Transfer Data to and from Your Car PC

USB flash drives, portable USB/FireWire hard drives, and WiFi are a few of the ways to get data onto and off of your car PC.

One of the things you should know before you get an in-car computer is that you are going to have to feed it. Car computers are multimediaivorous, subsisting primarily on digital audio, video, and GPS coordinates for roughage.

Seriously, though, you are going to want to get your media into the car, and probably update it from time to time. Some people prefer to perform a onetime dump of their entire MP3 collections into their cars and leave it at that. Others want to be able to listen to daily music feeds from Podcasts (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Podcasting), books on tape (http://www.audible.com), or their own email and documents converted to MP3 using computer text-to-speech synthesis (http://www.nextup.com).
