Humans haven't evolved in the past 5,000 years! The best we've done is gotten a bit larger from a more reliable food supply.

But people have been lazy since BEFORE we left the trees.
Please excuse the rant, but it is my considered opinion that the worst thing to happen to motoring was the electric self-starter
Before that, you had to understand what internal combustion really meant. Were prepared to change you own spark plugs. And knew how to tuck your thumb so you wouldn't be wearing a cast after the engine kicked back.
So, when automakers unveil more useless gadgets (automatic parallel parking, ad nausium) its just one more reason I want to build a brand new 1990's small car. Before ABS, traction control, speed sensitive wipers, self-tightening seat belts, engines that start and shutdown while in traffic...
But humans are still trying to be as lazy as possible. And any product that feeds this desire will sell.
