If you listen to a lot of audio content when you drive such as music, podcasts, or audio books, a new in-vehicle smart USB devices is now shipping. The device is called Automatica and it is designed to plug into the USB port in some late-model automobiles. The device is also available with a carpower kit since most USB ports and vehicles don't offer power.
Inside the Automaticastick is Wi-Fi hardware allowing the device to automatically connect to local Wi-Fi networks while parked in the garage. The device will synchronize itself with various cloud storage services including Dropbox and others. That means all you have to do is park in your driveway to get all of your latest audio content into your vehicle.
The device also has a web management interface allowing you to add and remove content manually. Automatica is available right now for $99. “So many car audio solutions require car modifications, include subscription costs, or drain your phone’s battery and data,” states Giorgio Bernardi, President of INRETE. “Automatica offers a simple plug and play solution that, once it is set up, never has to be updated because it automatically grabs your new content and makes it available in your vehicle.”

Apple's first wearable will not ship until 2015
If true, Apple, as it has always been, must be very confident about its timing. After all, it will be the company's new product from an entirely different category, and people will most likely be patient about it.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
