Agreed. That sounds like a great direction to head when I finish teaching middle schoolers.

Hey Tesla, The devil's in the details, right?

One can at least expect as the electric car segment has some reasonable competition, B.S. like this will vanish.

My iPhone has never done similar after an update. If it didiit did, I likely would not have an iPhone in my hand.

Yep. having seen that monster interface on your dashboard, I'm surprised that we've not seen more headlines like " Tesla driver mows down Orlando family of 4 attempting to access his climate control. Says couldn't find fan speed adjust.

Agreed. My family picked up a '21 Chrysler Pacifica last August. The touchscreen is s huge downgrade from theTown and Country we had before it. Climate control is a separate screen from media. The T&C screen was more basic, 1. Focused on entertainment only 2. Was small enough that a driver could place his/her thumb on thedash aside the screen and use their index finger to quickly, and accurately access any buttons an functions. Now, the screen is so large I feel as though I'm playing darts each time I need to poke accurately at a postage stamp -sized button to change a function. Fortunately, th e van has emergency brake assist. It has saved me from nearly rear-ending the car in front of me while I'd focusef all of my attention on navigating the ergonomically-impaired toch screen.

Shouting from the rrooftops, “Legally challenge what you feel is an unfair election “. Should never qualify as hate speech. “ Fight like hell to stop Congress from certifying an election, you have zero proof was unfair, deserves no protection whatsoever.

Slap my forehead. Well...The highest Executive authority in the land created a lie and instructed an irate mob to fight like hell to change US election result (not ever in a kind “pretty-Please mannerjand now did his damnest to ensure this fired up crew had as many weapons as possible as they arrived at the Capitol. (His disdain for weapon checks that day. )Trump then Knowing full well some of them may kill Mike Pence or Nancy Pelosi if they made their way in. Very likely this would not happened had he conceded the clearly evident loss. He may not be legally culpable, but he's morally culpable . It’s this unethical, Lawful Evil, no man’s land where he seems to have made his career. I’ll place some responsibility on the Libs that didn’t see this ahead of time and put some countermeasures in place.

To me , it’s a more direct line of cause-effect deceit than COVID.,in which he denied it’ s existence, mode of transmission, and severity all while 1,000,000 Americans died on his watch

Huh? Please explain how U.S Citizens using force and violence to change our electoral process does not constitute them acting as insurrectionists?
