Usability: The Ford Model T

Jeremy Clarkson is always good to watch, he is wrong on many things but wrong with style. On a recent Top Gear they looked at how the modern car control layout was developed which is an interesting story in itself.

But what is interesting is how the development of the car so closely matches that of the computer as far as usability is concerned. Complete with documentation in badly translated English and the most bizarre control systems you can imagine.
