The Official Ferrari Magazine App is in the Store

image

Here is something for all Grease Monkeys and Sport Cars Lovers out there. Ferrari brings the Official Magazine App to the Store. If you love Sport cars in general and Ferrari in particular, you’ll need to get this app. I don’t even need to describe the app to you as Ferrari SPA gave a detailed description in the Store themselves as follows:

Description
Ferraris, arts, culture, fashion, lifestyle: the entire world of Ferrari lovers at your fingertips.
The Ferrari Magazine is completely unique in that it combines the authentic voice of Ferrari, its models, secrets and sporting achievements past and present, with the writings of renowned international journalists on a broad range of different subjects. However, one of the main reasons for the Magazine’s huge popularity is that each issue focuses on a different theme. Signs, language, colours, style, technology and boldness, are just some of the strands used to draw together the subjects that make each and every new Ferrari Magazine unique.
Just like the end-of-year issue which continues the Ferrari Yearbook tradition. For just €10.99, you’ll enjoy 100 extra pages – that’s 280 rather than the usual 180 – which include an account of Luca di Montezemolo’s two decades as chairman told to journalists in his own words, a story of 20 years of superbly intuitive and farsighted decision-making that produced unprecedented success across the board. And, of course, as the year is ending, we also bring you an analysis of the racing season too.
The Official Ferrari Magazine’s editorial team and management are in Maranello but work on each issue with a team from prestige publisher Condé Nast in London (Vogue, Vanity Fair, Ad, GQ, Wired, etc.). Despite being a publication that does, of course, focus on Ferrari’s cars, the Magazine also embraces culture, art, fashion and trends, giving its own unique take on the whole lifestyle concept from the viewpoint of Ferrari enthusiasts.

First Temporal Anomaly Experience

Yesterday, I experienced for the first time in my life a typical Temporal (Time-space) phenomena. My car tried to occupy the same space at the same time with another car. Of course, I tried to stop it from breaking nature’s rule, but it kept going due to low-coefficient of friction on the road as a result of ice. Nature abhors breaking its rules, therefore it resolved the situation, the result is that matter was converted into energy (heat and sound) with matter coalescing into each other, and piece of cars flying off at tangential trajectories.

It was a jarring experience, but thank God I was kept safe by the belt. My internal organs however were travelling at the same speed as the car, so they had to come to halt suddenly as the car; rather discomforting. Now I know how it felt to have an accident. Its an experience I intend to avoid at all cost in the future.

Cars 2- Movie Review

Cars 2 is a Disney film released June 24th, 2011 as a sequel to the 2006 hit animated film Cars. In Cars 2, you are taken on quite the adventure as Lightning McQueen, Mater, and the gang travel the world for McQueen to race in the World Grand Prix. The context of the movies is rather generic for Disney films which in most cases would make a par film, but the overall delivery of the content and story of the movie allowed Disney to capture attention once again. Though it is really debated on who’s film it really was, I believe Cars 2 more focuses on Mater, the tow truck who becomes Lightning McQueen’s best friend in the first Cars movie.

Traveling around the world with Fin McMissiles and Holly Shiftwell, Mater helps to figure out what is causing the other race cars to blow engines during the first two races of the World Grand Prix. Eventually in the end Mater is the last hope for finding the root cause of all the engine explosions bringing the founder of the World Grand Prix in the movie, to justice.

To not spoil the movie too much more, I would have to say that I recommend this movie for the amazing visual effects, decent story line, and overall the action packed adventure that demands your attention throughout the movie. Though there are parts of the movie that are a little sketchy, the overall movie was fantastic. I would have to say out of 10 stars this movie would get about 9.5 for the overall fact that the movie did what it was supposed to. And that is to Entertain, and to keep the audience watching.
