Tired of that long drive to and from work? Driving boredom getting you down? Feeling out of touch with the internet?
Never fear, the car manufacturers got you covered. It’s called the “infotainment system” and it made a huge splash at the CES in Las Vegas this week. The IT people love it, the safety people hate it, and everyone agrees that it will make distracted drivers even more distracted.
But “Safety is Job One” at Audi. It has a popup when it starts that says, “Please only use the online services when traffic conditions allow you to do so safely.”
Can’t make this stuff up.
