2012 Volkswagen Beetle: A Perfect Fit

March 20, 2013

2012 Volkswagen Beetle

I've never trusted those shallow dashboard storage bins. Even despite the tacky rubber liners, I feel I'll wind up wearing whatever I put in there. But Apple fans will be pleased to know that the new iPad Mini fits in there snugly. How appropriate that the famously elegant Apple is on the same wavelength as the newly redesigned Beetle.

    Ah the ipad mini, for people who want an iphone that can't fit in their pocket or a laptop with a screen barely bigger than the size of their iphone. I don't get it.

    I'm not really sure what's elegant about the iPad? After a few years of evolution, every phone and tablet on the market is now essentially a giant touchscreen and the manufacturer's logo on the back. Same excrement, different pile.

    Won't it fry from the sun? Personally, if I were buying such an expensive item (not that I ever would), I would keep it away from sun, hard braking, and quick turns.
