Apple has announced that it has teamed up with Ford, General Motors, and Mazda to bring 'seamless' iPod integration into the majority of their cars, reports Leftlane News. Apple says that more than 70 percent of 2007-model year automobiles sold in the US will offer iPod integration to buyers.

Implications - People have become so attached to their MP3 players that cars are now being produced with integrated systems that will play the device through the car's speakers. Businesses that can establish a connection with current technology and implement it into their own products are going to see a huge rise in consumer interest. The car companies that have realized this are definitely going to be of interest to many people.
