A Spring Playlist for You

Put seatbelt on, make sure my cargo is secure, get my phone out to map my route, and I usually turn on Pandora to my Justin Timberlake station. Then off I go, thinking very little that my trip will result in my safe arrival at my destination. I’m a huge proponent of no texting and … Continue reading

“iOS in the Car” Grows Up, Becomes “CarPlay”

The battle for mobile platform dominance in cars wages on. A recent post by Lara, Apple or Android?, discussed Google’s alliance with automakers to establish an Android-based standard. This came after Apple’s announcement of “iOS in the Car” back in June of 2013. But now Apple’s iOS-based standard is back in the news and with a much more Apple-esque name: CarPlay. Apple says that CarPlay will give drivers distraction-free access … Continue reading

Around the country, people are (hopefully) focused on gratitude. Jeffrey, Ashlee, and I took some time out to say our thanks for a few things, auto related, of course. Here they are! Jenn. I’ve heard it said that gratitude should focus on the small things, so I’m thankful that all the small things that make my car run well are, well, running well. I’m also pretty happy with my new … Continue reading
