This is pretty cool news for Apple and Honda fans.

The latter’s 2013 vehicles will provide support for Siri Eyes Free.

Engadget reports that it will be a dealer-installed feature for the Accord, and the Acura RDX and ILX.

According to the carmaker this will enhance hands-free functionality while reducing driver distraction. Let’s hope Siri’s listening ability continues to improve.

It’s one thing for Siri to misunderstand you when you’re sitting at your desk or couch and quite another when you’re behind the wheel of a moving car.

Now if you wanted to start your car with Siri, that’s another matter. (For that, you’d probably want to look up this Viper SmartStart thing …)

The new iPad mini has some people scratching their heads.

Why go smaller?

On the other hand, many consumers have been waiting a while for this device. Engadget offers a detailed review with a section comparing it to the competition, including other iPads.

All that is well and good but what we really like and wanted to see is the mini in a car!

Thanks to Soundwaves of Tampa, we can see how perfect it is for the dash. See the video of the slick install here.

And of course Soundman in California has an example in a VW CC, check that out here.

The best example for us of an iPad install (the original version) is still by Dave “Fishman” Rivera, click here to check out that old classic if you still haven’t seen that one yet.
