I hope that car manufacturers will find their way back into modular electronics,
just like car radios ages ago.

With he current rate of development, car electronics are obsolete for most of
the car's lifetime.

A good example is built-in navigation systems, where car manufactures have a
hard time understanding what to charge for updating maps, so people just use
a standalone device next to the built-in one.

Android devices typically receive their last update 1.5 years after the devices
were last sold. Nice driving around with an unpatched, internet connected
car entertainment system.

With modular electronics, those who want their pi powered hadoop cluster can
just by an aftermarket upgrade.
