To the end of the year there’s always best and worst lists drifting over the internet if it comes to cars, computers or anything else you could imagine. The Auto site of Canada Wheels.ca has given us a look at the car purchasing habits across the nation in a list of Canada’s top 10 worst selling new cars and trucks for 2010 which is not exactly filled with many new intriguing information, other than the actual sales amounts for each model, which is indeed interesting to me. Could you ever imagine how many Lexus GS models actually left the lot of dealerships? only 215. This number is only horrible enough for it to make it to the 5th place on the list.
You can click through the gallery to see for yourself for how 2010 played out for sales within 10 cars, wagons, SUV’s, and trucks.
Previously, the week before this one it was noted by MacRumors that developers have begun integrating support for Apple’s iAd mobile ads in their updates for apps with a few apps beginning to display placeholder banner and test advertisements in front of the programs official launch today, July 1st. Just in time, the iAd ads are beginning to turn on and go live, but their existance shows to be kind of spotty in the iAd-compatible apps at this current time with ads displaying really only once in awhile when other apps just show a blank space where the ad is supposed to be.
There is one ad (iAd) that some people came across (through Tiptitude) which is for the Nissan Leaf, a soon-to-come electric car that’s going to launch this coming December this year but has already been receiving alot of buzz and reservations. This advertisement was not a total suprise, and it was demoed by Apple CEO Steve Jobs during his own keynote at Apple’s WWDC previously last month.
This advertisement shows on a small banner which is compatible in some apps and does carry a known “iAd” mark right below the right corner for recognition purposes. Touching the ad with your finger launches it in a all-screen experience, and anyone can leave the ad any time they want and return to the app by pressing on the X button at the very top of the iAd.
With this demo previewed by Jobs, the iAd official is a video offered by Nissan and has an intro in video/audio right before it shows an interacting GUI where people can learn more about the Nissan Leaf and show their interest in this vehicle.
Just new: The ad agency and Nissan Chiat/Day have revealed a overview of the new Leaf iAd.
