Charlie Rose has spent the latter half of this week with segments and interviews devoted to Steve Jobs. The video above features discussions with former Google CEO and current Google Chairman Eric Schmidt, Wall Street Journal reporter and friend of Jobs, Walt Mossberg, and Marc Andreessen, a venture capitalist and the creator of the Mosaic web browser and Netscape.
A worthwile interview.
But for me the take-away is simple:
Apple is the current master of human interface engineering. When will an auto manufacturer beg Apple to ask it to re-think and re-design the human interface? The total environment which the person uses to control the auto?
I am sure that Jobs has thought of it and hope that Apple will eventually work on it. It would be nice if it were an American manufacturer (or at least one with heavy American employment.)
From music to navigation to preventative maintenance to diagnostics, Apple could do some exciting things.
