 My wife's 2013 CR-V will read text based text messages to you while driving - but won't show it on the screen unless the car is in park.  That doesn't stop you from picking up the phone and looking / answering directly on the device. I haven't tried but I think the voice recognition texting would still work - so could get a text, have the car read it, the activate Siri to say "Send a Text to _____," and the message.
I agree that far too many people are far too wrapped up in their phones instead of what is happening right in front of them.    Both my cars are manual transmission because when I drive I want to be in active control of the process of what is happening as possible. When I operate a motor vehicle it is something I am engaged in doing not just something that happens.    Maybe what we need is an app that determines when the user is a piss-poor driver and shuts their car...

What if your car rolls over and you are trying to call 911 while pinned by the crushed dashboard between the steering wheel and driver's seat? Since when did Apple deploy (not just invent and discard) technology that made it more difficult to use their products while being so easily defeated that it is simply a waste...
Wait - I thought Apple was doomed since Android has taken over all but a sliver of the mobile phone market - what did I miss?

For example, when I brother took a course to become a...
Is it just me or does that overhead photo look like some sort of cyclotron? kinda like this
I missed this when it happenedmight be the funniest thing in the whole escapade.
 I prefer Parallels - seems to work a bit better especially for graphics - although I am using the latest version of Parallels compared to version 4 on my work machine - not sure if I want to pay for the upgrade myself or try to convince the company to cover it. For work I have a couple apps that are windows only so have to use it - for home I do a lot more in the VM so the extra power helps, even though it is marginal.
