Automatic Closing

I was sad to get an email today announcing that Automatic Labs is shutting down. Automatic made a device that plugs into your car’s diagnostic port and send all sorts of data to your iPhone. It was a way to make your not-so-smart car just a bit smarter. I received a complimentary unit when they sponsored Mac Power Users ages ago and then I bought two more for my wife and daughter’s car because I liked it so much. We’ve continued to use those devices in the intervening years and I’m sorry to see them shutting down. They are offering rebates to some customers.
