I've got a thing about touch screens and vehicles, especially bikes. Truth seems to be that tech sells vehicles to some and repulses others, I think it's a great way for mfrs to make old tech look new and cutting edge again. It seems to be a generational divide. I want a computer running EFI, IGN, ABS and ride modes, a single switch controls that, no touchscreen needed. I've seen washer/dryer sets and fridges with smart screens, cant think of many more reasons to keep the Kenmore 60 series for another couple decades. I happen to be in agreement with you, it's largely needless, expensive and often counterproductive to try and automate things that just don't need to be "smart". Sometimes simple is good and less is more.
