Google Me forthcoming
Google CEO, Eric Schmidt has stated that Google Me will arrive this fall, but it won't necessarily be a separate feature—it will happen through a “social layer” added atop Google's search, video and map functions.
Eric cited a desire to have Facebook users integrate their contacts with Google in order to further their reach. No other details were released.
GM's OnStar gets social, too
General Motors is revamping its OnStar computer system with better voice recognition and social media integration.
In a few months, the system will be able to read cellphone text messages to drivers., who can use a button on their steering wheel to send one of up to four preset replies.
Drivers will also be able to listen to messages from the social media site Facebook, as well as update their Facebook status using voice recognition.
