So you're driving down the highway, and this song comes on, and it reminds you of someone special -- maybe an old girlfriend or boyfriend, or maybe your Aunt Doris -- and you think to yourself, "I should call Betty/Bob/Aunt Doris, and with my in-dash telematics system, I totally can!" Until now, you've had to speak the person's name aloud so the car's computer can pull up the number. Boring! Luckily, Audi is "upgrading" its MultiMedia Interface so you can enjoy writing out your contact's name with your finger. One letter at a time. Just like on the Apple Newton. THAT YOU HAD IN 1991.
