Yes, there is probably another collection of the less famous cars ready for comments.
And a lot of those cars had really neat features, and now that I consider it, maybe Bond's car never got dusty, either. But I don't believe that he ran up and down all those dirt roads. The clean "general" is still amazing.
I, too, have seen all these movies, bobjengr (except for the two that haven't come out yet). Admittedly, I've seen several of them multiple times. And, yes, I can't get enough of the Bullitt chase scene.
I'm almost embarassed to admit this Charles but I've seen all of those movies. The cars are definitely classics but my favorites are the "rides" from Bullett, Back to the Future and the Bond movies. It's amazing how autos play into action movies and sometimes carry the movie itself. The best "chase scene" ( in my opinion) is the one from Bullett. Excellent post.
Although it was 0on TV, not in the movies, the car that I think was the neatest is the "general Lee", from "the Dukes of Hazzard". Not because of perfomance, but because the car could race hundreds of miles on dirt raods and always arrive perfectly clean. I really want a car that can do that!
In an age of globalization and rapid changes through scientific progress, two of our societies' (and economies') main concerns are to satisfy the needs and wishes of the individual and to save precious resources. Cloud computing caters to both of these.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
