Time-lapse Audio Playback
There you are listening to a great song or discussion on the radio, you arrive at your destination, and then realize that you'll have to stop listening at the most interesting part. The horror! Don't you wish you could chain that audio entertainment up in a virtual basement for a bit and revisit it when you're ready to dig into it? Thanks to a pause and play function found on several GM cars, this Saw-like scenario is a reality, minus the blood and the unnecessarily complex machinery. The system works much like your home DVR, storing about 20 minutes' worth of audio for listening later. Pause and play audio belongs in your car like a horror movie belongs in 3D, a match made in heaven (or hell, considering the holiday.)
