There is no questioning the saturation of the smartphone market and bigger companies have already had their fair shares of it since a very long time. Now it is time for them to look out for the next market with enough growth potential. It can be said that tech giants like Apple and Google have been throwing as much at the metaphorical wall as possible, just to see what, if anything, sticks. Apple already came up with the Car Play and Google’s push in wearables is easy to see in its Android Wear and Google Glass product.
Apple’s CarPlay is certainly getting all the attention right now but we are suspecting that Google is hardly going to take that for long. Google’s partnership with GM, Hyundai, Honda and Audi that would see the Open Automotive Alliance formed was already unveiled at the CES last year. But everyone nearly forgot about it since there had been no further news of what this partnership is going to bring.
But things have taken a turn now and we have received a leak on ‘Android in the Car’. This is not the official name however, and it is definitely not what the technology is called but we’ll have to do with this one for the time being. Android Police got its hands on this one and it believes that these images and videos are actually recreated renders of an earlier version of the actual software.
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.
