Steve Jobs’ Vision Spread To Cars, Auto Industry

Steve Jobs was no doubt a visionary and he and his company have impacted millions of people, making our lives more enjoyable and efficient.

Rest in Peace Mr. Jobs.

In the story below, he even had an impact on the automobile industry.

By Michelle Krebs, Edmunds AutoObserver, October 6, 2011

“Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, who died Wednesday, leaves an imprint on many aspects of our lives, and today’s cars are no exception. As Edmunds.com’s technology editor Doug Newcomb points out, no external devices (nor any single company) has had as much impact on car infotainment as Apple’s iPod and iPhone. I would add to that list the iPad, with the potential of its impact on the car and the auto industry nowhere close to being fully explored and realized.

“As Newcomb explains, the iPod made CDs obsolete when it debuted a decade ago, and it soon became the default device for carrying music into the car. Then followed the iPhone. Loaded with GPS, Google Maps and other destination information, the iPhone causes consumers to pause about the need to buy a pricey in-car navigation system. Yet, it is given that today’s cars come equipped with plugs for the devices.  Now comes the relatively new iPad and we have yet to see completely how it will change the game but it certainly is the subject of experimentation, from automotive marketing to car design.”

Safety or fuel economy? An interesting question

Jeremy Anwyl at Edmunds AutoObserver says:

“In a previous column, I raised the question of how consumers will react to a new generation of Corporate Average Fuel Economy-mandated high-tech, higher-mileage, smaller and less safe vehicles. This has stirred up some debate and is a question I will explore in more depth in future columns. For now, I will talk more fully about the issue of safety. Safety ties to the issue of CAFE, as it is believed that one of the ways that car companies will respond to higher fuel-economy standards is to reduce the weight of vehicles offered. Lower weight equates directly to higher mileage. The ways to accomplish a weight loss are to offer smaller vehicles or to build vehicles using lighter-weight materials (high tensile steel, aluminum and particularly carbon composites) – or to build vehicles employing a combination of smaller size and lighter materials. These materials offer real fuel savings, but they also raise a vehicle’s cost”

Chevrolet Cruze in British Touring Car Championship

“It’s not often that the series crosses these pages, but there’s no getting around the fact that UK racing fans have enjoyed an unprecedented level of competition in the British Touring Car Championship this year. No season in BTCC history has had a bigger or more varied field of entries, the lead in the standings has changed hands a head-spinning eleven times this season, and with one last stop on the calendar at England’s storied Silverstone circuit, it’s down to a whopping five-car showdown for the title.

“Still in contention for the championship this late in the season are Jason Plato (the Fifth Gear host who drives the Chevrolet Cruze touring car), Matt Neal and Gordon Shedden (both in Honda Civics), Mat Jackson (Ford Focus) and James Nash (Vauxhall Vectra). Although Neal, Plato and Shedden are very much in the lead (with 225, 220 and 220 points, respectively), Jackson and Nash (189 and 181) are both still in the running as domination at Silverstone could still catapult either to the crown.”
