Excitement for whats to come in the future

I was coming out of the movie theater the other day when I noticed a pole that looked kind of like a parking meter in front of a few cars. This got me curious as to what it was upon further inspection I noticed it was a car charging station for the new electric cars. Seeing this got me really excited for some reason. I dont know if it comes down to the fact that I love the idea of having an electric car or if its just the normal excitement I get when I discover new technology at work in the community I live in. what ever it is I like it a lot. I am most excited about seeing the acceptance of electric cars into every day life because it means we will have to use less and less gasoline as a country on a daily basis. Not only will this help the the owners of the electric cars but the owners of the gas cars as well, because this means that gas prices could fall because of the surplus gas that is not being used. So really electric cars area a win win for every one. I hope that we continue to see more and more electric cars make there way onto the market in the near future.

What is the connected car

I recently watched a tech video all about the “connected” car. You might be wondering what is a connected car, Well I am here to explain that to you. A connected car is a car that has a built in 3G radio that will connect you to the internet. I got to thinking why do I need the internet in my car, then it was explained that the 3G connection is used for several cool purposes. The first purpose and probably the nicest one is navigation, it will allow your GPS to pin point your location making it easier to get places. another cool thing that connected cars can do is connect to internet radio such as I-heart radio and pandora, eliminating the need for a FM tuner and your smart phone. the final use as you may have guessed is telecommunications, such as making and receiving phone calls and it also supports services such as On Star and other helpful services. Another thing that this allows is the ability to control your electric car right from your smart phone via an app that connects to your car (not every manufacturer has an app out). Through the app you can control when your electric car charges, you can also make it auto start as well as do a couple other various things. In my opinion connected cars are going to lead the future of the automotive industry. I am actually surprised that this technological advancement was not released sooner.
