I’m Thinking My Lower-Tech Auto is Just Fine…….

What happens when you press the brake pedal and the car doesn’t even slow down?

Forbes tells the story of two guys with an $80,000.00 grant from the Pentagon who have hacked the computer systems on some new cars, and you will have bad dreams after reading about what they found they can do (and undo) on your vehicle.  Especially if you have “OnStar” or one of the other systems that connects to the World Wide Web.

Of course, an internet connection isn’t essential….got a Smartphone?  Play CDs?  Both of these can be used to take over control of your vehicle.  Didn’t I tell you this was the stuff of nightmares?

NOW, I’m wondering how this affects jet airliners…..!
