Two of my favorite companies

If there were to be any two companies that could work together, you know who it would be?

BMW and Apple.

Imagine if they designed cars and electronics together. wow.

My favorite company is Smuckers. They invented the combination peanut butter jar with jelly. Absolutely prodigious.

I have to agree with you wholeheaartedly sunchild - I would ache for that. Especially as I am sitting at my beautiful Powerbook G4 typing this.

Apple just know how to design stuff that looks cool, is smart and intuitive to use. They should start an ergonomics and human machine interface consultancy, they would make a lotta money!

Like I said in another forum I think it is evidence that the car was rushed to market a little too early.

I remember a Steve Jobs presentation, I think, earlier in the year, and he mentioned that BMW was working on a new iPod integration solution. E90Fleet talked a bit about it and may know more about upcoming E90 iPod integration.

I think BMW should work together with Krups and Heineken. I'd like a Heineken beertender in the back of my car, Pimpish

Apple and BMW would be very interesting, but I'd have to stop and ask myself if I really wanted a car inundated w/ gadgets..... more electronics, more problems.
