    BMW to start charging annual fee to use Apple CarPlay

    https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/b...ghway-robbery/

    "Instead of a one-time, $300 fee, starting on 2019 models BMW will charge $80 annually for the privilege of accessing Apple's otherwise totally free CarPlay service. You do get the first year free, much like your friendly neighborhood dealer of another sort, but after that it's pay up or have your Lightning cable metaphorically snipped."

    Was this part of what happened with the Net Neutrality deal, or is this unrelated?
