Actually this isn't a joke. This is happening. This isn't the car I was running at the time but yes it's something we're working on, really.

So, if there is an app for I-phone in the works, can we assume that the hotwire is being programmed to work with MAC as well?

Guys that is a trade show car, hence the full sized tires, incorrect wiring,etc. It's meant to look pretty. Nice catch on the wires though.

not buying it. The hotwire takes a mini-USB connection and that is a full size USB connector.

We are looking at the Droid as well. The Iphone was the clear choice for a starting point because of the app support.

We do plan to offer other "smart phone" choices.
