I hope there's a free trial for the movie, so I can try it out before committing to a subscription.
Jerry and George get caught urinating in the parking garage and, independently, they use their imprisonment in a red prison as an excuse for why the security guard should let them go.
It's not really porn they're watching -- it's terrorist missives encrypted in image files.
I don't know which BMW you were comparing with, but mine has the exact same controls you mentioned: Dials for volume and temperature, and buttons for seek and fan.
I don't agree with the GP that "iDrive...gets top marks for minimizing driver distraction" either, but your assessment about requiring a screen and having a dozen buttons is wrong.
In the Z4 I rented, I couldn't figure out how to turn the damn screen of... you should be able to turn off the backligfht at night!!
It can be turned off (or dimmed) in my 2007 BMW under Settings | Display, if memory serves. (Settings is accessed by pressing the dial down, rather than "bumping" it like all the other menus.) I mapped that function to one of the steering wheel controls for the precise reason you gave, so with a press of the button it turns on/off at night.

My wife is a grade school teacher and sees the results of this coddling. In just one example, she played a math game with her class and gave the winner a small prize. Most of the kids had a lot of fun and learned something too; but what took her by surprise is that some of the kids began crying. She asked them why, and [paraphrased] it was because they'd been raised with the belief that "everyone's a winner." They had never "lost" before, and it was devastating to them / they didn't know how to respond.
Apple has had its share of failures, reminds me of the Apple Lisa.
It's bemusing you had to go back 30 years to be reminded of an Apple failure.
I dislike Apple (as a company) even more than Microsoft now, but your statement just underscores how successful Apple has been in the past decade. Microsoft? Not so much.
I was going to post the same thing. It's not uncommon to have sites that also limit your password to letters & numbers only.
(As an aside, the most heinous are the websites where you Forgot your password? and they email it right back to you in plaintext.)
Just over a year ago, I posted (by request) some truths - was quickly lynched by several thousand users, branded a liar and a troll and forced out of the community.
What were the truths?
I hold them to be self-evident.
