The Critical 'I'

Read. React. Repeat.

How many bells and whistles can a car have? BMW is betting more is better, as it unleashes a jetplane-like cockpit in it's newest luxury models. I liked the test drive here, as it displayed how counter-intuitive alot of tech advances are when applied. Don't these companies devote any time to field-testing these things on average people?

I also wonder if the day will come when a driver would need to be certified and trained to properly use a specialized navigation system. A driver's license test would change from parallel parking tests to knowing how to track your tachometer.
