Minis to get built-in streaming music via startup Aupeo

Mini is about to become the first mass production car with built-in streaming music, courtesy of  German startup Aupeo. Aupeo bills itself as “Pandora for the rest of the world”, providing curated radio stations and a personal station based on recommendations. The company has quietly pursued a strategy of making deals with hardware vendors to pre-install Aupeo on various devices including Acer mobile phones, Asus netbooks and Philips TVs.
