Your Car, the Data-Collector/Seller

We've mentioned this a few times, and Peter found a WaPo video essay on the issue.

The YouTube can be found at this link.

OnStar has a couple of really useful features, but they are not severable from OnStar Spying services.  Too bad, eh?

And don't think for a second that Chrysler, Ford, Toyota, KIA, (et al) are innocent little pansies.  They hoover as much data as GM (or they'd like to) and they won't tell you where it goes, either.

Just think of it this way:  your FedGov friends know everything your car tells them, which is quite a lot more than you want your FedGov friends to know.

Thanks, GM!!
