Modest Proposal for Car Radio Development
At the risk of appearing to be a complete geezer, let me rant about a minor flashback that happened yesterday. Some of you will recall the old car radios that had push buttons. If you liked a particular radio station and wanted to save that setting, all you had to do was to pull out the button slightly and then push it back in. Mission accomplished. Station set. It didn't matter whether you were driving a Dodge or a Buick, go through that routine and you had a set station.
Fast-forward to today's car radios. Let us stipulate their superior sound and the ability to pick up transmissions from Mars. I have two cars and cannot set the stations on either without consulting the owner's manual. Each has different instructions and neither set is as simple as the old pull-out, push-in concept. For those of us who don't want to rummage through the glove box to preserve a station, this is a reminder that new is not always improved. Aargh.
Thanks. I feel better now.
