I think Korea is now the leader in most things. I watch Korean soaps and they always have the latest phones etc.
I just paid off my Hyundai Accent, my commuter car that gets 32 mpg with a small engine but I still do 80 MPH on 78 in New jersey, if you don't you get run off into the median🙂 It has 170,000 miles on it now, had it 6 years and hope to get at least another 100K out of it. I have a daily 2 way commute of 160 miles, 80 miles one way from Allentown Pa area to middle New Jersey, Piscataway and South Plainfield. It is funny though, it is a 1980's car with a 21 century radio, XM, CD, AM-FM but nothing else, automatic trans, that's it, no electric anything. About 7 years ago I paid 500 bucks for lifetime sub to XM and it is a great service for a long commute, classic radio shows like Gunsmoke, the 6 shooter, and Sherlock Holmes and BBC, NBC, radio Canada, NPR and a bunch of music channels, like Symphony hall or the Greatful dead channel and the like. That and my amateur radio I can talk to people around the world without using cell phone, I have a nice commute.
