The dashboard is no place to roll back technology in favor of tradition

My rental car from the weekend, a Chrysler 200, was equipped with only an analog clock in the dashboard, even though the radio mounted directly below the clock had a digital display.


I can’t begin to imagine the amount of pretentiousness required in order to eliminate the digital clock entirely from the dashboard.

It’s akin to having an actual Rolodex mounted onto my iPhone rather than an app to organize my contact list. 

Which is another way of saying it’s incredibly stupid.
