If Apple ends up producing an autonomous vehicle, will it have Windows?
Yes, but they'll break really easily. The vehicle will still drive fine though.
You're joking, right?
Anybody remember the Aptera? It was to have been a high-performance 3-wheeled EV. The company was formed about a decade ago and went bankrupt about 5 or 6 years ago. One of the big issues with the design was that the windows didn't open. So the question arose: What if you are stopped by a cop? You are told to open your window. You can't.
Also, people want to be able to see out the car. Cameras and video screens are not the same. Might be okay for the rear-view mirror to be a video screen, but not side and front view. So, I don't know if you are joking, but yes, all cars will have windows. And the side windows need to open.
So is the question whether it will have windows or what version of MS windows will it use?
Or maybe Apple will have evOS ready for the launch? Or could it be we're talking about glass windows? I'm just not sure where to go with this............
It will auto-PARC
Yes, note that the word "Windows" is capitalized.
Yes, and they will turn blue during crash...
Nah, they'll follow Tesla's example and use Linux.
One thing is certain - swipe to start.
Ah, yes. Well, at least I figured there was a joke in there somewhere. And to be fair to me, Aptera really did stumble by having (lower case) windows that didn't open, so that was on my mind. Back then, when really nobody was building EVs other than backyard DIYers, I was so desperately wishing that Aptera would succeed, and the business with their windows was a serious issue. But, damn, I think just about the only thing Tesla could possibly do to make me cancel my reservation would be to run Windows in it.[/QUOTE]
I don't think Apple will make a car. But if it did, it would have windows and chrome but not Windows and Chrome.
And being open-source, Windows would be extraneous.
Chrome is an aftermarket option, whether it has Windows or not.
Makes me think of this billboard ad from a BMW dealer in South Africa back in the 90's:
EinSV, Great comment, I like it!
If Ford can run Explorer I'm sure Apple can have Chrome;-)
And then there are some people who just care about the way it looks and not about how well it functions:
The Apple car will not have Windows, instead it will have iView transparent panels. You can even lower them if you buy the iCrank option from the iAuto store. Also proprietary iTires will be mounted on non standard size iRims. You can only inflate them at designated iPumps due to the non standard iValves. Rims can only be mounted / serviced at the iMaintenance depot with proprietary iTools and iWrenches.
Old old old joke
The title of this thread reminds me of the time I walked into an Apple store and asked if they had any oranges. I had so much fun with that I had to walk across the mall to the Windows store and asked if they had any doors.
Needless to say my kids were embarrassed, and perhaps rightfully so.
Don't you mean "you can only iNflate them..." ?
But how do you wipe a Window's memory?
