    I've been emailing techtv lately to try and get some noise made. They did a feature on their show, "fresh gear" about some guy that had a laptop in his car - Whooo Hoooo! Talk about hardwork and originality

    Well. I forgot to add ( but I did in the techtv emails ) that in my area I never had zdtv. We just recently got techtv. I wish I had caught that episode. Thanks for informing me. I guess I can stop bugging them

    i find it kind of funny that mp3car.com is one of the largest mp3 car sites on the internet and i havent seen many people mention it in their articles and interviews.

    Anyone actually read the Cnet article and find it outstandinly funny that the suggest BUYING plans from carplayer.com for $20 bucks. If you need to pay 20 bucks for info on how to build one...you probably dont know jack about computers (which is extremely hard to come by nowadays) and shouldnt be building it in the first place.
    I'm a ghost...email me if you have any questions on my old setup

    My way outdated website: http://www.poboytech.net

    FYI: I sold my 96 4Runner and bought a 1985

    This is so true. All you ever hear about is the bigger guys like q-pc and gnet. All offering in-car computing solutions. What really rags me is how they try and come off as pioneers.

    I agree with all above guys. It really ****s me when u read articles in the press/internet/media written by the news services 'resident expert' on the issue and they get it all so wrong....

    some parts of that C-Net article made me crinch at how wrong it all was...

    I really love this bit....

    So you want to build an MP3 player for your car with nothing but components from RadioShack and your own talents? You'll just need a few simple skills:

    *Computer hardware expertise (to build the player)

    *Software programming (to write the software that runs the player)

    *Electrical engineering (to build a power source that doesn't fry your player)

    *Mechanical inclination (to install the player in your car)
    a few simple skills? This is comming from a guy that is sooo outa touch with the article anyways!!!

    the $20 'buy the plans' bit was the really anoying part tho - this sort of information SHOULD be free, as is the idea here at mp3car.com....
    Project - GAME OVER :(

    There are so many articles out there that just make me laugh. We have all been seriously unminded and overlooked. Unless you have a system a large manufacture has engineered, you're *****.

    Some examples:

    http://www.sounddomain.com/sku/QPCQ440

    Digitally delivered entertainment will also make its automotive debut, starting with music, Brass says. Imagine an MP3 player for the car stereo system that plays music files that have been wirelessly downloaded.

    They've pioneered my *** as far as I'm concerned.

    Check out this dude:

    I'm sure he did all the work himself

    I remember when the guys from g-net used to post on here trying to sell stuff. I'm sure they didn't get any ideas off here.

    Yeah, I may be blowing off some steam but that is some crap. I'm seriously about to join the band wagon here and try and get some sponsorship. I (as we all do on here) have some really cool ideas I'd like to try, but unfortunatley I'm not Bill Gates.
