"Nothing was sacred--not even police cars."

Re: Old ways is best.
@Kelly: Okay, fine.  I *really* drive an older car because I'm conservative and frugal.  Happy?  ;)

Of course, I don't really consider a 2012 vehicle "older."  Until recently I was driving a 2004 model -- and I don't even consider that *that* old.

Re: Awesome but dangerous
"... however it was a very dangerous way to prove a point ..."

I agree. At the same time it would not have made the news if it was not dangerous, would it?

"... how it is "Cool" to hack a car ..."

I hear you. It is cool to hack a car as if you are remotely controlling a drone. Is that really not fun? :--)).

Car hacking
My favorite was the car hacking in 2015. We have been talking about for years that cars intelligent so target for the bad guys bit nobody was listening, it made a little bit news in 2015.

Re: Old ways is best.
Not so fast, @JoeStanganelli. Did you read my story about the older police cruisers that were hacked, too? Bad guys with purpose and access can hack non-networked cars, too. =) (See the Coolest Hacks story for more deets).

Old ways is best.
This, among other reasons, is why I drive an older car.  Not hackable.  :)
