Bug you basically put one of my sketches into words!!!
I'm gonna have to put my drawing to a scanner. However, it is more of a hardware concept.
I left my sketch on my desk, however, it is a piece of hardware like a dock with an OS that would adapt to the hardware interacting with it. Essentially an old powerbook duo dock and fusion brain like device that could extend the abilities of limited device connected to it (like an iphone/ipad).
@ my story
I came to mp3car looking for a way to connect my iphone to my speakers aka parot or such. However, before owning an iphone I had a come up with the idea of being to port my data between house - car - computer. Of course, I had no idea of what a carpc was or even the idea of being on wifi to transfer the data. haha, I was thinking that data would move by memory stick. However, the data would include (now I know) OBD data, your electronic seat position, itunes, and phone data.
Data being all powerful.
@ current FE options
Being a newbie to community I soon realized that many front ends are going to be outdated by the power of the smart phone. I tried several and chose the one that I felt fit my needs with the least amount of entry effort.
What I mean by "outdated" is that the various apps are too limited in scope. CF with their recent campaign is an interesting try but I wonder if the base core code can really broaden it's scope to adapt to the smart phone invasion.
But to be honest, many of the current FEs could possibly go connected but that would probably mean a re-write.
We're gonna need a source code that has scalable, expandable and connectible to various devices from nike shoes to main frames :) well, you know what I mean ;)
Could you go into more detail about what kinds of information you want to move between location and devices?
