Good news for the owners of Volvo, Ferrari and Mercedes, the Apple iOS is finally coming to their cars. We first heard about the concept of this automotive interface a year back in June last year and a lot of time has passed since then and it still isn’t ready even though the relevant code is present in the recent iOS 7 builds.
The Financial Times might have some good news for us and the wait might finally be coming to an end soon enough because it is most likely that Apple will unveil the formal car integration deals with Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo as soon as next week. We have got no more details on this as yet but there has been a rumored announcement which indicates that the automakers could name compatible models and possibly show the technology in action soon enough.
It will not be right to call this system as Apple’s first in-car operating system like the Financial Times have done because it still is dependent on the iPhone or the iPad to function.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
