Ford Sync's In-Car Wi-Fi Brings Internet to the Interstate

While other U.S. car manufacturers have been mired down in bankruptcy and the near-total collapse of the automotive industry, Ford continues its devotion to an impressive modernization movement. The company's trend toward technological advancement began in earnest with the voice-controlled Microsoft Sync program, which is set to begin its second phase next year.

According to Engadget, the next incarnation of Sync vehicles will feature built-in Wi-Fi and 3G-sharing capabilities. Those additions, as well as other Sync upgrades, will reportedly be revealed at next month's CES technological trade show. With the next-gen Sync program, adaptive cruise control, collision warnings, inflatable seat belts, and butt massagers, Ford's savvy offices-on-wheels are suddenly making the manufacturer globally desirable and relevant for the first time in decades. Hopefully, GM and Chrysler are paying close attention. [From: Engadget]
