Scroll Down the Page!

I often read blogs that can be pages long. The most recent comment is often at the very bottom of the page. On a Mac or PC, it’s easy to scoll up or down a page using various methods. It is a little more work on a mobile device such as a tablet or phone. While jumping to the top is easy enough (just tap the top center of the screen), there is no built in feature to jump to the bottom of a page.

Well, with a little JavaScript saved as an bookmark it is easy.
Bring up a page, any page, and then bookmark it saving the bookmark name as “Scroll Down”. Now, go back and edit it. Make sure you saved the name as Scroll Down and then put the following JavaScript in the address.
Go ahead and save the changes. Now, when you want to scroll to the bottom of the page, just select the Scroll Down book mark and the page will quickly scroll to the bottom!
Waaa laa! Easy!

2014 NAIAS

North American International Auto Show

I had the pleasure of going to the Press Week event at the North American International Auto Show 2014. This is an event where the global automotive community (and any press just interested in the impact of all things automotive) come together to learn the latest news and current events.
People from around the world come to the industry’s most substantive annual event. We also experienced the most anticipated new vehicle introductions. We joined the industry’s top leaders, thinkers and enthusiast to see what was new!

And what we saw did not disappoint us. As many of you know I am a Ford fan. The all new Ford F-150 with it’s all aluminum body and the amazing new Mustang alone made the trip worth while.

Ford had a separate section they put together for media and bloggers and they really went all out. We had visits from Allen Mullaly and many others from the industry including race car drivers.

It was an amazing time. I met and talked with many Ford leaders as well as some very famous and very personable race drivers! I met John Force who happens to be very funny(no pun intended) and is the world record holder in Funny Car drag racing, Greg Foutz (Off Road) who recently drove an (disguised as a 2014) all aluminum bodied F-150 with the new 2.7 EcoBoost in the Baja 1000 (check out the video here )and then drove from California to Dearborn! I had the pleasure of meeting Hall of Fame NASCAR driver Ned Jarrett and his son Dale. I also met Vaughn Gittin Jr. (Formula Drift) and his lovely girlfriend along with Brian Deegan (he rides and drives anything with wheels!). There we others as well, but we ran out of time before the showing of clips from the upcoming movie Need for Speed.

Ford was an incredible host as well and they really know how to take care of their guests. I thank Cole Quinnell and Scott Monty from Ford for there personal attention to us and making sure we had a great time. We not only went to the auto show, but to introduction events, breakout sessions and drives. We also got a surprise and toured the Rouge Truck plant as well. After that we met the designer of the new 2015 Mustang Kemal Curic and the team that designed and guided the all new 2015 Mustang.

And of course, none of this wouldn’t have been possible if I hadn’t been invited by my friend Frank Bisono! What a trip!
