Yahoo To Shut Down Qwiki, Yahoo Education And The Yahoo Directory

Featured Image -- 1337

Originally posted on TechCrunch:

Yahoo announced today it’s shuttering a handful of products, including Qwiki, a mobile app Yahoo acquired last July for $50 million, which helps users create movies from the photos and videos in their Camera Roll. Also getting the boot are Yahoo Education, a site designed to connect users to educational content and providers, as well as Yahoo Directory, the 20-year old listing of websites which is how old people used to browse the web.

I kid, I kid. We’re not so old!

Still, seeing Directory shut down for good has an “end of an era” vibe to it. It’s not like anyone ever used the site anymore to browse the web – can you really believe that this is how it was once done? – but seeing it snuffed out may leave you feeling a bit nostalgic for the good ol’ days of the pre-Google era.

Kia still said to be considering diesels in US. Clean diesel of course.

Is Kia making diesel rumors a biennial thing? The automaker once again may take a closer look at making an oil-burner available for US consumption, JustAuto says. All in the name of fuel economy, of course.

Caara’s Mia Pelttari test drives: Kia cee’d GT 5 doors

The hot hatchback Kia cee’d GT was first presented in 2013, first as a three-door model and now, one year later, as a five-door model. Creating a GT model shows that Kia has self-confidence as a competent car manufacturer, which is able to also achieve a higher technological level than required in mass production. How far can Kia GT go with such opponents as VW Golf GTI and Ford Focus ST?

Kia cee’d GT has more street-cred than the regular cee’d, but not overtly so. The base is lowered and there is a large air intake hole in the front as well as a red stripe for effect. The car is equipped with a dual exhaust pipe system and stable 18″ wheels. Despite these, the car does not stick out, unless you look closely.

The same red effect colour is…

The Luxurious 2015 Kia K900

Kia has made a splash into the Luxury Car Segment with the 2015 Kia K900.  This is quite simply one of the most stylish fun vehicle you will ever drive.  It redefines what we have called luxury all of these years.  For a fraction of the cost of the other so called luxury vehicles, the K900 gives you more for less.

The design and impression is of the K900 not to mention the impressive quality is why Kia is setting itself apart as the premier car company. They have always been known for delivering value but the luxurious features found in this one is just short of amazing. The center display is high-tech and visually appealing with an intuitive 9.2-inch display. High-end soft-touch materials combined with tasteful wood trim round out the K900’s top-of-the-line interior. Available options like soft-close doors and reclining rear seats offer premium comfort and convenience.

There is excellent power from the 5.0-liter V8, combined with an 8-speed automatic. The EPA rates the 5.0-liter V8 at 15 mpg city, 23 mpg highway, and 18 mpg combined fuel efficiency. EPA fuel economy estimates for the 3.8-liter V6 are 18 mpg city, 27 mpg highway, and 21 mpg combined. The transmission’s shifter is BMW-inspired, with a DRL pattern from the top and a pushbutton park. Kia is known for providing incredible value and the K900 is no exception. The K900 comes packed with standard exterior features, including 18-inch alloy wheels, LED fog lights, adaptive xenon headlights, power-folding and auto-dimming mirrors, a power trunk lid, front and rear parking sensors automatic wipers, and keyless ignition and entry.

KIA’s K900 is Turning Heads

Luxury is not uncommon, but perfection is rare. Since the K900 debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show last year, the media has praised the luxury vehicle for its “elegant yet dynamic exterior styling,” first-class interior, robust standard feature set and advanced technologies. Over one thousand K900’s have been sold quickly raising the bar for the most affluent driver.

August’s issue of Robb Report features a glowing review of the K900. For more than 30 years, Robb Report has served as the definitive authority on connoisseurship for ultra-affluent consumers, showcasing products, services and experiences from luxury brands and now the magazine is happy to add the KIA vehicle to its list. Robb Report’s impression of the K900 speaks to the great in-roads KIA has made into the premium space and ability to compete in the luxury market.

The Robb Report notes, “the KIA has all the credentials of a luxury sedan, and its exterior paint, interior upholstery, and fit and finish would be exemplary on a $100,000 automobile.”
