Imagine Apple Made Cars?

See All Car Insurance Articles
Apple is a game changing company (ring, ring). They are responsible for most of the innovative products that have ushered in the recent consumer tech boom (Code red: Apple Fan Boy alert). Just think about how much the iPod changed how we listen to music? How much iTunes changed the music industry? How much the iPhone changed mobile phones? And how much the iPad has changed computers? There is even talk of Apple getting into making televisions with the iTV or Apple TV. Apple likes going into industries that have become too complacent (I think that means lazy) and that are ripe for disruption. Other than the tobacco industry (imagine the iCigar) the automotive industry is probably the least eager to change, unless it's to change back to the "good…

See All Car Insurance Articles
Want to get cheaper car insurance? Here are some insane tips that will help you lower your auto insurance and put more money into your wallet (or purse). #1 Get Married If you are a male under 25 years of age you can get a much lower rate (as much as 30 to 40% off) by stating you are married on your auto insurance application.

After reading the BBC's 100 Years From Now article, I started to think about what would the car insurance industry look like 100 years from now. I eventually asked myself the most damning question of all "Would we even have car insurance?" And the answer is not likely. Driver-less Cars Why? Well Google in particular is leading the charge on driver-less technology which as the name implies, allows vehicles to drive by themselves. In fact, Google claims the driverless cars they have been using have driven over 1,000 miles with a goal of reaching 1 million miles. Ironically, the only accident that did occur was when a Google car was being manually driven. Let's fast forward to the year 2012, think about how good this technology will be? It will…
