Important news for the carless! Car-sharing companies Zipcar and Flexcar announced their merger today, which doesn't actually mean much for New York Zipcar members unless they'd like to rent in one of the cities currently only served by Flexcar (like Philly, if you have some ugly friends to visit). Zipcar is totally awesome for things like impulse trips to the nearest Sonic or Dairy Queen, so we recommend it highly. [Zipcar]
