Tesla adds Netflix, YouTube to infotainment

Tesla owners will soon be able to stream Netflix and YouTube on their infotainment systems, but video streaming won't be available on the move... for now. As is his wont, Elon Musk announced the news on Twitter, telling his followers the "ability to stream YouTube & Netflix when car is stopped coming to your Tesla soon! Has an amazingly immersive, cinematic feel due to the comfy seats & surround sound audio".

Blaupunkt drags '80s stereo into 2019

Blaupunkt has brought one of its most sought-after stereos back to life, revealing the SQR 46 Bremen overnight. Normally a 1980s stereo wouldn't be huge news, but collectors and restorers are constantly searching for ways to pack modern technology into a housing respectful of classic cabins. The SQR 46 Bremen re-issue will fit into a range of BMW, Saab, Porsche and Mercedes-Benz models from the 1980s and 90s.

But no matter how advanced the car, it needs the help of its surroundings to know what's around the corner.
