Now will they? I have my doubts. Here in Belgium, we have one of the most dense road maps of the world. Traffics jams, road constructions, pits in the road etc. It's even hard for a human being like me to go from A to B. So how would a piece of machinery do better?

In light of the self driving car discussion I thought I'd start revving folk up about the electric cars we have today. For me it was almost by accident I moved into my current EV which is a 2014 Nissan Leaf SV. I have a nice enough van but I wanted something for short trips about town. So I had a thought to "Google it." I googled "Worst resale value cars." At number 2 was the Leaf. I know this car but not very well and decided to take a deeper look. The reasons for its poor resale value are …

The average car is increasingly becoming a vehicle for the Internet; but does this also make it a vehicle for cybercrime? Security vendor Kaspersky Lab, in cahoots with Spanish digital media outfit IAB, reckons that software updates, in-car mobile apps and privacy are all areas which have ripe potential for the car crook to launch an attack. Announcing the first 'Annual Connected Cars Study' which aims to provide an overview of the Internet car market, Kaspersky Lab and IAB hope that some unity can be provided to the pretty fragmented software ecosystem offered by car manufacturers currently.

CoPilot Live 8 Mobile Navigation on the iPhone has been a runaway success at the App Store, consistently keeping ahead of its TomTom rival in the 'top grossing' app charts at least in the UK Store. It arrived first and costs half as much as the TomTom app, but is it better? If you had asked me that question a month ago then the answer would have been a resounding no. Extensive testing showed up huge problems in keeping a GPS lock and the app even refused to start half the time I wanted it to. But then, just as …

According to one online retailer which has broken ranks and [URL="http://www.handtec.co.uk/product.php/2126/tomtom-for-iphone-inc-mount"]gone public[/URL] with pre-order pricing, if you want an iPhone-powered TomTom satnav in your car it will cost you a cool ¬£113.85 ($193.75) which works …
