Mazda is purging touchscreens from its vehicles (motorauthority.com)

https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=20200335
Our 2015 Ford Fusion with touch screen and touch panel with no physical buttons, knobs, and sliders to control fan speed and temperature is the most dangerous vehicle i have ever driven. what problem were engineers solving by removing physical knobs and buttons from driver usage. the crappy design is great for passengers or when drivers are stopped. actually no. it takes too long to adjust temp and fan speed with the asinine touch panel. humans can be amazing by our stupidity. this is clearly ruined by design. this terrible Fusion dashboard design did not solve problems. IT CREATED PROBLEMS.
