    Greetings from Penn's woods.

    In regards to Tesla automobiles:
    https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-59357306 and/or here:

    What does the server have to do with accessing ones car? Does that mean you need cell phone service to access your car. Does Tesla know every time you do?

    Its interesting that if you are reading a book on a Kindle reader and you go to the same book on the Kindle for PC you get a message asking you if you wish to sync with where you left off on the reader. Big brother (Amazon.com) is watching!

    They could use the standard supplied key fob but instead chose to use their phone app.
    I stupidly used my phone to pay for bus travel. EE (my phone network) went down. I didn’t have my wallet with oyster or bank card. I was lucky, the bus driver let me continue my journey.
    Moral: don’t rely on technology.
    Another example: my sisters both use Spotify music streaming. I download all my music for a physical file. Several times during social events, their internet has had disruptions stopping music playback for an hour.
    My mobile disco never had that problem as the files are on HDDs.
