Sam Abuelsamid

Sam is back to talk about whether car screens would start pushing ads to your car's infotainment computer screen. Soon, you'll be able to add apps to your car's computer interface, and that could lead to ads.  Already, Starbucks and Dominos have deals with Ford and other manufacturers to include their apps on their infotainment systems. But car companies say they have no plans to do it, even though it's can be done. Leo says what's cool is two-way communication between, say parking lots and the car, enabling the driver to know if there are parking spots available. You could even pay for parking before you even get there.  But Leo says it's only a matter of time before the car companies use it as a potential revenue stream. And he HATES that. 

But Sam also says that there could be a good interaction between your preferred mechanic or service center when it's time to schedule a service maintenance appointment. And that would be good.
