    Re: Apple CEO tells car industry "there will be massive change"

    So basically a "We think this is all super cool so we're keeping it under wraps so competitors who we've carefully copied to say it's our design don't throw up a stink till our foot is through the door"

    or

    "We have no idea what we're doing, we're stagnating"

    This is purely perception, still waiting for rock hard information and details that makes me think "Wow that's the future" of Apples products.

    I think they're hinting at a iCar

    If they are going to make a car, they should be well into development by now.

    Perhaps they will just wait for Google to release self driving cars, and sue them on patents they quietly took out and make money that way.

    Had a nexus 7 installed in my dash with custom rom so I can use it as a juke box for over 3 years now.

    Maybe I should've filed a patent lol

    Paid subscribers ? Aren't most people still on the free 3 month trial ? Will soon be one less as once my trial is up it's gone from my pod. Apple music is utter unstable rubbish

    Nah. I think it'll be a ipod in a dash to control lighting, music, entertainment, navigation, etc.

    I would like to be proved wrong and hopefully the engineers at Apple have created a awesome car that can do 250mpg and can sit 4 comfortably or something.

    I consider the apple engineers great. Especially the older ones that made the likes of the old Performa machines and the Powermacs, the G3's and the G4's and even the G5's

    It's about time that Apple claimed that they invented the wheel - and don't forget fire.
