Cool. Now I will be able to ask Siri if it is raining out so I'll know if I should turn on the windshield wipers or not. Technology is awesome!

More interesting was the link to what cars are getting it first: entry-level Chevys.

I really hate this trend toward ever-increasing numbers of digital knick-knacks in cars....

But can I play Angry Birds on it?

I imagine that the real users of "perpetually voice texting your friends all the time and voice controlling your music" will be the youngsters who have been hard-wired into the whole "always linked to technology" culture. I'm not surprised that entry-level new cars will be the test bed of this kind of technology.

Won't be an issue for me because I make sure I know where I'm going before I get behind the wheel.

Says the guy guilty of phone use while driving. Oh, I know you only do it when it's safe. Well fark you! I'm sick of you assholes on a death-dealing collision course with my existence because you have to use your phone. Some people want to ban guns in the hands of citizens but how often do you see that? How often do you see a phone in the hands of a motor-vehicle operator. All the farking time. Do you feel safe when you see that? Are you in fear for your life? Can you do anything about it?

Anything that will keep phones out of the hands of drivers is a good thing.

Nah, fark it.

Blood for the blood god!

Actually I never use my phone while driving (not even hands free) but you don't know that because you missed the joke.

It must be exciting living your entire life in a small town.

Karne: It must be exciting living your entire life in a small town.


I'm not a helpless nitwit so I know how to read a map. And since I spend my time in the car paying attention to where I'm going instead of idly fiddling with silly electronic doodads it's pretty rare that I don't have at least a general idea of where I am, where I've been and where I'm headed.

But that's just me... I'm all old school with that "paying attention and not being a useless farknut while I'm behind the wheel" stuff.

Ever heard of a Thomas Guide? They must have one somewhere in the Smithsonian. It was a set of maps printed on paper. You are going to have to look up paper on your own.

Mr.Tangent: But can I play Angry Birds on it?


Yes.  It will be a text to voice version of the DOS version:

Given that Ford and Chrysler are both using Microsoft technology, it does kind of make sense that GM would jump in bed with Apple.

As long as I can root it and load linux.

I haven't followed up on iOS map that much. Is it still shiat like when it launched?

Masso: I haven't followed up on iOS map that much. Is it still shiat like when it launched?


No, it's very stable and smooth. It just hasn't changed significantly over time - features here and there, but the basic look and feel has been roughly the same for a few years.

Article fails to mention that these cars will only be available with an automatic transmision, can only operate on Apple-controlled roads, and must be refueled at Apple gas stations because of the new proprietary fuel tank inlet.

When has Apple ever done anything original?

I'm going to sound old here, but I always have a (paper) map when I drive into parts unknown....
