I also wanted to follow up something I saw at IFA in this editorial. If you listen to TheDigitalLifestyle show you will know I was very impressed with the in car voice recognition Nuance demoed at IFA. The recently launched Mercedes A Class appears to use this system and it is trully excellent. One of the few in car systems that can give Alexa or Google's Voice systems a run for their money. Its really good to see old school car manufacturers realising they need to do something about their In Car Systems. We'll have bit more on car systems in our next issue when we look more closely at Tesla's new software version and the Jaguar I-Pace
Our cover story this issue takes me back a few years to a very misspent youth. if you are a child of the early 80s then you will love these Mini Arcade Games.
