my mom got a newish car after decades of driving used poo poo off lots and while the backup camera IS very nice, the massive irritating infotainment screen drives me batshit every single time im in it. at least i can power it down so it's just a black screen. the death of physical controls is a nightmare

i had a convo a few weeks ago with some people about, weirdly i know, at what age we learned our ssns. most of them didn't learn them until their late teens/early 20s for college and work stuff.

i learned mine because we had to fill in our ssn with those bubbles on standardized tests, so i had mine memorized by around uhhh 3rd grade, and thought that was the normal age for it? but i was the only one in my 30s; everyone else was in their early 20s or early 50s and had no idea what i was talking about :(

as a point of comparison, im in my mid 30s and we didn't use SSNs at all in school

elementary went by an assigned number per class (i remember being #14), then in jr and high we had school-assigned student ID numbers

bikes are cheating. they didnt go efi until, what, early 2000s?

my newest car is a '69, though i do have an efi motorcycle (that ive never ridden)

i am usually staggered when someone refers to their 2005 or w/e car as "old" cause thats newer than anyone in my family has (a couple aunts and uncles prob have something newer by now tho). this is the first time ive seen someone do that but like a decade newer, wtc

these were the state-wide benchmarking tests, so class-level numbers or school ID numbers would have been kind of useless

hmm yeah i dont remember what the STAR tests used for identification. pretty sure i didnt have my ssn memorized until college applications, so it must have been something else

Is that a challenge?
My car's from 2008 which is recent enough that I'm offended when someone calls it "old", but it's French so it's aging in dog years.

It does have an aux-in adapter that emulates a CD changer and lets you control an OG iPod with the factory stereo, which is quaint in 2022. Also clearly an afterthought because factory fitment is velcro'd to the inside of the glovebox.

thatís why you drive a car with a good safety rating so even if the tires blow out youíre sweet. it means you donít have to spend money on maintenance because you canít die

Shiiit. the DRZ is a 2007 and has the little one barrel wheezer. They basically ran out the shot clock on carbs as long as they could. New stuff (i'd say for street bikes 08+, offroad/dirt type things 2010-2012ish) is all EFI yeah.

the more impressive one is the fz1. it's a 2002 but it has a carb for each cylinder and i do not ever want to have to sync them.

Since this is like the third time car touchscreens have come up I just want to say that my 2021 Mazda cx-30 has a non touch screen that you control with a few knobs and switches and a giant "command knob"

Reviewers can poo poo on it all they want, but I love it and can do almost any setting from muscle memory without my eyes leaving the road or with quick glances at the screen for multiple steps, but it is way less distracting.

hell yeah!!! I borrowed a Hyundai Genesis for a bit (the owner's daughter totaled my wife's parked car lmao) and it had an insanely good knob: up,down,left,right and also cw/ccw rotate, center-click (and maybe pull? I can't remember) and every single aspect of it felt great (middle click wasn't awkward/didn't sometimes also click a direction)

i wish i could get a law passed that every touch screen was also required to support a knob peripheral exactly like this one

the way they did the volume control on that is they made it a touchscreen element and then epoxied a dial with a capacitive thing onto the screen

had one as a rental for a bit, and it is amazing how cheap it looks in parts. that extremely flimsy plastic ring notably.

it is a good idea though, ultimately a physical dial very naturally integrated with the touchscreen stuff, works just fine.
