Ford Dumps The CD Player In Favor Of Sync

If Ford has any say, the CD player could go the way of the cassette, 8-track, and the phonograph: because what are ya, some kind of Metamucil-chuggin' geezer?

Time to throw out that David Bowie's Greatest Hits CD, because digital media is the only route for Ford and its SYNC system. The well-publicized "infotainment hub" will allow Wifi access of drivers' digital libraries, from Spotifiy or Apple's iCloud. MP3 players can also plug right in via aux inputs. And with 2.15 million Fords expected to have SYNC by 2015, it will be enough to sink the CD player and falling physical media sales (down 12.4% in 2010).

Re: Ford Dumps The CD Player In Favor Of Sync

The world has come a long way over the past 100+ years, some good some bad. I wonder what people would have thought back then if they could see 100+ years into the future? Probably scared! The sad part is I still have 8-tracks, LP's, cassettes, a huge boombox from the early 80's, even a 1908 Edison phonograph with about 50 of the thick Edison 78's to play on it. I guess I will never fully adapt to modern technology as I am (as Jethro Tull would say) Living in the Past. But to me, the past was a better place in time.
