Fancy BMWs Are About to Get a Whole Lot Yelpier

I often find myself cruising around in my twin-turbocharged and direct-injected V12-powered BMW 760Li Sedan (MSRP $137,300) and ask myself, "I wonder where Yelpers like to eat around here?" And it's a Christmas miracle! Yesterday BMW announced that "users of BMW Online in the US can now access Yelp in their vehicles." Which means viewing ratings "while hearing reviews read out to them via the vehicle’s text-to-speech feature."

The Yelpblog boasts: "No matter where you are, you will no longer have to settle for the second best café or a mediocre rest stop." And now, no matter where you are — if you happen to have an on-board Navigation system on specific BMW models — reviews by militant vegetarians, degenerate, frenzied Elites, and vengeful imbeciles are a touch away. Hit the slideshow above to see examples of the user interface.
