It wasn't long ago that backup cameras were scoffed at as nanny tech for those with poor parking skills, but it's difficult to imagine a new car on sale today without a backup camera installed from the factory. From a sales and marketing perspective, skipping on backup cameras, or even making them a costly option, would be a marketing disaster that would automatically earn poor grades in various car review publications -- akin to offering a new car today without a passenger airbag. But passenger-side airbags themselves were an item associated with luxury cars as late as the early 1990s -- a staple in premium sedans but by no means universal.Now, in 2019, the U.N. Economic Commission for Europe, aka UNECE, wants to make automatic emergency braking systems, or AEBS, standard equipment in all cars in the European Union and several other regions starting in 2020. While the U.S. itself is not a party to the treaty that the proposed U.N regulation builds upon, a group of 20 major automakers … [Read more...] about Autoweek Asks: What new safety tech item should be mandatory?
Landfills around the world are overflowing with the refuse of daily life. See more green living pictures. Photo courtesy of Onslow County Somewhere in the world, a recyclable aluminum can is tumbling into a landfill. Actually, 50.7 billion cans are tumbling into landfills every year, and that's just in the United States [source: Allegheny]. Despite the availability of recycling programs, people are still tossing "garbage" at an alarming rate -- more than 4 pounds (1.8 kilograms) per day per person, or 56 tons (50 metric tons) per year, for the average American trash producer [source: CAC]. And not all of that trash even could be recycled if it were tossed in a different bin. Landfills around the world, but especially in the United States and China, are overflowing with the refuse of daily life. Trash is beginning to overtake oceans, too -- there's a garbage patch in the Pacific that measures somewhere between the size of one or two Texases (see Could we clean up the Great … [Read more...] about In what new ways can bacteria help shrink our landfills?
IE7 Security and Compatibility Courtesy Microsoft The URL bar in IE7 will turn red if a web page is on a third-party list of phishing sites. And finally, what new IE browser would be complete with security upgrades? Among other safety features, this version comes with default-disabled Active-X controls so your computer won't ever download something without your permission unless you tell it to; always-present address bars on every open window so there's no easy way to hide a true page URL; and a neat little color-coding system that warns you if the Web page you're visiting could be a phishing or spoof site. If you go to a page that is on a third-party list of known phishing sites, the URL bar turns red. In the upcoming version of IE7 that will ship with the new Microsoft Vista operating system, the browser also offers parental controls and an "isolation" setting that prevents anything you do while browsing (inadvertently downloading something evil, for instance) from … [Read more...] about What’s new about Internet Explorer 7?
Ah, the smell of a new car! Many people find the aroma of a new car so enticing that they seek it out — even when it's not in "new car" form. Think of all the air fresheners and sprays touting available that mimic the smell of a brand-new car. But as host Ben Bowlin discovers in this episode of BrainStuff, that new car smell comes not from one single substance, but an amalgamation of different things. And some of those substances can be downright dangerous. While scientists aren't sure exactly why a new car smells so appealing to people, they do know what it is. The materials used to make a new car's interior include polyurethane or polyester, which are known for their ability to withstand temperature changes and general wear and tear. These materials, along with all the other paints, plastics and sealants, release volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the air during a process known as "outgassing." The VOC molecules eventually evaporate, but not before tantalizing our nostrils … [Read more...] about Here’s What ‘New Car Smell’ Actually Is
