+ - Is the iPad an In-Car Entertainment System Killer?

theodp writes: Cars.com's David Thomas speculates that the iPad could prove to be a serious problem for automakers that charge a ransom for rear entertainment systems. The base iPad, Thomas notes, costs far less than most DVD options offered by automakers. Ford charges $1,995 for a dual-headrest-mounted DVD system in its Flex crossover. The Acura MDX is $1,900 for its single screen system, which has three wireless headsets and a 9-inch screen. At $500 a pop, giving two kids their own iPads would cost far less than what the automakers charge for an ICE system. Time for Meat Loaf to record Paradise by the iPad Light?

+ - Facebook Kills Popular "Lite" Version-> 1 1

halcyon1234 writes: "Without ceremony, warning, or any sort of given reason, Facebook has shut down Facebook Lite. Facebook lite was a trimmed down and less cluttered version of the main site. Facebook says they have "learned a lot from the test of a slimmed-down site", but has not given any indication what that knowledge will be used for."
