Ford is not in the infotainment technology business and should leave that to Apple. Customers should not be forced to deal with needless complexity and poorly designed POS quality Detroit electronics when they are looking to buy an otherwise good automobile.
Sure Apple has a seat in the infotainment, but so does Microsoft. You need to do a little digging before posting. If it isn't too much trouble for you anyway. You can still plug n' play with your iPhone d'bag. Apple infotainment still usable in with MyTouch.
I don't need a stupid screen, just for the sake of POS "technology" to control the heater or airconditioning. Ford is wasting millions$$$$$$$$$$$ on developing this stupid technology, instead of focusing on basic things like transmissions. And I live in Silicon Valley, so my house is crammed with enough tech.
