    Google is teaming up with General Motors, Audi, Honda and Hyundai to bring Android operating systems to cars in 2014.  The partnership is called the Open Auto Alliance and they say their goal is to make driving “safer, easier and more enjoyable.”  The dashboard Android-powered computer would allow drivers to access email, apps, and music from their smartphone directly from their dashboard with most likely a voice recognition system to allow hands-free control.  The system will also feature GPS navigation.  Though Google made the announcement at the Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas this week, they're not the only ones trying to get in on the car-software action.  Apple has already announced deals with BMW, Daimler, Mercedes and Honda, while Microsoft and Ford have had a close partnership for years.
