    that would definitely help people to use their car insurances everytime they use this device. if youre into rock music or heavy metal... have a safe journey!

    Hmm, couldn't they configure it to play something other than "drum 'n' bass" if you drive like a pizzle? Reinforce the "drive safe, stay alive" message.

    '74 Jailbreak by AC/DC = me chilled out.
    Ace Of Spades by Motorhead = not chilled out, but still happy.
    One by Metallica = depressed.
    anything by Rod Stewart, David Bowie, etc = me very angry and shouting at the radio.

    Actually what I'd like is some kind of Tivo type arrangement for a car radio so, for example, it'd refuse to play anything by David Bowie. Definitely better than the current arrangement which involves reaching for volume or station buttons accompanied by a lot of swearing.

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    I'd like to think that perhaps it could be done to just choose a suitable style of music that you pick rather than using stems from Underworld. However it's still an interesting idea

    Another fad, like mood lighting...just more dangerous and potentially annoying.
