So those average unit prices...those are for comparably built machines, right? Oh, nevermind.
Yes. What are the odds that any auto manufacturer will provide any support for the current proprietary nav/music/settings operating systems they already use?  I'd say ZERO.  If, on the other hand, Apple and/or someone else becomes the dominant supplier of such systems, there is a much greater chance that a network of hackers and 3rd party support will develop to help people. 
PLEASE work with VW because their UI is mostly crap (especially if you have the on board navigation). 
"takes much more skill than winning the lottery." As does everything else that isn't a game of chance.
  Maybe you just made a poor choice of words but 'ideas and concepts' are great only to a point.  They don't add real value to the world until they can be delivered in a practical manner.  Execution matters more.  Apple is really damn good at execution; they bring good ideas to life and they do it with great integrity and craftsmanship.  Oracle is basically the opposite.  Their craftsmanship is almost non-existent, except perhaps in their core DB product.  They excel,...
In contrast, Oracle could only get better with Ellison gone.  Their product quality is absolutely terrible.

This seems colossally stupid.
  This is preposterously wrong.  He's literally giving up 75 million dollars (before taxes).  If the currency is of concern he could use the 75m to buy foreign currency or assets.  As for the cap gains issue, unless the tax rate on the 75m would be 100% or more (which it would definitely not), he'd still come out economically ahead if he took the money.  He's literally giving up a significant amount of money, no matter what the tax/currency issues.
