I love iTunes.
I’ve just made my first full album purchase from the iTunes store. I reached back to get in touch with my inner Metalhead and bought Iron Maiden’s “Live After Death”, which I haven’t heard for at least 10 years. I would have bought just the songs I wanted but you could only get The Rime of The Ancient Mariner by buying the full album.
I’ll have to check out how that Trollpod device is coming along.
And then buy an iPod.
SaabVideos.com should be getting some content up from the Saab Owners Convention in the next few days. Keep an eye out. I’m hoping there’ll be some film of the ’roundtable’ discussion featuring Saab USA Managing Director, Jay Spenchian.
I published Jay’s speech to the convention a few days ago. As I read it, I was frustrated a little by the corporate flavour of the content. I’ve been assured that the roundtable was quite a bit more frank and that all subjects were on the table.
Here’s another fuel option arriving in the UK to make us all a little more jealous. Honestly, the UK’s got it all except decent weather. They get cars that the US can’t, engines that the US can’t. If only it was warm and they were good at sport – it’d be a paradise for your average petrolheaded guy.
Now they’re about to up the RON ante and introduce V-Power, a new 99-RON fuel from Shell that’s been formulated in conjunction with the Ferrari F1 team.
UPDATE: Judging from the entries in comments, it seems the poms are getting this a few years after at least some of their European counterparts.
Having just upgraded to 98-RON here in Hobart I can honestly tell you it’s worth the change. Can’t wait to try this new gear. If it takes as long to drift down here as things usually do then I should be able to fill up my Saab 9-21xx during my retirement in 2030.
We’re approaching the end of the month again, which means a whole slew of sales figures will be raining down, most likely from early next week. That’ll be two-thirds of the year done and dusted and we should be able to guage an accurate figure as to how the total sales figure might end up. I’m still gunning for 150,000 but it’ll be a tough target.
It’s not often I link to Saabnet. As far as I know I’m still banned (it must be around 400 days or so by now).
This is worth sharing though. Mike Lynch, one of the regulars there, is a Saab dealer in California and he’s just posted a notice saying that there’ll be a few rebates going on around the Labour Day holiday period.
Here’s the posting. Short and sweet:
Just announced, effective tomorrow, $500 Bonus Cash (rebate after tax) on all Saab Passenger cars.
$1,500 on 9-7Xs !!!!!!!
A follow-up posting also notes that this is over and above the current offers.
