Traffic data. There's been times where I would totally pay $5 for 30 minutes worth of good data rate to figure out the traffic. Unfortunately, the reason for that was because ATT network is terrible. I would get full-bars but no data would come through. So this partnership does nothing really because the ATT network can't handle the data they have right now.

This is not really an issue when you switch phones, the problem is the other users has set to always to use iMessage. Normally, if a "message" don't reach an iPhone user in a set amount of time, the system defaults to sending it as a text. That's the default behavior of iOS out of the box. Some users have turn it off in Messages settings therefore the iMessage never delivers the message and continues to wait it out.

Why would someone turn off "Send as SMS"?
Few reasons:
1) they're on Verizon or ATT and it's $10 minimum text plan,
2) the limit before it sends as SMS is really short (something around 5 seconds), and you don't want to annoy everyone with multiple iMessage and SMS for the same message
3) the user like knowing if the message actually arrived

I haven't driven one but played around with the interior at the mall. The human/car interface is by far the best one I've used. The multitouch screen is responsive and intuitive. The material quality is top of the line. I totally would buy one if I had the money.

I don't mind ads if they're non-intrusive. Slashdot gives me the option to not have ads, but I let them through anyway. Gizmodo and Yahoo (mobile) have painfully annoying ads. I block them when possible. But in Yahoo (mobile) when I can't block I just go somewhere else. Has anyone look at the recent Google search result page? Fill with so much advertising. I've done a lot more of my searches over at DuckDuckGo. I don't mind a little banner ad or side ads, but don't try to take over my screen or play sound.
