    Look, I have an iCar to go with my iPhone iPad and iPod.

    They all cost 5x more than a normal phone/pc/car and do half as much but they're made by Apple and have an awesome logo.

    Will I have to learn to drive it again every time they do a software update on it?

    It'll probably be impossible to figure out how to turn off the lights, radio, AC, etc. Once you turn them on.

    This gives them 5 more years to get Apple Maps working properly.

    They will change their charging cord setup a couple of years into production so you have to buy a new one if you buy a new Icar.

    The batteries will be built into the car so you won't be able to replace them yourself.

    I have an iPod touch 4th gen. I don't use it often, but it's great for long form radio shows that you have downloaded, it will save your place.


    I use iTunes for music and I use Safari browser on occasion when Chrome acts up, but that's it.

    I would like to switch to Mac because I do a lot with photographs. But they are so danged expensive compared to an almost equal windows machine it just doesn't make since. It's just a hobby.
