Bleeding Edge TV 383: How Ford SYNC Emergency Assistance will use GPS to break language barriers

In this episode we give you a look at the upcoming Ford SYNC Emergency Assistance feature, that is able to assist you even in areas where the native language is different than your own. It works by using GPS and cell tower locations to determine where you are in the event of an emergency. If SYNC knows you speak English, but you happen to need help in an area that speaks French, you will be contacted in English on your end, and SYNC will communicate to the responder in French, so that you can get the help you need.

Check out a video for a demo from #ForwardWithFord, which took place in Detroit, MI.

Canada’s journeyman last spotted in San Diego

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Matt StairsMatt Stairs will never retire from baseball. The 42-year old not only has yet to resort to riding out his career as an American League designated hitter, he’s also found a home in San Diego and will see time as both a first baseman and an outfielder. As a Canadian, it was hard enough for Stairs to find his way into the majors, but it seems that it’s been even harder to take him out of them.

Just where exactly is Detroit anyway?

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Editorial, MLB, NBA, NFL, NHL,

Comerica ParkDoes anybody know where Detroit, Michigan is? Clearly sport doesn’t. Detroit has a franchise in each of the four major North American Sports, the Pistons (NBA), Lions (NFL), Red Wings (NHL), and Tigers (MLB), and all of them are in a different geographically-defined league or conference, based on the sport they play in. Detroit itself is a part of the Midwestern United States, as defined by the United States Census Bureau. However, in the world of sport, Detroit is the nexus of North America.

The greatest unknown Detroit goaltender of all time

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, Editorial, NHL,

Clarence DolsonThe Detroit Red Wings have a long history of excellent goaltending. If you were asked who had the best single season goals-against average in franchise history, who would you say? Terry Sawchuk? Glenn Hall? Dominik Hasek? Chris Osgood? If you were thinking along any of those lines, you’d be very wrong. The record belongs to a goaltender that set it for Detroit was known as the Red Wings; and even before they were known as the Falcons. The record belongs to Detroit Cougar netminder Clarence “Dolly” Dolson.

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Transportation,

Saturn AuraThe government will be spending about $285 million by June 1 in Detroit by trading in their older gas guzzlers to purchase about 17,600 new vehicles from GM, Ford and Chrysler. Part of the stimulus bill, it couldn’t have come at a better time for the beleaguered industry. About 2,500 hybrid sedans like the Chevy Malibu, Saturn Aura and Ford Hybrid Fusion have been ordered. Now if we could just get our local governments to follow suit.

Internet Beats Newspapers

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Internet, Misc. Tech,

PEW ChartA report from PEW says that the Internet is second in use as a source for news. About 40% reported that they get their news there. That’s up from 24% in September 2007. The survey also stated that 70% still get their news from TV while only 35% read newspapers. (Yes, we know that is more than 100%, but some had multiple responses.) This diagram certainly reflects a change in those 18 to 29. We expect that the figure will keep going up. A couple of weeks ago both the Detroit Free Press and News were the first to end daily home delivery.
