New Car or New Computer?

My Dad and I spent much of today looking at new  cars. One of the things that struck me was that the main differences between a brand new “13 reg” car, and the same model from 6 years before is that the main differences weren’t automotive, but were instead technological.

In fact the main features of a new car were better Sounds Systems, Connectionless Keys, Digital Handbrakes, Digital Radio and a better SatNav.

I wonder if Henry Ford ever imagined people would upgrade their car, at least partially, based on its computing ability.
