    Drama in LA at the Auto Show

    Drama at an auto show? C’mon. They’re usually the exact same every year, with super-sparkly cars on twirling platforms, all the Detroit suits pointing out features, along with a few models who stand by the cars to attract more attention.

    What a difference in LA this time.  GM’s CEO Fritz Henderson was just basically asked to go, ONE DAY before the auto show where he *was* scheduled to be the keynote speaker. Stepping into his shoes? Bob Lutz, GM’s top auto design dog. Will Lutz be the guy to replace Fritz?

    One woman in the crowd watching keenly: Jean Jennings of Automobile Magazine.  Jean is a grease monkey from way back… she was a welder at Chrysler back in the day, now she’s a respected auto journalist.  She checked out everyone’s reactions, every word Lutz spoke and you’ve got to hear what she has to say about it. And stick with the clip all the way through to the end for the gorgeous red-head in thigh-high silver boots.  Told ya there was drama!


    Here you go, Liz:

    Good sound, not silent.(Altec Lansing AHP812, noise cancelling headphone)(Product/service evaluation)(Brief article)

    Australian PC World September 1, 2006 | Sutton, Jesse Altec Lansing’s AHP812 noise-cancelling headphones reduce external interferences, but don’t quite create the silent audio environment that you might be expecting. The speakers produce clear high-tones and excellent bass, which can be heard and felt even at low volumes. The cable not only had an in-line remote with volume control and a mute button, but was detachable from the headset to make way for a potential wireless set-up. web site best noise cancelling headphones

    One AAA battery is required for the best quality sound, which is claimed will last up to 48 hours, though the speakers will continue to play after the battery has died. Large leatherette cushions help keep you comfortable over extended periods of listening, and the taut, padded head-band with angled speakers creates a firm seal, which does well at minimising noise. The inclusion of an airline audio adapter as well as a 6.3mm jack is nice, as is the hard cell case and carry strap. Despite the digital noise-cancellation not being as effective as we’d like, these headphones produced a very nice sound. go to web site best noise cancelling headphones
