DailyDirt: Automotive Apps And Other Car Stuff

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The past year brought some significant changes to the car industry, and the upcoming year is bound to bring a lot more. Besides just gasoline and diesel, car buyers are going to have a few more options for how their cars are powered. Fully electric or hybrid cars may only be the start. While we’re still waiting on flying cars to hit the dealerships, here are some quick car-related links.

  • Fans of Saturn say goodbye to the brand in 2010. How many other car brands would (or will?) be so thoughtfully eulogized? [url]
  • Android-powered car radios could create a nice little app market for commuters. If you can’t use your smartphone while driving, Android-powered radios sound like a pretty geeky work-around. [url]
  • Don’t flash your headlights to warn other drivers about speed traps. At least, don’t do it in the UK. [url]
  • Those “How’s My Driving?” bumper stickers are turning to wireless crowdsourcing to find bad drivers. Insurance companies are gonna love this app… if folks really take to ratting on their fellow drivers. [url]
