SoundMan Car Audio Does World's First iPad In-Dash Install...Makes My Stereo Obsolete

Soon after portable GPS systems were introduced into the market, they made their way into the dashboard of our vehicles.  Next, stereos with built in hard drives found a home above the climate control center of our beloved automobiles.  So it should come as no surprise that only a few short months after being released to the public, the iPad has been ever so elegantly installed into the dash of a technology lover’s truck.

Obama Administration Planning to Buy First 100 Chevy Volts to Leave the Plant

Not too long ago, the federal government released a plan calling for a 30% reduction in their fleet fuel consumption by 2020.

Mazda Planning to Bring Diesel Power to their Mid-Sized Market

North Americans have been practically begging to get their hands on just a few of the diesel powered vehicles available on the other side of the Atlantic. Thankfully, more and more automakers are beginning to realize how popular the oil burning alternative is among Americans, with Mazda looking to be the next to offer a diesel powerplant stateside.

Korea's Naver & Daum Build Better 'Search' Mousetraps Than Google?

While Google is the search engine of choice for the majority of American Internet users, garnering on upwards of 75% of the search market dependent on who you're talking to - it is actually a less sophisticated tool than search engines in Korea. Why would territory the size of the state of Minnesota have more advanced search technology than the Grand Daddy of Search Engines who competes with countries 200 times their size, namely China.

General Motors Exploring Small Urban Transportation Concepts...Introduces EN-V

Our cities are becoming more populated with each passing day, meaning more fuel is being burned and more traffic is packing the already crowded streets.

Transonic Combustion Promising More Efficient Engines through Enhanced Combustion Process

The key to making an internal combustion engine run cleanly and efficiently is the proper delivery of fuel and air.

Augmented Reality For Tablets Goes Where No Man Has Gone Before

While Augmented Reality technology has been a topical point of interest these last couple of weeks at events like SWSWi in Austin and CTIA Wireless 2010 in Las Vegas, there has been very little talk of the suitability of utilizing AR features with the new tablets that will be flooding the market in the next couple of months. Granted, iPad's sin of omission by not including a camera or webcam kind of eliminates them from consideration, but it seems to me that the 10" tablet versus the 3" smartphone screen would provide users with a greater opportunity to view AR overlays, markers, advertising, points of interest and other layers of data that AR is known for.
