Young driver mistakes cassette slot in car for iPhone dock - and ends up regretting it 0 comments 11:48, 4 September 2015 Updated 12:06, 4 September 2015 By Kirstie McCrum They were a standard fixture in vehicles for 20 years, but the cassette decks which brought tunes to our travels are out of date now Getty In-car entertainment: The cassette player was a stalwart in cars in the 1980s and 1990s Many of us remember the joy of the in-car cassette, giving us the greatest sounds when we borrowed our parent's car to impress our friends. But it turns out young people nowadays don't have the same connection with the audio sound system. A young man who was baffled as to their purpose stopped in to see a garage mechanic complaining that the cassette deck has scratched his iPhone - after he'd inserted it, thinking it was an iPhone dock. The pictures, which were shared by Mike Smith at Buick GMC on Facebook, show the phone fitting perfectly into the slot intended for audio cassettes. But it also reveals the unlucky scratches sustained by the technology from a future time. More than 39,000 people have liked the post so far, with many decrying the young man's naivety. Teresa Langdon commented: "This is our future leaders? SCARY" while Halinyah Yerry added: "Goes to show, people so don't know their history."
