Submission + - 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?

Submission + - Facebook Kills Popular "Lite" Version (facebook.com) 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."
