6 ways your car can spy on you

Thanks to computers, global positioning satellites and various sensors your movements are being tracked.

but at least you can decide yourself, what you disclose

Good food for thought, kind of lamely written. Thanks for posting.

Toll booths have had ticket clocks for years and the old simple Rate= Distance/time formula could show that you averaged say 114mph between plazas (Not that I've ever done that)

OnStars' ability to shut you down is the one that troubles me and gives me reason to keep rolling old school.

But every time I put the top down, all that foil on the underside gets tucked away. So they can find me, but the wax paper inside my hat keeps them from reading my thoughts.

Patriot, thanks for the info, I won't be so worried after my daughter gets her 5thgen, I'll be able to borrow it.

Put double sided tape on the foil keeps it from coming off in the wind.
