Hello Mobile Enthusiast... and welcome to another mobile, location-tech news roundup. Hopefully our American readers had an awesome 4th of July and took in some fine BBQ and fireworks! Speaking of fireworks, one of my favorite places to watch them is in San Diego, CA and you have a great reason to hit San Diego this October as the Telematics West Coast event is scheduled to take place there on Oct 30. About the event... the West Coast tech community and the automotive industry will unite to address the challenges and opportunities in delivering the next generation of smart content and services and how data might just hold the key to getting there. Look for speakers from Land Rover, continental, Trip Advisor, Panasonic, Nissan, Ford, Yelp and many more! Something for our soccer (err... football fans - and our sympathy does go out to our colleagues in Brazil!). The Seattle Sounders FC football clud has enlisted the help of cutting edge, wearable technology to give them an edge. The Sounders use Tableau to visualize massive amounts of data generated from wearable technology on its players and systems designed to track their movements and health. To measure players' performance and effectiveness, the team collects data on its players sleep patterns, GPS positioning on the field, the speed and distance they run in practice and in games and more - awesome stuff here! Finally, be sure to check out this weeks' feature article on BYOD, bring your own device, a hot topic for many businessses and a great way to stay on top of tech. Have a fabulous week all!
