Interesting, and perhaps coming to a domestic city near you.

It has some scary implication if one considers what else can be done with that data.

Personally I dont think it would slow me down one bit. Its good for those "I'm sorry, I didnt realize how fast I was going" cases, but I have always been aware of my speed, just chose to excees the speed limit, so I couldnt honestly use that excuse.

Great, now on top of the other costs associated with owning a car, I have to pay some backyard mechanic to disable this stupid fucking device too.

The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion

Well, if this is like any other GPS stuff, a simply reynold's wrap around the receiver would solve the problem

I thought this solution up when I read about Dollar rental charging their customers extra when they caught them speeding in a rental using a similar technology.

Great. Now the man knows exactly where you are in your car at all times and how fast you're going.

WARNING
If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned...... Tyler
