    Talking MP3CAR.COM Just Shown On "The ScreenSavers"

    At about 7:10 on the ScreenSavers (computer show on TechTV) a caller had a question about installing an MP3 player in his car. Patrick Norton searched on Google, and came up with the MP3CAR.COM homepage. It was shown on a monitor in the background for several minutes, but the URL was not mentioned. I have just emailed Megan with the URL, so hopefully they will mention it on the show.

    Edit: I was able to tape all of the segment except for the first 10 seconds. I will post the video.

    Edit 2: Megan just got back to me and said she would add the link to the Show Notes. See http://www.thescreensavers.com

    Just saw it!

    I just saw the segment. Bummer he didn't mention mp3car.com. Although he did say to the caller that he would like to see the finished product pictures and that he would show them on the show.

    The caller was asking if an ide cable run to the front of the car for a cd-rom would work. This has been greatly debated on our site!!

    Whatever happened to the mp3car.com event that some were trying to put together. If we get it put together then we could call up the screen savers and have them come down to check it out! Just a suggestion.

    Angry

    I don't get TechTV. I is only avaible with Digital cable. Upgrading to digital would make my cable bill sky rocket even more. I would love to see the clip if somebody would post it.
