Ipod - New audio navigation

If you think speaking over the phone while you are driving your 4-wheeler or 2-wheeler is good enough recipe for disaster wanting to happen....you haven't tried changing a song on your ipod...with one hand on steering wheel, the other on ipod scrolling wheel, one eye on the road and the other on the ipod screen, you believe you are good at doing this balancing act, but not long when..POW..CRASH..CRUNCH..you have rammed into someone.

So to mitigate this to certain extent, Apple has a new patent for a process of voice tagging each song, genre, artist etc on your ipod. So the next time you are hunting for your favorite song while driving, as you scroll through the menus,ipod will announce the options on the menu you are currently on, so that you will always have both the eyes on the road.

Simple and ingenious isn't it?
