Dashboard Devices Set to Debut Car Computer at CES
I never really understood wanting to put a computer in the dash of your car. The limited amount of space available forces some compromise on the system you can use. The in-day computer is available from a few places including a firm called Dashboard Devices that will unveil a new in-dash computer at CES 2009 called the ENV-XC.
The ENV-XC runs an Intel Core Duo 1.66GHz processor and offers 1GB of RAM and a 160GB HDD. The unit has dual FM RDS/TMC tuners and an option for built-in GSM/GPRS modems and more. The XC is designed to be coupled with in-dash displays like the ENV-100.
The display in the dash is a 7-inch touchscreen with a DVD/CD-RW built-in and a front USB port. The ENV-XC measures 1.77" x 4.25" x 6.61". GPS is integrated into the system as well. The machine is equipped with a hard drive heater for cold environments.

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.
