    Interesting. I can see this making the use more simple during driving. Did you ever use one like that, is it possible to navigate the screen without looking like you can with conventional buttons?

    I agree. In the article they also state that they want to make the input more direct and intuitive for the new system that's coming. Controls will be closer and this should reduce unwanted rotation force on the steering wheel when using the screen.
    I do really dislike the missing haptic feedback on the touchscreens.

    Do you think parking is more dangerous than switching lanes on the highway for example? I have no idea about that

    Wow, spending time on learning one thing that you then can not use sounds extremely frustrating. Although I never really regret learning something new , it can be hard just deciding what I want to learn and not to learn. This sometimes leads to the feeling on missing out on other subjects I am interested in. I don't think that you have wasted your time with learning programming. Maybe It was the way for you to discover about woodworking, which for me personally sounds much more fulfilling.
    Do you think your experience from learning the programming languages will still somehow come in handy in the future for you?

    Well I can get behind why you have some regrets for this. These "what if" scenarios are harsh to think about for me, since I will immediately dream about all the opportunities that could have come from that decision. That's why I like your thinking that it might even have saved you some bigger troubles today, when you decided not to invest in bitcoin back then.
    There is no way I could look back like Hanyecz and be so cool about it. What a mindset.

    That is some truly helpful advice! The way you reflect back could help me to get to better terms with other things my "past me" has done. I hope you recovered from the depression and are healthy...

    For example:
    I remember that I had a really short fuse when I was in highschool. One day, I was having a bad day anyway, and a friend of mine made a comment about my appearance. I slapped him. I don't know why I thought it was a good idea. We then got into a fight which ended our friendship. I didn't apologize and haven't had the chance to do so since.

    I am still thinking what the friend feels about the situation today and I am ashamed that this happened.
