Have a long commute to work? Why not make the time count by having your email read to you as you drive? All you need is a BMW with ConnectedDrive. Running late for that movie? Toyota’s EnTune service will allow you to buy your tickets from the car. If these in-car distractions cause you to have an accident, no problem, OnStar has partnered with Verizon on a gizmo that will record the accident and you can even use the system to send a Twitter update.
Opps. Fender bender. Going to be late for dinner! #mycarmademedoit
Connected cars are all the rage at this year’s CES and that makes me wonder if this isn’t the next big thing in marketing.
