  1. Hey Tom,
    just to point out that Progressive has the snapshot that does pretty much what you predict in 2015 for the wearable of things in services. They give you a dongle similar to Automatic and then you drive for a period of time and they track your behaviors to see what kind of risk you are and apply a discount if you meet certain metrics.

  2. Happy New to all of DTNS!
    Just went for my New Year walk and listened to the Predictions show and got a little confused by mugs and percentages and the like…(hangover fog, perhaps?)
    Maybe next year go to more of a competitive style of show – give each predictor a $100 to bet on their predictions, which would show in which they are most confident , and then at the end of the year the others can award how successful they were on a percentage of their bet basis. You could maybe even bet on the other’s predictions.
    Have an even better 2015,
