Ford equipping supervisory speed limits on 2015 Mustangs

Parents can set limits to top speed and speaker volume on select 2015 Fords

Top speed and volume restrictions can be placed on select 2015 Fords, including the Mustang, with the rolling out of the company’s supervisory MyKey technology.

Ford’s MyKey technology allows parents to set limits on how fast select Ford cars can go, or to the volume of their sound system.

The feature, which debuted on the Fiesta ST, will come equipped on 2015 models of the Focus, Mondeo, Mustang and Fiesta range.

Parents will be able to throttle speeds to an even slower 110km/h or 100km/h, from 140km/h, and enable speed alerts.

Other driver assist technologies include the ability to prevent the sound system from playing until passengers up front fasten their seatbelts, and triggering the ‘low-fuel’ warning light to come on at an earlier 140km distance to empty.

The extension of Ford’s MyKey technology follows findings conducted in conjunction with the NRMA.

“We hope this research by Ford supported by NRMA helps to raise this important discussion with parents and young drivers to help curb unnecessary incidents,” said Jack Haley, NRMA Vehicle Expert.

“Ford’s MyKey technology can help parents set limits and guidelines for their young drivers, making the roads a safer place for all motorists.”

The American car company commissioned Galaxy Research to survey 400 parents and 432 ‘young people’ across Australia.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
