Cars are talking


- No it is not the Disney movie. Siri, the personal assistant that is now part of most iDevices is coming to a vehicle near you. It will integrate with the internal computer and be easily accessible with a button on the steering wheel similar to volume and cruise controls.

And that's not all...


Cars are also Driving Themselves

Based on the latest tests, these vehicles can hold their own on the streets and the highway.
