VW adds USB port to some European models

Though many companies have solved the dilemma of playing digital music in your car by adding auxiliary (iPod) inputs, that solution still renders all your USB flash drives useless. Volkswagen, however, has announced that a number of its vehicles in Europe can be ordered with a USB port in the center console. This type of port would connect not only to an iPod or other digital music player, but could also connect to a laptop or read audio files directly from a USB flash drive. While it appears the port will is unable to charge a device that's using it, we can only imagine how excited the car hacking community is.
