We're being tracked by where we visited on our computers and what we do on our smartphones. Soon, we're going to be tracked by where we go and how we drive. Privacy is seriously going down the drain.

Interesting that this article was preceded by an article about hacking cars. Too many distractions, too much to break and apparently more to hack. This is an arms race that is bad for the consumer.

The problem with putting these is cars is the technology advances and then you have junk that you can't switch out without taking a huge hit in the wallet to have the next version that will work for you.

I agree with dc 1552. Do we really need more distractions when we are behind the wheel? This looks like a disaster waiting to happen.

We should be building cars with LESS gadgets, not more. There are way too many distractions already - keep it simple and JUST DRIVE!

Most of us are too connected now, perhaps it is time to start thinking about disconnecting once in awhile.
