    Watching those videos, I'm amazed how much glossy is this screen.

    I can't wait to find nice matte screen protection. I would buy from a tablet manufacturer and maybe cut one, but since Tablets are all AG already I fear they're not enough.

    I agree with you. It was obviously rushed big time. Only thing I can say looks good is the guy filming the video, other then that, its terrible. Is that round thing supposed to be the home button? It also looks like its built into the czr, like it isnt meant to be taken out.

    I love how you did your car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The outside looks hot as hell. Love the black outs and over all theme. Im still not a fan of how it looks in your car, but it does look better then before.

    This is for opticalfx, why does it matter if it swivels? I think it adds more difficulty to the install. You saw how vegasnate had it before and it didnt look good. One idea is maybe make a mount that when you push the ipad in, it pops out allowing you to rotate the screen, then when done you turn it right side up and click back in? I think it looks OK the way it is.

    PS: you see how the sides of the bezel is like V shaped.... if you fill in the gaps between the ipad and the bezel, I think it will look good.

    Okay, so now that you've had it in your car for a little while, what do you think about it? Does it work okay? Hard to operate? What?

    I toyed around with the accessibility settings and found that you could triple-swipe (three fingers) to zoom the icons a lot larger, then triple tap to shrink them back to size. I think if you triple tapped again, they went back to large size. It was much more suitable with icons larger -at least in the store.

    I personally think it works great for me anyways. I can monitor and record my obdII metrics at the track, play music, videos and so on. I have decent sized fingers and touching icons does not seem to be an issue. As this concept catches on, the apps will get better as we go along I'm sure. My next big hurdle is to integrate the factory HVAC controls into it. Should be fun...

    Whoa whoa whoa... how?!?! I would love you forever.

    Also, anyone intrigued by the various things they've got running using the camera adaptor kit?

    Hold your horses everyone. HP just bought Palm today. That could mean WebOS on the HP slate or a newer slate instead of a heavy Windows 7 OS. If WebOS was on a slate it would eliminate my need for the iPad 3g very quickly. For those that don't know what WebOS is, for starters its amazing, but here's a video:
