The $77,845 Computer (Luxury Sedan Included)

from the for-the-gadget-lovers-out-there dept

We’ve written before about the someone insane computer system in the new BMW 7-series, but a writer for Business 2.0 talks in a lot more details about just what that funky iDrive system does. It still sounds incredibly confusing (though, the writer says he didn’t think it was that bad). It certainly sounds as if it takes some getting used to. The article begins with the story of a valet who ended up leaving the car sitting where it was dropped off because he couldn’t figure out how to actually drive the car. In their efforts at simplicity, it sounds as though BMW has made things incredibly complex.
