The Mp3Car Store is launching a blog on the mp3car.com homepage to provide more up to date information to Mp3Car supporters. To kick off the blog, each day a different member of the Mp3Car team will introduce themselves and blog a bit on what it is they do every day at Mp3Car.
Why a Blog?
So much goes on behind the screen. With a blog, the Mp3Car team can let people know what is going on, as it happens, and provide a better sense of what Mp3Car is all about all in one central location.
What can you expect to read about?
There will be 5 main tags to start:
In and Around Mp3Car– posts under this tag will let people know what is going on in and around the Mp3Car office.Mp3Car Forum News - this section will provide information on forum development, promotions, and members.Product News - any and all information related to particular products will be provided such as product launches, updates on stock, and product retirementTech Support – this section will provide posts on tech support tips and work-arounds as well as examples of how we have learned what to do or, in some cases, what not to do. There will also be suggestions regarding where to find technical information in general.Mp3Car Store Projects – this section will provide pictures and descriptions of projects and answer questions such as, what was the Mp3Car team doing last spring for a few days instead of shipping orders?
Why not just use the forums?
The forums are massive and full of important information, however, often we are answering the same question a few times in different forums, and people still feel left out. We will continue to provide information within the Mp3Car Forums, but the blog will be an easy way to get up to speed on what is new, or what is going on with a product. We will also be able to let people know more about ourselves as well as the people and companies that are helping to grow this hobby.

MP3Car and StreetDeck Developer Part Ways after Two Year Partnership to develop Mobile Platform
After over two years of partnership to develop the StreetDeck software mobile platform, MP3Car, Inc. and the creator of the software, DigitalWheelz, LLC, have decided to part ways. This strategic decision was reached after years of investment and support of the StreetDeck software by MP3Car.
Over the last year, MP3Car and DigitalWheelz have diverged in terms of vision and goals. It is expected that this decision will benefit each company’s respective customers by allowing MP3Car and DigitalWheelz to focus on providing better products and services going forward.
“While the decision to separate has been a difficult one to make,” said Robert Wray, owner of MP3Car, “we are confident at MP3Car that this is the best decision for StreetDeck customers and the future of MP3Car. It is time for MP3Car to focus on the needs of the forum users and provide better support to the forums.”
MP3Car has decided to shift away from product development and toward supporting innovators via the MP3Car Forums and the MP3Car online store. DigitalWheelz will continue to pursue StreetDeck software development initiatives.
