Connected cars (something CableLabs has researched) seem to be an inevitable addition to the Internet of Things, and Chevy is hoping to lead the trend. OnStar (yes, that OnStar) will be offering 4G LTE connectivity to some 30 General Motors vehicles, starting next month with the Chevy Malibu.
OnStar will offer a subscription package for the data, which will allow drivers and passengers to stream music, play videogames, and surf the Internet.
