The GM Recall: Did the auto industry forget the lessons of the Pinto?

 It seems that the auto industry does not learn from past mistakes.  When the design of the Ford Pinto was found to be defective and the cause of the explosions that killed people in accidents involving the car, it was discovered that Ford had prior knowledge of the defect but decided that the cost of recalling and fixing the popular model would be greater than the amount of money the company was likely to pay in lawsuits over the accidents.

E-Cigarettes: Helpful or Hurtful?

When the huge pharmacy and drug store chain CVS announced that it would no longer sell cigarettes in the name of promoting public health, it was a brilliant public relations strategy.  People championed their altruism for being willing to stand up to big tobacco and forego the profits that come with it. But was that what CVS was doing? CVS sells e-cigarettes, which is expected to become a 2 billion dollar industry this year that is currently unregulated. Analysts predict that if current trends hold, the e-cigarette market will overtake the traditional cigarette market by 2023. CVS's altruism looks like a good business decision.

Denver Prohibits Open Carry of Firearms; a clash of cultures in Colorado?

Colorado has long been considered a permissive state with respect to firearms.  The state still is--except apparently for Denver.  Denver recently challenged the state's preemption law and won, allowing the city to prohibit the open carry of firearms and the unlicensed open car carry of firearms. Similarly, Castle Rock, a county seat in the Denver Metro Area, blocked the repeal of an open carry prohibition, continuing the area's ban on the open carry of firearms. What is going on?

Google Glass:  From distracted driving issues to privacy concerns, is Google Glass ready to go mainstream?

 In October 2013, a woman in California wearing Google Glass became the first person to be pulled over for speeding and then issued an additional citation for wearing the headgear.  The officer who issued the citation applied a law aimed at distracted driving which prohibits driving while watching television.  The citation against the Google Glass was eventually dismissed due to a common problem with applying old laws to new technology: lack of proof.  There was no proof that the Google Glass was operating at the time that the driver was pulled over, and if it was operating as a television rather than a navigational device similar to a GPS, which is legal.
