CES is all about convergence, and one of the more interesting examples 
is Internet radio station aggregator miRoamer and car stereo maker 
Blaupunkt. The result of this union is two stereo head units from 
Blaupunkt that receive and play Internet radio, giving you over 16,000 
choices for streamed music while you drive. The first hurdle with a 
system like this is getting the Internet stream to the car. The 
Blaupunkt miRoamer system uses the data connection for a paired 
Bluetooth phone, connecting to the miRoamer server. Obviously you will 
need a phone with a data plan, preferably unlimited.

Blauplunkt will release two stereo head units, the single DIN Hamburg 
and the double DIN New Jersey, with miRoamer integrated later this year. 
Because so many radio stations are available, the interface in the head 
unit isn't designed for users to search through stations. Instead, you 
create a profile on the miRoamer Web site with your favorite radio 
stations. When you get in the car, the head unit logs into miRoamer and 
shows your radio stations as presets.
