In-car porn viewing may result in rear-enders.

In-car porn viewing may result in rear-enders.

Ten years ago I wrote about having a Holden dotCommodore – an internet age car. Now it’s a reality because BMW is introducing the internet to its cars in the Germany in September. Like watching a DVD on an in-car AV system, you’ll need to be moving at less than 5kph – that would still allow you to browse porn while in rush hour traffic, though. Unless BMW’s introducing a system such as Volvo’s collision avoidance system, it could result in a number of rear-enders (pardon the pun).

Access will be 15 euros per month. Back seat passengers will be able to browse at any speed.

Mercedes-Benz and Audi have said they will not be developing in-car internet, but Chrysler is.

I think Merc and Audi have missed the point: parents will go to great lengths to keep their little brats entertained (basically because chloroform and a hanky is socially unacceptable for silencing kids on long journeys). So, when you go and pick little Timmy up from school, he can be doing his homework on the internet. When you drive to Aunt Maud’s, Timmy can be playing games rather than whining whether we’re there yet.

Still, chloroform and a hanky would be cheaper than 15 euros per month.
