Below is a link to an article about Obenbay's debut with an online virtual service advisor. Is this the future? Or will technology remove that personal touch. For me, someone that has built a business on strong relationships and human customer touch points, this is something I am not sure of. But then again, what about the millennials and the Z generation?

Saw a Tesla the other day at the mall with it completely stripped down.
Has tires with tie rods connected to the steering column and a self contained motor at the rear.

I had very high hopes for the beginning of 2017, taking in consideration that we finished the year very strong, and had a very good January.

Just got my e-mail on the latest forum topics. Out of 20 topics 7 are marketing ads from the same person. Also under popular forum topics of 5, 3 are ads also by same person of which no discussion took place. So how are these popular. I get a ton of advertising e-mail. Just didn't expect this from ASO. I do look into some ASO sponsor ads. But this is not necessary.
