The great thing about living in Silicon Valley is that all of the car companies have advanced technology labs here so you hear about all the new gee-whiz stuff before it appears in the cars you actually buy.
The tough part of that is that also means that every time you hear about something really new, really sexy, you wonder if you should wait on your next vehicle.
The really bad thing about living in Silicon Valley (in addition to the cost of housing) is traffic sucks!
In fact San Francisco, congestion is the second worst in the U.S, 26th worldwide. San Jose is right up there also, coming in at number 51 worldwide in congestion. But the way technology businesses are expanding here, we'll catch up ... soon.
