    this is prob meant for a different thread completely.. but has there been any talk in trying to develop a more generic domain name? I realize mp3car is really about the history of this hobby and the first mobile installs, but it seems to me that as far as branding it would be more appropriate to own something more related to mobile computing or auto electronics. Clearly CarPCs are used for much more than music, and really this forum delves into areas other than CarPCs.

    Just a thought out of curiosity

    It was looked at previously, but MP3car has built up so much of a fllowing, including links and referrals it wasn't considered viable changing the domain name.

    However they do have some other domain names already which mirror this one.


    In order to change they would have to have the new one run in parallel and gradually phase across from one to the other, but it would take some time.

    The point of this is connecting a car and a computer... there arent really any other plugs that we use directly to connect a car to the computer other than power?? i could put a picture of a battery i guess. OBD is the one plug that most ALL newer cars have. when you see that plug you know its for a car.. all the other plugs in a car vary from manufacturer to manufacturer.

    So the idea was a OBD (car) and usb (which is known for a computer)... which is a car and a computer.. carpeuter whatever you wanna call it.

    as far as showing an actual computer in a car.. i havent thought of anything yet really.. because everyone has a different install.. and a different route of having their computer in the car.. if i put a pic of a molded bezel.. ill prbably get people saying well some people have a flip up. just trying to figure out a medium which shows the basic concept.. of a car.. and a computer.. connected.

    I got some more im working on though.. that might be more along the lines of your idea hopefully. Thanks for the input!

    Why are you looking at changing it? The current one is fine, simple, easy to read and more importantly can be resized/re-coloured etc without loosing anything.

    None of the logos (apart from the slight changes to the original logo) IMO would be an improvement, if not the complete opposite...

    Just my 2c.

    Good question - i did not give limitations as i thought this would be the best way to get new ideas.

    But yes - the logo will need to be printed in Black and white sometimes and anything over 2-3 colors is not realistic.

    I like the logo.....

    Heather:

    Are there any ohter things we have to take into concideration? I mean the logo cant be to complicated, otherwise printing, like for stationary and what not will use more supplies. Also if the logo has to be printed in black and white, it may look ugly. Right now the current MP3car logo looks good, is simple and looks good no matter how you print it.

    Okay - so it is technically feasible to change the domain name...it would just take some planning. If we did, the domain name should indicate car computing..or perhaps mobile computing if we want to be forward thinking, cutting edge innovation, etc. Or nothing at all, just be a completely new random domain name, this could work really well and never become dated or act as a misnomer - it is pretty tough explaining why we a company named mp3Car is trying to sell custom computing solutions.

    Ideas on this?
