Crveno svjetlo! Što je to?


Crveno svjetlo na semaforu označava stop, stani, ne idi preko, opasnost, možeš poginuti. Ili bi to barem trebalo tako biti, pa bilo je još donedavno. Pa zar više nije? Ne znam, izgleda da nije.

The days of creases are over – Aesthetics


The designers at Mercedes-Benz are reconciling tradition and modernity in designing the cars for the future. Their work centres on ‘Sensual Purity’ as an expression of modern luxury. In applying this design philosophy, Mercedes-Benz sparked a transformation in design with the current A‑Class, launched in 2012. The new design idiom featuring edges and creases – indentations and recesses in the sheet metal – aimed to create clear forms and sensual surfaces which showcase high tech while also arousing emotions. This played a decisive role in making the brand younger and was key to the company’s excellent sales results.

Ako vas je strah snijega, pripremite se za njega


Nemojte se bojati voziti po snijegu, ništa se bitno neće dogoditi. Mali pomaci klizanja u pravilu nisu veći od pola do jednog metra. Ako se to i dogodi, budite cool i pričekajte da se automobil smiri. Naravno to se odnosi na male, gradske, uobičajene brzine kretanja. Veći problem je strah u našim glavama, kojim nas bombardiraju mediji.

Promjena brisača u tri čina


Dan prvi. Ugledah u Intersparu brisače na akciji. 25 kuna je stvarno dobra cijena. Moji na Renaultu su još dobri, ostavljaju dva tri tanka traga ali ništa alarmantno. Mogu oni tako još vrlo dugo. Ali, 25 kuna po komadu za dobar novi brisač, odlučio sam, mijenjam ih. Pozovem prodavača i zamolim za pomoć. Potrebno je odabrati odgovarajuću dužinu i adekvatnu plastičnu spojnicu. Kako ih ima mnogo mladi prodavač časkom će riješiti zagonetku.
