From our sister site Engadget comes the news that BMW will be the first auto-maker to join forces with the iPod phenomenon. Every person I see on the street, from teenagers to businesswomen, are wearing the signature earphones disappearing into a pocket or bag. It almost makes sense that the ultimate driving machine would want seamless iPod integration as this breaking news story explains. We just hope the system is a little simpler than the much complained about iDrive interface. Wait a second. iPod, iDrive…could this all be planned from the very beginning?
