Talk about smart cars: These new auto electronics, shown at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week, make for one sweet ride.

Sure, I could get satellite TV in my car before now, but with an antenna the size of a gigundus car-top box, I would have to willing to drive the lead float in the daily Mobile Video Geek Parade. No more. KVH Industries has put its TracVision A7 ($2,995) on a diet. Now a reasonably sized roof-mounted antennae brings DIRECTV, XM Satellite Radio, real-time traffic information and local channels into my ride.

I was impressed with the image quality of the TracVision and the overall design. Assuming I would spend this kind of money, I would never miss another football game again.
