Ford, GM, Mazda Add iPod Support
Apple said Thursday that it had struck agreements with Ford, General Motors and Mazda to offer seamless iPod integration in 2007 automobile models. In Ford and General Motors cars, a majority would provide the feature, while Mazda has decided to include the feature across its entire lineup.
"Now more than 70 percent of 2007-model US automobiles will offer iPod integration, with General Motors alone making it available on all 56 of its models, representing millions of cars and trucks," Apple marketing vice president Greg Joswiak said. The Cupertino company also said it had sold more the 58 million iPods since the product's launch.
