Once transmitters and towers are a thing of the past (in other words, once they aren't needed as a means of delivering content) the AM/FM bands will also be a thing of the past. Let's be careful not to buy into research that makes us all feel better about our selves.

Chuck,

I'm not sure if you've been in a car that's been mfg. in the last 10 years but the dashboard is already very interactive. Cars like BMW's, which use something BMW calls iDrive, rely on lots of user input while driving. I don't think any mfg. is calling for texting while driving, quite the opposite, but in terms of engaging with entertainment while driving we are already there.

I fear the new dashboard will become as dangerous as texting and driving.

Radio in your car is a passive medium, not an interactive one. Put it on your favorite station and just listen. The more vehicle entertainment becomes interactive, the more dangerous driving becomes. There is a reason they don't put TV's where the driver can see them.
