CNN is reporting today that GM's sale of Hummer to Chinese automaker Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machines Co. Ltd. has fallen through, marking the end of the once venerable car franchise. Being a native of Sugar Land, TX, once known as the Hummer capital of the world, I have been experiencing a sadness that I can only liken to having your 4th favorite donut shop close down. Needless to say, it's rough.
To honor this great car company, and possibly to celebrate that the countries CO2 levels are now going to be exponentially higher, I am going to highlight a few apps that I found while searching for HUMMER.
Warning: I have never used any of these apps, nor do I condone driving vehicles that burn more gasoline in an hour than the whole state of Vermont.
The one I feel most sorry for is 'All about Hummer'. Being tied to the car company must hurt pretty bad, although if the cars become collectors items, this one could be a hit.
3D::Humvee is an app that brings up an interesting thought. What will the US army do without their prized vehicles. It's just not economical to drive troops around in tanks (although it would be pretty safe), so there must be some sort of solution here.
Wait, stop the presses, the solution is this.
Finally, there is 'Inclinometer'. Honestly, this looks like a cool app. It would be a million times cooler with a Mountain Dew on the side if it were used in a Hummer though, but I suppose that a Jeep would do.
