About the Lecture
In a time when the boundaries between home, work, car, and plane are blurring, Motorola is exploring ways to enable people to have seamless transitions from one venue to another. These include applications like being able to continue to hear the news story that you began listening to in your car, and picking it up immediately upon entering your house (your house is "smart" enough to know what you want to hear) to more complex ways to enable your work environment and your personal media to be with you even while attending a conference.

Warrior describes how thousands of Motorola engineers are trying to create a transparent network so that individuals can take their music, video, pictures ---virtually any kind of data with them -- wherever they go. “Mobile devices have become the remote control for life. Let us do things we have not thought about before,” says Warrior. For 75 years, Motorola has specialized in what Warrior describes as “preemptive innovation.” This means not just enabling new ways to communicate (for example, creating the two-way radio and cell phone), but giving customers new reasons to communicate. Within technological view are cars that can download information about a driver’s preferences, from seat height to mirror settings, and homes that can broadcast a favorite radio show from room to room, so the listener misses nothing.
