Re: Touch screens

OT: Why do cars need electric parking brakes?

Because when I put the handbrake on my wife often can't release it.

Because it provides a consistent and reliable application of the aforementioned brake when you turn the car off (no half pulling it on, not realising that the cable has stretched, and besides it's cold at the moment and as the day warms up the cable will stretch and release the brake).
