Submission + - Are Cars the Ultimate Mobile Devices? (mobilesynergetics.com) 1

DeviceGuru writes: A recent student project sponsored by Ford involved equipping a pair of Ford Fiestas with telematics equipment and onboard computers capable of Internet access. Along the way from Ann Arbor, Mich. to the Maker Faire in San Mateo, Calif, the Fiestas, driven by Ford engineers and University of Michigan students, automatically tweeted location and other status details, leading a Ford researcher to claim it to have been 'the first time vehicles [have been] socially connected through the Internet during a cross-country trip.' When you think about it, cars have got it all: displays, user interfaces, GPS, power, and — coming soon — storage capacity and always-on wireless, making them candidates to become the 'ultimate mobile device.'
