Forget Smartphones Micosoft And Toyota Are Planning A Smar Car

It seems we are living in the world where smart people are no longer appreciated, lately everything has to be smart, from smartphones, smart kitchen appliances and now smart cars

According to AP Toyota is teaming up with Microsoft for an internet service that links cars, home computers and smartphones so users can find nearby tourist spots, connect on social networks and learn about new models.

The service will start in Japan on 30 May as a beefed up version of Toyota's internet service called Gazoo.com, and will be based on "cloud" computing from Microsoft, called Windows Azure.

According to the US software giant, it is the first time the technology is being used for a major corporate site.

Gazoo.com users tripled over the last five years to 1.65 million. Toyota Motor said on Friday it wants to raise that to 2 million over the next year.

The Japanese automaker hopes to woo younger Japanese, who are losing interest in buying cars.
