Re: What's with car reviews on an IT site?
I have based several recent car choices on reviews on El Reg, indeed I am enjoying my Renault Twingo greatly, a car I wouldn't have considered without that review. These reviews are well-written, comprehensive and take a real-world view, all qualities which I find useful.
As to the IT relevance, have you listened to any conversations in any room with a reasonable concentration of IT folk? At some point it will turn to cars. It just does. You may start off with bit-rates, terabytes and mips but eventually you will end up at 0-60 and bhp. As the daughter of a manufacturer of automotive fasteners I'm quite used to it and join in quite happily. Car talk is all part of IT. No matter how hard I have tried. needlework talk hasn't replaced it yet.
Anyway, I may need to new job so that I can afford this particular run-around. Time to hit the job sites.
