I dont want to fly on a plane that is inherently unstable by design, as this one is, and requires software to ensure it remains in the air...Software is not required to ensure it remains in the air. (That statement would be valid for an Airbus.... you should avoid flying on them.)
The MCAS is in place to make the airplane "feel" nearly identical to the NG version of the plane (something it does surprisingly well!)... so that minimal training would be required to transition between the NG and MAX versions of the airplane. (This MCAS is not related to what you were comparing it to in modern fighter aircraft.)
The airplane would fly and perform just fine without MCAS, but would "feel" differently than older versions from a pilot's perspective.

Unfortunately carplay is more of a gimmick than someting functional, even the icons are big and rendered in a coarse way (very unlike anyting Apple).
The super paternalistic mode (couldn’t find a way to turn that off) is totally unworkable. I couldnt even read my whatsapp messages, instead boring cumbersome Siri took over...
I don't really WANT you to be able to stare at the screen to read WhatsApp... I want you paying attention to the road.The buttons are "big" to make them easier to use in a moving vehicle... easy to find without having to divert too much attention from the road.

... That would probably negate the national debt.
