    In the end it's your money so buy /don't buy based on your own opinions. However, I find it pretty weird to discredit the 2015 WRX (and Subaru) simply because it's lacking a feature that didn't exist when the car was being developed. It doesn't seem like they even had a choice.
    The technology standards change so quickly that your car stereo will be out if date in two to four years anyway. I don't buy my cars based on the phone I use for this reason.

    I'm certainly not discrediting it. I plan on keeping my next car for a while, and iOS integration would be a high-value feature for me. I'm in a position now where I could easily keep my current car for another year if I wanted to wait until the WRX had CarPlay, presumably 2016.

    Have you ever been involved in the launch of a product? It's not really an "instant-scale-to-infinity" kindof thing.

    I haven't.

    Looking back I realize I am being very harsh towards Apple. I've just had bad experiences with them and don't really like some of their practices.

    However, I still don't think someone looking to get the 2015 WRX should write it off simply because it doesn't have this feature. I'm sure people will and that is their choice obviously. For all we know this is something that might be easily integrated/upgraded in the future anyway.

    I'm leading a software team that's putting together a situational awareness app for the public safety/homeland security sector. I'm actually terrified that it might suddenly catch fire with the people we've demoed for, and we find ourselves suddenly rolling out to government agencies across the country before the thing is properly cooked. We're not staffed for that, yet, and my overlords don't really get such concepts as "stagegates".

    Ray, does your team use Agile development?

    Nice pictures, thanks! I like the red, just not sure if I would get tired of it too soon. The lip spoiler never looks quite right to me in the pictures I have seen though - does it seem out of place when you are looking at it?
    Sorry. It's not my pictures. I found it on Reddit.

    Edit: WTF! This forum pisses me off. Always making me double post REGARDLESS of the browser I use. Hell it does it on Tapatalk from two different phones.

    I don't get it. I thought it was because I had chat running but I turned that off.

    I'm sure others are experiencing the same thing since I see quite a bit of double posting.......

    It's a database issue...Autoguide (the new owners) has acknowledged it and said they "fixed" it, but obviously not. Take a chill pill homie. Double posts are a better way to inflate your post count anyway!
