Ford offers Twitter for cars

A couple of week ago, Ford announced that cars with its next-generation SYNC system will be turning the entire car into a Wi-Fi hot spot, or as I see it, encourage distracted driving.

Yesterday, USA Today reports that Ford will be incorporating a Twitter application into its next-generation SYNC in-car communication system.

“Drivers won’t be able to compose tweets (though that may come), but the system reads them as they stream in. “

Not good.
