    In-car multimedia ...

    The price of equipment such as GPS navigation, DVD players and so on can easily add up to more than we used to pay for an entire car. Some of this is understandable if you are a long-haul driver who routinely goes to new and unfamiliar areas (GPS). But the rest of it? Whatever happened to counting headlights or blue cars? Why does the Boob Tube and vacuous, Pixar-generated mind rot have to be an omnipresence?

    As much as we complain about the high cost of gas, if we elected not to buy all this expensive, elaborate - and mostly unnecessary - electronic equipment we'd have thousands more in our bank accounts and $3 per gallon wouldn't hurt nearly as much.*

    Quite frankly, other than GPs and a dedicated autoseeking 'Traffic' radio I think all other 'Entertainment media' are just an unnecessary distraction in a vehicle and should be designed in such a manner that they cannot be tuned, altered, programmed etc., while the vehicle is moving/engine is running. As a safety incentive anyone buying a car who specifies that none of these items is to be fitted should get three 'Get out of jail' cards for speeding offences.
