Do you think that car or auto is a gadget? In real world, most people perhaps do not think so. They separate an automobile from a laptop or cell phone. However, in the leading technology blogs, I can find increasing coverage of cars these days. For example, today, I can found two stories about the auto industry in Engadget and TechCrunch:
Yes, both of these posts are directly related to technology. So, I find nothing wrong in Engadget or TechCrunch covering them. However, my understanding is that we will see more coverage of cars in the coming months because of two reasons.
First of all, cars are getting increasing number of gadgets. Secondly, auto industry is a big one and the potential of revenue from advertisements is huge. On the other hand, price of gadgets is decreasing. Just 5 years ago, you could not get a decent laptop below $1000. Now, you can get the best tablet PC under $1000.
