I don't know if this happens just now or all the time, I don't go in http://slashdot.org/recent that much. I'm just posting this cause I got frustrated. If you're frustrated as well mod this up, I want there to be a discussion of this!

The home TelePresence system that Chambers demonstrated included a set-top box, remote control, high-definition camera and microphone. The system is designed to work with existing high-definition televisions, with the camera mounted above the screen. Possible applications could include healthcare. Link to Original Source

It plans to eventually add myFord Touch, which marries voice recognition, graphic screens and touch controls on the steering wheel, to models across its product line, according to company executives. The new console will first be available in the Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX. However, starting in 2012 it will also ship globally in one of the company's most affordable models, the Ford Focus — a move to "democratize" a high-end technology that offers safety benefits, company executives said.
