Intel Invades Nissan

Intel is notorious for marking its territory on a wide array of consumer gear, but one piece of kit that's unlikely to sport that famous sticker is the infotainment system of Nissan's 2013 Infiniti lineup. Unveiled today at the New York International Auto Show, the in-vehicle computer represents a collaboration between Intel and Nissan and was showcased within the Infiniti LE concept vehicle. On the inside lurks an Atom CPU, which bucks the general trend toward ARM architecture in these systems. Both companies put their collective heads together to create cloud-based services for smartphone users such as video surveillance, vehicle control and monitoring. As another nice refinement, users will also be able to use their phone's NFC capabilities for keyless entry to the carriage -- no word on whether it can similarly activate the ignition. You'll find the full PR after the break.

I was like 'LOL' when I read this, it's just like how we imagine last time!
The car with computers and it works like it.
In past, automotive industry had been innovating and being more and more creative over time.
However, being a restriction to traditional engineering mentality, cars just serve to move.
But when time goes on, rich people wants to be differentiate from others.
Here comes the luxury type cars like Ferrari BMW Lexus and so so.
Some just don't serve to run, but to ride.. how shame
At that instance, I believe it is time's problem when cars can operate more intelligent(ly).
That's where Intel comes in hand now...
