Will I replace the system in @Linuxcar with an iPad?

Posted by on Wednesday, 7 April, 2010
Some friends have been asking me if the iPad could eventually replace my custom made Linux multimedia car system. I reckon that the screen is nice an all, but can the iPad ... - Take Skype phone calls - Automatically pause live radio (not just mute) when a call comes in - Update the twitter account @linuxcar with what ever it is doing - Bring up my current location on Google maps - Update my current location on the web - Allow free WiFi in the car - Allow any other web devices in the neighborhood to control the multimedia - Allow for a remote system to use the web interface ... all at the same time? No? Well, there is your answer. Now, an Android based system like this might do it...
