I'm in love with Apple smartphones again.

Who saw the 5S in particular as a big ball of meh and no fan of iOS7 - this was worth the wait

Re: iPhone as Remote Car Starter?

Maybe Apple should buy OnStar

I think that ship has sailed with a number of makers coming out with their own various telemetry solutions at this point.

This could have been interesting 5 to 7 years ago.

Re: iPhone as Remote Car Starter?

I believe GM OnStar already has this in cooperation with Apple and their Siri integration and automation solutions. I don't know about proximity start.

Re: Standalone HBO

Ehhh, as a separate pay offer I could see it, but I don't see any exclusive deal here. Warner has made that mistake in the past, and their business practices when diving into digital media channels is to go deep and wide.

Re: No degree? Don't bother to apply.

It doesn't appear to be against the ECOA to discriminate based on educational attainment.

US U6 Unemployment Down To 11.3%

With the news of the U3 unemployment number hitting a seasonally adjusted 5.9% (5.7% unadjusted) I dove into the U6 data. Adjusted U6 is 11.3%, the best it has been since mid-2008.

Re: Russia will remain open economy

Think we can arrange an event in Iraq to take that country's production off the market...like we did in 03?

That would largely hurt ISIS and China. North American and European impact would be negligible. US use of Iraqi oil is right [more]

Ahhhh, didn't know you had the nav system. It isn't the same then. The standard HU is the same in the GM U-bodies of that era, the Corvette and some other models.

Re: Static: Followup

GM can provide a CD to dealers that will re-tune & update the stereo unit software (the only way to program this unit) so I will contact our dealer tomorrow. Since they're a large Corvette dealer, I'm sure they'll be able to fix it. [more]

Re: The Apple Value Proposition Is Damaged
