Ford Adds Twitter and Pandora to Sync Programs, Are You Worried About Tech Distracting Drivers?

Are You Worried About Tech Distracting Drivers?

One of the trends emerging at this year's CES is lots of new in-car tech. I wrote about one new gadget announced at this year's event, and a New York Times article details even more, but not without a note of caution. From high-tech navigation systems to audio controls (and in some cases, video), new dashboard "computers" aim to change the way we act on the road.

Automakers, of course, claim that these new features were extensively tested for safety to minimize distraction. But I can't help but think that advances like Ford's planned integration of applications like Facebook and Twitter will cause more harm than good. On the other hand, perhaps these touch-screen and computer like functions are just the wave of the future for the automotive industry. . .a sort-of evolution of the volume knob and GPS systems that most cars already have. What do you think?

i'm sorry but the world - the part you find centered around you anyway - will not come crashing down in the time it takes you to commute from your house to the store, your house to work, or your house to where ever it is you're going. you don't need to twitter or facebook or otherwise notify the world that you're driving. they are starting to go to far!

I don't think Facebook and Twitter are that important that people should be able to access them while driving. If texting while driving is a bad idea i think this one is even worse.
