the BMW i8 Google Glass Experience

Hey Guys

There are some certain things that just match perfectly together, just like pitch and sulfur, the sunlight after a summer rain or the BMW i8, the new Plugin-Hybrid Sportscar by BMWi, and Google Glass.

If you should be lucky to travel from, to or via the german Airports Munich, Frankfurt or Hamburg you should definitely pay attention to an BMW i8 and some, surely, helpful stuff. And if they have a free Google Glass around, jackpot! You should definitely take the time to try this BMW i8 Google Glass Experience!

Testing UBER thanks to #UBERCadillac in Geneva

Hey Guys

There are definitely not many moments in life when you get picked up by a driver with a Cadillac Escalade and he drives you where ever you want to and also hands over your luggage after arriving at your destination.
