So a while back I trekked all the way to Cyberjaya to help with a panel on tech infrastructure and architecture for MaGIC Academy, and on the way back…whilst I was conducting a phone-interview for a newspaper no less (hands-free of course) I heard a weird noise and my car felt a little odd. My […]

Bosch Clean Diesel – Diesel Vehicles Are Not Dirty, Smelly Or Sluggish
