    Interesting CarPuter

    http://www.mini-itx.com/news/cebit2003-2/ has posted several new pics of differant VIA "stuff".

    One of them resembles a Double DIN Radio for you Japanese car owners.

    Very interesting indeed...

    yeah, but expect the Windows CE os in there to crash every so often
    I don't need no stinkin' startup-shutdown controller... That's what journalized filesystems are for...

    Thank god our cars vitals don't run on windows.

    Was thinking that, but I'm sure that it would crash less often than regular Windows.

    I would guess it wouldn't be too much a problem since it doesn't look customizable. (Is that even a word?)

    Guess this is one of those times when I'm happy my car has that bigass double din gap in the dash

    The doubledin one in the original picture links looks pretty interesting.

    Yeah, and the beauty is that it's meant to go in the dash unlike all other products seen...

    Unfortunately 10" is too long to fit most din slots.
