Radio (Pandora or Iheartradio) and navigation. That right there will kill satellite radio. Now that iOS 7.1 features CarPlay, more so. While nothing has been said yet, I'm holding out for an aftermarket head unit that will support CarPlay.

NO IT DOES NOT. Does no one here have a grasp of basic business accounting, and large numbers?
It cost 500K to fill at 747 with fuel.
This devices would be a 1 time 100k cost spread out of 30 years, and be paid for by millins and million of tickets.
The cost of recovery is more then the cost of one of these. Here is a novel idea, what is it was live and we didn't need to recover, faulty, black boxes anymore?
NO, black box recovery is a huge pain in the ass and it's dangerous.
However many planes have a system ALREADY INSTALLED, it's just used for maintenance.
And 100K really isn't much for an item that will be paid off over 30 years and 10's of thousands of passengers.
How many gallons of fuels does a 747 hold?
How much do you think it costs to fill up a 747?
just about 50,000 gallon, at about 6 bucks a gallon.
so 300K to fill it.
I used 747 to illistrate how little you know about airline numbers. Also, I happen to know a lot them.
100K? no, it's not a lot of money when looking at the cost of an airplane.
Ticket increase might have been pennies.
I don't come to your Winblows forums and waste your time, or post on digg. WTF do you (collective version) think it is OK to come to a Linux site and then act like a clueless computer nube?
It's a little more complex than that.
The Auto sales industry has a long long history of abuses, so some regulation came about because of those abuses.
Although, if Tesla will come to your door and pick it up, then this isn't an issue.
"How about the enlightenment principle that government can't simply make up whatever laws it wants"
NO one says that? I mean, the Constitution expressly allows it.
" There is no such thing as liberty if a local dictator can tell you what lightbulb to make or how to sell cars."
That's not true at all.
"Why not force the regular car dealers to also bundle horse buggy whips with all car purchases to protect the horse-buggy-whip establishment."
hahaha, that would be funny..but they would do it is it means maintaining there control. They would be cheap, and you would only need to keep a couple in inventory.
Dictator, you keep using that word..
Ah, but who are the "takers"?
Maybe this will help a little: http://pando.com/2014/02/26/fo...
Is that what happens? Or do you order one online that is made in CA?
