Toronto Mike Syncs His Ride @ Ford

carI mentioned Ford was going to give me a Ford Focus with Sync technology to test drive. This morning I made the trip to Oakville to pick up my new wheels.

I got a great tutorial on this Sync technology. I've got my Blackberry and iPod synced up and it's amazing. I press a button on the steering wheel and say "Play Artist Neil Young" and it starts playing songs by that artist. I say "Phone Call Stephen Harper" and I have our PM on the line. It's totally hands free and totally cool.

I've got the car for ten days so I'm going on a road trip. If entries are sporadic next week, that's the reason why. I'll report back here on how it all went after next weekend.

Is there a -- set of button on the steering wheel as well?

If so you might want pull over to the side of the road before you do.

Have fun driving

I think the "- -" part should have read CTRL ALT and DEL

OR the rest of the joke is lost

I used "" as part of the last text and MT seamed to have removed it.

Is there a CTRL-ALT-DEL set of button on the steering wheel as well?

The magic word when you're messing up is "cancel". That's the first command I learnt.

The Benz has a system like this too.
