Volvo News: Touchscreen Rear Entertainment

Volvo NewsIn this day and age, it is all about the technology that you pack into everything – honestly, if you are looking for a car, you look at what technology it has in it in addition to what the engine looks like.  If you are in the market for a computer, you look at the technology that is packed into it.  This is the technology generation and your car should be no different!

Volvo has gotten that concept and at the Chicago Auto Show they actually unveiled the brand new Rear Seat Entertainment System.  This actually features an internet connected area with Windows XP, WiFi and a 500G hard drive.

You can actually plug your computer right into your car and play all sorts of music through the car speakers – that is pretty damn cool!  It’s still under testing right now but it is almost here!

One thing that you need to make sure that you do whenever you are dealing with being stuck in the snow is ensure that your tires have enough traction.  That is the most common reason why you get stuck in the first place.

If you do happen to get stuck, you want to make sure that you turn the wheels side to side in order to get the snow out and you should be able to move your car again.
