The Worst-Made Cars on the Road

Four of the seven vehicles on our list of the worst-made cars on the road come from GM brands. And all of the cars on the list — including Chrysler’s Dodge Nitro and Jeep Wrangler — are made by Detroit’s Big Three. Only one car on the list is made by Ford Motor.

The biggest surprise on the list, given recent automotive news: It includes no Toyota (NYSE: TM) made vehicles. In fact, Toyota reported a 40.7% gain in sales last month over March 2009; its Lexus division was up 42%.

Laptop Falls From Helicopter, Just Misses Boy

We’ve heard of dropping laptops before, hell…we’ve dropped a few ourselves, but we’ve never dropped one out of a helicopter almost hitting a 10 year old kid.

Grayson said the computer made a loud sound when it hit the ground, almost like a gunshot. The 10-year-old’s aunt was nearby when she heard the same noise. “‘What’s that?’ It was really loud and not more than two seconds later my little nephew comes around the corner and says ‘Auntie Laura, something just fell out of the sky and it almost hit me,'” said Laura Colon.

Apple co-founder who sold his share for $800 has no regrets

Often referred to as the ‘third founder’ of Apple Computers, Ronald Wayne has revealed he has no regrets over selling his share in the company. Working alongside Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, Wayne was given a 10 percent share in Apple but quickly sold them for just $800 in 1976.

A report in the News Of The World this morning claims those shares would now likely be worth £13.6 billion. Under the headline ‘If Only iPad Known,’ Wayne tells the tabloid newspaper he has no regrets over the decision.

Lunch-Only Beer Policy Prompts Carlsberg Strike

Scores of Carlsberg workers walked off their jobs in protest Thursday after the Danish brewer tightened laid-back rules on workplace drinking and removed beer coolers from work sites, a company spokesman said.

The warehouse and production workers in Denmark are rebelling against the company’s new alcohol policy, which allows them to drink beer only during lunch hours in the canteen. Previously, they could help themselves to beer throughout the day, from coolers placed around the work sites.
