Jerry Seinfeld sued a California dealer in classic cars Monday, saying the company has left the comedian stranded in a dispute over whether a 1958 Porsche he sold is authentic. Seinfeld sought unspecified damages in his lawsuit in Manhattan federal court from European Collectibles of Costa Mesa, California. "Mr. Steinfeld, who is a very successful comedian, does not need to supplement his income by building and selling counterfeit sports cars," the lawsuit said. The lawsuit said Seinfeld owns one of the world's largest collections of Porsches and had never dealt with the California company before it solicited his agent to propose his purchase of the vintage vehicle. A drama about a road trip through the segregated South wins top prize at the Oscars.

Phoebe Wall Howard Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 AM EDT Sep 24, 2018 With many key fobs vulnerable to hacking unless they are, say, wrapped with aluminum foil, security experts say carmakers will soon require fingerprinting. You heard correctly. Fingerprints are required to cash checks at the bank. Fingerprints are used to access mobile phones. Cars are next. Not just to open the door, but to start the engine. “This technology will be used in cars in two to four years,” said Godfrey Cheng, corporate vice president for Silicon Valley-based Synaptics. “Driver identification will be revolutionary.” Understanding that car fobs present an increasing security risk, auto companies are following the lead of personal technology devices and moving toward vehicle access through fingerprinting, facial recognition and retina scans. This is not Mission Impossible. This is real life. The Free Press in July reported that cybersecurity experts … [Read more...] about Get rid of key fobs; car security to shift to fingerprints

Here's our definitive ranking of Miami-Dade's most corrupt cities. How did the Moorish-themed town get here? Here's the tl;dr version: a federal graft probe starting as early as 2013; a city government that decided not to keep any real spending records; officials who thought taxpayer money could be spent on lavish birthday parties and huge holiday bonuses; elected officials convicted of using their employees to extort local businesses; a city commissioner who killed himself while facing bribery charges; and a morning FBI raid on city hall in 2016. Merrett Stierheim, the former county manager brought in to "clean up" the place, quit in March 2017 and said it was the "worst case" he'd seen in his long career. He said he left with "more questions than answers" about how the city became such a miserable failure. Well, there's one obvious answer: Put the entire Opa-locka government directly in the trash can. The graft doesn't end there. In 2010, a New Times investigation revealed that Miami … [Read more...] about Ranking Miami-Dade’s Most Corrupt Cities
