James B. Lansing - for creating a great sounding loudspeaker in 1946.

I know it's expected. From me. But honestly, everything upfront has changed. Spool car systems were replaced with cassette radios. Cassette radios were replaced by CD head Units.
Today MP3, DVD HUs, TV screens,iPod in the car what not. Tomorrow might all be redundant for some other digital device.

One thing has never changed. Then and now, we still use the very same basic engineering that went into speakers.

*stunned silence and realisation occurs to some people, while Sam runs full speed, after having invaded the wrong section of team-BHP*

But why Jac Nasser ?. I have seen enough hara-kiri's by him to bring Ford down to its knees. Firestone, Acquisition of Service Chain in Europe, Losses in Platinum futures etc etc. His tenure saw Ford's cash reserve going down from 20 billion to 5 billion.
