Ford aims to become mobility solutions firm 26.5.2015 Asian Age: Business
In a move that is indicative of the tectonic shifts underway in the automobile industry’s thinking and of the coming fundamental changes to how we live and commute, Ford Motor on Monday announced a partnership with Chinese home appliance giant Haier, solar power player Trina and power management company Delta to work towards integrating households and mobility with renewable energy. Ford announced the first of its kind initiative, called MyEnergi Lifestyle, part of its ongoing experiments with ‘smart mobility’ as it attempts to go beyond being just a car-maker to a ‘mobility solutions’ provider, at the first edition of the Consumer Electronics Show in Shanghai.

Speaking about the amount of funds that went into making the EVO 4, Ayush Verma, marketing manager, IIT B racing, said, “The institute had given `15 lakh for building and developing the car. However, as this is a unique car, more funds were needed and the magnanimous dole outs by sponsors ensured that the car was ready for the competition,” said Mr Verma. He further added that as all the funds provided by the institute and sponsors were exhausted ...

Tomorrowland: how Walt Disney’s strange utopia shaped the world of tomorrow 21.5.2015 The Guardian -- Front Page
Disneyland is celebrating its 60th birthday with a movie version of one of its most famous attractions. But do we still need the theme park now that the rest of the world has been Disneyfied? Welcome to the future. Or is it the past? In Tomorrowland , Disney’s new adventure movie, George Clooney and friends risk life and limb to reach the utopian realm of the title, and it looks pretty much like we expected the future to look, at least back in the 1960s: a pristine, shopping-mall sort of place with soaring glass spires and flying trains and happy people of all nations wearing coloured boiler suits. But here in the real world (a relative term, admittedly) you can visit Tomorrowland today. As many millions of visitors know, it is already an area of Disney’s theme parks, devoted to the same type of optimistic techno-futurism Tomorrowland the movie espouses.
