...And it goes through the lightning port. I bought a third party adaptor that fits in behind the standard stereo (in a 2006 VW!) and while I actually have to have two adaptors (iPhone 3G to iPhone 4--something changed in the 30-pin layout or something, and then a standard 30-pin to lightning adaptor on top of that) I can still control my phone from the steering wheel. The sound quality is, of course, very good.
When I borrowed my friend's car, I used my USB/Lightning cable to plug into her Sony deck. That worked fine, too. Charged the phone as well.
So I don't know what he's talking about when it comes to cars. There are a few ways around having to use the headphone jack or bluetooth.

These companies already have your money, so updating a device that's already been sold is a needless expense. There's also a good argument to be made that updating a device hurts future sales. If your phone isn't updated, it will start to feel old, so you're more likely to buy a new phone sooner.
Yes. I have a high-end preamp-processor, updatable over the net. Plenty of bugs. Did they ever fix them, much less add new features? No. Did they release a new model? Yes. I have a high-end camera. Updatable over the net. Plenty of bugs. Did they ever fix them, much less add new features? No. Did they release a new model? Yes. I have a high-end radio transceiver. Updatable over the net. Plenty of bugs. Did they ever fix them, much less add new features? No. Did they release a new model? Yes. And so on.
The whole "we can update your device" bit is a scam (and often, so is the "we can update your software" bit.) The only way a corporation is likely to actually update hardware responsibly is if legislation forces them to. And good luck trying to get THAT in place when corporations outright buy the decisions of the legislatures.
The fourth amendment actually uses the word 'people' and not 'citizens'. In cases where the lawmakers or framers intended the rights to be extended only to 'citizens', they make that explicit (i.e., for voting).
So, no. Your assertion probably isn't true. But I'm not a lawyer--or even an American!--so my cursory search around the internet isn't worth much. Then again, it appears to be more than you've done...
At the VERY least, Google ought to commit to releasing unsupported "best-effort" automated builds of binary kernel modules for proprietary hardware for at least 5 years. It's something that would take only a tiny bit of effort (or arm twisting) by Google, and would go a LONG way towards neutralizing the misery caused by Linux's lack of a stable kernel ABI by doing the ONE THING for us that we genuinely can't do ourselves -- build proprietary drivers from source so they'll work with a new kernel.
Alternatively, Google should come up with a slightly better alternative to loadable kernel modules that enables some reasonable degree of compatibility between kernel builds. Or just fork Android's kernel outright, and commit to keeping the kernel ABI stable (absent some really, REALLY good, compelling, and urgent reason) from release to release.
The really fucked up thing is, ten years ago you could do a guerrilla upgrade of a Windows Mobile 5 phone to Windows Mobile 6 by doing little more than copying
I know, right? I keep telling them those are MY Pokemon, but the little bastards are always there first...
Well, you just failed the interview. Two entire sentences without grammatical or spelling errors?
No way, dude.
LMOL yes moron Uber competes with taxi service.
Sure. Any transport method that is used instead of another is competition. Walking, bicycles, private cars, motorcycles, skateboards, Segways, busses, subways, jitneys, hansoms, taxis, limos, Uber... all competitors that reduce opportunity for the others.
Anyway, the story is that Uber's earnings will be garnished to subsidize taxis. I wonder, would people approve if their bicycles and cars and so on were taxed specifically to subsidize taxis and/or other transportation methods?
It's fascinating to see the "this business has a right to exist, workable business model or not" attitude arise in a new space, and to watch the politicians be bought and sold accordingly.
If we all had smart-phones 100 years ago, today's taxi regulations (and the various boards enforcing them) would not have been created. Which means, it is time for them to be abolished.
I am so with you. No more smart-phones! BURN THEM! BURN THEM ALL!
Soon, teenagers might begin speaking to one another again; dress in ways that attract the eye; undertake outdoor activities other than "find that Pokemon"; and play games that develop co-ordination of more than their hands, develop whole-body muscle-tone, maybe even ask each other for dates with, you know, actual speech and eye contact. Maybe even kiss!
Nah, never happen. Bring on the VR hoods and nerve stimulators. Soon, "my teenager's in the cloud" will be a common parent's lament, and the most common teenage problem will be bedsores.
You bought a Mac Pro (Darth's trashcan) as your first Mac because you wanted to try one?
You are definitely holding something wrong.
What? What can't you hook to a Mac? Film Scanners, CT scanners, Drones, printers, cameras. All hook to my various Mac boxes. Possibly some POS hardware dingy who's software was last coded when Visual Basic 4 was hot but not much else.
I run the full Adobe suite, Maya, Modo, various Autodesk programs (sigh) on the Mac. I can finally hook to the network at work. Recently, I've dropped Parallels because I just don't need it anymore (and Parallels' business model pisses me off).
Don't know about your world, but mine connects just fine.
I don't know where these figures are coming from but here in SoCal, we've had a pretty mild summer. Not nearly as hot as some years gone by.
For the millionth time - weather is not climate.
If the entire world was Southern California your observation might be relevant to the discussion. OTOH if the entire world was Southern California, global warming would be the least of our problems.
"Ymmm. Hmm. Oh. Hey, Steve - remember that thing we talked about the other day? Umm, the uh, widget interface that looks like a squiggle with projectile vomiting? Well, uhm, uh, wait, no it was the one that looked like Justin Beiber. Or something like that.
Well, anyway, what I wanted to say it that, I think and Mary thinks to and, ummm."
Spare me. I'll take less emotional baggage any day. I'm justl getting to the point where emojis don't give me the shakes.
