Amazon Dash was recently made available to purchase for all Amazon Prime members. Since it was announced on March 31st, earlier this year, many people assumed it was an April Fool’s joke. It has become recently apparent that it is not. You can now choose from 255 Dash Buttons for different household items from Gatorade to diapers or an Amazon Dash which works through voice control or scanning the bar code on the item.

Amazon Dash connects to your home WiFi and your Amazon account and automatically puts the item in your shopping cart. You then view the purchase on your computer or mobile device and schedule delivery. Dash Buttons are available for $5.

World’s first Apple iPad in-car installation

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on April 6th, 2010

Doug Bernards of SoundMan Car Audio in Santa Clarita, California is the first to install an iPad in a car. The car of choice? A Toyota Tacoma pickup. You can check out a video below.

They still need to wire it up to the Audison Bit One sound processor and McIntosh MMC406M 6-channel amp, but they’ve fitted and molded the dash to the iPad. Sure it looks a tad awkward with it’s size and that bezel, but all of your media will be along for the ride right?

Sony Dash now available for pre-order, ships April 15th

Posted in Sony by Conner Flynn on March 2nd, 2010

The Sony Dash “personal internet viewer” is finally available for pre-order directly from Sony. It will cost you $199 and it’s good that you get one now while you still have money, because Sony will be shipping them out “on or about” April 15th at which time you will be short on cash.

We were not very excited about this one until we learned that it could stream shows and movies from netflix. Now we like it a whole lot more. All things considered, it should be worth the asking price.

Ford’s new HUD dash looks pretty sweet

Ford’s new HUD dash looks pretty sweetSure, we’ve heard it all when it comes to Ford jokes. Found On Road Dead, Fix Or Repair Daily, etc. Say what you like about Ford, you can’t deny the coolness of their SmartGauge LCD panels in their new 2010 hybrids.

Instead of the usual boring analog dials, Ford gives you a LCD screen cluster and even some animations. Notice the fuel gauge. Nice to look at, easy to find and functional. The best part about using an LCD display is that it’s fairly customizable. You can display battery charge, GPS and Satellite radio coverage, maybe even current mp3 track information. Of course there’s the usual boring MPH and RPM indicators. They just don’t look boring.
