Connected cars open up to apps and the cloud

Connected cars open up to apps and the cloud

"The automobile of the future will not just have internet access; it will depend on it, says Jon Stewart. "

It used to be that upgrading your car would involve a trip to the garage for a new set of alloy wheels, a paint-job or perhaps a souped-up sound system.

But those days could soon be over as an increasing number of cars connect to the web. In the same way as the smartphone was changed forever by the arrival of the app, car manufacturers are now betting on these small pieces of software to drive the future of the automobile. Soon, customising your wheels could be as simple as tapping your dashboard touchscreen to download the latest must-have app.

Welp, they finally did it, they "app'd" my fuckin' car - http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20120719-road-opens-for-connected-cars
