Open Automotive Alliance Unveiled at CES 2014 Wants Android in your Car

Google and several companies in the automotive and technology world have announced a new alliance at CES 2014. The Open Automotive Alliance wants to work together to get the Android ecosystem into cars cruising the streets around the world. The OAA has a number of high profile companies as members.

Member companies include Audi, GM, Google, Honda, Hyundai, and NVIDIA. Other technology and automotive companies are being invited to participate. The goal of the OAA is to bring the Android platform into the car starting this year. There is no firm indication when the first cars will land using Android.

The OAA expects vehicles using Android to hit the streets later this year. The OAA is dedicated to a common platform that will drive innovation and make technology in the car safer and more intuitive.

“We are very pleased to join this alliance with Google as a founding member because Honda is committed to providing the very best connected-car experience to our customers,” said Yoshiharu Yamamoto, president, CEO and director of Honda R&D Co., Ltd. “The Honda team is looking forward to collaborating with Google and all OAA members to help advance the safety, value and ease of use of connected-car technologies.”

Kickstarter campaign begins for iPhone-controlled Bluetooth padlock

Source: 9to5Mac

Locks always struck me as the perfect application for Bluetooth LE: walk up to the lock, it detects the phone in your pocket or bag, checks the code and unlocks. If you need to let someone else in, you authorize their app on a one-off or permanent basis. Simple, secure, convenient. There are a bunch of Bluetooth door locks on the way, and you can even lock and unlock your Mac via Bluetooth, so why not a Bluetooth padlock too? Noke is a Kickstarter campaign for a $5 ...

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
