On his Cool Tools blog, Kevin Kelly profiles the Car Chip E/X, a nifty device that allows drivers to download precious info from a car's electronic
brain. The chip plugs into a car's interior OBDII interface and can record up to 300 hours of driving data, making it a kind of e-spy you can use to rat on yourself and your car. In an accident, the chip will log the last 20 seconds, making it the insurance investigator's best friend. Better treat it nicely.
