    If Apple is willing to present the likes of foul lyrics in rap music, soft core porn and violence as entertainment, I'm ready to "move away" to some other tech company's products and services. Very disappointing, Tim. This is just for the money, isn't it? God help us all.

    Human driven cars are a mature product category but self driving cars aren't even on the market yet. If we are freed of the need for a driver's seat and passenger seat facing forward, then a minivan sized car can perhaps become a SoHo that can transform into a bedroom or a family rec room. There is so much room to explore and innovate the inside of the car to allow people to use their time in the car.
