The Future is Here.... Almost
Brian Cooley of CNET TV reports in from the 2008 Geneva Auto Show on the new unrestricted, built in access to the internet that BMW will be launching on select models in Europe. BMW is the first automaker to launch this service. They are using the EDGE technology to connect to the internet. This is the same technology used by many mobile phones, including Apple's iPhone.
BMW is also partnering with Google to download maps for navigation too.
Think about it. I can be driving through Europe in my new BMW and listening to my favorite "Old School" songs on MEGA from Phoenix. You know the other manufacturers can not be far behind. This is the future and the implications are tremendous across all electronic media.
I love technology.........
