What I want in a car

I'm sitting in the car waiting for my wife to do some crimbo shopping. I'd normally be bored but with.my g1 it's not a problem. I've got podcasts on my listen app and loads of news in newsrob. I've also got full web browsing.

Ah, that's where the problem start. News rob,for som inexplicable reason wants to download each article when you click the title. Yes, I have enabled offline content etc and there's plenty of space on my phone.

I'm up the city centre so I should have a 3g signal. Probably do but the g1 isn't recognising it, I'm also on 3 which is just about the worst coverage I've ever known. With vodafone I used to get a signal up a hill in the middle of nowhere. With 3 I can't get one in my own home in the middle of a city. Whatever.

Anyway what's this got to do with my car? Basically it's that I wish they'd make more use of the hunk of metal that it is. Surely it's great at attracting radio signals and could enhance the mobile signal for me somehow. Point being that when inside my car what if the signal could be enhanced by the body of the car. Maybe this isn't possible with physics but I feel it's worth putting out there in casse some one could figure it out.

That would truly make my car so much more useful to me and in turn make my life more fun. If a car or accessory made this possible i'd want it.
