Jay Loney, Principal Program Manager on Windows Embedded Automotive, had a great discussion with Geekwire’s Todd Bishop and John Cook. Jay covered the state of the art in automotive technology, the in-car app experiences (what he calls hot-rodding for geeks), and the future of the IP-connected car. It’s definitely worth a listen to learn more about where the driving experience of the future is headed.

During the planning phases of Windows Embedded Standard 2011, we invested considerable effort to make Windows Embedded Standard 2011 customizable to the point where our customers will be able to create a custom experience – from the moment the machine boots up until it shuts down. To reach this goal we introduced several new packages and features.

If you want to get me excited, talk to me about sports. Ask me to play some pickup basketball, to watch some American football, or nerd out with a computer game like Football Manager. The competition, strategy, and feats of athleticism found in sports just seem to tickle my fancy. I can’t wait for my children to get old enough to compete, so they can get the experiences and life lessons that sports teach so well.
But there’s a cloud hanging over many team sports: concussions and the serious impact they can have on the well-being of athletes. The issue has been discussed for years, but articles like the one written by Malcom Gladwell in 2009, and the increasing awareness of former athletes who commit suicide after head injury, have brought the discussion to the forefront of the sporting world. The link between contact sports, especially football, and brain damage are real, and are concerning for younger children and teenagers. I love football…but do I want my son to play it in high school? We’ll see, but I never would have had questioned this just ten years ago.
I’m not the only one who’s concerned; many smart people are trying to find ways to allow athletes to continue on in these sports while greatly minimizing the risk. From better helmets to stricter rules in youth sports, we’re seeing advancements. Ultimately, I think the best ideas will be those that take advantage of modern technology, which is getting cheaper, faster and smaller every year.

In my role working with Windows Embedded partners, I often get a front-row seat at the debut of some innovative intelligent-system solutions. This week, P97 Networks is launching a cool new cloud-based mobile commerce platform and site controller software at the Association for Convenience and Fuel Retailing (NACs) show in Atlanta, Georgia. Their intelligent system, called PetroZone, is built on Windows Azure, Microsoft Dynamics and Windows Embedded technologies, and integrates with third-party point-of-sale, electronic payment and fuel control servers.
The July and August 2013 updates for the Windows Embedded Compact 2013 online documentation are now live on MSDN and CodePlex.
