From time to time my friends at Ford Motor Company bring me out to the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) to check out their new vehicles and of course what else is debuting at the show. It’s a great time to look at new models, concept cars, and new technologies. I got to walk […]
My friends at Ford Automotive brought me to Detroit to check out the Auto show and report on the announcements Ford and other car companies made. The day started pretty quick as we were part of the Ford press conference. We learned they were bringing the Bronco back, along with seeing the new F-150, and […]

As part of Forward with Ford, we stopped by the Filmore in Detroit for dinner and a show with the band “The Head and the Heart“. Before the show, Tim Westergren took the stage. Tim is the Founder of Pandora. Tim started by talking about the future of radio. He continued on how he was […]
Good sound, bad sound. We don’t want to hear that over-volumed “Thump” of the clipping speaker in the car driving next to us, but we do want to hear when someone is honking their horn. We do want to hear a noise that illicits a reaction. That is what NoiseVision works on. The people at […]
Last year when I went out to Dearborn, MI, we saw a lot with virtualization. A mock-up car where you put on the gloves and glasses, then saw yourself move around in that virtual world. However, Ford has taken it to a new level – by simply watching how Hollywood does it. More to the […]
