Ford FTW.

Ford is taking in-car electronics as seriously as all of their other design considerations. Long gone are the days that every model Ford sold had the same nasty black plastic radio stuck in the dash like some kind of afterthought. This week at CES Ford announced their new MyFord/MyLincoln system for in-car control and entertainment. They are building on their already amazing SYNC system that was created in conjunction with Microsoft.

Basically MyFord adds two more 4" LCD screens flanking a center mounted speedometer directly in front of the driver. Watch this's pretty cool stuff.

It looks like those years Ford spent draining technology and engineers from the European car companies they bought (and have since sold) is really paying off now.
