>> This new Nissan Maxima really seems to take some in Infiniti DNA. Now, power comes from Nissan's well-regarded V6 but now 290 horsepower and a CVT automatic carries over.

This 4DSC badge on the rear window reminds us that Nissan still pushes this whole four-door sports car schtick. Inside, the family resemblance to Infiniti is pretty strong. Look at that nav rig, interface controller, and HVAC controls, very Infiniti G. And the sort of goofy, bug-eyed instrument pod carries over from the previous Maxima. [ Music ]

The 2009 Nissan Murano benefits from trickle-down tech options available in Nissan's top models and seems to work best when fully optioned. Regardless of tech options, the Murano is a nimble urban navigator.
It never hurts to borrow from Toyota when building a hybrid.
Kindle lets users "borrow" books from their public library, Pandora gets a site redesign in HTML5, and Facebook has some big changes in store for its F8 developer's conference.
