Tesla's new steering yoke looks futuristic but lacks practicality

I don’t like it. It’s got a flat bottom and makes it much more difficult to use my knees to steer whilst I eat a kebab or something.

I've been driving an older GMC truck that has a windshield wiper button on the end of the turn signal, and I cannot count how many times that the windshield wipers have gone off and distracted me at one of the worst times, when I am getting ready to make a turn. I couldn't help but think about what kind of an ***** engineer would design something like this. Now, I see this: a steering wheel that will give you golfer's elbow when trying to make a tight turn and all kinds of buttons that will do strange things at the worst possible times. Elon Musk is no *****, but I don't want his steering wheel, er, whatever it is, in anything that I have to drive.

Just another gimmick to appeal to the easily led who are eager to be the first adopters of anything new. Anything new whether good or bad. Change for the sake of change.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
I heard a lot of negative feedback about Yoke. But to be fair, some feedbacks were positive to the point it changed their driving experience. It is a matter of getting used to it.
Just wondering, anyone using yoke steering wheel here? I really need some insight. :)
