Sunday – The Non-Enigma Machine

I took the Leon to Bletchley Park yesterday. The home of the Government’s top secret Code and Cypher School near Milton Keynes is packed with British technology used to crack German coded transmissions during the Second World War.

Hitler’s Enigma and Lorenz code machines were tough to decipher but the men and women at Bletchley cracked it, using incredible devices like the Colossus, which look like something from a bad Dr Who set and fill an entire room.

Less complicated, thankfully, is SEAT’s infotainment system. I’m still gobsmacked that some manufacturers still manage to create complicated units which aren’t intuitive at all.

The Leon’s touchscreen system is foolproof. So simple you don’t need to be a codebreaker to get to grips with the navigation, Bluetooth or DAB radio. Simples indeed…
