Thank you Toyota, Lexus

Toyota and Lexus aren't showing anything we haven't seen before, but they win the award for the most journalist friendly booth.

Their little padded chaises longues not only are comfortable, but upon further inspection, I discovered that they are 220-volt powered and have CAT5 cable dongles for rapid Internet access. If you aren't fortunate to get a bench, the wi-fi signal doesn't require begging the booth staff for a password.

Now that's customer service.
