A friend of mine is a car nut. He had a Lamborghini Espada, a couple of Lotus Elans, Harley motorcycles, a Morgan and a few other things. He told his kid that when he graduated from college he would buy him any car he wanted. When the time came the kid said he wanted… a Prius. The reason being that it had a dock for his iPod and girls liked it. My friend was heartbroken! He wanted to buy the kid a Corvette! The kid wanted a Prius!
I just read a story that says almost half of 18-to-24-year-olds would prefer internet access to their own car.
