Microsoft LiveSearch... from your Car!

added by Michael on 30 Jul 2008

Over on the TechRadar, we learn that Microsoft is developing a new voice-activated service called LS4D, Microsoft Live Search for Devices.

LS4D will allow third parties to develop search applications that use the web, allowing such things as voice activated search of the telephone directory or, more interestingly, bring in location-aware points of interest (POI) to that you never be driving around looking for the nearest McDonald's drive thru again.

"Imagine how useful having a search engine in your car would be?" MSN Cars' Ian Dickson told TechRadar.

"You're visiting a different area, for instance. In an instant you would be able to find out the best places to visit, eat, stay as well as learn a bit of history about the area."
