Brew News: So Long, Saturn

1

Posted by admin | Posted in Brew News, General Motors, Saturn | Posted on 30-09-2009


General Motors has run outta gas on its Saturn line. Penske Automotive Group had agreed to buy the Saturn unit, but Penske announced today that it’s a wrap on that plan. As part of the original deal, GM would keep making the top-selling Saturn models for a year and a half. Penske would then sell the cars on GM’s behalf. The deal would have kept 13,000 people working.

But… Penske yanked the deal, citing concerns about supplies after GM stopped making the cars. So, GM will end the brand and its 350 dealerships across the country.

Another one bites the dust!

Tech Talk: Text With Your Voice

Posted by Piper from the Brew | Posted in tech talk, text messages, text talk, texting while stupid | Posted on 30-09-2009


States are cracking down on cell phone use while driving. In Maryland, texting while driving becomes illegal tomorrow. If your lifestyle is too fast-paced to simply focus on driving while you drive, then check out Vlingo.

Vlingo is a voice-activated service that allows mobile users to press a button and simply talk their text messages, Google searches and even Facebook status updates. It works really well and, over time, the system even learns your voice. Vlingo works on Windows Mobile phones, iPhones, Blackberries and Nokia phones. Basic use is free but if you want to upgrade to sending texts and e-mail, you will have to pay for the app. It beats getting bailed out or getting a ticket though!

If paying for an app isn’t your thing, then check out DriveSafe.ly. It’s a free app that reads your emails and texts in real time.

Or you could just put your hands on the wheel and actually drive!
