Remember when you had a CD player and a cassette player in your car? Matter of fact, remember when you had a walkman? Those started with cassettes, then they graduated to CDs. But, when is the last time you saw anyone jogging through your neighborhood with either? It’s all about the MP3 or iPod right?

With the device, the car becomes Wi-Fi capable and you can access your Internet library. Can’t wait or do you think this is premature? Ford is taking a chance.
