    Is the World Ready for an Apple iCar?

    Fresh from a series of conquests, Apple might now be planning to colonize automobiles. According to German financial magazine Capital, Apple CEO Steve Jobs has met with Volkswagen CEO Martin Winterkorn to talk about a car that would showcase Apple's technology and products.

    Hans-Gerd Bode, a spokesperson for Volkswagen, said that the meeting took place in California and that lots of ideas were discussed, but noted that the project is still in the early stages. Apple has declined comment, but observers are already calling the new project the iCar.

    ...ideas as integrating Apple's multitouch interfaces, new approaches to GPS, a more elaborate media experience, and other efforts that could remake a car into what would become, essentially, "a moving living room."

    Why pick a car maker with such a dismal reputation for quality? I like my iMac and my iPod, but if they want me to buy an iCar it better be 100% electric. Or a PHEV with a 100-mile all-electric range.
