profit rose nearly six per cent as the Japanese
automaker's recovery from floods in Thailand
the previous year offset recent sales losses in
China. Honda reported Friday a quarterly profit
of 75.7 billion yen ($765 million), up from 71.5
billion yen the same period the previous year.

TOKYO---Toyota is teaming up with Microsoft
for an Internet service that links cars, home
computers and smartphones so users can find
nearby tourist spots, connect on social net-
works and learn about new models.
The beefed up version of Toyota s Internet
site Gazoo.com starts May 30 in Japan, and
will be based on "cloud" computing from
Microsoft Corp. called Windows Azure. Overseas
plans are still undecided.
According to the US software giant, it is the
first time the technology, which also uses Share-
point software, is being used for a company
Gazoo.com users tripled over the last five
years to 1.65 million. Toyota Motor Corp. said
Friday it wants to raise that to two million over
the next year.
All the world s major automakers are working
on similar technology to bring autos up-to-
date with the Internet age, from finding restau-
rants to helping ensure safe driving.
But a major motive for Toyota is appealing
to younger Japanese, who are rapidly losing
interest in buying cars and are spending their
money on smartphones and video games. The
trend is so widespread there is a coined phrase,
"kuruma banare," or "departure from cars."
Among the Net content in the works are
video games, shopping-site links, virtual events
and a special social network to chat about cars,
according to Toyota. A smartphone application
will guide drivers with an electronic voice to
30,000 destinations from 250 routes.
The site will also offer information on more
than 3,000 new and used models, including
interviews with engineers.
Switching to Microsoft s cloud computing
will cut costs for operating the services, although
Toyota plans to invest more money in new con-
tent for Gazoo.com.
Toyota reached an agreement with Microsoft
in April 2011, to work together on telematics,
or network technology for cars.
Toyota looked at other cloud computing serv-
ices before picking Microsoft for the latest proj-
ect, said Hiroyuki Yamada, an executive at e-
Toyota, which looks over such technology.
It is unclear whether the site will really lead
to car sales, but Toyota will be able to tap into
data on consumer behaviour, as well as try to
revive Japanese people s fading interest in cars,
Gazoo.com is the brainchild of Akio Toyoda,
the president and grandson of Toyota s founder.
Well versed in Internet technology, Toyoda was
ahead of his time in foreseeing the importance
of social networks and stressing how Toyota
needs a presence in the blogosphere.
Toyota has a partnership with another US
cloud computing company, Salesforce.com,
which runs a social network for Toyota plug-
in hybrid owners so they can see how efficiently
they have been driving and be alerted when
their vehicle has recharged. Toyoda also pio-
neered that partnership. (AP)
