    "Just a quick follow-up note on the work your crews did at my house over the last couple of weeks. In short; the porch railing, painting and tuck pointing was done professionally and looks great. More important, the crews that were out were customer service oriented, thoughtful, friendly and always let me know what was going on. I would not hesitate to recommend Reilly Painting."

  • Technology Becoming Big Factor In Cars

    As technology and wireless internet become more apparent in our everyday lives, it's no surprise that automakers are jumping on the band wagon, and incorporating this more into their vehicles. Sam Grobart of The New York Times Technology section discusses more in his article Turning to Tech on the Road:

    If Mercedes, BMW and Ford have their way, the new cars they build will be able to port apps, games, music and movies from a smartphone to a car’s entertainment system. But for every potential distraction automakers add, they find themselves having to build in ways to prevent drivers from crashing their new smartphone on wheels: automatically applying the brakes at a traffic light; alerting drivers when a car is in the blind spot, or reading traffic signs and slowing a car as speed zones change.

    As cars become ever more vibrant entertainment centers, automakers find themselves in a kind of arms race with themselves that they are powerless to prevent. “We can’t stop the prolific growth of consumer technology,” said Paul Mascarenas, chief technical officer at Ford. “We can’t stop people bringing phones in their cars. We endeavor to make sure people do it in the safest way possible.”

    The push toward greater connectivity in the car can be found in many of the automakers’ booths at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, which happens to run concurrently with the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Increasingly, the two industries are sharing more than just dates on a calendar.

    Ford’s Sync App Link, Mercedes-Benz’s forthcoming DriveStyle app and BMW ConnectedDrive have slight differences in execution, but the purpose is the same: importing apps and content from a smartphone into the car’s displays and controls.
