>> Okay, so you get a lot of visionaries these days saying tomorrow, the computer is in the car, and you think great, I'm gonna have a mid-tower case on my dashboard, or a laptop balancing on the passenger seat, not cool. A lot of companies though are working on what the form factor would be. Here's an example from Jensen, the audio vox company. They're showing off what they call the NVX3000 PC. First of all you see I've got my wireless browser up here, here's IE, checking one of my favorite websites. The interface to this is done largely via touch screen and stylus and virtual keyboard. So if I bring that up, there's my keyboard. There is no physical keyboard like you'd see on an ultra-mobile PC. So this is tending toward a navigation device in that sense. All right, now let's take a look at the interface that brings it more into the car realm. They have what they call the Jensen space. That interface is much cleaner, and it gives you the big ones. So you've got navigation, let's check that out. And there's a good large size screen, seven inches you can see, touch screen, big icons, very car, here's audio. You can store a whole bunch of media on here because it has a thirty gig hard drive, of which most is free and available for you to put your media on. Now let's move to the last mode, is this your only computer. Kind of a reach with a one gigahertz processor, but as you can see, I can undock this guy, and there's the form factor. Kind of like a portable DVD player. The other specs include a couple of USB ports, it also has a Serf [assumed spelling] three GPS radio, and you've got a wireless remote control. That certainly brings up the home entertainment idea. Plus there's an expansion dock at your desktop to hook this up to monitor, keyboard, mouse, and wired Ethernet. This is the NVX3000 PC. It's one idea for the in-car PC, and where it meets the nav device. It's from Jensen, fifteen hundred dollars is the MSRP, and it's available now.
From CES 2008, Kevin Massy takes a first look at the Jensen VM 9022 HDN, an in-dash multimedia and navigation system that's loaded with features.
John Alexander, product manager at Wind River Systems, shows off his company's speech-enabled in-dash information system. It offers GPS-based navigation help, manages the entertainment systems, and keeps track of your car's vital stats.
Today's in-dash and handheld navigation gadgets leave a lot to be desired. But not for long; take a look at the future.
At CES 2006, we take a look at Pioneer's new in-dash GPS device.
When hip-hop began its attack on mainstream culture in the mid-80's, it found itself in some pretty strange neighborhoods. It started to influence kids that the music was never intended for. Shows like Yo! MTV Raps and national tours from Run DMC brought rap music to uncharted territories never thought of during its birth in the projects. This is when the suburbs discovered rap music. And so did Hot Karl. Hot Karl, born Jensen-Gerard Karp (23), grew up in Calabasas, CA, a secluded suburb only a few miles away from the Malibu beaches. He listened to N.W.A. and Slick Rick, never relating to their subject matter or lifestyle, but loving the artform. It wasn't long before Karl began writing his own lyrics, hiding it from his affluent neighbors who still looked down at rap music and its possibilities. Karl continued to write lyrics, enter battles and freestyle at USC (where he graduated Cum Laude 2001), creating the Hot Karl persona. This is when Karl decided to call into a Los Angeles radio show to rap on the Roll Call competition, where he lasted a record 30 days on air to become the all-time champion and create a surprising buzz in LA. As managers and labels began to call, Karl created a demo exhibiting his style of witty satire and tight rhymes with help from Limp Bizkit's DJ Lethal. Karl weighed out his options from the firestorm of interest and eventually signed with Interscope Records, where he created what was to be his debut CD. "Your Housekeeper Hates You? included guest appearances by Redman, Fabolous, DJ Quik, Mya, Sugar Ray, DJ Clue and MC Serch. Once Interscope informed Karl that his CD could not be commercially released due to ?scheduling conflicts,? he asked for his immediate release, hoping to return to his underground roots and stay away from this corporate side of the music industry that he slowly began to hate. As Karl continues his attempt to "make hip-hop fun," he never focuses on the morbid world of rap and violence that continue to prove strong sales. "I'm only going to speak about things I know," Karl explains. "My keeping it real is much different than most other MC's." Karl has recently signed with EMI Publishing and found his music (as well as likeness) in the video game, NBA Live 2003, proving that leaving a major label is hardly an ending - but rather just another beginning. It's gonna be a fun ride as Karl attempts to introduce his upbringing and signature humor to the culture of hip-hop. It's time to realize the magnitude of rap music's influence, as well as time for some unlikely voices to have their chance.
