There's plenty of room in the Hotel California

20 minutes. That's how long it took someone to stop and ask me about the cherry red Volkswagen California I was driving.

Still a blast to drive, even in its twilight years

Welcome to the United States Canadian border in Port Huron, Michigan. Behind me is the Blue Water Bridge. Beside me is a blue Volvo V60 Polestar. This is the last year for this generation of car, and while it is old, this performance wagon is still a blast to drive.

Touring a hot (volcanic and otherwise) travel destination.

Iceland is quickly becoming a hot tourist destination, with the amount of visitors having doubled in the past two years (thanks millennials). And it is no wonder why. The country is home to some of the most beautiful landscapes and volcanic activity in the world.

These two crossovers provide room to roam

There are very few things in this word that I enjoy more than a road trip through the mountains, so I didn't hesitate when Volkswagen invited us to take their newest SUVs, the Tiguan and Atlas, on a road trip through Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park.

Sadly, Not The Bond We Were Hoping For

James Bond may forever be tied to Aston Martin, but those aren't the only cool cars in Spectre. Find out more in our movie review of the latest 007 film.

Normally in our Crowdfunding Combat series we pick two similar Kickstarter projects and pit them head to head against one another in a winner-takes-all combat to the death (minus the whole death part), but not this week. In this edition of Crowdfunding Combat we will take a look at three new-age tricycles, the urban mobility-inspired Me-Mover and Halfbike, as well as the showier Verrado Electric Drift Trike by Local Motors.

Google Street View is hardly new. The tech giant introduced this Google Maps enhancement in 2007 to help users experience unfamiliar locations as if they were there. In 2012, Google unveiled Trekker, a combination of their Street View camera and a backpack. This device has allowed Street View to go off road, and now even off land.

In early December, online retail goliath Amazon made headlines when they announced their plan for octocopter delivery drones, but that's not the only use for multi-rotor aerial technology. Similar multicopters have become extremely popular with photography and filmmaking enthusiasts in recent years by offering a reasonably inexpensive way to take aerial photos and videos.

It's another day and electric automaker Tesla Motors is in the news once again.

It should be obvious to even casual readers of TRANSLOGIC that electric cars are quickly gaining in popularity. Audi, BMW, Ford, Nissan and Tesla all have plug-ins on the market or coming soon.

Newly awarded patent could mean Google ads that provide transportation options to local businesses

Every year, businesses spend billions of dollars on advertising, often with the goal of getting consumers to their locations to purchase goods or services. While ads can certainly be an effective means of getting people out of their chairs and into their cars, wouldn't it just be easier if the business picked you up?

Things to consider before beginning your cross-country journey

Maybe it's the cultural remains of Manifest Destiny or my own sense of adventure, but each year I, like millions of other Americans, pack my vehicle to the brim with enough supplies to survive a mild nuclear winter and head off across the continent.
