How the Toshiba Tablet Works

When it comes to tablet computing, Apple’s iPad is the king of inspiring envy, with its svelte, luxurious image and burgeoning app store. But the iPad and all of its non-Apple tablet competitors are by no means an all-encompassing technology for anyone who needs serious computing power. Into that voids steps Toshiba’s Thrive, a virtual Swiss Army knife of tablets.
Released July 10, 2011, the Thrive (originally called simply the Toshiba tablet) targets a sector of the tablet market that’s so far been neglected — those consumers who want to do more than play games, surf the Web and fiddle with apps. Most notably, the device features full-size USB 2.0 and HDMI ports, along with a mini USB port and a standard-sized SD card slot, which accepts cards with capacities of up to 128GB. On a laptop, those ports would be yawners. But on teeny tablets, any added connectivity adds exponentially to the number of tasks you can perform.
Via the USB port

, for example, you can connect a full-size keyboard and speed through any chore that requires typing, rather than settling for a slower touch-screen keyboard. That simple USB port also might let you attach

, say, an external hard drive, meaning you can quickly access or back up just about any sort of content, from pictures to text, using the included File Manager app.
In spite of these advantages, the Thrive is currently hamstrung a bit by a shortfall of apps. Thrive comes with the Android 3.1 Honeycomb operating system, and for now, there are only a few hundred apps optimized for this OS. That’s a big red checkmark for app addicts, especially if you’re enthralled with the nearly 100,000-plus apps available for iPads [source: Apple].
However, Thrive didn’t set out to become the next iPad. As evidence, it comes with only Wi-Fi connectivity and no cellular capabilities (although future versions will have cell access). That laptop-ish trait means you’ll have to look a bit harder for Internet access when you’re out and about, but you won’t have to pay a hefty monthly fee for 3G data plans.
Toshiba jammed even more goodies into the Thrive in hopes of enticing tablet buyers. Keep reading to find out more about the technology in this genre-twisting device.

1931-1938 Hispano-Suiza J12

The J12 was offered only as a rolling chassis, with massive construction and a choice of four wheelbases. The huge “square” V-12 (long stroke engine optional) was an engineering masterpiece, but burned fuel as rapidly as you’d expect in an enormously heavy car. Still, it could move the car 0-60 in 12 seconds and on past 100.
Bodywork, of course, was to customer choice

, and most examples carried every luxury and convenience feature imaginable at the time. A very few were built with sporty styles, those by Saoutchik being the most memorable and striking. The J12 is a genuine international Classic of interest today only to a very fortunate few.

1930 Chrysler 70 Roadster

The 1930 Chrysler 70 Roadster was the result of Walter Chrysler’s instinct for survival

. His instincts told him to revamp the product line in 1930, one year after the stock market crash although it had not yet affected sales.
Walter P. Chrysler accomplished his dream — to start his own automobile company — and advertised his success with 15-foot chromium-nickel steel-winged radiator caps shining from the corners of New York’s tallest building. It was “The fulfillment in metal and masonry of a one-man dream,” said one critic of the completed Chrysler Building.
This 1930 Chrysler Series 70 roadster, owned by Paul Miller, of La Crescenta, California, was one result of this strategy. The 70 was the next level up from the lower-cost Series 66, but offered more luxury options like the higher-priced Series 77. All Series 70 cars included a narrow-profile radiator and bowl-shaped headlights. Miller’s car was produced early in 1930, as it has the Art Deco, pennant-shaped pennon hood louvers and its parking lamps mounted on the windshield posts.
The Series 70 roadster featured a leather interior, including storage pouches in both doors. You can see a number of Series 70 options offered by Chrysler on our feature car: front and rear bumpers, dual side-mounted spare tires, wire-spoke wheels, pedestal sidemount mirrors, folding luggage rack, fog lamps, and solid paint.
The winged radiator cap design that figures so prominently on the Chrysler Building was manufactured by George Stant, whose company was known for its meticulously engineered ornamental radiator caps. Although frequently referred to as Mercury wings, the Chrysler Corporation attributes the design inspiration to a Viking helmet.
Chrysler was the first in the industry to use the Stromberg downdraft carburetor, so called because it was positioned at a level above the fuel tank. The early 70 used the inline L-head six-cylinder engine

, providing 218.6 cid and 75 bhp. A Delco Remy ignition, mechanical fuel pump, hydraulic brakes, four-speed manual transmission, and paraflex springs were standard mechanical features. Chrysler produced an estimated 1431 roadsters, and sold them for an average price of $1,345.
Miller’s scrupulous restoration of this Series 70 would make its uncompromising creator proud.

1931-1933 Chrysler Imperial Eight

Said Joseph W. Frazer, the Chrysler sales executive who later helped create the Willys Jeep and cofounded Kaiser-Frazer: “W. P. was always looking for finest hours, and if one wasn’t immediately available, his impulse was to manufacture it.” Veteran designer Alex Tremulis recalled: “He had as good an eye for line and style as Edsel Ford” — as the photographs in this article easily prove.

An early love was the horseless carriage. In 1908, Walter went out on a limb to buy a $5,000 Locomobile

, tore it apart to see how it worked, reassembled it, then promptly crashed it because he had not yet learned to drive.
He took a 50 percent pay cut to join General Motors, where he rose to become president of Buick before slamming the door on GM President Billy Durant (“and slam it he did,” as Beverly Kimes wrote). In 1920, W.P. Chrysler struck off on his own.

After bailing out Willys-Overland, where he made a million a year turning the old company around with a new product mix, Chrysler took control of ailing Maxwell-Chalmers. With the help of talented professionals he’d brought over from General Motors and Willys, he stanched the red ink and turned Maxwell into Chrysler Corporation by 1925.
The year before, he built the first car bearing his own name, the Chrysler Six: good looking, fast, priced below the competition (Buick, of course), and equipped with novel four-wheel hydraulic brakes. It was an instant success.

The Chrysler Six helped to build a new automotive empire. In 1928, Chrysler bought Dodge Brothers, another old-line firm in need of new blood. That same year, he announced the low-priced Plym?outh and created DeSoto, first to plug the Plymouth-Dodge price gap and later to bridge Dodge and Chrysler.
Almost overnight, Chrysler had a General Motors-like price hierarchy — “a car for every purse and purpose,” as GM president Alfred P. Sloan put it — the prerequisite of empire. By the time Walter Chrysler died in 1940, the corporation he had built was number two in the industry, a position it would hold until 1952.

“Imperial” as a designation for upper-end Chryslers had been around since early 1926 and the six-cylinder Series 80. But the 1931-1933 generation stood apart, riding the company’s longest wheelbases yet and powered by its first eight-cylinder engines.
Eight cylinders was a clear need if Chrysler wanted a luxury image, and when W.P. Chrysler went for something, he went whole hog. For the 1931 Chrysler line, he launched no fewer than four straight eights, ranging from 240 to 385 cid. The largest, running in nine main bearings and exclusive to Imperial, made 125 bhp with standard 5.2:1 compression. An optional 6.2:1 “Red Head” raised horsepower to 135.

With the Zeder-Skelton-Breer trio’s traditional thoroughness, the new eights were painstakingly developed and extensively tested by Toby Couture, chief experimental engineer. Prototypes ran as disguised 1929-1930 models or with badges reading “Eagle Special.”
Chrysler historian Don Butler has described how these cars were thrashed for 200,000 miles on all kinds of roads, from deserts to mountains, “open-throttled on lonely highways, thumping the bumps of rough side-roads … challenged to come apart.” By the end of this torture, the new engines were bulletproof.
Some of the most memorable Chrysler Imperials of the time were LeBarons. Continue to the next page to learn more about the creation of the LeBaron.

How to Install New Entertainment Electronics in Your Car

Is it even possible that there’s an automobile owner with a soul so dead that they’ve never said to him- or herself, “My car needs more gadgets”? Well, yes, it’s likely that there are a few car owners out there like this; however, unless you’ve spent a huge amount of cash on a luxury car with all the options, it’s doubtful that your car has every piece of automotive entertainment electronics currently on the market. Does it have an iPod dock? Can it play MP3 files off a CD? Does it have state-of-the-art speakers? A backup camera? Can your car parallel park itself? Do you have a grille-mounted (stealth) radar detector? A top-of-the-line navigation system? Has your mouth started to water yet?
If you’re wondering how you can upgrade your car’s electronics, we’re here to help. There’s a lot of aftermarket gadgetry out there at fairly reasonable prices and it’s hard to get out of an electronics warehouse store without seeing a gizmo or two that would make your driving experience more pleasurable. But here’s the big question: How do you get all of that gear into your car? Many retailers will happily install your new device for you at a price, but the cost of installation could easily double or triple the cost of your new toy

What Hiking Shoes to Wear in the Costa Rican Jungle

The best footwear for hiking in the jungles of Costa Rica is waterproof, sturdy, lightweight and protective against jagged rocks, forest debris and poisonous bites from native creatures like snakes. The hiking footwear should assist you in holding solid traction on the challenging trails you will encounter. Hiking in Costa Rica is often wet and muddy. And the climate can range from very cold to very warm before your jungle hike is over.
Rough and rugged hiking boots aren’t always the best option for trekking through Costa Rica’s jungle trails. Wearing rain boots that graze the knees keep your feet dry and shield you from mud. Rain boots are lightweight and non-constricting. They also provide better lower leg protection from jagged rocks or sharp vegetation, as well as guard against bites from the reptiles and amphibians that are native to the region.
While hiking through Costa Rica’s jungles you can count on covering terrain that varies widely, depending upon season and location. Hiking shoes that emphasize warmth are best suited to high-altitude regions like Irazu, Poas and Chirripo. Water-resistant footwear is most important if your adventure takes you to lowland locations such as Corcovado and Sarapiqui, especially during the rainy season.

. Wearing open-toed shoes increases the risk of abrasions, bites and fractures. Even though sandals have the advantages of being lightweight and comfortable and drying out quickly, wearing them on Costa Rica’s jungle trails is not the safest choice.
Hikers place a high priority on traveling light. Some Costa Rica jungle hikes can involve trekking a combination of mountainous, rain forest and beach environments. For the sake of versatility, wearing sneakers is a viable option. But sneakers tend to absorb and retain moisture, so bring along an extra pair so that one water-logged pair has time to dry while you proceed on your hike in the spare pair.
