Driving Miss Dazey

Easily distracted by new technology? Addicted to social media? (If so, click here.) New cars are about to get far more exciting and possibly more dangerous to drive.

FordEva[Ford engineers] … are on the cusp of a system featuring the futuristic avatar Eva, the vaguely creepy face and voice of a woman on your dashboard who can read you your e-mail, update your schedule, recite articles from newspapers, guide you to the restaurant where you’re having lunch and recommend a selection from your iPod. Ford’s working on a Web browser, which would be locked while driving.  Maureen Dowd, NYT

Appears that the cars themselves are going to have to do the driving (robot cars), so that we former drivers can be entertained (graphic is not of Ford’s Eva).
