Chrysler To Offer In-Car Internet Access
The Washington Post reports Chrysler is adding in-car internet access to their hot selling– I mean vehicles. Web access will arrive via cell phone towers; users will need a wireless phone carrier to ensure continuous service. Chrysler is touting themselves as the first car company to provide in-car internetage, conveniently overlooking " ConnectedDrive." BMW's system offered Google access last year; it's expanding to unrestricted www access this year. (Chrysler will be the first to offer internet access in the U.S.) Regardless where it's offered or who offers it, the idea of some n00b playing Halo 3 while blasting down the interstate at 75mph is really scary. Yes, I know there'll be built-in safeguards, but it won't take the MMORPG crowd very long to figure out how to override them. In fact, the hack should be on the internet before Chrysler buyers can access the internet via their car to get it.
