what the Fiesta needs

I stumbled across a news article that Viper (the car alarm people) have released an iphone app that can start your car.

Now that is cool! Can you imagine going car shopping and the salesman being like, oh let me just warm up the car while we have a cup of coffee. What's next, an iphone app that can tap into the backup camera of a vehicle?

From Wired.com:

Remote starters are always a popular holiday gift in Northern climes, so particularly lazy shoppers will be heartened to learn one can be downloaded on iTunes.

The Viper SmartStart from Directed Electronics is an iPhone-compatible remote starter capable of warming up or cooling down a car. Even if you’re not a fan of letting your car idle in a parking lot, Viper says the SmartStart could come in handy for remotely locking or unlocking the doors, popping the trunk or even sounding the car alarm.
