Electric Scooter Buying Guide - Everything You Need to Consider

Electric Scooter Buying Guide - Everything You Need to Consider

With so many options out there, getting an e-scooter is nowhere near straightforward

The e-scooter industry might still be in its infancy, but these electrically-powered machines are enjoying an increasing amount of popularity by the day. People living in big cities have rushed to adopt this new trend out of purely practical reasons - with so many cars stuck in traffic, e-scooters are the shortcut more, and more people are willing to take. Factor in their relatively low maintenance costs and the fact that you can easily fold them for storage or transport purposes, plus the advantage of not getting to your destination with a sweaty back, like it happens with bicycles or kick scooters, and you get an unbeatable recipe.

But with high demand comes high offer. With more and more people looking to get an e-scooter, companies that produce them have multiplied like rabbits, and others are joining them as we speak. This means that you, the buyers, now has hundreds of options to choose from, from low-end, cheap e-scooters to performance and off-road-oriented ones. So, which one is best for you? Well, only you can decide that, but we’ll give you a hand with a guide that touches on what key aspects you should consider before placing that order.

Most Anticipated 2020 Lego Speed Champions Car Sets

Most Anticipated 2020 Lego Speed Champions Car Sets

2020 is set to continue the upward Lego Speed Champions trend we saw in 2019

Lego won’t slow down its Speed Champions range expansion in 2020, which means one thing: we are in for some interesting new sets which, in case you didn’t get the memo, will be 25% larger (eight-stud wide instead of six-stud wide) than the previous ones, so this basically means more details without the use of stickers and the fact that you’ll be able to fit two mini-figures inside a car, as it will no longer use a centrally-mounted steering wheel setup.

The Danish toymaker has confirmed five 2020 Speed Champions sets so far, but in typical Lego fashion, we’re willing to bet that more builds are going to be announced along the way. In all fairness, we’re eager to get our hands on each and every of these sets, so that’s why we’ve included all of them below. Luckily, we won’t have to wait too much for them to hit the stores (physical or online, for that matter) as Lego’s planning to launch them on January 1, 2020. They’re not yet on sale, but we’ll update the article with extra links once they hit the market.

Grand Theft Auto VI: What We Know so Far

Grand Theft Auto VI: What We Know so Far

GTA VI is probably going to launch before 2021 and it’s going to be epic, but we don’t exactly know in what ways

Whenever there is news of an upcoming Grand Theft Auto game it is BIG news. The current GTA game has so far grossed $6-billion, which is more than any blockbuster movie in history and it’s still being bought today, nearly six years after it was released. Now we know there is a new installment in the works, GTA IV, and this is what we know about it so far.

It’s likely going to feature a multiple city setup that will see the characters travel from one city to another via airplane. Seamless integration of all platforms is also one of the rumors - you’ll essentially even be able to play the game with the best possible graphics settings on your smartphone via streaming and play with people connecting through different platforms. GTA IV will have several main characters which the player will be able to cycle through to advance the story, however there is a chance that one of these characters is a cop or female... or maybe even both.

This and plenty more will be analyzed below in this frenzied quest to uncover as much about the next GTA as possible, a quest that was sparked back in March of 2018 when the YouTube channel “The Know” uploaded a video containing several bits of information about the upcoming Rockstar Games title. Back then the big news was the possible return of the series to a familiar and fan-favorite location.

Your Full Guide to the BMW Driving Experience

Your Full Guide to the BMW Driving Experience

Drifting on wet asphalt, ice, and snow, seasoned with track sessions behind the wheel of BMW M models. What more could you ask for?

Here’s one for you: BMW was the first carmaker to offer driver training courses more than four decades years ago - to be more exact, 42 years at the time of writing. Back in 1976, the BMW Board saw fit to share the knowledge of correct vehicle handling and ways of driving in critical situations with the wide public by teaching motorists how to identify and react to the dangers they frequently encountered in traffic. But for that to happen, the manufacturer needed a so-called “School for Drivers.” And it came in 1977, when the BMW Training events kicked off on 22 April in Maching. BMW commissioned the services of its own M GmbH division to supervise the training modules, at that time led by the legendary Jochen Neerpasch. The support vehicle was a BMW 320i. Fast forward to 1991 and we witness the birth of BMW Snow Experience, which took place for the first time in ?tztal, Austria, inside a winter training facility found at an altitude of almost 3,000 meters. As of 1999, driver training expanded to include the famed Nürburgring - the first support vehicle to take on the Green Hell was a BMW Z3 M Coupé. Last but not least, 2006 sees the opening of BMW’s Arjeplog Testing Centre and subsequently, the BMW Ice Training events were relocated to Sweden.
