    "Electric Bikes"

    The Zoomi is cool. If you like cruiser style electric bikes, check out the Pedego Comfort Cruiser.

    "Detroit meltdown"

    The property values in Wayne County as reported at Freep.com are badly skewed because the median is dragged downward dramatically by the only city that saw a real estate "boom" in 2008: Detroit, where speculators have being buying up huge amounts of property for pennies on the dollar. Exclude Detroit and the rest of the county saw the kinds of declines shown for neighboring Oakland and Macomb: really bad, but not anything like 70 percent declines.

    "Thanks!"

    @ebikelover: Thanks for the tip. Electric bikes admittedly aren't our field, so the Pedego info is interesting. Curious that it clocks in at the same price point as the Zoomi: www.pedego.com
    .
    @Kevin: Thanks for the insight. We'll sleep easier tonight--well, you know, slightly easier.

    "Apple Iphone"

    What happened to phones that just make phone calls? I miss those.
