When I found out General Motors was hiding Black Boxes in their automobiles without the consumers knowledge, I pretty much lost all respect, and brand loyalty to my favorite car manufacturer. It kills me to say it, but I think these guys are traitors. Privacy is all to important for ANY product manufacturer to hide things in their product that may in the future benefit themselves, or the insurance companies. Particularly when it will inevitably be at my expense, whether literally, or figuratively. They crossed the line in my mind, and I don't think a simple apology would rectify this situation.
This is cowardly behavior in my opinion. Another attempt at passing the buck, and relieving themselves from any potential liability.
How do YOU feel about this issue?
Do you think they will ever hide listening devices in there as well?
Do you think they can already listen to the cars that have the ONSTAR system at will?
