"It's really easy to say, and really hard to do, where you're conveying a lot of information in a short period of time in a way that customers just get and so that you don't have to explain it to people," GM's chief infotainment officer Phil Abram told me.
Before GM, Abram spent years at Sonos. He became GM's chief of infotainment five years ago. He loves his job, but wrinkles his nose at mention of the title. "Infotainment is a terrible word. I was filled with self loathing for taking the job of chief infotainment officer. It's such a made up and inwardly focused narcissistic industry word," he said. He prefers to look at it in a more holistic way. "No, the car is not a computer," Abram said. "The last thing I want is my car to be like a computer. You want [your car] to be magic. It's not trying to replicate a smartphone experience in the vehicle. Abram used the analogy of a kitchen to describe a car company's role - you might use gadgets in your kitchen for cooking and prepping, but you would never describe your kitchen as electric. Abram says the biggest challenge for carmakers is making a platform that can stand the test of time by anticipating uploads of the future, and most importantly does not behave like a snail. "It's got to be snappy fast," he said.

Drivers and passengers will achieve greater levels of efficiency and safety according to GM's Phil Abram, the executive director of the Connected Products and Strategy division.
Abram says people spend an average of 46 minutes per day in their car and OnStar Go will help by allowing the motorist to avoid traffic when you're low on fuel, then activate a fuel pump and pay without getting out of the car.
