Now playing: Watch this: Jeep fulfills our truck dreams with the 2020 Gladiator 1:39 After more than a quarter-century, a pickup model is finally returning to the Jeep brand. The 2020 Jeep Gladiator debuted last Wednesday at the 2018 LA Auto Show, and it surprised with class-leading towing and 4x4 payload figures to go with its Jeep-worthy off-road capabilities, Wrangler-inspired aesthetic and surprisingly full complement of tech features. Not only did Fiat Chrysler Automobiles show off the Gladiator in trail-spec Rubicon form and less-expensive trims, it even showed off a variant loaded with Mopar accessories -- around $8,000 worth of added toys. Jeep Wranglers are among the most-frequently personalized vehicles in the marketplace, so this strategy seems like a particularly smart bed.We like what we see, and judging by the amount of clicks and eyeballs the Gladiator generated at the show for Roadshow and countless other websites, you like it, too.Versus … [Read more...] about Jeep Gladiator, the Wrangler of pickup trucks, ruled the LA Auto Show

You have toddlers, with the most adorable pumpkin, or candy corn onesies, and you want to take them around while it's light out, and before their 7 p.m. bedtime. Sweet. I'm not ready for you at 4 p.m. Frankly, at that time it's just high school latchkey kids at home anyway, and they have no idea where their parents hid the candy. Did you know many cities "set" their hours for when trick or treating should happen? … [Read more...] about Trick or treating etiquette this Halloween is more complex than ever.

It was a veritable lovefest in Milwaukee in July 2017 when Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI) and Foxconn chairman Terry Gou announced their plan to create a heavily subsidized manufacturing plant in southeastern Wisconsin. Walker gushed that Gou, who founded his Taiwan-based company in 1974, was “one of the most remarkable business leaders in the world.” Gou returned the favor by saying, “I’ve never seen this type of governor or leader yet in this world.” Effusive, yet ambiguous. The details of the deal were famously written on the back of a napkin when Gou and the Republican governor first met: a $3 billion state subsidy in return for Foxconn’s $10 billion investment in a Generation 10.5 LCD manufacturing plant that would create 13,000 jobs.

Twelve dependable principles for thriving in a turbulent world The Digital Revolution gets all the headlines these days. But turning slowly beneath the fast-forward turbulence, steadily driving the gyrating cycles of cool technogadgets and gotta-haves, is a much more profound revolution - the Network Economy. This emerging new economy represents a tectonic upheaval in our commonwealth, a social shift that reorders our lives more than mere hardware or software ever can. It has its own distinct opportunities and its own new rules. Those who play by the new rules will prosper; those who ignore them will not. The advent of the new economy was first noticed as far back as 1969, when Peter Drucker perceived the arrival of knowledge workers. The new economy is often referred to as the Information Economy, because of information's superior role (rather than material resources or capital) in creating wealth.
