Wi-Fi on the Fly

I was pleased to hear that Audi are now producing cars with Wi-fi built in. I like this idea, which I am confident will catch on. I often find that technology moves so fast, that we can forget how much things have changed.

Today, I am going to go on record, to say that in car computers will advance rapidly over the coming years. The options for an onboard computer will be endless and it won’t be long before your car will be:

Recommending restaurants or nearby hotels Streaming live tv Logging onto internet media players like ‘iplayer’ Give information on friends locations Receiving bespoke news and sport Reporting on stocks and shares Etc, etc…

It’s only a matter of time until cars replicate the new found flexibility of the smart phone. So I predict ‘smart cars’. What next? Cars that drive themselves?
