I'm not against the tech, I'm against buying a 4000lb ipad that has a secondary function of transportation.
Does this point of view also render a negative opinion of the following incredibly tech rich cars:

McLaren MP4-12C
Ferrari 458 Italia
Ferrari 599 GTO
Nissan GT-R
Bugati Veyron

Many of those are quite serious drivers cars.
