SUV Antidote: Subaru Legacy 3.0 R

Global warming or not, all wheel drive (AWD) is a blessing in the wintertime. But for folks who are more of the sporting type, as opposed to the utilitarian, a SUV is overkill.

Enter the Subaru Legacy 3.0 R.

I spent a week with a Legacy 3.0 R and came away with great respect for Subaru. This is one wicked winter ride.

I’ll freely admit it. I’d never been behind the wheel of a Subaru before, other than that little Subaru Brat I briefly ogled back in high school. I had preconceptions.

The Subaru Legacy 3.0 R isn’t just an antidote for the SUV epidemic. This little AWD sport sedan rivals some of the offerings of the likes of Audi and BMW.

    I haven’t had a chance to spend much time with the Google+ app since it crashes on all of the iOS5 betas. However there is a huge problem with it, and frankly one that should have prevented Apple from approving it. It doesn’t work at all on the iPad or iPod touch. Presumeably this is because of the location and SMS features, but the correct behavior (and one followed by just about every other app) is to simply disable those features on platforms which don’t support them. This choice by Google shows demonstrates a rather half-arsed approach and doesn’t bode well for the quality of the app beneath the covers. Further showing Googles lack of attention to detail was the fact that when I attempted to use the support link from the apps iTunes page, it takes you to the support website for the Android version of the app. I had to dig around to try and find iOS version’s support page.
