Chip Shortage Worsens as Bosch Says Current Supply Chain Is Inept

I've said it before and I'll say it again. Walk into a Bosch plant and you'd be able to slap together a whole car using nothing but the dumpster out back. Put another way, the German parts manufacturer makes just about everything cars. I routinely find parts on my project car that are made by Bosch, and that car is old enough to vote. However, even the mighty Bosch has been felled by the chip shortage. Now, the brand says that production methods and supply chains are inadequate for the modern world.

BMW Still Wins Out as the Best Luxury Car Brand According to Consumers

At one point in time, BMW was the best luxury car brand. So much so, that the brand became a status symbol. Basically, if you wanted people to think you were someone, you drove a BMW. However, times change, and there's a lot of new players in the luxury car segment. Take Genesis for example. The brand has quietly been sneaking up on BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, and Lexus. With so much choice in the marketplace, it's time to figure out if consumers still prefer the old ways, or if attitudes have shifted.

Avis Stole a Mans Rental Car Back for No Reason

Renting a car is a pretty standard experience for most people. Usually, you show up, pick up the car, then drop it off again when you leave. Sure, there's a wilder side to it, but those are usually edge-case scenarios. However, Tarikh Campbell certainly saw the wilder side of it when Avis literally stole his rental car. In doing so, Avis set off a storm of negative PR after Campbell took to Twitter to discuss the incident. The worst part? As far as I can tell, the rental company has literally zero justification for doing so.
Mercedes Formula 1 boss Toto Wolff runs his hands through his hair

Mercedes Formula 1 CEO Toto Wolff, Lawrence Stroll Investigated for Insider Trading

Toto Wolff and the Mercedes Formula 1 team are used to being at the top. Frankly, the team is damn near unbeatable and has been for the last several years. Not many have risen to challenge them, Red Bull most recently, has done so with some success. However, this dominance on track comes with financial gains off track.

Did Mercedes Formula 1 boss Wolff get there not just through blood, sweat, and tears, but through some less than legitimate means as well?

The new Tesla Bot is the latest offering of high-tech and futuristic AI from Tesla and Elon Musk, and it was introduced in a rather awkward and unconventional manner: a man dressed up as a robot doing...well, the robot, as well as other funny and somewhat cringy-worth dance moves to garnish your attention light heartedly.
