Honestly, I’d rather have “traditional” automakers go the exact opposite direction from being a tech company. Stop trying to put stuff in dashboards and just have a damn data port. Everybody buying a new car likely already has a smartphone, we don’t need a throbbing digital tumor jammed in.
It’s just the new Bitcoin.
The car manufacturers tell them its what jacks up the cost. In case you dont realize it the manufacturers have been playing both sides of this argument all along. They tell the public they want to be eco-conscious and they tell the government that it costs too much to have all these regulations.
