Welcome to the Age of the Internet – for your car!

Thursday, January 7th, 2010

This week Audi introduced a device that is basically an internet-based computer built right into the front panel of your dashboard. Other car makers, including Ford, plan to introduce similar technology, according to a published report released today.
Safety advocates see this as a bad move for obvious reasons, but advocates see it as an opportunity to enhance the car driving experience. You can catch more details in today’s New York Times http://www.nytimes.com/2010/01/07/technology/07distracted.html?hp.
CET computer service and repair wants your opinion. Is it a good idea to have cars with internet devices installed that can be used while the car is in motion?
