After a long wait the largest streaming service in the world is finally coming to MINI Connected. Joining Pandora, Tunein and Stitcher, Amazon Cloud Player, Deezer, Napster and Audible, Spotify is part of the MINI connected family of integrated apps that gives drivers a safe autmootive grade interface to control apps from their iOS and Android devices.
Official release: We all know that the new MINI rocks, but now there’s even more for music-loving MINI fans to be jazzed about with the introduction of Spotify to the brand’s roster of third-party App integration.

During a short afternoon break today, I nerded out with a couple of friends about online back-up. The conversation turned into a Who’s the Biggest Nerd contest and for once, I lost. The winner came up with Navdy. If you don’t know what it is, I’m sure you’ll want once after reading this post. continued →

At long last our interview with Glympse’s Partner Product Manager, James Stanton is available! James was kind enough to give us some of his precious time to discuss a number of topics, including: the various ways people use the app, the process of working with MINI on the MINI Connected integration, and upcoming features (i.e. a Glympse keyboard! How rad is that?!).
As a reminder, the app is free and you can find it on the App Store, on Google Play and on the Windows Phone Store. Again, we are fan of the app so don’t hesitate to give it a try. You’ll like it too.
Also note that this week’s show has been edited. We were going to talk about the “surprising” EPA ratings of the F56, but we are holding off on that, for now, waiting for some more information and clarifications from MINI USA and the EPA. Stay tuned!

Right after the end for MTTS 2014, db and Todd ask me if I’d like to hang out with them on White Roof Radio, and for someone who’s listened to every single episode since the end of 2007, I was really honored and humbled to have received such an invitation. I obviously could not turn it down.
White Roof Radio entered its tenth year of existence last August and we hope that many more will follow. During that time, we’ve seen the podcast evolve in content and size from a three-guest show (i.e. db, Todd, Gabe), to a four-guest show (i.e addition of Mike B.), to a larger team of co-hosts (i.e. addition of Chad, Nathaniel and myself) trading places on a weekly basis.
But through all these years one thing remained consistent and that is our dedicated audience. This audience consistently propels us to the top five/ten most listened automotive podcasts on iTunes – which is mind boggling – and it continues to grow at a rapid pace. continued →

Long-time follower of White Roof Radio should remember that we used to invite contributors to the MINI Community on a regular basis. We also record exclusive conversations with MINI Executives during official events such as auto shows, press junkets or MINI Takes The States.
Next week we will kick-off our 2014-2015 interview season with James Stanton, Partner Product Manager at Glympse. continued →

Because of my job, I always need to have a pulse on what’s happening in the enterprise and consumer technology spaces. To that extent, I spend a good amount of time reading news and analyses or listening to dedicated podcasts. Actually, the real reason I do all that is because I’m a full-on nerd but that’s a topic for a different conversation.
This week, my tech news-reading obsession led me to discover Change Lane. continued →

For those of you who listened to recent episodes of White Roof Radio, you probably heard that we are currently testing Automatic. This accessory acts as a smart driving assistant that communicates with a car’s on-board computer and uses a smartphone’s capabilities to provide insights and data points on how to improve your driving style. Additionally, Automatic partners with car manufacturers to have their platform integrated into infotainment systems. continued →
