My favorite part of being a freelance writer is interviewing experts. I can find out the deepest technical details from an expert that researching online would take days or even months. A case in point, is that I read in a news story that reason why Verizon Wireless was not providing 4G LTE connections in cars was that you can’t talk and use data at the same time.
When I first starting researching car tires, I knew tires were important to the safety and quality of the ride. I never expected so much technology to go into the Michelin Premier A/S tires with EverGrip.
The desingers used 3D modeling and information from physicists, engineers and chemists. To test the tires, special GPS and tire shaver are used. Then to sell the tires, an illustrator/animator is hired to explain it all.
From now on, I’m spending a little more time researching before I buy new tires.
I’ve been busy writing for AUTO Connected Car and TechHive Car Tech. Here’s what I’ve written recently for TechHive Car Tech:
- Slide show of car tech gifts for Father’s Day.
- How ignition interlock devices can stop drunk drivers in their tracks.
- Three tire technologies that promise you a smoother ride.
- States look to put a charge into electric vehicle sales.
- In connected cars, advertising will come along for the ride.
- Drop the chamois cloth — nanotechnology could mean self-cleaning cars.
- GM announces pricing for its 4G LTE service, to debut in 2015. Chevrolet Malibu.
For AUTO Connected Car:
- Sometime in the future you will be able to find gas and pay for it directly from your car.
- GM may be the first carmaker to offer a connected car app for a smartwatch that actually works.
- Auto connected tanks to be deployed via drones by U.S. Army: tested in Florida.

When I tell people that I write about technology, they think that I am a technical writer for Wireless and Mobile News, for which I am editor and a technology writer or journalist. I cover breaking technology. Part of my talent is figuring out what people want to read and then giving them the information in a format that they can understand.
