    You guys just aren’t old enough. Bunch of us old timers were buying $2k+ phones well before the iPhone. Moto Elite and Startac VIPs.

    .
    Sure thing, but in no way was that normal back in 2005, to have a 2000$ phone. Now its considered a NORMAL 'status' symbol to be 14 and have a 1500-2000$ phone.

    Best part? Not only are these phones much more expensive than before, they are also much more fragile - now with glass back phones too.

    I used to have a Nokia candy bar phone that I had for over 4 years - it died after it fell into a slush puddle full of salt and mud water. 100$ later I was back in business.

    I donít remember the last time I had a subsidized iPhone, I buy them unlocked at the Apple store and save the 30-40/mo on my plans.
    The 30-40 you "save" is just an interest free loan to purchase the same phone for the same end price. Technically speaking, financing is a better deal as you can take that ~$1000 up front cost and have it invested elsewhere for the duration.

    It’s a lot different than back then. Back then we’re literally buying expensive phones. These are pocket computing devices that can be used as a phone.

    You want to do an apples to apples comparison, $85 for a flip phone at Fido. You can’t compare the durability of a phone with a small low res screen and a smart phone with a high def touchscreen in comparison, which needs to be a decent size to be usable.

    I do know a few people with Tesla's and I agree with you on the maps. Although Android Auto is smart enough to grab my calendar address when I get in the car.

    Regarding the wood strip, are you having it covered with a film or are there actual replacements you can get?
    If you sync your calendar and your appointments have locations set, when you get in your car it will auto nav to the location set.

    I have not seen any replacements for the strip, mostly people just covering it up with their choice of vinyl.

    ^ yeah, the video above showing the carbon fiber cover looks good. I would definitely do that if I had the black interior.

    Where he's going he doesn't need roads.
    We must seek to understand each other, and even when we cannot, remain kind.

    Not a lot different to when people pull into gas pumps with both sides are available and they take the side opposite to their gas cap and have to fumble with the hose over the top of their car/SUV. Although this one does have a Tesla owner level of pretentiousness to it.

    They take 2-3 minutes like all cars, right?
