23 year old Me and 34 year old Me still have a lot in common.
Just found some windows 95 level Calender software I used to use to journal when I first moved to LA. Reading through it is a trip. I still have a lot of the issues I wrote about… and also the interests… Here are the last two lines of a paragraph of pretty heavy emotional shit.
"Also ordered a butterfly knife and a practice knife. Looking into Aikido"
Almost 100% sure I lost my uniform wares watch. One more place to check and then I’ll drop to my knees and scream “NOOOOOOOOOO” towards the heavens.
Do you think Apple is providing the touch screens, wiring harnesses, etc. for CarPlay? I can't imagine they'd leave something like the touch experience or screen resolution to a car manufacturer. I have a hard time believing this is just a software solution.
It’s a good question — it seems that no, they’re not. As you can see here, companies like Mercedes are not only leaving these screens open for use with their own systems, they’re also leaving them open to Android in the future (though details aren’t clear there).
All of this sort of led to my reference to the Rokr. We’ll see how well Apple likes playing on other’s hardware. They do it a bit with the Apple TV, but as you note, this is someone else’s touchscreen.
This reminds me of the first Apple/Motorola phone. I hope Apple ditches this and winds up releasing a whole car.
I get a lot of knowing nods from homeless dudes.
