I saw some sort of factoid the other day about how very soon there will exist a generation that won’t know how to read an analog clock. Sha-zizzle, if that doesn’t scare you then maybe this will.
Much like clocks with hands, car gauges with dials could conceivably go the way of Elvis as high-impact consumers become identified as those more comfortable with digital imagery than traditional sweeping needles. By then of course I fully expect to be telling these digital dataheads to get off my lawn while also shaking my fists at clouds.
What about you, which side of the digital divide do you feel most comfortable residing? Are you embracing our inevitable fluorescent display future? Or, are you – like me – still addicted to the needle? What do you prefer in your automotive gauges, digital or dials?
