It's been a big summer for Ford: not only did the company reach its emissions goal eight years early in June, it also partnered with Baidu, a Chinese internet company, in order to make your smart car even smarter. In Ford Motor Company's annual sustainability report, the company revealed that it has hit its lowered emissions goal eight years earlier...
When I was a kid, I had a couple of slot car sets along the way, and while I can't remember what the brands were, I sure remember the TYCO commercials that used to run each and every Christmas season, always teasing some new kind of fast-paced action, sometimes with added flair like glow-in-the-dark or up-the-wall action.
