Easiest way to post a picture from the Welt?

Is there an easy way to send a photo directly from one's iPhone to this forum? I don't use my iPhone to follow Bimmerfest and when I do post photos it is through photo bucket using a computer.

Current "state of the art" for Active Cruise Control?

Presently in the U.S., for 2015 4 Series BMWs anyway, the cost of this option is at least half what it was in 2013.
