Your car will get the powers of your cell phone, except you'll be able to drive in it, the ultimate mobile device. Join our Digital LA - Connected Cars panel where we'll discuss how car screens are becoming the fourth screen (after your phone, TV, and tablet). We'll discuss how cars are getting connected to the Internet via in-dashboard car and driving related apps, car and driving related apps, and real time collection of "big data" for cars. This panel is held during LA Auto Show (week of events at LA Convention Center). If you're a go-getter, you'll be inspired to trailblaze the #1 car app for driving, traffic, finding-gas, music, entertainment, travel, restaurants, etc. in the future car app store.
