997 Porsche 911 Cabriolet Voted Best Automobile in the World

Porsche AG, of Stuttgart Germany, was just awarded the "Best Automobile in the World" designation in the Cabriolet category for the current Porsche 911 Carrera. 95,000 readers of the German specialist journal "Auto Motor und Sport" voted the open topped Carrera into first place among a field of 49 other cabriolets, roadsters and spiders.

The title of "Best Automobile in the World" follows its winning of the "Autozeitung" Auto Trophy in November in the categories "Best Sports Automobile" and "Best Cabriolet over 30,000 Euro".

I couldn't agree more.

In addition to superb design and engineering, Quality really is job #1 as well. Porsche just two weeks ago took the top spot in J.D. Powers' 2020 Initial Quality Survey, beating out Infiniti, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Volkswagen, Lincoln, Ford, Cadillac, etc by significant margins.

Congratulations, team!

In other news, one of our four pending Adobe ColdFusion 8 reviews posted today in Software Editorial, A UK-based online magazine that specializes in software reviews and recommendations. Some excerpts:

"Companies choose ColdFusion to create complex and robust mission-critical applications for internal and external access. While there are a number of ways to integrate web content with relational data, it is a simple task with ColdFusion, and the support for modern technology (Ajax, .NET and Java) is a valid reason to consider using this product."

"So many positives. The application administration interface is simple and intuitive – it should be no problem for anyone with experience administering a web site or application. And I like the new server monitor, which is an impressive Flash application that is as well organized as any administration interface I’ve used over the years."

"I believe the ability to dynamically generate PDFs is indispensible. Anyone that ever had to handle source and version control for documents at any company will be pleased that they can keep just one version of each document and let ColdFusion create PDFs as needed. Very nice."

"This is a good product for companies already using older versions of ColdFusion, or companies looking to move older legacy systems to a newer, more robust solution that easily integrates the application and relational database data. The interface is intuitive, just like Adobe’s other products, and I did not encounter any errors during my tests. I have used other Adobe products to create and support web applications, but like that ColdFusion lets me build applications – not just linked HTML pages – for use on the internet."
