It'll be great, so true!
As if X86 emulation worked wonders, ever. See Dec Alpha and Intel Itanium for reference.

The script was utter crap, you don't need to be Isaac Newton or Johannes Kepler to figure out what will happen with another mass like the earth just 400.000 km away.
This alone is so far off of Science that the Fiction Part does not help to justify it.
Daleks, Cybermen, lesbian Lizards and even steampunk clockwork robots are excused for the fiction part, this utter BS is not.
It's actually not that bad. As the head of IT told heise.de it takes less than a week to setup a new mobile and this includes safety and security measures and other things as well as setting up caldav, carddav, smtp and imap accounts.
Munich does not have a policy about using mobile devices, so they have to work with whatever the politicians want at the moment.
My Grandfather went to jail for calling Hitler "größtes Arschloch aller Zeiten" (biggest arsehole of ll times) instead of the then preferred GröFaZ - Größter Feldherr aller Zeiten (biggest general of all times). Luckily he was "kriegswichtig" at Messerschmidt and thus not sent to Stalingrad.
>Google is working on a rival system, but one that doesn't require a phone - all the 'brains' are integrated into the car
And there's the answer. Google is working on it while Apple is delivering.
Microsoft delviers, too, but Ford customers seem somewhat unhappy with the Windows Experience in their cars.
I haven't heard of Intels Tizen for some time, are they still working on it?
QNX looks good to me, especially because car manufacturers have a lot of experience with it.
But providing connectivity to any android phone can be a problem, which android with which extensions and modifications on which hardware? Add Symbian and Windows Phone and we're in trouble.
Me? I don't even own a car anymore :)
Six year old hardware runs fine with Mavericks, I should know, I'm typing on a seven year old Macbook Pro at the moment.
So people with even older hardware are stuck. OTOH, my 8 year old white Macbook runs (or better crawls) Windows 7. The Intel Chipset is limited to 2GB RAM and let's not talk about the graphics card :(
