Ford shows new Hybrid Concept car (pics)

US auto giant Ford has unveiled a new concept that offers a glimpse at its new global design language.

The Ford Evos, set to premiere at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, is a fastback four-door concept that packs futuristic technology with several styling elements that are also likely to debut in future Ford models.

With a relatively standard lithium-ion plug-in hybrid engine, the bulk of Evos's technology is personal, with Ford saying that it wanted to produce a personalized experience that linked drivers with the cloud.That means that the car recognizes each driver, automatically adjusting hadling, steering and engine controls accordingly, as well as cuing music or news programs that it knows the driver was listening to before they got into the vehicle.

After learning driver habits, the vehicle amalgamates them with data such as terrain and weather to fine-tune engine, steering and braking performance, as well as minimizing the amount of time that the engine spends burning fuel on the journey (switching to all-electric mode, for example, if it senses that the journey is a standard short commute).

As Ford has previously suggested, it is still working on health management systems, showcasing a heart-rate monitor and air-quality sensors that can suggest a better route if the driver is known to suffer from allergies.

A trapezoidal grille, similar to those used by Audis and Aston Martins, adds a 'premium' look, while a section of the roof is glazed, a nod to Ford's popular Vista Roof option.

The most striking aspect of pictures released so far, however, are the four full gullwing doors, which scissor upwards to allow easy entry to the vehicle.

The model will be on display from September 15-25 at the Frankfurt International Motor Show in Frankfurt, Germany

Man Crush: David “Wolfman” Williams

I wonder if his rugby team has an opening for a towel boy position, because David looks like he needs a new towel.

JYJ to file case vs KBS over jeju Island campaign

MANILA, Philippines – K-pop trio JYJ, composed of Xiah Junsu, Kim Jaejoong and Micky Yoochun, will file a complaint against Korean TV station KBS for canceling the group’s scheduled TV appearance aimed at promoting Jeju Island to be one of the New 7 Wonders of the World.

This is the latest issue on the saga involving JYJ, which has been banned by Korean TV stations from appearing on entertainment shows in Korea due to the group’s lawsuit against SM Entertainment.
Despite a standing court injunction, which allows JYJ to hold their own activities without interference from SM Entertainment, Korean TV stations have sided with the agency and prohibited JYJ from TV appearances including promoting their music on music shows since last year.
JYJ was earlier appointed by the Jeju Island local government as honorary ambassadors to campaign and encourage people to vote for the island’s bid to be one of the New 7 Wonders of the World. Jeju Island is one of the 28 finalists for the selection.
As part of the campaign, JYJ was supposed to appear in a special TV show on July 20. However, C-JeS Entertainment, JYJ’s agency, said that on July 16, they received a notice that JYJ’s appearance was canceled. They were replaced by Girls Generation and f(x).
With this, JYJ is set to file a complaint before the Korean Fair Trade Commission (FTC) and consider other legal options against KBS.
C-JeS said it seems that JYJ was only used to promote Jeju Island in the campaign.
“Also, C-JeS Entertainment will file a complaint to the Fair Trade Commission about the organizer’s act to unilaterally cancel JYJ’s appearance, without any prior agreement, just four days before the event. We will also take appropriate legal procedures over this fraudulent act where the artist (JYJ) was used as ambassadors under the agreement of appearing on the special TV show, only to get forcefully cancelled without prior notice,” according to the C-JeS statement as translated by
In 2009, Junsu, Jaejoong and Yoochun, who at the time were part of boy band TVXQ, sued SM Entertainment to annul their exclusive contracts. They formed their own group, JYJ, and hired C-JeS to manage their careers.
No final decision has been issued by the Korean court that is hearing the case.
