    Thanks for sharing.
    It indeed is scary. Not many cars have internet connected infotainment systems here, luckily.
    By the time they become common, I hope the systems be more secure.

    100% agree. Perhaps, we already have entered that dangerous phase

    The problem is criminal minds are always ahead of others.....

    It was more of a controlled demonstration of potential ill effects of connectivity. Frankly, I am a bit fed up with this whole connected car jing-bang. How much connected does one really want to be??Connected while walking, working, driving, eating, even while seated on the "throne". Its just too much. Maybe there will be a new "Un Connect" movement all over the world when people just get tired of WApp and Facebook nonsense. I hear some rumblings already.

    You said it acechip. We need to have this 'Un Connect' movement. Like Sunday, we may wish to reserve a day when we get isolated from the 'material world'.

    The aftershocks of the Hacking are already sending ripples....
    Fiat recalls 1.4 mn cars in US over hacking. Vineet has already started a thread here.
