Interesting video comparing Android Auto with Apple's CarPlay (via Daring Fireball).

The takeaway for me is clear - CarPlay looks like a mess, with iOS 6 stuff intermingled with vague iOS 7+ designs, but without any clear vision tying it all together. In short, it's ugly as sin. Android Auto looks fantastic and coherent - but it seems far too distracting to be safe to use while driving. It looks too good to be in a car in which it is very easy to either kill yourself or someone else - or both.

Interesting, though, that car makers are simply putting both systems in their cars.
