I had a long phone conversation the other day with a colleague who is “in the industry” and we discussed a number of topics…but the one that really stuck out in my head was his questions about what DailyTurismo means to me. My canned answer is that it is a hobby business — something I do because I love cars and enjoy sharing them with people…but the underlying question is interesting. So, instead of answering it myself, I want you guys to tell me in the comments; What does DailyTurismo mean to you?
I made the mistake of reading some article the other day that had a list of 10 new technologies that made new cars great…and it boiled my blood. I’m not a diehard Luddite, but I feel that connected mobile apps, Apple CarPlay, and lane departure warning buzzers are just things that I would disable after they buzzed at me enough times. I don’t need it, and I don’t want it. And, yes I have driven a car with lane departure and auto cruise control etc…and it was interesting, and I played with the controls until I almost crashed into someone else and I turned them off and listened to AM radio. Because I don’t need magnetic ride control or GPS dependent ride height. I couldn’t find the exact article I was reading about the new tech, but here is R&T’s list of fancy-pants tech, and here is KBB’s Best Auto Tech of 2019…and the following is DailyTurismo’s best tech of 2020…also known as the 10 Things I Need In A Car in 2020. The future is now.
Hey DT readers, I’ve heard some people have had issues with registering and commenting on the site — this was due to an issue with the CAPTCHA (Completely Automated Public Turing Test to tell Computers and Humans Apart is a challenge that tries to separate people from computers and stop automated spammers) which is reCAPTCHA by google, but was accusing some DT commenters of being computers and/or soulless replicants…which is probably true, but I want you guys to comment anyway without fear of being hunted down by a glum Blade Runner.
Another year, another set of wrinkles and grey hair…except not on Daily Turismo. Here we turn 8 years old on July 17th, 2020, but through the magic of the internet, we can get younger each year. Leaner. Fitter. Less spammy, less Blogger, more Wordpress. So that is exactly what we did.
It’s a brand new day. Or a brave new world. Either way, I’ve pulled off a band-aid that has covered a festering sore in DT for many many years. Yes, I’ve totally turned off anonymous comments. This means no more spam, but it also means you’ll need to register to comment on DailyTurismo. To register, […]
It has been a few years since we’ve pushed any major changes to DailyTurismo website…but we’ve got some new stuff for all you car lovers in cyberspace including; a new and revamped website, a new commenting system, and that’s about it. It has been a long two days of fighting WordPress themes and configuring DNS […]
