Podcast: Apple, Atari, AT&T, and how technology is changing the daily drive

Should you give up your unlimited data plan on AT&T? How much will you pay for your next ticket to a Husky football game? Why is Apple moving to a new store in Microsoft’s backyard? And what’s the deal with Atari’s latest revival of its classic games?

Bryan Mistele of INRIX in the KIRO-FM studios.

Those are just a few of the burning questions answered this week on the GeekWire radio show and podcast.

We’re joined in the studio by Bryan Mistele, the CEO of INRIX, the Kirkland-based traffic data company that powers a wide variety of traffic-related services in North America and overseas in cars, mobile devices and online applications.

Mistele is one of the speakers at the upcoming event, “Beyond Oil: Transforming Transportation,” set for Sept. 7, at the Intiman Playhouse in Seattle, and gives us a preview by sharing his thoughts on the future of transportation and how technology could change the way we drive our cars.
