Android Auto rolls out before Google's big event

The first cars with Android Auto arrive just before Google reveals new technology this week at its I/O show. Also: That strange, iPhone-crashing text-message bug.

A year after Android Auto's debut, the first cars with the software are hitting the road. So what's next for Google? Watch CNET Update below for a look at what to expect at this year's Google I/O developer conference.

Even with all the focus on Google this week, Apple still is making headlines. This time, for a strange text-messaging bug. The notification alert cannot handle a particular string of characters, causing the iPhone to crash and restart. If someone is using the bug to prank you, turning off notifications on text messages should fix the problem -- until Apple releases a patch in its next software update.
