along with four wheel drive.
This winter in Chicago has been very hard with alternating sub-zero temperatures and snow during the last eight weeks. Confronted with cabin fever, I attended the Chicago Auto Show. Instead of going to the luxury cars and concept vehicles, I spent time looking at delivery vans, hybrid cars, and standard passenger vehicles to see what the latest trend were. It was clear that the smart phone revolution has now joined the automotive industry. When I viewed cars from Ford, Kia, Chrysler, Honda, and Mini all of them featured means to charge mobile devices and display information on a communal screen. Even the working man’s stand-by, the Ford F-150 USB plugs for your smart phone.
This tells me that the mobile revolution which I am part of is not going to stop. If automakers consider it a requirement to accommodate ways to charge and communicate with smart devices then you as a business person need to accommodate those tools into how you manage your business. I had a great time and received a chance to meet the people at Connected World at the show. I spent some time with their staff and it is clear that we have a shared goal and that is to understand how mobile technologies interact with homes and cars.

Cabin fever got me to the auto show but once there I was inspired because if the automakers of the world are on to something then I know that a small entrepreneur like me must also be riding the same wave.
Until next time.
