a mini that tweets

If you've dreamed about tweeting, checking in and searching from your car's dashboard, you're totally going to dig the new MINI. It's all built in.

It's cool to see that manufacturers are shortening the r&d timelines to accommodate new technology, and internet tools that are important to the mix.

Will the future of auto-internet be in the dashboard? Or your phone? Or both? Whatever the answer, you know you want to be tweeting from a brand new MINI next year.

Anon: as a runner who's been nearly hit on multiple occasions by texting drivers, I agree with your concern.

We can assume that MINI produces this product with a warning that it's not to be used while driving - but the video is edited to be intentionally vague...he could be driving, or could be parked.

The internet is coming to the automobile like it or not - and it will be interesting to see how it's safely integrated into our dashboards - and/or if new product developments can impact the manner in which we use them.

We'll see. But I do agree that something's got to change to keep drivers focused on the task of driving, first.
