I’m Buying A New Car!

I decided to buy a new car.

Check it out. A 2008 Infiniti G37 Coupe.

Pretty. Freaking. Sweet.

I’m not a pretentious car guy, so I’m not going to talk about specs and that stuff. What I am going to talk about is how awesome the car is from a tech nerd standpoint. I test drove the car last week, and I determined that it was pretty much the coolest driving experience I have ever had. Here is how it went down:

I got into the test car and hooked my iphone up to the car. It automatically recognized my phone as an ipod/music device and allowed me to select songs and control volume from my steering wheel!!! I was already in love.

Next, I programmed the phone to recognize the car as a “blue tooth” receiver. After it was hooked up, I had my friend Kris call me from outside of the car. The music immediately faded out and my phone/the car’s computer told me that I was receiving a call. I was able to choose “answer call” on both my phone and on my steering wheel. I answered and started talking to Kris hands free, using the microphone within my car. His voice was clear as day and projected throughout the speaker system in the car. He said he could hear me very clearly as well.

I hung up with him and the music automatically faded back in… and it played proudly in the car.

It’s the little things like this that really make me excited about new cars. I know that buying a new car isn’t always the wisest financial decision, but that doesn’t really matter to me all the time. Seriously, I worked my ass off for the past 6+ months, didn’t take a vacation, and I deserve a treat. This car (and my trip to Europe) are my chance to indulge in my hard work. Wise investment or not, I don’t really care. This car is freakin’ sweet.
