We didn't even know there was a Computer History Museum, but that didn't stop the Mountain View, California institution from inducting Ford's SYNC infotainment system
into its permanent collection. The seven-year-old in-car technology, first made available as an option on the 2008 Ford Focus
for $395, has since found more than four million takers and is expected to add five million more over the next three years as it gets offered worldwide.
The museum officially added the first-generation SYNC module, which is little more than a green, circuit- and module-laden board, but we'd expect there to be a touchscreen console for visitors to actually discover what it can do. Scroll down
