OnStar, the in-car services network, today announced a new service which allows you to update your Facebook status by dictating to the OnStar. And not only that, you can listen to the most recent updates from your news feeds via OnStar. This is a way for the company to expand and add more features in addition to its Automatic Crash Response and navigation services.
The company is working on integrating web-based services like Google Maps into its core offering. I think it is cool to see a staid old company like GM trying to add social networking to OnStar.
