Today In Tech: Pandora Coming To Cars

Pandora for the iPhone

Pandora for the iPhone

Pandora.com is a fantastic free site that allows users to create personalized radio stations chock-full of their favorite music. When Pandora jumped to the iPhone in 2008, we were stoked because it meant we could finally take streaming music on the road (even though playback is a little dodgy, thanks to AT&T's iffy coverage). Now comes word that Pandora is working with automakers to allow non-smartphone owners to use Pandora on the go -- and in a few years, Pandora may even come bundled in telemetrics systems like Sync. A little birdie suggests we look for announcements at the upcoming 2010 CES convention. To which we say: oh yeah, birdie, we will. [GigaOM]

  1. Dear Car Connection,
    This may not be the appropriate forum to send a question about electric cars, but I am hoping that whoever receives it will be nice enough to forward it along. I keep seeing articles in the paper and magazines discussing the concern of being able to charge electric vehicles in home or work garages. Apparently, without some sort of quick charge unit that needs to be installed by an electrician a charge can take anywhere from 8-16 hours. Why is there no discussion of using battery cells that can be exchanged for fully charged batteries similar to the system of exchanging an empty propane tank for a full one? It seems like the existing gas station infrastructure could easily be converted to become battery charging stations of this nature. What about this new technology rules that system out? Thanks

    Bad stuff?

  2. @Jacob: Actually, there's considerable discussion of that topic here and on our other sites. The biggest proponent of such a plan is Shai Agassi, whose company, Better Place, has plans to install exactly those sorts of service stations around the globe. In fact, he's already got a pilot project running in Tokyo, and he's about to start a massive one in Denmark. Use these two links to start reading: http://ow.ly/LdVy and http://ow.ly/LdVM.
