Summary:
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The Tesla Model S P85 is a revolutionary car that says goodbye to the internal combustion engine and hello to the electric motor. But how will this all electric car do when the road gets steep and the altitude gets to two miles above sea level. From Dillion, Colorado to the Eisenhower Tunnel US I-70 climbs 8 miles to a maximum elevation of 11,158 feet or 3,401 meters. That's enough elevation and grade to test a small economy car like the 2014 Ford Fiesta and the Chevy Sonic Turbo, but how will the 2014 Tesla Model S P85+ perform on the same stretch of American Highway? In Part 3 of another accurate, informative and fun TFLcar mashup review Nathan, Emme, Andre and Roman take on the Ike Gauntlet in the new 2014 Ford Fiesta and Chevy Sonic Turbo and the most powerful electric production car...the 2014 Tesla Model S P85+ to see how these small cars handle the steep grade and lack of air density in the Mountains of Colorado.

FAA Stalls Amazon's Plans By Restricting Commercial Drones

FAA Stalls Amazon's Plans By Restricting Commercial Drones

TheStreet (June 25, 2014) — Amazon's hopes of launching "Prime Air" were put on hold this week by the Federal Aviation Administration. On Monday, the FAA published a document addressing the operation of model airplanes. Buried within the document were regulations that apply to drones, prohibiting their operation. "Any operation not conducted strictly for hobby or recreation purposes could not be operated under the special rule for model aircraft. Clearly, commercial operations would not be hobby or recreation flights. Likewise, flights that are in furtherance of a business, or incidental to a person's business, would not be a hobby or recreation flight" the document stated. In the fall 2013, the FAA said it would aim to come up with a plan to safely integrate drones into airspace by September of 2015 but will likely push that deadline back. For now, Amazon will have to stick with Snail Mail. Video provided by TheStreet
