I heard an OnStar ad on the radio today. If you haven’t heard about it, OnStar is the latest in automotive security. It’s winning over drivers around the country. It gives me the creeps.
If your car is stolen, and you want to know where it is, ONSTAR KNOWS.
If your air bag deploys, ONSTAR KNOWS
If you want to know which furniture stores have futons, and how to find them, ONSTAR KNOWS
It appears that OnStar’s mission responsibilities range over the entire operation of the car. It is constantly occupied. It puts itself to the fullest possible use, which is all that any conscious, omnipotent entity can ever hope to do.
I wonder – does OnStar read lips?
