It's not every day that were asked to make a mobile device that strives to execute contemporary luxury design without compromise.

North Carolina to Seize Speeding Cars That Fail to Pull Over

Back to our roots, I guess:

"The positive testimony of history is that the State invariably had its origin in conquest and confiscation. No primitive State known to history originated in any other manner." - Albert Jay Nock

Beginning December 1, North Carolina will join Australia in having laws on the book mandating the seizure of vehicles for certain speeding offenses. On June 23, Governor Bev Perdue (D) signed the "Run and You're Done" bill into law which authorizes a county sheriff to take and hold the car of anyone accused -- not convicted -- of speeding away from a police officer. The state House and Senate passed the measure unanimously.
