Default Update Facebook status while driving with OnStar

Discuss

Quote:
As we hinted last week, OnStar's new Facebook application will enable drivers to verbally dictate a message to update their status on the social networking site. It's easy and seems to be fairly safe to do. Video below.

And by safe we mean as safe as you can be yelling commands at a car while you're weaving through traffic, but whatever.

Although the embargo's set to go up at midnight, thanks to Newsmarket dropping the sheet a bit early, here's the scoop — OnStar will provide an easy and safe way for people to update their Facebook pages verbally. Here's what they have to say:

With over 500 million members, social media networks like Facebook have become a part of daily life. To meet society's growing desire to be connected at all times, "OnStar is: unveiling a new social media interactive program for the car." The OnStar Facebook application will enable drivers to verbally dictate a message to update their status. With only a push of a button, the service will also allow subscribers to listen to their most recent news feeds. Other new technologies will include voice-based texting, which allows customers to send and receive texts using Bluetooth. In addition to the introduction of innovative car apps, the company is improving on its tried and true services like Automatic Crash Response. The latest version is being enhanced with a new service called First Assist which provides important life-saving instructions to occupants until first responders arrive.

Onstar was and is a waste of money in my eyes. I had it I paid $300 a year for two years. Then said you know what I have never used it why am I paying for it?

I would buy minutes for the phone at $1 a dam minute. Then my wife would call me and want to talk for an hour and a half while I was driving home form my night classes. So after $500 of minutes in 3 months I told her to effing stop that stupid crap unless your paying for them. She would call that phone because while driving I don't answer my cell. I have a hard enough time dodging all the effing idiot pruis drivers and effing douchetastic soccer moms in their Excursions with their phones coffee and effing rat dogs.

This is stupid really you can't wait to get home or to work to update your effing worthless facebook account? Really No one effing cares that your posting "OMG I so like scored a super like good deal on like a starbucks coffee like no way LOL LU TTYL .... " This makes me want to go and rip my effing mirror off the window and find the closest idiot and shove it right up their areshole. Good effing lord. Really, if we put all the work in to breast cancer research it would be gone from the planet.

You know next up is a twitter app for onstar so you can tweet that your driving while drive OMG LIKE SO LIKE COOL LIKE I LOVE IT MAN.....

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAA

People already update from their car. It is called a cell phone.

Yeah, if people can just talk to update facebook imagine the flood of boring messages on the home page. It is already very annoying. -_-
