Not really, this is gaining traction and will pose a greater threat in coming years. Now is the time to correct it.

This thread is about so-called hacking, and about molehills being made into mountains.
Much ado over nothing in fact.
It's not about guilt or innocence or courts of law.
You started the damn thing, but you can 't seem to stay on topic.
Typical.

Post #50 was not supposed to be posted here. Post #51 was directed at you.

Fact remains, much ado about nothing, now, and going forward.
It's a stupid topic, and most of the silly rhetoric in it is stupid too.

Itís a very important topic and becoming more prevalent over time.

Only important to those who see it that way.
Unfortunately you're a minority.
In truth, it's just a backwater topic.

So are you now trying to tell people what topic is important? It actually is a very important topic and if I wish to discuss it thatís my business and a freedom I should be able to enjoy without any retribution from those that arenít interested in the topic of hacked vehicles. This problem will become more prevalent in coming years. Keep it on your radar.

Nobody's saying you can't talk about this piece of useless trivia.
All I'm saying is that it's a backwater topic which, in the grand scheme of things, is meaningless.
But then again, you seem to revel in useless trivia.
Dream on, if that's what turns your crank.
But watch out for those gremlins--they're everywhere!!
Silly goose!

I have no problem with this particular post of yours. Thatís the way it should be. WE should be able to talk about things in an open manner without such mean spirited and name calling from you. I never have really understood that about you.

I could care less about you having problems with me, or otherwise.
Nor do I concern myself about you not understanding me.
It's fairly obvious what you're all about. I have no problem understanding that.

Re name calling--i reserve the right to call a spade a spade.
You deserve everything you've been called.
Snakes are easy to spot, and naming is a direct result of discovery.
Sure I calls 'em like I sees 'em, but always with good reason--they're revealed.
Unlike you who goes way beyond names, and constantly posts cyber stupidity laced with filth at every opportunity, often for no reason.(But lots of excuses)

I've never called you one bad name ever. If you have something to say about that you are welcome to quote me. Bring up anything that I might have called you and I will apologize.

Enough of the baseless allegations. Put your money where your mouth is. It would do us all a big help to get your feelings out in the open so we can address what the problem is.

This thread is about the prius Hack Job and you obviously don't like it. On the contrary I know this will be an ever developing story in the future as more cars start being hacked.

A pitifully feeble subject--car hacking--being given profound lip service by a pitifully feeble protagonist.
A protagonist who denies sitting smack in the centre of a cyber stupidity scam.
A baseless topic being foisted upon us for reasons which are far beyond reason.
A topic which interests no one other than the protagonist and his aliases.
What a useless topic and a pointless waste of bandwidth.

Now back to the topic, this car hacking business is growing and will develop more in the future. I suggest everyone should keep their eyes open.

Back to what topic?
Be advised.
Car hacking is a non topic.
It's possible to do it, under very specific conditions.
So what.
Why would anyone worry about it?
Rest assured, hackers have far more rewarding challenges to interest them.
Seems the only person getting anal about it is Root.

Gremlins anyone?
Psst--Root sees them everywhere.

The topic is toyota prius hack job. If you don't like it that's you decision but that's what this is about. If you have anything to say about hacking cars in a positive manner I'm all ears.

You might want to turn your ears to reality fom timevto time.
Living in la La Land can become habitual.
The subject of car hacking is, quite frankly, ludicrous.
And being anal about it bizarre.

Read on the news today that a baby monitor in a home was thought to be hacked.
A voice was heard over the monitor talking gibberish to a baby in a crib.
Turned out it was a harmonic from some person's CB Radio which found its way into the monitor's radio frequency.
Hacking a baby monitor?
About as fluky as hacking a car.
Why would anybody want to?

This brings up an important point. If a person's house can be hacked like a car, the owners need to make sure baby monitors are covered.
