Analog über Digital!

Cars Bikes Culture

The Analogger: our new and anonymous columnist rants on making it mechanistic and leaving the digital on your phone...

Do you remember a time when your vehicle didn’t answer you back?

A time when you got in, turned the key and all you heard was the sound of the engine?

No beeps? No buzzes? No rings to admonish you for not wearing a seatbelt or parking too close to other stuff? No claxon wail to make you crap yourself when a pushbike comes within half a meter of your bumper sensor?

When the dashboard didn’t light up like a Galaxy Class starship and start firing requests at you? When all was stillness, when your car waited for you, didn’t ask anything from you? When all it needed was to be driven?
