Meet BlackBerry Buff: the tech offspring of The Blog of Cars

Lately, I’ve considered diversifying my blogging into the realm of technology. So, being a huge fan of BlackBerry devices, I’m trying my hand at tech blogging with BlackBerry Buff. If you’re at all interested in tech, phones, tablets, BlackBerry’s, or just need to kill some time, have a look!


Happy New Year everyone!

Cars and fireworks – perfect combination!

So here it is, 2013. The Mayans were evidently wrong! Throughout 2012, the car industry continued to produce products both great and awful, with the pressure still on to improve fuel economy. 2013 is sure to bring about plenty of interesting changes to reflect the importance of fuel economy. Here’s hoping that they don’t forget to make something exciting while they’re at it – Happy New Year everbody!

PS: With the holiday season wrapping up, I should hopefully be resuming a normal posting schedule soon.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone!

Ford Fiesta RS WRCI know it’s gone a little silent here over the last few days, but don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about you guys! For those of you celebrating, have a very Merry Christmas today, and those who aren’t, I hope you have an excellent holiday nevertheless. While I’m sure it’d be great to spend the day hooning in the snow, make sure you spend some time with your loved ones and eat plenty of good food as well. Have you received any car-related gifts this year?
