Product Review: GoPro Hero3 White Edition (w/Video)

GoPro Hero3 White EditionThe GoPro Hero cameras have been out for several years now, and have become popular with adrenaline junkies all over the world.  While there are several dedicated dashboard cameras in use overseas, the options here in America are a bit constrained, to say the least.  Since Washington, D.C.-area drivers do a lot of stupid things behind the wheel, I thought it’d be a great idea to run my own dash cam, so I started researching them, and ended up choosing the GoPro Hero3.  Click past the jump for why, and my review of it.  Keep in mind that I’m writing this review for the Hero3 with dash cam usage in mind.  If you have any more questions about the Hero3, feel free to contact me!

13 Chrysler Employees Fired after Fox 2 Catches them Drinking on the Job

A Detroit-based Fox 2 reporter was tipped off to some startling activity going on at Chrysler’s Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit, MI.  Last week, reporter Rob Wolchek captured several Chrysler employees drinking on their lunch break at a public park, as well as consuming what could be marijuana.  Not only did he and his camera crew catch them one day, but all week!  That just stuns me, with as much trouble as the automaker is in, it can’t afford to have people on the payroll who aren’t sober during their shift.  Chrysler apparently agrees, since they’ve now fired 13 of them, and suspended 2 more for a month without pay.  Read on for more details and the incriminating video and follow-up report.

UPDATE: Swedish speeder fined $1,014,585

In an update to a story I wrote about earlier this week, the Swedish government has handed down “300 days of fines”, or £2,166 daily, for a total of £650,000.  Translated into USD, that amounts to $1,014,585.  And remember, this is based on his speed and income!  Also featured in the update: the model of the Mercedes the 37-year old driver was piloting; the brand new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, pictured above, which I wrote about before.

Swedish Speeder could face $962,000 fine

A 37-year old Swedish driver, who has remained unnamed, was caught speeding in his “black Mercedes-Benz”, which cost $240,000, at 180 mph.  This points me in the direction of the new SL65 AMG, which retails at around $200,000 USD.  According to officials, that could be a record for the country, and the driver faces a fine of up to $1 million Swiss francs, or $962,000 USD, based on the Swedish government’s formula which fines speeders based on their speed and income level.
