After reading this,
Ford's not giving me the warm fuzzies.
Guess we'll find out soon enough.
How do I get the feeling that the car is turning into a rolling entertainment center?
And from the technical point of view, a poorly designed, outdated rolling entertainment center. I don't care what the car can do, I just want to be able to connect my phone and let my phone do what I want done. The car just needs an amplifier, a good set of speakers and a dumb screen to mirror my phone's screen. No worries about updates or new features or any of that stuff that is out of date…
Because you know that is what people want. People strive have entertainment during the entirety of their waking hours, and I fully expect they will pursue having it through their sleeping hours also.
Yep, and that's why the car needs radar automatic braking :-)
I'm somewhat surprised that no one commented on the part that concerns me - OTA. Granted, the big iron OEMs are doing it to an extent but, for the most part, they're usually only one aspect of the vehicle; i.e. engine, transmission and maybe some body functions. I understand that GM has done some OTA and Tesla has been doing whole car for a while now. Tesla has had their own cyber-security…
