There was a time, not long ago, that computers were reserved for governments, universities, and the super geeky. But as time went on computers became smaller, more user-friendly, and more integrated into our daily lives. This page marks that shift.
The automobile is no longer a purely mechanical device, it is also a computer on wheels. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto make it possible (with the help of a global positioning system) to know where we are going, how long it will take to get there, and keep us connected (via a massive telecommunications network). What we are able to do in our cars, just a few decades ago, would have been considered science fiction, but soon will be taken for granted.
