    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.

    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.
