Remember when the Internet was something you tapped into from home, and your car was something that got you from here to there? Now, of course, we hope can update a Facebook page or check a portfolio while cruising the interstate.
The market for Web-enabled electronics in cars is expected to skyrocket, and by 2017 more than 86 percent of the vehicles on the road will be connected, every new car sold in the U.S. will be connected.
It’s a sign of the times we live in where personal wireless connectivity is kind of a part of life, We just want to be able to get such data out of the cloud wherever we are and whenever we want it. Though I have owned a Tesla for over an year now – it still intrigues me in many ways. Every time a a new software update is beamed down to the car – the anxiety to know about the new features take over. It’s like owning a new gadget every few months. Many people have asked me if I like the car – my answer – “it is now part of my everyday life, it will be very hard to go to another car unless they can make it so connected and convenient.”
And for the skeptics – Yes it is a 100% electric car and it goes 250 miles on a charge. It takes only 2 hours to charge it back up using a home charger!!!
