2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid: 52 mpg and the darkness before dawn

OK, I don't often take a dive into the auto world, even though I make my living in the motorcycle world, but along with todays $17 billion bail out of Detroit's mess, the Pulitzer Prize winning auto writer for the LA Times has given us a piece on how Detroit gets it right, and then again, gets it wrong. The article is a review of the 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid. He likes it. Alot. But written in his inimitable style, Neil explains alot more than this cars performance. Check him out every Friday in the LA Times Business section. Well, as long as there is an LA Times,. But that's another story.

A new video from New York Times Magazine features the work of Robbie Cooper who photographed the faces of children as they played video games. These images of kids playing video games were created by Cooper, a British photographer who employed a Red camera — a very-high-resolution video camera — and then took stills from the footage. Cooper, who says he was inspired by the camera technique that Errol Morris used to interview people in his documentaries, arranged his equipment so that the players were actually looking at a reflection of the game on a small pane of glass. He placed the camera behind the reflection so that it could look directly into their faces as they played.
