Screens are slowly usurping traditional gauges, but automakers still insist on using analog approximations despite the freedom of a digital canvas. The designers at Ustwo took a hard look at exactly what drivers need and came up with a solution, and it's brilliant, if not exactly sexy. Ustwo, which the Verge points out is best known for Frank Underwood's favorite game, Monument Valley, than its work in user interface design, put together a massive tome (literally, it's an ebook) on how in-car interfaces could be reworked for the modern era.   more...

HONG KONG - China on Thursday lowered its economic growth target for this year to "approxmately 7 percent," a significant if widely anticipated development that signals the Communist Party's determination to shift to more sustainable development. In an annual report to the National People's Congress, the Party-controlled legislature, Prime Minister Li Keqiang set a target for gross domestic product to rise by around 7 percent this year. That is down from a target of around 7.5 percent that the government set for 2014, which it missed by a whisker. Last year's actual expansion of 7.4 percent was the country's slowest since 1990.   more...

EASTLAKE, Ohio - In the winter 2015 version of the axiom "No good deed goes unpunished," a man was allegedly throttled and shoved for helping his neighbor clear her sidewalk.

He will be arraigned March 17 in Willoughby Municipal Court and can't leave snowy Ohio until he appears in court. This suburb about 20 miles northeast of Cleveland has at least 12 to 14 inches of snow on the ground, according to the National Weather Service.   more...

In its requests, the AP asked for her full schedules and calendars and for details on the State Department's decision to grant a special position to a longtime Clinton aide, Huma Abedin, among other documents. The oldest request, the news organization said, was made in March 2010. "We believe it's critically important that government officials and agencies be held accountable to the voters," said AP's general counsel, Karen Kaiser.   more...
