    Well...it's not an exact copy of the Dashboard widget. Before Dashboard, there were widgets in a program called Konfabulator that looked very similar, as well as web page layouts and weather segments on news programs on television that featured very similar graphics. There were even versions of similar graphics printed in things called newspapers, but that might be before your time.

    Nissan's also a bit fond of using Apple products, I think they've used a few iPods and I remember seeing an G5/Intel iMac in one of their commericals. I don't see the what's big deal though.

    I've seen a few with iBooks and iMacs as well. A lot of car companies like using Apple products. Their elegance only helps the cause;)
