Apple vs. Google in the Battle for Your Car
24 July 2014 - Autoblog
Apple and Google are rapidly opening a new front in the on-going tech wars, as the two giants move out of your pocket and into your car. For Apple, it's using its CarPlay system, while Google will offer its newly unveiled Android Auto operating system.
While these two both offer their own distinct aesthetics, the overall function is the same. You'll plug your phone into the car via USB, and then all of the functions from your overpriced slab of aluminum, glass, plastic and silicon will be automagically added to your car's infotainment display.
Bloomberg TV has an excellent video on the two competing systems that explains why these two titans of technology are so keen on expanding into the dashboard, and what it means for you, the average motorist.
