Apple Wants to iPoditize Your Ride

We just spent approximately a year-and-a-half driving to, waiting at, and then driving home from the Apple Store in Manhattan Beach, sent on a wild goose chase by an AppleCare Support tech. Eventually the Geniuses took pity on the poor blogger and made an exception for us. Those new MacBook keyboards are weird. We considered, once again, buying an iPod, but didn't. What does this have to do with cars? Apple wants to see more iPod integration in car audio systems. Ostensibly, safety is one concern but if they get enough market penetration in the auto industry, who would buy any other mp3 player? Potential for monopoly, kids? High.
