Yea like you'd ever admit that there's another platform worth developing for that isn't Apple's.

It's clear that General Motors, Hyundai, and Honda haven't paid enough attention to Ford's blunder in aligning itself with the train wreck of Microsoft and their Ford Sync "technology".  

 

With Android's massive fragmentation what could go wrong?

Could this be Google attempting to refine it's maps accuracy?

IMO a couple of posters are commenting by reflex. Android. Bad. Bad Google. Evil.[/quote]

... exactly what it is. Google is evil.

Yes.  But this type of BS happens all the time.  Google has stolen peoples wifi login in the past for 'research purposes'.  You can't trust these A-holes

Any car with built in GPS gathers and saves that very same info which your insurance company can easily retrieve. My friend does freelance repos and once he has the order active he gets the GPS location of the car and when he's ready to go pick it up the banking company issues a kill order to the car and the driver is unable to start the car.

Apple isn't part of the OHA so it leads me to believe that they wouldn't be part of the OAA.

LOL. That goes without sayin'.

That by itself wouldn't prevent iOS devices from connecting to whatever system the OEM develops.

post #56 of 128

I completely agree with those other posters here who've stated this announcement will influence which car brand NOT to purchase. I don't want anything to do with Google, it's services, or Android, and now they're trying to shove Android down my throat in my car?! F*CK THAT! Android, along with all of Google's "services", are nothing more than data harvesting, mining, and tracking mediums for them to expand not only their true business (marketing), but also to help the NSA with whatever nefarious deeds they're scheming now.

 

Was looking at Honda for my next car, now going to either stick with Mazda or go with Toyota! Honda, you've disappointed me with your incredible lack of engineering judgement!

It's definitely going to be interesting to see how this plays out. Will someone that buys an Audi and owns a iPhone then switch to a Android device so it'll work with his/her car?

Yes I would've noticed in a heart beat, and would be selling the rust bucket in a New York minute. I don't want ANY company that's as vile as Google to be in my car, or anywhere else for that matter!

android sucks, but not as much as the people who come here to defend it.

I've seen several Apple commenters claim Google is intentionally feeding the NSA. Did I miss a news release to that effect? If so perhaps you could take just a moment and link it. I remember a recent one having to do with Apple devices and the NSA and even that didn't claim it was intentional. Perhaps you've confused things.

How are you basing your determination of 1st tier and 2nd tier?

As unstable as Android is, I'm not sure this is a wise move. Could you imagine if the Android stuff stopped working? You are stuck supporting it yourself. Eeek! My car won't start because of Malware.

Sure, it's called the PRISM document from Edward Snowden, I'm sure you can "Google it" for yourself.

Perhaps you have other information you could link to.

It isn't open at all. Google is not playing the open game any more. They are even less shy about it now. The problem is Android is constantly in beta. It's hacked to death etc...

post #65 of 128

I think this is ultimately good for Apple, whether this shakes out to an open or Apple-proprietary standard.

I means that auto makers are giving up the ghost on rolling their own in-car systems. Better for everyone. Do what you do best and let the experts do the rest.

Ah, you know just where to look then. This should be an easy request, especially since you wouldn't want to be seen as making it up: Can you quote the part where Google is said to be feeding data to the NSA for the rest of us? The news media apparently hasn't discovered it yet.

They will track users, of course, and offer audio ads if you are in range of a specific vendor.

I think you can infer NSA is looking at Android because it's "open". As for Apple devices, if hackers can jailbreak an iPhone, you can be damn sure the NSA can jailbreak one.

And Apple stores are filled with people that have rock steady stable devices and just stopped by to say hi. The constant reboots of Android 2.3 are a thing of the past, it's gotten increasingly stable since 4.0.

Have we forgotten that Apple is/was also part of the PRISM program. And for what it's worth Apple also has a targeted advertising service iAd, for which it also collects user information.

Thanks for confirming that you have no evidence whatsoever.

 

Tell me, how many people develop for Windows Mobile? BlackBerry? Tizen? How many users? How about platform satisfaction reports? Third party revenue stats? Now what on Earth makes you think that anyone’s going to waste their time building for them?

 

Come off it.

I don't even know what that means since every person I know who had an Android device ultimately ended up going back to iOS. It doesn't make sense to put a budget system in a car. On a phone people can get buy with it because they aren't spending thousands of dollars on it.

You're absolutely right, but that's not the point I'm making. I'm saying that you'd never ever admit that any platform would be worth developing for whether it's a existing one or one yet to be made. Now there's nothing wrong with that just don't like you ever would.

And how many Androids are on 4.x?

I knew it: except I predicted, or joked, that it would be called Open Dashboard Alliance. I predict that "open" will mean: OBEY GOOGLE. At least Apple isn't pretending to be "open".
