    I got my interview!!

    Took about 10-15 minutes.
    She said that she will let us know when the article is in the paper and she will post a link. It will be on their web site.

    Not a bad article, though it hardly scratches the surface. I don't suppose this article was meant to explore the mp3car world, merely to bring attention to it.

    mp3car system is currently FUBAR and finances do not allow for a correction of that situation

    In my interview I tried to explain there was so much more then simply playing mp3s anymore. Things like GPS, OBD-II, etc. The scope of the article was narrow, only focusing on mp3 playing.

    Yes, The story was only about the MP3 angle. When you write a newspaper article, you have limited space and usually have to focus on just one or two angles.

    We may revisit all the other things you can do with a computer in your car at a later date.

    Any story ideas about this would be appreciated.

    GPS for staters, there is a site in Sweden which has a gps program for 1/4 mile times and circuits, oakgps it's called

    Internet access within the car

    wardriving is hot topic at the moment

    OBD is a pretty good idea, a lot of ECU's are interfacing to computers, best around TFATF 2 maybe.
