Never blow up your battery with Michelin Smart Jumper Cables

by Sam Abuelsamid

Virtually every driver will, at some point, get that sinking feeling that comes when your car doesn't start. Digging out a set of jumper cables to boost a battery is a rite of passage. Jump-starting a car can be a slightly tricky process, though. The positive and negative terminals of the booster and "boostee" need to be connected properly or the battery can be blown up. Which is, you know, sub-optimal. Over the past decade, a number of devices have come out to help ease the battery-jumping process, including portable booster batteries and even jumper cables that plug into a 12V outlet inside the car. Those plug-in cables will never be connected with reverse polarity, but they might not be able to carry enough current to actually crank your engine.

Enter the Michelin Smart Jumper Cable. Instead of the usual color-coded clamps for your battery's positive and negative terminals, the cables are all Michelin blue. Halfway down the cable is a box of electronic smarts. Just put one clamp on the positive terminal of the battery and the other on any piece of bare metal and the electronics will detect whether you've made a complete circuit and illuminate an LED on the central box. When the second battery is connected, the electronics automatically determine the polarity and switch it as needed. A set of these smart jumper cables runs about $30 to $40.

Audi R8 Spyder again in Iron Man 2?

The Audi R8 Spyder appears at 2:10 of the new Iron Man 2 trailer below:

Tony Stark has absolutely no shortage of exotic vehicular toys at his disposal. And we’re not even counting that whole Iron Man robotic suit – he now has four! - he keeps with him all the time. There’s a scene at the Circuit de Monaco, a slightly different Formula-something race with Tony Stark behind the wheel of one of the race cars, and a clear-as-day shot of the new Audi R8 Spyder. Also, there’s lots and lots of Scarlett Johansson, too.

It seems that Audi again appeared again on this new movie Iron Man 2. I hope it will be good or better than the first.

Why is his front license plate says “Giant Killer”? Maybe being the Giant at 7 ft tall that's why he put it there.

Foose/Deere 4020 vs John Deere 620 Orchard

by Alex Nunez

Chip Foose's John Deere 4020 is pretty kickass, but the reality is this: You needn't enlist the services of a famous pro rodder to get a slick-lookin' John Deere tractor. Take, for instance, the John Deere 620 orchard model shown above. Standard-issue 620s have a traditional tractor look to them, but the ones fitted with the additional orchard equipment a streamlined appearance that looks like it's a set of giant-sized moon caps away from making a land speed record run at Bonneville.

In fact, all that extra bodywork has nothing to do with aerodynamics or improved performance; its shielding designed to let the tractor operate in an orchard without the tires causing damage to the the tree branches. So, not only does this 620 look great, it does so for totally functional reasons.

And so, we come to tonight's poll: Which one of these tractors would you rather have? Follow the jump and declare your Deere.
