So, someone over at Rolls-Royce trusted our Car Tech guys enough to lend them a 2007 Rolls-Royce Phantom to review. Wow--fancy! It even has a hood ornament that retracts into the hood when the doors are locked. Now no one will steal the "Spirit of Ecstasy" and make a necklace. Is car bling still cool? Is the word "bling" even cool?
We don't know how it happened, but Rolls-Royce let us borrow a Phantom for a few days. And not only did we find a place to plug in our iPod, we also found a navigation system hidden behind a clock, and a Bluetooth telephone system with a velvet-lined tray for our cell phone. We've got 29 photos of the 2007 Rolls Royce-Phantom.
As cars make up a large part of any populated landscape, they should also serve as public works of art. Every road should be like a car show, with automotive manufacturers' best designs put forward. In that spirit, we've collected the best-looking cars we've reviewed in the last year. These are the cars that get people looking and nodding in appreciation of excellent automotive design. Look at some pretty cars.

CNET editors had a chance to spend some time with the new Archos 605 WiFi portable video player. So far, we think it looks like a real gem. And the new DVR interface is a drastic improvement over the previous VCR-style recording interface. Check out the Archos 605 WiFi.
