Siri take me home!Siri visits your car's infotainment system
Every year, Apple hosts their World Wide Developer’s conference where the company shows off some of the software their programmers have been hard at work on. Last year, they teased their new iOS integration with car infotainment systems. Since then, the company has mostly kept to themselves about the development of the project. But now, after many months, a developer by the name of Steven Troughton-Smith has released a short video showing some of the capabilities and the user interface of the product. Recently, during the Detroit Autoshow, Google announced their Open Automotive Alliance which plans to incorporate key features of Android into a select number of automaker’s infotainment systems, an answer to Apple’s foray into car infotainment systems. Perhaps these are the first signs of a (hopefully) innovative turf war for car infotainment supremacy.

In the meantime, here’s a video showing Apple’s iOS integration in cars.
