Video: Next-gen Mercedes C-Class caught in motion

By Brandon Turkus

Mercedes-Benz C-Class Spy Video

Filed under:

The new Mercedes-Benz C-Class has already been spied on this site, but we’ve yet to have a look at the new compact sedan in motion. Thanks to an intrepid YouTuber, though, we have five videos of the new C on the road.

The car(s) in question have a bit more cladding than in our previous spy shots, but several of the new MB familial traits are evident, particularly the S-Class inspired taillights.

Notably, the third video is the first time we’ve heard the C-Class at speed. It’s difficult to tell from the brief snippet of exhaust, but we certainly hear some V6 notes in there, meaning this could be the new C300/C350. We’ve posted all five videos below, so be sure to check them out and let us know what you think.

Report: Mercedes FWD platform to last until 2018, convertible and two-seater future uncertain

By Brandon Turkus

2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA sedan - front three-quarter view, silver

Filed under:

Mercedes-Benz seems to be expecting a lot of success from its front-wheel-drive CLA-Class. Automotive News is reporting that the sub-C-Class sedan could grow when its second generation arrives in 2018.

The current FWD platform for MB underpins the CLA, the B-Class, the GLA-Class, and the A-Class. The B-Class will arrive in North America as an EV for spring of 2014, while the production GLA crossover will arrive three to four months after that. The five-door A-Class won’t be crossing The Pond. Sad faces all around.

According to AN, another model will be based on the front-drive architecture, but it won’t be coming to the US market. Set to arrive next year, rumors are that it’ll be a wagon version of the CLA, sort of like the ill-named five-door CLS Shooting Brake that is also a Europe-only item.

As for the rumored CLA convertible and two-seat roadster, if those two arrive, it’s not going to be until the second-generation of the current architecture hits the market. Even then, their future is in uncertain, as Dieter Zetsche, CEO of Daimler AG told Automotive News, “We are considering the final portfolio of the next generation of our compact cars. We have to define it and we may expand the portfolio.”

Video: BMW M135i vs. Mercedes A45 AMG in Euro small-lux throwdown

By Brandon Turkus

Filed under:

BMW and Mercedes-Benz – please, please, please bring the M135i and A45 AMG hatchbacks to North America. For as long as we can remember, buyers in the New World have been forced to look longingly at Europe and Great Britain and the excellent super hatches that are so routinely offered there. And while we’re quite content with the Ford Focus ST and Volkswagen GTI, having a 360-horse five-door with a premium, content-rich interior sounds quite nice.

Our envy for Europe has grown after watching the latest video from Drive, which stars Chris Harris, the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG and the BMW M135i. This latest battle between MB and BMW takes place on both road and track, with Harris providing a running commentary. If you’re interested in the upcoming Mercedes CLA45 AMG, you should pay special attention to the section on the A45, as the two are essentially fraternal twins. While the video is a bit on the long side, it provides a comprehensive rundown of both cars, giving those of us in North America just a small taste of what we’re missing. Check it out by scrolling below.

Video: Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG officially teased in mini video

By Brandon Turkus

Filed under:

The followup to the Mercedes-Benz S550, the S63 AMG, will sport a biturbocharged V8 that will likely turn out around 550 horsepower. The new engine is probably the 5.5-liter, biturbocharged V-8 that’s been popping up in everything from the ML63 to the E63 AMG. The front fascia is more aggressive, which shouldn’t come as a surprise, while a meaty exhaust setup can be found out back.

We managed to pick all that up from a short, 17-second video posted by MB. The original video that unveiled the S63 AMG has since been pulled down, making this YouTube clip the best look we now have at the new super sedan, at least until the Germans give up the goods for real.

Be sure to check out the video below, along with our original posting on the S63 AMG.

Report: Firing of M-B boss upheld

By Brandon Turkus

Filed under: , ,

Ernst Lieb, the disgraced former CEO of American operations for Mercedes-Benz, will not be getting any more money from the Silver Arrow’d teat. His wrongful dismissal suit against MB’s parent company, Daimler, was tossed out of a German appeals panel. This, followed the initial rejection by a lower court last year.

According to court documents acquired by Automotive News, Lieb was found to have “accepted payments of substantial value to which he – as he was aware – had no claim.”

Lieb took over American operations from former CEO Paul Halata in September of 2006. Reports surfaced in October of 2011 that Lieb was dismissed from his posting at MB, with a variety of rumors swirling. Eventually, news broke that financial wrong doing was responsible for the German’s firing.

Lieb misappropriated over $100,000 of corporate funds for home improvements to his Mahwah, New Jersey residence, which were used for new beds, a home gym, a theater and a built-in barbecue. Mercedes-Benz replaced Lieb with current CEO Steve Cannon in December of 2011.

DOODAD launches the world's easiest pay-as-you-go travel data SIM card

DOODAD launches the world’s easiest pay-as-you-go travel data SIM card


Keeping international travelers connected, when in roam.

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)– DOODAD, the data-only MVNO for people who travel internationally, today launched the simple, affordable, headache-free way to get international data around the world. DOODAD works in unlocked GSM smart phones and tablets, snapping out as either a mini or micro SIM (with Nano on the way), and is powered by a simple pay-as-you-go system. Place the DOODAD in your device, add some DOO-DATA, and you’re able to access the Internet in 54 countries around the world with no contracts, no fine print and no nonsense.

Rather than relying on expensive and limited carrier-based data plans, the DOODAD works on a simple tier-based structure. For example, use your DOODAD in australia and you’ll pay just 30 cents/MB, while in the UK it’s 60c/MB. In comparison, a single megabyte of Data Roaming through most carriers sits around $20/MB in either of those countries – easy to push into the hundreds of dollars in a single day.

“We rely upon our data for a lot of things, business, getting directions, finding where to eat, and staying in touch with the people who matter. So we found it odd that when traveling internationally, data was complicated, inconvenient, or just way too expensive,” said Sarah Neill, CEO of DOODAD. “So we launched DOODAD. You control how much you want to spend each day, so you can stay connected, without worrying.”

Over 70% of people turn off Data Roaming while overseas to avoid these outrageous data charges. But people need not go without any longer. Get a DOODAD, load it up with DOO-DATA, and use it each time you travel away. DOO-DATA lasts 365 days, so any you don’t use, is ready for your next trip.

With the data access DOODAD provides, you can look up maps and find your way around, keep in touch with your loved ones, make VoIP calls, check your email, and keep using Facebook without coming home to bill shock.

So don’t drop off the grid when you next travel – get a free DOODAD at GETADOODAD.com

New York auto showcase is venue for Mercedes-Benz EV

(Phys.org) —Mercedes-Benz is to show off its electric car at the New York International Auto Show, open to the public from March 29 to April 7 at the Jacob Javits Center. Mercedes-Benz calls its vehicle the B-Class Electric Drive. This is an all-electric five-seater to be available for sale in the U.S. next year. What was MB thinking in coming up with such an unfortunate title for such a good-looking vehicle? Naming it B-Class Electric Drive, while indicating it is one of MB‘s smaller designs, in a larger context may be confused with a general perception of the letter B as signifying mediocrity, which is not the case with this vehicle. The car maker is positioning it as “the first luxury battery electric car from Mercedes-Benz in the market,” one that will give its drivers “electric driving at the premium level.” …read more

hdisk30 1115 36864
hdisk31 1116 24576
hdisk32 1116 16384
......

and then add them up as Sub-Total and Grand Total followed by:

DISK SUMMARY in MB

Issue about PP size

By adilyos

Hello everyone,

I have many VGs on my system. I have created them whith the same command. I haven’t specified the PP size while creating them. Logically, the PP size should be the same (default value) in all the VGs. However, I have different PP size : 32 MB, 256 MB, 64 MB and 128 MB.

Can anyone explain why I haven’t the same PP size ? what’s the PP size default value ?

What’s the utility of having small PP size rather than big PP size ?

Thank you

Memory leak?

By dasx

Hey everybody.
There’s a built in command in Max OSX Mountain Lion called caffeinate. (Man page here).
It basically creates an assertion so the computer doesn’t go to sleep.

I leave my computer uploading and/or downloading small files from our work FTP server at night, problem is due to new behave rules of sleeping mode in Mountain Lion it goes to sleep 10 minutes after I turned the screen off. I don’t wanna just disable “Sleep”, because I want my computer to go to sleep as soon as it finished.

So created this function that I run when downloading something:
(Got another one for when uploading)

Code:

echo
echo "AWAKE WHILE DOWNLOAD SPEED IS OVER 30KB/s"
echo
caffeinate &
id=$!
s1=`date '+%s'`
echo
v=100
avg=0
mins=0
while [ $v -gt 30 ]
do sleep 1
a=`netstat -ib -I en1 | tail -n 1 | awk '{print $7}'`
sleep 59
b=`netstat -ib -I en1 | tail -n 1 | awk '{print $7}'`
v=$(((b-a)/1024/59))
avg=$((avg+v))
mins=$((mins+1))
vmedia=$((avg/mins))
if [ $v -gt 30 ]
then echo -ne "r33[K"
echo -ne "LAST MINUTE AVERAGE: "$v"KB/s [GA: "$vmedia"KB/s]"
else echo -ne "r33[KGLOBAL SPEED AVERAGE: "$vmedia"KB/s"
s2=`date '+%s'`
a=$((s2-s1))
echo
down=$((vmedia*a))
echo -ne "TOTAL DOWNLOADED: "
if [ $down -lt 1024 ]
then echo -ne $down
elif [ $down -lt $((1024*1024)) ]
then echo $down | awk '{printf "%.2f",$1/1024}'
else echo $down | awk '{printf "%.2f",$1/1024/1024}'
fi
if [ $down -lt 1024 ]
then echo -ne KB
elif [ $down -lt $((1024*1024)) ]
then echo -ne MB
else echo -ne GB
fi
fi
done
kill $id
echo
h=$((a/3600))
a=$((a-3600*h))
m=$((a/60))
echo
echo "TOTAL TIME AWAKE: "$h"h"$m"m"
hora=`date '+%H'`
minuto=`date '+%M'`
echo "JOB FINISHED AT $hora:$minuto"
echo


Problem comes when it’s been running for long periods of time. (i.e. 8 hours).
When I wake the computer up memory usage is up to 99-100%.

First time I noticed this went straight to activity monitor and saw the 85% was inactive memory. It did eventually free up but this got me thinking. Ran my script again and I could see the inactive memory going up at like 1MB/s or so.

Any ideas why this happens?

Thanks!

Kingston's 1TB thumb drive packs massive storage capacity in tiny package

For anyone interested in fitting every digital music file you own onto one USB thumb drive, you are in luck. Kingston has just broken the thumb drive capacity limit, cramming 1 TB of storage into its’ latest USB drive announced Monday. But before you get too excited, there are two things to consider. One, the price of this thumb will likely be $2000 or more. Second, this thumb drive is just as easy to lose, leave behind, and accidentally send through the washing machine as all your missing 265 MB thumb drives.

On Monday Kingston unveiled its 1 TB USB flash drive called the Kingston DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0. The Kingston DataTraveler has read/write speeds of up to 240MB/s and 160MB/s respectively. With a USB 2.0 connection on your computer, you will only achieve speeds of up to 30MB/s.

The price for the 1TB model has not been announced, but judging by the tag on its half-capacity sibling, it won’t be too affordable either. A comparable 512GB Kingston model costs a whopping $1750, which is $3.41 per GB, compared to $1.17 per GB for an average 128GB drive.

Kingston also announced two DataTraveler Ultimate USB 3.0 G3 drives in 32GB and 64GB capacities, with read speeds of 150MB/s and 70MB/s for writing data. The drives are also backward compatible with USB 2.0 with speed limitation, and pricing and availability hasn’t been announced.

Bryan Quigley: On Upgrading Routers

Below are the speedtests of two different routers using a wired connection.

Actiontec (about 2011) – 53.22 MB (down) 8.23 (up)
Linksys WRT54G v2 (about 2004) – 23 MB (down) 7.76 (up)

Generally I like the older Linksys routers because I can install OpenWRT on them.  With my faster internet connection they can’t really stand up to new routers though.  Worth checking if your router is the bottleneck in your Internet experience.

Speaking of new routers, I’ve been researching to buy with IPv6 support and preferably an open firmware out of the box.  I haven’t been able to find one yet…Buffalo is a great choice for the open part, but doesn’t have IPv6 by default.  In addition, the DD-WRT project appears to have stalled somewhat this last year.  In an ideal world I’d get a router who’s manufacturer officially loads OpenWRT and enables IPv6 out of the box.   Am I missing said vendor?
