Parrot has announced a new hands-free device which lets drivers manage emails, texts and calls via voice control.
The MiniKit Neo will be available in September for £79.99.

Life president of Eidos Ian Livingstone has said the rape controversy around the latest Tomb Raider has been "blown out of proportion".
In an interview with Edge he said the argument was based on "a live interview that went slightly wrong – quotes were misinterpreted and blown out of proportion" he said.
“There was a momentary threat to Lara which she overcame in two seconds. The reaction has been quite extreme.”
The legal dispute involved The Oatmeal.com, another website and a lawyer are too detailed and fraught for us to go into here.
But the good news is that a charity drive launched by the comic site in response to legal threats < a href="http://theoatmeal.com/blog/fundraiser_update">has ended with more than $211,233 being donated.
The site's creator said originally he would withdraw the money in cash, and take a picture of it to send to the lawyer who threatened him - along with a cartoon of his accuser's mother.
Previously I stated that because the amount raised was so much larger than expected I was going to divide the money into four charities instead of two, but unfortunately Carreon's lawsuit claims that I'm holding an "illicit fundraiser" and not donating money where I said I would. To avoid further litigation with him, I decided to split the money between the original two charities. If Carreon wanted a minor victory, he got one here.

The UKI CEO of Cisco has responded critically to Twitter founder Jack Dorsey's comments in the Independent that UK entrepreneurs are risk averse:
Phil Smith, UKI CEO, Cisco, said:
“I was interested to read that Twitter’s founder Jack Dorsey believes entrepreneurs in Europe lack ambition compared to those in Silicon Valley. While it may be said British entrepreneurs have a certain reserve compared to their US counterparts, there is still a thriving entrepreneurial community within the UK, with ground-breaking ideas up their sleeves. With the emergence of Tech City and initiatives like Cisco’s British Innovation Gateway (BIG) and TechHub there is now, more than ever, a real opportunity for entrepreneurs to take advantage and turn their ideas and businesses into global success stories. UK entrepreneurs shouldn’t be afraid to live up to their full potential. Rather than aspire to be acquired by the likes of Twitter or Google, they should aspire to be the next Twitter or Google. At Cisco, we believe it is vital to nurture and support the UK’s budding entrepreneurs to kick-start a new wave of innovation and entrepreneurism and help build a brilliant future for Britain. We can help the UK fulfil its potential as a global technology hub and show our American counterparts how it’s done”
