That's what they say about the digital speedometer back in the 80s. As far as I can tell, we're still looking at needles gliding past numbers to tell us how fast we're going.

Way to cherry pick.

He is not cherry picking. He is disproving a blanket statement in the simplest possible way - by providing a counter example.

No, he's cherry picking.

No, he isn't.

No, I wasn't.

But this example touched some nerves among the pro digital crowd because unlike film, vinyl records and analog watches, not only do analog speedometers survive, they actually thrive.

The few times that my rental car had a digital speedometer, I didn't like it because it would say 10mph one moment, and then 0 mph the next. I feel a disconnect with reality. Or was it 'lag' at play? Am I describing a digital speedometer or a EVF?

If there were an actual advantage to a digital speedometer, perhaps he'd have a point.

He does have a point. As the blanket statement was: Electronics is the future. Not anything in there about advantages.
