"The German news site heise.de writes [German language only] that soon you can interact with your iPhone from the built-in touchscreen of their cars. The idea is shown in this youtube.com video."
The press release speaks of the advantages (in sales-speak) of integrating a large portrait-oriented touch screen with an advanced voice control system like Siri.
This comes at a time, where Switzerland is contemplating of moving against large built-in screens in cars, as they are distracting for the driver http://readzer.com/."

Do I own a Volvo? No.
Do I own a car? Yes.
Would I consider replacing it with a Volvo? No.
Might the answer to the last question be different if Volvo still made something akin to the OV4 (the only car that even managed to finish the 1928 Moscow-Leningrad-Moscow rally without penalty)? Quite possibly.
Do I race cars? No. But I do place tangible extra value on a car that can withstand such gruelling treatment so admirably (if it can do that, chances are it will never have any problem with anything I might need to do with it)
