I'M STANDING NEXT TO the big wheel (at left) that transports me to Dublin several times a month and my young daughter sees the trip as something that extends her sitting room. That's because she has an expectation of viewing YouTube all the way.
She has never known travel as anything other than a connected experience. Intel knows this, predicting that by the time Mia is finished as a senior infant, the car will be the third most-connected place in which people spend time.
We borrow cars from Morrison BMW and when we do, we ask for loaners with USB charging points and aux-in ports. But those little features are nothing when considering the in-dash telematics rolling off assembly lines during the manufacturing of luxury cars.
Because of our commuting schedule and family commitments more than 100 miles away, we spend the equivalent of a work week in our car every month. The kids want connectivity and so do I. I suspect we're not alone in identifying the car as the truly mobile device of the future.
