The car is the biggest gadget we own. And if it does truly turn into the former, then we may be buying new ones as often as we do computers!
Major chip manufacturers are boosting the brains in cars, making them think faster than they can move. Soon there will be very little your car can’t do that your favorite handheld does.
Is it possible for people to be as crazy about their cars as they are about their phones? Today, people have an intimate attachment to their phones that is hard to shake. It doesn’t even seem possible to sit down at dinner, or even sit down in a class, without texting, Instagramming, tweeting, etc.
Let’s face it, that glow on our faces as we stare down at our smartphones is all too familiar. Most people can’t even SLEEP without their phone right by their sides.
However, we’re also safe to dream about the bright future of the digital, cloud-connected car.

When you think about it, it does indeed start to sound as though the car can become the future of all mobile technology. Especially with companies such as Texas Instruments and Nvidia collaborating to make this revolutionary change.
Google is even working on the project to bring about the robotic, driverless car. It seems like there is more exciting news in store for the automotive industry than at any time in its history — the only real question is which way does this digital monster go from here?
