys A Lamborghini | DriveTribe
Say you're shopping around for a new Lamborghini Aventador, you might want to also consider the new Kia Forte. That's what Kia Motors America would like you to think, in this very tongue in cheek video about their all new compact sedan, the Kia Forte. They have cleverly stated what we've known all along about supercars: They're not at all practical. When it comes to transporting your kids around, grabbing groceries, and just doing everyday things, the six figure supercars get utterly destroyed by normal commuter cars that have been specifically designed to make your life better.
Kudos to Kia for making a fantastic video and making us gearheads chuckle for a little bit.
