Very interesting assessment of in-car technology with some quotable predictions from Intel, eg:
- By next year the car will be the third most-connected place in which people spend time.
- By 2016, how connected a car is will be a critical buying decision.
- In the future, if car ownership declines but increased use is still needed, connectivity might allow users to “log-on” to a vehicle. So it could even change colour and add the accessories of your choice. Just like a PC desktop, a machine would take on the persona of its user.
- In the US, the average driver spends the equivalent of two months of every year in car; it’s impractical for us to give up connectivity inside of the vehicle. The car is the mobile device of the future.
- We see people bringing physical goods into cars to personalise them, and we expect a digital equivalent to emerge.
