Comment: Why do all cars now have a proprietary tablet? (Score 1) 229

Why do all cars now have a proprietary tablet in the dash?
These tablets are so integrated that they cost the car manufacturer big $ and the customer even more.

Why not use a stock android or iPad tablet and create a custom app to talk wirelessly to the car?

I just lost any interest once they used the cheesy flying toilet paper in the wind with Matrix-style print to Cyber-ize stuff. That shit's was ok for kids 20 year ago, not for adults.

The sad thing is I just know they will keep this program on air for its true purpose: Scare the shit out of technophobes so that the government can pass more laws to spy on us.

So we should all use that line of defence:

If speeding, go faster to prevent arrest ==> Win!

If running over somebody, run away and kill witnesses to prevent arrest ==> Win!

If robbing a bank, kill anybody trying to stop you. ==> Win!

If owning a bank, launder money and pay off people to prevent arrest ==> Win!

If [hurting other people for profit], pay government or Kill/harass people to prevent arrest ==> Win!

The wild west is back. Carry a gun people and be ready to use it.

Civilization, as we know it, will end sometime this evening. See SYSNOTE tomorrow for more information.
