Gaming in a Ford Edge

Hurricane Sandy has absolutely been destroying New York and New Jersey and leaving countless people without power.  Luckily, there is support available to those who need it, with generators, food, housing, and all the necessities.  However, what about those non-necessities, and those hobbies that spawn out of boredom?  Plan on getting some dirty looks if you intend to hook your Xbox 360 up to a generator in a shelter.  If only there was another way?

One crafty individual hooked their Xbox 360 up to the display and power system of their Ford Edge SUV.  This allowed for some privacy, get some game time in, and escape the reality of no power, at least for a little while.  Now, not sure how long this will hold out once they realize there is a fuel shortage.

09 Ford Edge Upgrade

Blindspot Mirror

Blindspot Mirror

Can you tell it’s a slow automotive news day when I have to write a blog post on the 09 Ford Edge getting a special blindspot mirror upgrade?  Jesus, what happened to prototypes making the news, huge engine upgrades, massive recalls?  I suppose outrageous losses and low consumer confidence has those departments in the automotive industry looking for funds.

At any rate, the 09 Ford Edge will offer a blindspot mirror upgrade as an option.  Reportedly this option will actually retail less than the convex little stick on dealies you can grab at Autozone and be BETTER.  These special mirrors are designed specifically for the vehicle they will be on, so you can better see the grandma hanging out 1/4 way back off your drivers side lane.
