One thing that jumped out to me -- we were looking for it and we saw it -- record pretax profit in north america.

Ford runs their business using a pretax profit.

The important thing about that is that is the number that the uaw is using.

It sets off the profit-sharing.

Along with that record profit in north america in this final big moneymaking year on the old f series design, the uaw workers will get $808,000 et -- lower-based labor rates and higher profit-sharing for the workers.

Ford is proud of having not needed a bailout.

Stay with us.

I want to bring in our guest host.

The ceo and president of vevo.

The greater detroit-ness.

The dashboard is like a tablet now.

Does that become the norm?

Is the phone going to be the box for the car or will the car be a node on the network without the phone?

I get all of my media to my car or my phone.

Other people run apps in their car.
