Ford Sync Developer Program – CES 2013

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | RSSAdding apps for Wall Street Journal, Aha Radio and even Amazon Cloud Player, Ford continues to move forward with their Sync in-car system. About a year and a half ago Ford partnered with our friends at Bug Labs to create a more customized experience. At CES they moved it forward with the Developer program. They encourage programmers to make apps that can help with the drive while keeping the hands on the wheel and the eyes on the road.

Ford Immersion Lab: Drive Ford Cars Virtually – Ford Tour 2

Ford Immersion Lab: Drive Ford Cars Virtually – Ford Tour

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | RSSIt’s a nice spring day. I roll down the window and place my arm on the door. I turn up the radio. It makes for a cool ride down the street, but I don’t always think “do the engineers worry about this stuff?” The answer is: Yes, they do. The next stop in the Ford Tour was the Immersion Lab. We walked in to see a shell of a Ford Vehicle surrounded by motion capture cameras. Elizabeth Baron** was our guide for this section as she talked about what Ford does to make the ride comfortable. The idea is simple: Put the driver in a virtual environment, then make sure that the vehicle doesn’t hinder their driving techniques. If they look in the blind spot, will they see the road, or a bucket seat? If the user reaches for the radio knob, will it...

Every now and then I even hear ads on the radio that promote SEO because it is a viable thing for anybody’s website. The better it is searched, the more traffic that can come to it. However, there is another trend that has been creeping up. The same ideals, but this time In the microblog field. Something that could easily be known as TSO – or Twitter Search Optimization. Some practice this new ideal and others are even really good at it; but no matter what – if you are ignoring TSO, then you are ignoring a lot of new readers, listeners or viewers. Take a look at this 140 character statement: @geekazine #Twitter #network tool. We are a #blog #podcast and #news site. Check out the #website http://www.geekazine.com (#Geekazine) What...
