Ah, the Notorious “GreenCarCo” of Washington State – It Used to Advertise on Bay Area Craigslist? – Hey, What’s Up with TDI Motors?

Friday, October 24th, 2014

Well, this here’s a scene from Masonic in the 94117:

And I’m thinking, gee, what makes this VW “green?” Its diesel engine? Mmmm…

Anyway, I don’t know if they still advertise cars in the 415 from the 425, but, oh man, check out the Yelp, and the somewhat-hidden Yelp.

And what’s up with TDI Motors?” What’s its relationship with Green Car Co of Washington State? Is this old wine in new bottles? IDK, but mmmm… And what’s the relationship with Volkswagen? And hey, isn’t TDI a trade name or a trademark or a service mark or something like that, you know, owned by the VW Group, or someplace like that?

IMO:

1. TDI does not equal green.

2. If somebody calls me from out of state to do a car deal in craigslist SFBay territory, I don’t think the conversation is going to last long, JMO.

OMG OMG, the New Samsung Galaxy S III Phone is Here, Almost – Release Date is June 21 on the T-Mobile

Monday, June 4th, 2012

The highly-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S III is a coming on June 21, 2012, at (achtung, baby!) T-Mobile, (aka Deutsche Telekom AG) anyway – that’s the news.

Oh, it turns out that that big AT&T / T Mobile merger isn’t going to happen, so TMO soldiers on as America’s #4 (and Germany’s #1) cell phone carrier, not that that really affects me. What affects me is that the T-Mobile doesn’t work so hot in the Lower Haight / Between the Haights (BTH) areas, I’ve noticed, lately, for whatever reason. Otherwise TMO is AOK.

This new device is wide. My man-hands will be able to handle it (in about a half-year or so when my re-up time comes), but what about your hands? I don’t know.

Deets from this AM’s release are below.
