postheadericon Transportation secretary Ray LaHood: no restrictions (yet) on in-car information

Worried that the fancy-schmancy SYNC system you just ordered up in your Mustang will soon be outlawed? Fret not, speed demon. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood will reportedly not push for restrictions on handsfree phones or in-car technology until “the government conducts further research.” There are generally two prevailing trains of thought: one feels that any type of calling — be it handsfree or otherwise — is a terrible distraction to the driver, while the other feels that properly integrated technology is safe enough for use on the road.

Your OnStar system can read Engadget, right?

Plus it has a cable that looks so much like an al dente piece of linguini we couldn’t resist trying it. How does it taste in a white clam sauce and, more importantly, how does it act as a headset? Read on to find out.
