Here's an interesting anecdote from Steve Jobs' return to Apple in the late nineties. He uses BMW automobiles as a brand example to strive for.

He repeated the news fodder that Michael Dell had been asked recently what he would do if he was running Apple Computer. (At the time, Dell was the ultimate success story in the PC industry.) Dell said that he would liquidate the company and return the cash to shareholders.

A few gasps, a few jeers and some general murmuring in the audience. But I don’t think they expected what he said next.

But we’re lucky, because Apple has a purpose. Unlike anyone in the industry, people want us to make products that they love. In fact, more than love. Our job is to make products that people lust for. That’s what Apple is meant to be.

What’s BMW’s market share of the auto market? Does anyone know? Well, it’s less than 2%, but no one cares. Why? Because either you drive a BMW or you stare at the new one driving by. If we do our job, we’ll make products that people lust after, and no one will care about our market share.

Apple is a start-up. Granted, it’s a startup with $6B in revenue, but that can and will go in an instant. If you are here for a cushy 9-to-5 job, then that’s OK, but you should go. We’re going to make sure everyone has stock options, and that they are oriented towards the long term. If you need a big salary and bonus, then that’s OK, but you should go. This isn’t going to be that place. There are plenty of companies like that in the Valley. This is going to be hard work, possibly the hardest you’ve ever done. But if we do it right, it’s going to be worth it.
He then clicked through to a giant bullseye overlayed on Michael Dell’s face.

The title is misleading. I know it came from Bimmerpost. BMW is not the only car maker with idevice integration. It's a bit of a stretch to relate the man with BMW. Especially posting a pic of him on a BMW motorcycle. The last car he owned was the MB SL.
