Apple and Volkswagon want to team up to develop an iCar.
Frank Weith, technical strategy manager for Volkswagen of America, told CNET News.com in an interview last week.
Its customers can expect to see some interesting things in this space in the near to long-term future, said Weith.
"I look at the vehicle as being static in a sense where you can create an environment where the vehicle can be connected to your home system. You can download your iTunes. We have a navigation companion on our Web site. You can download your trip, where you're going and, eventually, depending on the access, to download a movie. You can create the environment that you would like to have but make it static, download a week of your Internet," he said.
Imagine all the accidents caused by the "revolutionary" click wheel steering wheel:ROFL: ...
Steve Job's iCar announcment:
A touch screen iPod... an internet communicator.. and a car.
These aren't three sperate products, this is one product... the iCar!
And the ad:
There's never been a car that can do this (shows someone downloading music from iTunes), or this (shows someone watching a movie through the dashboard), or for that matter this (shows someone driving with a click wheel) Then, at the end it shows the word "iCar".
