    Yes, so now Blackberry can impose their crap ideas and turn a so called good thing into crap .

    That may only be because I have not bought one.

    That is a small business owners dream...I would love to start a small business that does what it does so well that a big company comes and buys it. Kind of like winning the lottery. The owners of the businesses my company has purchased in the past 3 years have all retired...wealthy and happy.

    I agree. Just give me a good push-button radio and a CD player. :p
    If this system is an example of hi-tech, then we're headed downhill. The effort is rarely worth the trouble.

    I like tech and all but this time I would have loved to check the radio delete box on my order form and gone after market if needed... But as we know that just ain't what it is now a days ...

    Any issues i've got with MFT are due to my phone being flaky, not MFT. Just sayin.

    Wow! Some people really hate MFT, don't they? I don't mind it. I actually like most of the features, especially the ability to have two phones paired connected with the bluetooth at the same time, one for voice and one for media. Most of the other gripes about it just aren't that big a deal to me. The system is far from perfect, but I don't hate it as much as some of you appear to. Not trying to stir anything up, just saying that it doesn't annoy all of us so much.

    Maybe we'll get a scroll ball. That'll be even more frustrating.

    To complain that it is blackberry tech is about the same as complaining its Microsoft tech. Hate them or not, Ms and QNX both have a LOT of experience in the embedded market. I really don't think MFT will get much better with this changeover if they keep the same UI, ux, and design teams. I agree, this seems very lateral, not forward.

    But only Blackberry would bring back 8 Track Tapes.

    And there is a large group of us old farts who actually remember using those. I'm sort of bummed that Ford is switching because that probably means no more updates for our current system and I would bet a large sum that our current hardware will be "incompatible" with the new OS. Seems similar to the U.S. speedskating team blaming the suits. I personally think it would have been better to fix the UI and leave the underlying bits alone. My $.02

    From what I have played with of the MFT system I'd rather have that than the regular Fiesta Sync (non-MFT) system. I'm young and like gadgets and tech though. I can figure out how to use stuff by just using it. I like the big screen and integrated nav system. But since I don't own one yet, I haven't had any of the issues some of you are having either.

    I have no problem with figuring out the MFT system. I like tech as well as anyone. The system is wonderful if you're sitting by side of the road. But trying to navigate the menus (if you haven't memorized the verbal commands) in traffic can be downright dangerous.
