I really like the hands free tech that Ford is putting into its cars and trucks today. The tech is really cool because it allows you to use different functions of the car with your voice rather than having to fiddle with controls. Ford also has its AppLink that allows certain apps on your smartphones to be controlled using the Sync system in the car.

The latest app to get support is the Slacker Radio app. The latest version of the app on Blackberry, Android, and iOS devices are now all AppLink capable so you can control your music with your voice. Blackberry users need version 4.1.22 or higher, Android users need 3.2.86 or higher, and the iOS app is pending approval but will be version 3.6 or higher.

Once installed you can navigate all the Slacker music and content offerings on the app running on your smartphone suing your voice. The idea is that you can get more entertainment options without having to take your eyes off the road and fiddle with your smartphone.

"Customers now have so many options for accessing music and information. Ford SYNC AppLink allows us to not only keep pace with what they are listening to, but how they are listening to it," said Doug VanDagens, director of Ford Connected Services. "With its huge music library, Slacker Radio dramatically increases the content options for Ford drivers."

About the Geek Mind

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.
