[Article] Want to Develop Apps for an Electric Car? Good Luck by Nate Swanner

Did I tell you I saw a Tesla store in person?

Sure did! At St. John's Town Center in Jacksonville, FL. Right by the Apple Store, ironically enough. Across the tiny avenue from the Disney Store and Nordstroms.

They just had one car and a bunch of employees.

Anyway, the article: Here.

API, or Application Programming Interface, is a set of routines, protocols, and tools for building software and applications - and that extends to the GUI in vehicles as well.





I've been in Lincoln SUVs with some that show a variety of things, from In-Cabin Wi-Fi to Sirius XM Radio to Android Auto.

Tesla doesn't have an official one. There are undercover hacks that do some fun things, but nothing official - and nothing that I know of that could compromise the integrity of the car - or your safety.

Considering how deeply these new cars are connected, I do think this is a relatively smart thing for now. This article worries because the envelope isn't being pushed. I get it. There's a certain amount of security risks with this, as there are with everything. Do you move forward and risk a malicious attacker with someone's life, or stay hidden?

Contactless Tech’s Role in the New Guest Experience ft. Intelity and The George

 Contactless hospitality technology is growing. You want to get away, and you'll be damned if a little thing like a deadly virus will stop you! But you still don't want to touch things. Ew. During the chat between INTELITY CEO Robert Stevenson and THE GEORGE Director of Operations Kerrie Hunter, you’ll learn how the historic boutique hotel has adapted a mobile-first guest experience in the wake of COVID-19—and how they see contactless technology affecting the future of hospitality. I don't remember how I found INTELITY (probably hoping to score a position with them), but I liked them enough to stay on the e-mail lists.
