bluetooth integration in your car?

by dornbosj / July 24, 2008 4:52 AM PDT

The company I'm working for is looking at developing a bluetooth hands-free phone system that allows a user to drive down the road while talking on your cell phone and not having to hold the phone to your ear.

The company I work for is very good at coming up with good clean integration into vehicles that although they are aftermarket, look like they are from the factory.

What types of features would you look for in such a product?

-display?
-phone book synchronizing?
-caller ID?

What's your overall impression of the concept?

Any help or constructive comments will be appreciated.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
