It seems like just yesterday that automotive manufacturers introduced multi-media user interfaces (MMI) into their vehicles. The first to take the plunge in a big way was BMW with their iDrive system, which was much maligned at the time, but has made steady improvements.  Nearly a decade later, it seems like every vehicle on the market offers some type of MMI. The systems have evolved to the point that Audi recently announced that the MMI in the 2011 Audi A8 will feature handwriting recognition. A nice feature, I suppose, but one that fails to stir up any excitement when you consider what your $300 iPhone can do.
