 Reducing Boot Times for In-Car Computers, Part II

"There are several good reasons to reduce boot times besides getting the system up quickly when the car starts. PVRs (personal video recorders) such as TiVo are available everywhere, but there are no good, well-integrated PMRs (personal media recorders) for in the car. Two key ingredients are needed to make this type of device work well with an in-car computer: the ability to download dynamically a list of program times; and the ability for the in-car computer to wake up on a schedule, do some work and go back to sleep."
