Seriously pple, I find it amazing that so many of you are getting so excited about the release of a brand new ‘old car’! Seriously the new Vios is slower than the old Dugong, constuction is still equally tin can, and it cost significantly more than the Dugong Think about it, if you own a Vios now, you throw it away and buy the same car again?! Can that year 2001 1NZ-FE 1.5L be even competitive in today’s world? 4AT?! No paddle shifters? The aircon, even the top of the line auto climate control version, still can’t direct airflow to the feet area. Its a bluntant cost cutting measure by Toyota period. And I still don’t see how that old 1st gen Vios chassis can be made competitive in 2014! This new Vios is still built on the original Vios chassis, which in turn was nothing more than a stretch early 2000s Yaris chassis. And in today’s world where everyone talks about offering more safety features in cars, the new Vios still cant be had with 6 airbags… and one have to buy a high spec model to enjoy rear disc brakes.:( The new Vios G model is selling for the same price as the new Forte K3! Some kind of a joke right? We can’t even get factory HU in SG market Vios Brand loyalty is one thing, but being blind and pay through your nose just to stick to a sinking brand is ridiculous. Our local spec Forte K3 has everything in the book. Until Vios starts to offer 6 airbags, factory reverse cam, lane departure warning, VSC/traction control, 6AT with paddle shifters, Valvematic engine, auto parking system, auto HID headlamps/wipers, 17″ wheels etc… while still be able to pull 14km/L, then its worth the $$…
Professor Igor Panarin became a minor celebrity in Russia when he first unveiled his grim prediction for the future of the United States, which was widely covered by Russian state media and treated as credible. Panarin said the United States would break apart under internal strain and form four different countries, with only one wholly independent while the others fell under foreign influence or control. I’ve included it both for a taste of how the United States is sometimes perceived abroad and to give American readers a sense for what it can feel like to have the outside world get your country so wildly wrong.
I never thought a truck-driving simulator could be fun, but Euro Truck Simulator 2 proved me wrong. There is something soothing in watching the world go by from the high and mighty cockpit of a Volvo FH16 Globetrotter XL. If you are used to more traditional racing games, getting used to the way trucks handle in the game may take some time. They really do feel like trucks: Slow to accelerate, jarringly fast to brake thanks to air brakes, ungainly to maneuver, and immensely powerful.
It’s worth taking a closer look as it’s often there, but not where you expect to find it. The US layout, where the @ symbol shares the 2 key is the most popular place; sometimes its Shift + 2 but if that doesn’t work try Alt + Shift + 2 or Alt Gr + 2 (Alt Gr key is to the right of the spacebar). In France you will normally find it on the 0 key, whilst in the Czech Republic and Hungary it’s on V. On Austrian and German keyboards it’s on the Q key, and again you have to hold down the Alt Gr key to make it appear. Failing that there is a shortcut that works on virtually all Latin script keyboards and that’s Alt + 64; press the Numlock key first, and enter the digits on the numeric keypad.
By the early Fifties the Hotel Antumalal, built into the steep hillside forming the shore of the lake, was open for business. The main bedrooms – and there are only 16 of them – extend above a cliff, all wood-panelled and with an entire wall of glass overlooking the lake and mountains. The furniture, updated but retaining the unique Fifties style, blends native wood, iron and rope. Lamp standards are made from small knotted tree trunks. Chairs are intriguingly fashioned in wood and rope, and their comfort belies their appearance.
To conclude this article, we’d like to share with you a couple of tips that will make typing a little less frustrating with some of the features we have described above. If you have automatic spelling correction enabled, you’ll sometimes run into the system trying to correct a spelling that you have purposely misspelt. To ignore its suggested correction, hit the Escape key before you hit the Spacebar to continue. If you find yourself typing that word often, it’s a good idea to right-click (or Ctrl+click) on it and select Learn Spelling, so that the system never tries to automatically correct it for you again.

The new rupee symbol (below), which is a combination of the Devanagari letter “र” (ra) and the Latin capital letter “R” was designed by D. Udaya Kumar , a design lecturer at IIT Guwahati and was selected through an open competition held across 2009-10. The winning symbol was approved by Indian union cabinet in July 2010 and a proposal was submitted to encode the Indian rupee sign into UCS and make it a computer standard. This proposal was accepted by Unicode Technical Committee, a non-profit organization that manages the development of the Unicode standard, a month later.
