-Well for starters, the iPhone 4s has an upgraded camera that delivers 8 MP (1080p) HD video recording as oppose to 5MP with (720p) of video recording in the previous model.

-iPhone 4s comes with A5 Dual Processor chip.

Bring back the Honda Accord Hybrid

May I ask? Whatever happened to the Honda Accord Hybrid. It’s estimated fuel economy were 25 mpg in the city, and 33 mpg on the highway. Most importantly though, Honda wanted to go to a different approach when they created the Honda Accord V6 Hybrid. This Hybrid vehicle in particular was the worlds first performance hybrid sedan during the year of 2005. Some people complained that Honda could have done much better in the fuel economy segment, but getting much better fuel economy out a V6 other than an all petrol V6, I would not complain. Besides, who would want to turn down the performance factor that this car offered. It is a shame that Honda discontinued this model, and have no plans of bringing it back anytime soon. Judging that the Accord Hybrid was only offered in a V6, Honda may have a better opportunity next time by offering a I4 cylinder as well, in order to compete well with Toyota Camry Hybrid, and among others.

Verizon iPhone

Many argue over which has better service and wireless reception. Well, Verizon and the iPhone have finally collaborated and came up with, “Verizon iPhone 3G.” For the people who already have a iPhone, but on the AT&T network, will this make many people drop their AT&T service plan for the Verizon 3G wireless. There has been many desperate reports of iPhone users who are willing to drop their AT&T plan, but didn’t want any other phone than the iPhone. Now, that is no longer the case, because having a Verizon iPhone in stores. This will give consumers the opportunity to decide what is best for them. However, just because there is now a Verizon iPhone, don’t expect it to be any different than the AT&T model. The only difference is its calling quality, thanks to Verizon, and another fact that Verizon doesn’t have drop calls. Other than that, the Verizon iPhone is identical to its AT&T counterpart, but there is one difference in data speeds. Reviewers argue that Verizon device are indeed slower than AT&T’s, but speeds are also always more consistent, and Verizon’s reception is more readily available.

Buick Regal GS

Ignoring the GNX, the 255-hp 2012 Buick Regal GS is the most powerful turbo Buick to come out of GM, and it starts with an inline-4. Surprisingly, it isn’t a V6.

The engine powering this Opel in Buick clothes is a 2.0-liter Ecotec four-cylinder. The engine has direct fuel injection, variable valve timing on intake, exhaust, and a redline of 6,350 rpm. This is good for 255 hp at 5,300 rpm and 295 pound-feet of torque at 2,500-4,000 rpm. Thanks to a 3-inch exhaust, higher boost and a tune, this is 35 hp more than the same engine sitting in the Regal CXL.

Mike Anderson, Ecotec global chief engineer and program manager, has compared this engine favorably to larger V6 power plants. “We’ve been combining direct injection and variable valve timing with boosted engines since 2006, and there’s no question the Regal GS turbo has the responsiveness and acceleration of a 3.5-liter V6, while delivering the fuel economy of a 2.0-liter four.”

2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI

 

With 305 horsepower already on tap from the STI’s turbocharged flat-four, there wasn’t much need for more power, so Subaru’s engineers focused on what needed help the most: the suspension and on-road handling. The upgrades made to create the 2010 STI Special Edition were only the beginning; the ’11 STI goes further with an even more aggressive suspension to reduce body roll and create more neutral handling. Compared with last year’s STI, the ride has been lowered and both the front and rear anti-roll bars have been beefed-up in diameter by 1 mm. Stiffer springs—to the tune of 15.6 percent in the front and 53 percent in the rear—are installed, as are more rigid rear sub-frame bushings and new pillow-ball bushings in the front. Subaru says that extensive testing on the Nürburgring resulted in crisper handling while maintaining a livable ride.

Beyond its new sedan body style, the STI gains some other aesthetic tweaks for 2011. Like the ’11 WRX, the grille is revised, the bumpers are more aggressive, and the fog lights are blacked-out. But differentiating the STI from the lesser WRX is the huge rear spoiler—Subaru says it enhances high-speed stability and helps achieve zero aerodynamic lift—and polished quad tailpipes. New standard 18-inch wheels are said to save a total of 17.6 pounds over the old rims. BBS-brand 18s will continue to be optional, and both rollers will come wearing summer-only 245/40 Dunlop SP600 rubber. The 2011 Subaru WRX STI sedan will be now available in a sedan, and its well known hatch back design.
