Comment Still can't buy one (Score 3) 118

Still can't buy one ( in the US ) = still don't care. They told us we would be able to buy them years ago. I'm glad they're still working on it. The fact that soe exist in the wild means I know it's not vaporware. At the same time, I'm starting to think I'll never be able to buy one.

Android auto is currently only supported by certain handsets, but they won't tell you which ones. They only say that it requires a handset running android 5 or greater, but that isn't the only requirement. Furthermore, certain handsets have certain functionality crippled. I'm an early adopter, and I enjoy the pioneer headunit as a great stereo, but I am still unable to run the android auto part.

That's nice. I want to be able to carry all of my files with me everywhere. I want the same development environment everywhere and to only configure it once. I want those configuration changes to follow me everywhere. I want to be able to answer the phone on my desktop. I want to have my call and messaging history accessible no matter what device I'm using. I don't want to buy 4 computers (phone, laptop, tablet, desktop) I want to buy 1. Displays, touchscreens, and peripherals should be dummy passthrough devices. I want all of this to be instant (which means no cloud storage until we can make that much much faster). You might not want convergence, but I would kill for it.
