24-hour days just don't work
“To my shame, while my wife lay in hospital with our hours-old baby, I went to the meeting.” His colleague mentioned that the client would respect him for making the decision to be there, but the look on the client’s face showed little respect.
“I had hurt my family, my integrity, and even the client relationship.”

The integration of apps into vehicles through smartphone-tethering and direct integration is expected to get a boost from the launch of service such as Apple’s CarPlay, which was announced earlier this year and integrates the iPhone with in-car entertainment systems. "
In-vehicle apps to proliferate thanks to Apple’s CarPlay: report
By Chantal Tode, Mobile Marketer
Information Systems Data Scientist/Engineer at Aerospace & DefenseThe only concern is distraction. Fatalities. I don't want my kids or myself dead because people now have complete entertainment centers in their cars. If they add these kinds of features, they should engage "safety driver" features that drive for the drivers. I mean, seriously. If they want a taxi ride, and to watch movies or chat or read the latest? Let them...just don't make it available WITH hands on the wheel controlling a deadly weapon."

Generally a good article. The 2.6 hours a day is way higher than the average American spends in the car. The average car is used about 42 minutes a day nationally, and not all Americans have cars. Heavy commuters might spend that much, but saying that we spend more than 10% of every 24 hour day in a car is way off.
Automakers have one challenge that computer makers don't, and this has caused Ford, GM, Audi and all the others to move with great caution: security. Cars are so technologically dependent today, that any but the most benign interaction between car and consumer-tech has to be scrutinized. Imagine what would happen if a malicious bug stalled out your car at 75 miles per hour? Or locked up the steering wheel? Almost unlimited liability for the automaker. That's a worst case scenario, but we expect car electrics to perform in 140 degree temperatures over bumpy roads in dust and rain for 10-12 years without a failure. There is no 'reboot' button on a car. A Windows blue-screen is an unacceptable event - that would be a recall event. Car companies will get there, but it will seem like a lifetime for us. And speaking of lifetime, the average car on the road today was 5 years old when the first iPhone was introduced. It might not be fair to expect our cars to change as fast as our phones...
Allan RamellaSenior Product Manager / Integrated Systems Capability Manager at Smiths DetectionJames, great insight on the future of the "connected auto". It will be interesting to see how the evolution of adjacent IoT markets such as smart parking meter (i.e. SFpark) can quantify the value proposition of owning a connected vehicle. The potential of IoT and mobile apps is endless and will definitely be a game changer on the way we live....
Intrinsically automotive subjects such PAYG insurance, road tax, tolls, fuelling, telemetry, require many obstacles (legislative, insurance, security) to be overcome before gaining traction enough to be considered viable and mainstream. Julian CarroVideo Business Development Manager at Avaya
