Hmmm, so now instead of locating and touching at least three different icons to make my smartphone do something, I can locate and touch all those icons on my dashboard, pausing before each to consider which is the one I want. Sorry, but if I so much as change the radio station without using one of the presets, I find myself too distracted, even if it's "only" for two seconds (and that's too long). There must be something wrong with me. Whether that something is that I multitask less well than most drivers; or that I'm more honest with myself than most about my level of distraction; or that I just fail to grasp the necessity of using apps while I'm driving... I may never know. I have never been to Germany, but I am told that folks there take driving very seriously - which is great when you have roads like the Autobahn. Anyone know how well they accept these IVI systems there?

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
