Car toys and their evolution

They were so cool when they first arrived! A CD player in your car. My 2004 Murano (God rest its totaled soul) had a six-CD player in it and I loved it. And while I do own an iPod, I long for a six-CD player in the new car - it has room for one CD at a time. And a jack for an iPod with infinite choices.

Something about the tactile nature of each CD and my ability to precisely select what I want to hear appeals to me from my Murano days. But soon, all cars may be manufactured without any CD player (see story).

Sometimes infinite choice actually takes away direct control.
