27: CD Players
There was a time when having a CD player in your car was a badge of honor. Today, that isn’t the case at all as instead the CD player has been replaced. First, it was vehicles that had MP3 compatibility built-in, and now it’s the rise of streaming audio. All you have to do is hook up your vehicle’s audio to a Bluetooth connection.
The compact disk was heralded as a revolution in personal media, and the same went for CD players in cars. But now with steaming and smartphones, the need to walk around with a stack of CDs is downright useless. Most new cars are starting to incorporate their own built-in internet connection as well.
