It's almost a curse to know how easy it is to spy or steal an identity these days, tekochip. I have been intermittently tempted to cancel my credit cards and limit my Internet connections, but neither actions are practical. I couldn't do my job without an Internet connection. And travel (which I must do for work) would become very difficult without credit cars. So instead of doing something about it, I (like many people) continue with the status quo and occasionally worry about the long-term results.

I suppose I should feel SO much safer when my own country is spying on me. In the interest of homeland security, of course.

I could be wrong, Jack, but I don't see what would prevent them from making the same request of GM.

Taking your point one step further, tekochip, what's to prevent the technology to bug / track / record being built in up front?  Who actually "owns" the communication?  The govenements can ask Google to supply certain communications, are they going to have the ability to make the same requests to GM?

Good point, tekochip. I wonder if GM has even considered the opportunities for identity theft in used cars and rental cars with this technology.

Wow, perfect example Chuck. There are probably as many things that can go wrong in a new car design as in a new consumer electronics design.

Here's a corollary to your theory, Ann: Never buy a new vehicle in the first year after a redesign.

Chuck, it applies to hardware, too. The principle of "never buy v1.0" may have started with software, but it expanded to include all electronics. IOW, not just when buying a separate software package or OS, but not buying the very first rev of any machine run by software.

Exactly shehan, this will greatly help to the businessmen.
Of course there will be a anytime internet with smart phones, but it will only for the sake of connectivity, Personally for me it is not enough to handle any professional work(with the device). It will enough to the people who are always in face book or twitter.
