They're not building a car, they're building android for autos

January 6th, 2016

Software is step by step getting involved in each part of our daily rituals, the last frontier in some respect is the time in our cars.

Podcasts have had massive growth, off the back of smartphone pairing, bringing new media in to cars.

TheDrive talks about how the Google Car is a hoax and they’re right, Googles building the android version.

The actual software which drives the cars is next, that’s why everyone has taken a keen interest. And the business model has potential too, imagine charging $50/year per car, that’s a $780m/year business in the US.

Update: That’s $780m/year in incremental revenues, with up to 253m cars on the road in the US, it’s potentially mindblowingly big.
