There’s no better way to enjoy your time in the car than with your favorite music, news, entertainment or good conversation. On those rare occasions when you don’t have another person to occupy you, you probably turn to your phone and the podcast / music / news app of choice synced up via Bluetooth. But even the most advanced car dash setup is going to have lag / control issues / hiccups, and that’s where Spotify’s new Car Thing comes in. This smart player from Spotify easily mounts to your dash or vents and controls your listening experience through a combination of voice commands, taps, turns and swipes so you can let your phone do all the heavy lifting (or charge) while Car Thing takes care of all your entertainment needs. The estimated cost of the Spotify Car Thing is around $80, but you can get it at a hefty discount (of $80) and just pay the $7 shipping & handling charge if you get on the list and you’re lucky enough to be selected.
