Internet Radio Now Available In Your Car


Easy access to Internet radio streaming in your car just became a reality, as Chrysler officially rolls out its UConnect Wi-Fi Web access in vehicles this week. In-car online access will cost $499, with installation fees and a monthly $58 subscription as well.

However, critics claim that the new mobile Internet access could be yet another major distraction for drivers. J. R. Peter Kissinger, President of the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety in Washington, told the New York Times, "I can picture two teenagers in the front and the passenger pulls up a YouTube video. I can't imagine the driver saying, 'I'm going to pull over and stop so I can safely watch what you're laughing at.'"
