You would think that the car industry would be big enough and old enough not to have to jump on other people's bandwagons.
However, Mercedes describes its new A Class as being designed for the "Facebook generation". Quite what that means is anyone's guess. With so many people now on the social network, it doesn't mean much more than a car for the "iPhone Generation". Of course they said that too - the A Class is an "iPhone on wheels", apparently.
