Vector is Mobile Nation's newest show. It takes the most important topics in technology today, focuses on them from interesting angles, and then discusses the hell out of them. On this episode, Tim Stevens, star of auto and gadget blogs, joins Rene to talk about the computerization of cars, including launch controls, self-driving vehicles, Microsoft Sync, BlackBerry QNX, and iOS in the Car, and the explosive potential of hacking engines.

  • Cool
  • Hell yeah - Tim Stevens. He was always the coolest person to talk to after an Engadget show.
    He seems like a genuinely nice guy.
  • So this is why he left Engadget?
  • Shame that's not an electric car in the image. lol Not that the most practical Ferrari is a bad thing either.
  • Why did Tim leave engadget?? I thought he would have ended up at the Verge like everyone else...
  • I don't know many details but on Twitter Josh Topolsky made it seem like he was forced out and pretty much got screwed.
