Andrew Kim continues to knock it out of the park with these reviews of some of Apple’s older products. I actually still have one of these that I can’t bear to part with. One of the most beautiful objects Apple ever designed.

But as with all things electronic, the NVIDIA chip that powers the A3’s multimedia system and the Qualcomm chip that handles Audi Connect will some day go the way of the Nintendo 64, only to be replaced by even quicker and more efficient hardware. Anticipating the inevitable antiquating of such systems— and the resulting need to redesign the hardware architecture that handles those duties, Audi has created its first ever modular system intended to help car design keep pace with ever-evolving cellular and multimedia technology.
