    Quentin Hardy, a writer for The New York Times, discusses that the next big technology boom will be the car. Hardy explains the incorporation of internet into our vehicles will become huge over the next years. Read his article below:

    SAN DIEGO — Cars, one of the great mobile devices to begin with, are about to get connected to the Internet like never before. It will change not just how we drive, but the economics of the car business.

    “Five percent of cars are connected today,” said Glenn Lurie, president of AT&T’s Emerging Devices business. He was speaking of new vehicles, not all cars on the road. “Three to five years from now, 100 percent will be connected. You’ll see diagnostics, calls when the airbag goes off, real-time traffic reports, entertainment in the back seat.”

    Mr. Lurie was at CTIA, a wireless industry gathering in San Diego. On Tuesday, General Motors’s Cadillac unit showed off a luxury car platform, called Cue, which will appear in three car models in 2012. In addition to the safety monitoring features, the version shown in the Cadillac XTS featured an 8-inch touch screen that displayed maps, climate controls, weather and text messaging, among other things. It was possible to plug a smartphone in the car in order to have the messages read aloud.

    Ford has shown a similar entertainment system, as well as monitoring and information systems for its electric cars, so drivers can find the nearest charging station. AT&T works with Ford, as well as BMW and Nissan, and talks with lots of other manufacturers.
