Ford To Stop Installing CD Players In New Vehicles

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Ford will soon stop installing CD players in its new vehicles.

The automaker is scrapping CD players in its new vehicle models and opting to instead install USB sockets for iPods and other digital music players.

Ford says all of its new cars will have a computer hub, which will allow drivers to access their music libraries from the Internet.

    Does this mean they will make the post-modern cassette as an option?

    Although it sounds great to some, people like my mother don’t use ipods. She would prefer the option to have a cd player in her new Ford. I’m not sure how good of an idea this actually is for all.

    It’s no big deal.Best Buy will still sell cd players and install them for several more years until cd’s are stopped being created.Music and video downloads are the future of entertainment.Ford is just getting a head start on the competition.

    Every body felt sorry for the people that built cars, when they were having problems. And the government gave the a ton of money. How do we get repaid, by putting the people who ship cd’s out of business. I work for sony and technology is just putting every body out of a job. I have a ford f 150, but i will never buy another one. Thanks ford
