Wired - September 26, 2011

Retreat­ing under intense pub­lic pres­sure, OnStar announced that it will no longer be track­ing cus­tomers who can­cel their ser­vice. The deci­sion came one day after Sen­a­tor Chuck Schumer (D-NY) asked the FTC to inves­ti­gate, call­ing OnStar’s con­tin­u­ing sur­veil­lance one of the most “brazen inva­sions of pri­va­cy in recent mem­o­ry.”
