Microsoft and Mercedes bring your office calendar to your car

Microsoft Office logoYou can't always escape work when you're in your car, but Microsoft and Mercedes-Benz think they can at least make those corporate invasions more tolerable. They're working together on an In Car Office project that, to start with, will integrate your Microsoft Exchange info with your car's infotainment system. It'll auto-populate your car's navigation unit with driving directions for that upcoming meeting, for example, or offer to make a hands-free call to get in touch with your client when you're on your way.

Microsoft and Mercedes bring your office calendar to your car

The two haven't spilled the beans on the full extent of what they might do. Thankfully, you won't have to wait too long to try this out -- In Car Office will reach Mercedes cars sometime in the first half of 2017. You don't absolutely need this if you're diligent about memorizing your meeting details, but it hints at a future where your car regularly anticipates what you need, rather than waiting for you to fill in the blanks yourself.
