The Detroit Auto Show is happening these days. For my taste no real big high-lights. I heard today in the businessnews that in general the auto industry is hurting. Only Toyota is doing well and tries to increase their sales in the USA by 10% in 2005. This might be a reason why no real wacky concept cars or announcements where made.
The Ferrari Superamerica is of course very nice. It is a 12-cylinder convertible version of the Pininfarina-designed 575M Maranello coupe wtih a $305,000 price tag. Its for Bill Gates and guys like him.
MSNBC has a nice coverage and slide-show from the car show. Funny enough the MSNBC The best of the best from Detroit article starts out with which companies announced iPodsupport for their cars: Daimler Chrysler (already seen at CES) and also Ferrari announced iPod support.

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.
