45: Asymcar 45: The Cost of Technology Made That Impossible

"Honda Took Pride in Doing Everything Itself. The Cost of Technology Made That Impossible". Edward Niedermeyer and Bertel Schmitt join Horace and Jim. We begin with a discussion of Honda and automotive grade linux. We shift gears a bit and consider transport as a service around the globe. We contrast emerging app brands with the traditional auto eco-system and ponder a "meaningful contribution" from Apple. Apologies for intermittent audio issues during our around the globe conversation.

43: Car Subscriptions with Tarun @CondorDetroit

42: The Empire Strikes Back

We consider the news that BMW's i3 will revert to metal in its next iteration. A question of business models engages much of our conversation, from optimized cars designed for transportation as a service to dynamic routes, pricing and arrival options. Dyson's rumored auto ambitions divert our attention. We close by musing on the utility of big data and the evolution of transportation.

42: The Empire Strikes Back

40: Supply Chain Sovereign

Does the automotive supply chain drive strategy? What are the new product implications of legacy supply chains? Are organizations bound to supply chain practices? Does Toyota's supply chain structure give them a market advantage? Why does the Fiat 500's CarPlay work well, but a Chrysler Minivan not at all?

38: Four Wheel Talisman?

Would you buy this car? We begin with a discussion of recent announcements and deal making. Horace questions our four wheel obsession and wonders if the next platform origin might surprise us. The Economist recently asserted that data is the new oil. We consider this statement in light of recent consortiums, from automotive linux to maps and data sharing schemes. We note Asymcar's fourth anniversary and reflect a bit on earlier shows, including Richard Marks Eco-V (Asymcar 8) and David Levinson (Asymcar 7).

38: Four Wheel Talisman?

37: Asymcar 37: Dark Matter Innovation

Does place matter? We consider geography, the hype cycle and S curves while reflecting on what is perhaps, at present a "phoney war"(1). Does geography play a role in disruption? Are "hyped" optics necessary for the new new thing? What skills are required for disruptive innovation in and around the auto ecosystem? How do cycle times (2) color our outlook? A good conversation. The Phoney War. Cycle Time.

36: New, or Better?

Cycle times loom larger in the clash of the automotive and smartphone eco-systems. We reflect on BMW's i brand again, while the company appears to retrench and focus on their legacy facilities and cars. We divert a bit into a discussion of new vs better and the business strategy supporting such choices. Finally, financialization looms, perhaps an opening during the next downturn. the last 5 minutes disappeared into the ether.. sorry.

36: New, or Better?

35: Asymcar 35: We are all Germans

Can utility companies be recruited to help sell Electric Vehicles when they reward their customers for using less electricity? This plus the paradoxes of innovations in distribution, sales, regulation and the 1959/1960 Henney Kilowatt.
