Google’s Earth in Your Audi

Question: What’s missing from your next new car?
Answer: The EARTH.

That’s right folks. What could be better than looking at the actual earth while driving on it? Looking at pictures from outer space, of the earth you are driving on, while driving on it. The technology of the future makes this possible, thanks to Audi and Google. The 2011 Audi A8 will be the first production vehicle to feature the Google Earth software built right in to its navigation system. Audi has also given the A8 the ability to connect to cellular date networks via a built in modem or a bluetooth connection to a cell phone.

Now I know what you are thinking, “I can watch myself, as seen from outer space, while I’m driving on the Earth, from inside my car right?” No, silly, that would create a black hole. You should know better. It’s like making a double-ended extension cord and plugging it into two outlets – you could, but why? And while you’re watching the world turn from the comfortable cabin of your Audi A8 and listening to Space Oddity by David Bowie, please keep your eyes on the road so you don’t impale yourself like this guy did. Back-to-back Audi posts! Ich bin überlegen!
