So much this. I don't need Uber (or Lyft) often, but when I do, I pick them over a Taxi for convenience alone. I've never had to wait longer than 5 minutes here in Indy. The fact that I got a really nice looking driver the last time and rode in a luxury car instead of a taxi was just a bonus. » 3/18/15 2:40pm 3/18/15 2:40pm

I too work at a call center (tech support in this case, actually working now) and read Jalopnik as well. When you think of it, dropping the question about the PT Cruiser might have gotten this response, "Oh? You're that Doug DeMuro? Let me stop reading Jalopnik and actually help you!" » 3/13/15 3:19pm 3/13/15 3:19pm

I bought a tablet for around $99. It was from Zeni-something-or-other... an off name brand. It lasted a month. No service to speak of. I learned sometimes you get what you pay for, and in the electronics arena, it is probably wise to buy something name brand. » 3/03/15 11:43am 3/03/15 11:43am

I'm suggesting 3 cars, this is the first. It's a 1993 Lexus SC 2dr Coupe, with 68,608 miles. It has an auto, but it is so darn immaculate, I can overlook it. Michael Jordan gave his dad one of these. Two dirtbags shot and killed him to take it. That's how desirable this car was back then. » 2/28/15 9:00pm 2/28/15 9:00pm
