Usually when I've driving while eating kentucky fried chicken in one hand and iPhone texting in the other, I think to myself "I sure wish the in-dash movie I'm watching was in HD".

Sooooo, I am going to have streaming Netflix, via WiFi, in my car? Well, this is just peachy if I am sitting in the McDonald's parking lot! If they dont add 3G/4G service, I don't see this being of any use to anyone.

Well, I take that back. I guess you could add it to your Truck, and watch Netflix while sitting at your local truck stop. Or at Texas Rest Stops (they all claim to have WiFi, but the signal was so weak that I wasn't able to connect at any of the several I stopped at over my Christmas breaks).

But the Blu-Ray is cool.

Now if only Kenwood would follow suit. I already have a Kenwood in Dash DVD player, would love to be able to replace it with a Blu-Ray player so I don't have to rip my Blu-Rays to DVD in order to watch them on the road.

For those of you wondering about WiFi, a lot of newer cell phones can act as a WiFi hotspot. So you could hook this up to your cell phone and use your 3G/4G data to stream from the internet.

Make sure you have unlimited data, and can substain a good transfer rate. My android phone shows my provider's transfer rates vary from 8kbps (standard) up to around 96kbps (I will ocassionally get bursts that fast). Soooo.... Quality similar to Real Player on dialup or ISDN.

It's so weird to me that in this age of everyone in the world having an ipod that the vast vast majority of in-car electronics are still disc-based. I've had an in-dash hard drive-based music library system since 2002, and it's really odd every time I look at how far behind the times the car entertainment market is. The wifi option is great though, it would be one more reason to justify getting a mobile 4g hotspot.
