Motor Trend’s Apple Car Mockup (Video)

3:51 PM, Apr. 14th, 2016 · Bryan Chaffin · Cool Stuff Found

Imagining what the Apple Car will look like is a parlor game just about every where. To that end, Motor Trend convened a panel of people from AppleInsider, CNet, Roadshow, Motor Trend itself, and designers from the Art Center College of Design. Their task was to produce a design of what the Apple Car might be. I'll tell you right off the bat there's no way Apple Car will look like this thing—it looks more like a concept car for 2020 designed in 1991. But, the design team put a lot of effort in thinking and designing for the experience, and whether they got it right or wrong, there's some interesting thinking in the project, and some interesting thoughts in this 28 minute discussion by the panel. This project is the subject of the June edition of Motor Trend, which goes on sale now.

Apple Context Machine Podcast

Cellebrite's "Textalyzer" technology can supposedly tell if a smartphone was being used "around the time" of an accident. That sends up red flags for Bryan and Jeff, and they dig deep into the issues. They also talk about new information from The Washington Post that claims the FBI paid a gray hat hacker to help it break into the San Bernardino shooter's iPhone 5c, and some of the many ramifications that might have. For fun, they talk about the new Star Wars Rogue One trailer, and explain Chaffin's Razor.
