Ford is installing a feature in all it's  2012 vehicles that will read your text messages out loud.This is a fantastic idea to allow people hands free driving and stop  distracted drivers behind the wheel. The only downside I could see with this is, depending on who is in the vehicle with you, you may not want them to hear your text messages out loud. :) Of course the driver can control this via blue tooth which syncs with the drivers phone. Right now BlackBerrys are the most compatible and  some  Android phones.
