Big Auto Goes High-Tech

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which industrials editor and analyst Isaac Pino and research analyst Lyons George discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Isaac discusses a recent development in the auto world -- adding high-tech features to car dashboards. Ford is planning to have streaming music and podcasts, GM will have video, and Tesla will have a complete touch screen interface with a 17-inch LCD. Do these devices make driving more dangerous, or are high-tech features the next inevitable move by the auto industry? Isaac and Lyons address the apparent reluctance of the Department of Transportation to spoil the party for multi-tasking commuters.

In an age of increasing access to mobile technology, investors should pay close attention to the tech companies leading the pack. We identified three stand-out technology powerhouses and analyzed their prospects as investments in our recent special report, "3 Hidden Winners of the iPhone, iPad, and Android Revolution."
