What? Dropping the standard-IC MP3s from the US lineup?

How the hell am I supposed to get one of those cheap in the used-market if they don't flood us with them for several years?

Yeah. I hear it's a "sparkling" performer, too. Might meet some resistance. Conduct yourself accordingly. I'll be Ohm when it gets here.

See Mr. Cobb, a hybrid! If it runs out of electricity, just push the button and it goes into gasoline power/recharge mode. And it looks pretty darn compact too.

And if the Italians can do it, so can we.

141 miles per gallon?

I hope they put a big arrow that shows you where the gas fill is located, 'cause you're liable to forget!

Still, $8k for a little scooter...

If you use credit to pay for the 'trons to restore the battery, would you call it a "Charge Charge Card?"
