In-car infotainment systems are nothing new. Over the last decade we’ve seen in-dash systems that control navigation, the stereo, phone calls and other functions trickle down from luxury models to cars for the masses. They’re pretty widespread now, but they have one thing in common: They suck. Can Apple do better?
As much fun as test driving pre-production cars may seem, cruising around a course meant to see how hard a car can take a beating usually means a few hits to the human inside as well.

Luxury car service, Uber, is awesome. It makes getting around a crazy city a civil experience that can be done in dependable yet stylish comfort. It’s meant to usurp the cab industry, but now Uber has launched UberTAXI for Australia: a service that connects you with cabs nearby. What?
