In-car Face­book be­rated

South Waikato News - - MOTORING -

De­spite re­sis­tance from the US Trans­porta­tion sec­re­tary Ray Lahood, GM is to pro­ceed with its push to in­clude an in-car Face­book ap­pli­ca­tion for its OnS­tar nav­i­ga­tion and driver aid de­vice in fu­ture prod­ucts.

The func­tion would al­low driv­ers to lis­ten to Face­book mes­sages and update their sta­tus, which has en­gen­dered much crit­i­cism.

Mean­while across town, Ford is look­ing at a Twit­ter in­ter­face for its cars. Just think, not only would you have some­thing to do in traf­fic jams you’d be able to cause them in the first place.
