There are plenty of ultra-mobile computers on the market, and most of them are beleaguered little gizmos: half the size of a laptop, but also half the speed, half the storage, half a keyboard, and in short, half-assed. In that light, it's nice to spend some time with a little machine that is full of real PC capability -- even if it comes at full PC price. It's called the Model 02, and it's made by San Fransisco-based company called OQO. The company's mission: shrink a full-scale Windows PC down to pocket size, without sacrificing usability. I'll save you the suspense: they've done it right.

The Bugatti Veyron is currently the most expensive (1.5 mill) and fastest sports car in the world. Hailed by many as the greatest automobile ever made, it features all the most recent automotive advancements in one package. The exotic two-passenger Bugatti Veyron is powered by a four-turbocharged, 8-liter, 16-cylinder engine that creates 1001 horsepower. A complicated 7-speed transmission and AWD system allows the Veyron to control the 1001hp. Its interior is almost completely leather upholstery, save the center console, and its body is fashioned with carbon fiber to offset the weight of the powertrain. Some unique features are a large rear spoiler that tips forward at elevated speeds to act as an air brake and a large interior cabin designed to accommodate six-foot seven-inch drivers.
