    Great, they ban texting and talking on the phone to bring the whole internet into the car?

    Seems like Autonet Mobile is supplying for everyone. Is there anyone else? Sounds like a monopoly to me...

    Will be very curious to see how they prevent an active driver from using this service, but let the passengers use it. The upside is huge--streaming internet radio (destroying Sirius XM), e-mail read to you, real-time mapping, etc.--but there are some serious issues.

    This is much better that a simple in-car DVD player!

    I'll be curious to see how this sort of service plays out. I have a feeling that mobile internet is about to hit its tipping point, which may spell the death (or at least reconfiguration) of subscription radio services like Sirius. However, I'm not sure who'll be providing the service in the long run -- companies like Autonet, or conventional mobile broadband carriers like AT&T to which people already subscribe for cell service.

    While I am sure GM felt they had no choice, this is yet another driver distraction. There will always be the jerk out there who thinks he/she CAN use the internet while driving. This puts so many at risk. I wonder if the tech wizards could enable the internet only when the car is in park?
