 Well, there's no accounting for taste!Sorry, I should have put a ;-) on my post. Not because I'm joking, just because I didn't mean to offend ;-)As a designer, I'm pretty picky on design concepts. The think I hate most about it is I can see it really is *not* a feasible design. As others have pointed out, it would be unusable. Even if the bangle like design were feasible, stylistically it would be rejected by most users. Apple, it they do an iWatch, will produce something...
 If the released product looks anything like these renderings, I'd be surprised [and would never buy one.]I pray Apple has better taste than you . . .  think they have. Seriously the design concept looks appropriate for children.
 It's good to know we have a company that understands us. God bless "Team America!" "F- Yeah!" 
 Funny how all this stuff shakes out. Who has precedence?Every skier, upon finishing, immediately removes at least one ski and holds it upright. The logo of the ski company is always right at the level of the skier's face, for all the world to see. Must annoy any company that has sponsored the event.
 Indeed.In London long established restaurants with the word "Olympic" in the name were forced to change their name during the summer olympics.I believe they also will not even consider an olympic venue unless they are exempt from any taxes by the various governing taxing authorities (I may be mistaken—but it's either the olympics or the Wold Cup—likely both.)
The solution is simple. Samsung should provide stickers in the gift bag that athletes can use to cover the Apple logo.       I suggest they use these:  
 Who said it was an infotainment device? That's as short sighted as calling an iPhone "just a phone."The point is, if you make the full data stream and some controls available, people will step up with interesting ideas.Beyond nav, music and phone calls, why not have these very tasks integrate with the hardware as you would like?•Control the radio with your device.•Displaly extra info on what's playing on the radio•Phone calls through audio system (obviously)But why stop...
 It's funny. In many ways the auto industry are the original UX-centered companies that Apple emulated to become who they are. On the other hand, the auto industry is the ultimate moribund, big, dumb, incumbent entity that can't evolve or change with the times. There's no real reason a feed of data and some control over minor systems (radio, mirrors, seat position, a display, etc.) need to be coupled to the longer term development. But I'm sure the car companies can't see...
 Actually I was referring to OBD2  and CAN here: The auto industry didn't implement OBD2 because they wanted to, it was pretty much mandated for EPA compliance consumer rights. The CAN bus was a handy means to that end, but it doesn't cover all the bases and it isn't a free and open standard (although the terms may be reasonable.) Something along this line is where they should go, but I doubt they have been designed with the kind of features Apple et al might want or need....
Apple works well with the internet, ethernet, Wifi, the web, servers, etc. etc. They don't control those products from top to bottom. They want to control their part of the overall  widget. Far from the "if cars worked like computers" meme, the auto industry is the control freak. Hell, it was like pulling teeth to get access to trouble codes! (and it's still less than ideal.) When they advance into the 21st century and agree on an open standard interface with auto system,...
