The internet is spreading into more and more of our everyday items and belongings. While this has some exciting potentials aligned with it, there is also some concern about issue of hacking and control.
Today, cars are hooked up to the internet and are essentially giant computers. That means someone who knows what they’re doing can now hack into your car and control it.
There is speculation that this may be the culprit behind the death of Michael Hastings, an investigative reporter who died in strange car accident.
He had just tried to contact WikiLeaks before he was murdered.
This is a disturbing possibility, and raises a lot of questions and problems as our technology gets more advanced.
