Clean, Well-Maintained Car Worth More

 

Bethesda, MD — Keeping your car clean will significantly help preserve its overall value, according to the Car Care Council.

“Keeping your vehicle clean not only protects your valuable investment, it also fosters a sense of pride and accomplishment,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “It’s a task that takes very little money or effort, but delivers huge returns.”

Polishing your vehicle once every six months and washing it once a week prevents the buildup of damaging chemicals and dirt that may harm the vehicle’s finish. In addition to regular care, it is important to watch for any dents, dings, scratches or cracked glass. These problems, when left unattended, can lead to more expensive repairs down the line. «Read the rest of this article»

Statement by Apple on iPhone 4 Pre-Orders

 

Cupertino, CA — Tuesday, Apple and its carrier partners took pre-orders for more than 600,000 of Apple’s new iPhone 4. It was the largest number of pre-orders Apple has ever taken in a single day and was far higher than we anticipated, resulting in many order and approval system malfunctions.

Many customers were turned away or abandoned the process in frustration. We apologize to everyone who encountered difficulties, and hope that they will try again or visit an Apple or carrier store once the iPhone 4 is in stock.
