    Don't give them more ideas

    "That's of great benefit to government, private or criminal entities that surely appreciate the easy new way to spy on, stall or even potentially kill via methods most police departments likely don't have the chops to adequately investigate."

    Chops? The police are undoubtedly champing at the bit to *use* the exploit. Imagine, no more high speed chases; just hack into the fleeing car and take control.

    Make mine a small

    "McGillis said he’s living off of savings and facing a $600 monthly car payment he can’t afford. "I’m a single guy. I don’t need an SUV," he said. “Here I am in this big car."

    Bogus. I own a Mitsu Outlander. It's a mid-size crossover ute. It seats four comfortably; you don't want to be number five, stuck in the middle on the hump. They now offer an optional third row seat bench; good luck trying to get into it back there.

    Tricked out, mine was less than $30k new; monthly payment financed through Mitsubishi was ~$350. No way he has a $600 monthly payment, unless he's as much an idiot as his other described actions make him appear.

    Re: Aereo Bankruptcy Resolution

    Looks like it only works with an existing HD antenna. That's of no help when there's no OTA signal to pick up.

    That was Aereo's saving grace; it picked up Over The Air, but then delivered Over The Internet.
