Why Google Buzz Should Buy Aha Mobile

I have recently started using Google Buzz for Mobile on my Android phone and have become a big fan of its potential.  I  think its quite unique and more useful if you are only interested in regional data. However, there currently isn't a on Google Buzz to hear updates from other drivers or alerts around me without picking up the phone and looking at it.  See the picture above which is a sample Google Buzz layer on Google Maps screen shot.  I think buying Aha Mobile and integrating the technology into their system would further advance the technology and make it safer for drivers.

Palo Alto-based Aha Mobile have created Aha Radio, a free mobile application that transfers a broad range of web-based information into a customizable radio experience. Aha has created a unique backend platform that safely filters, prioritizes, and delivers Web-based information to drivers. Everything from instant personalized traffic reports to an audio translation of your Facebook wall and from up-to-the minute episodes of your favorite podcasts to personalized restaurant finders. They have also created the first driver-to-driver network similar to the old CB Radio. This allows users to listen to everything from real-time traffic reports to Twitter and Facebook updates as well as red light camera location alerts, without the added stress of fumbling with a device while driving.  Aha Mobile is also a licensee of PhotoEnforced.com's database of locations and will soon be using the data to give drivers verbal alerts of cameras locations near them.  I think thes definitely solves the distracted driver problems.  Check out the demonstration video above.
