ah, this reopens the classic "open vs. closed" topic.   car makers now have to choose whether their built-in Nav/Entertainment systems will work  fully with any brand ecosystem - Apple, Google, and others like MS - or are optimized for just one of them or some other proprietary service of that car maker.   (i'm not talking about simple bluetooth calling, i'm mean systems that run apps etc.)   Ford just announced it will switch from its own system - provided by MS and...
 Schmidt embodies the true soul of Google: lie, cheat, and steal - aka "open." the poor top Google engineer that spilled the beans in France - his career is over.
yes, there are a lot of lukewarm or wait and see S5 reactions too. but a lame product like this from Apple would have gotten a scathing reaction instantly. the point of this DED Editorial is that Samsung gets favorable media coverage no matter what thanks to its ad budget.
