Chrysler is poised to be the first car manufacturer to offer built-in internet access in its vehicles. The service, called Uconnect Web, uses existing wireless data networks for internet access it then shares with devices in the car via Wi-Fi, essentially turning your car into one big hot spot. The core device, which costs $499 to install, can take advantage of WiMAX or EV-DO networks where available through a service called Autonet. The service will sell for $29 a month. We like the idea for some things, like getting traffic and weather updates on the fly, but is the world ready for motorists that are even more distracted while driving? [Twice via CG]
@darex: I think you might want to read the demographics, since you are dead wrong. [www.time.com] I am not 20, and when I purchased my Jeep I did a side by side comparison of no less then 10 cars of all makes in the same class of SUV and by far, Jeep had the most to offer. Maybe next time you want to do some research before you talk out your ass. Have a nice day.
