First, I want to make it clear that the type of hack that the car-hacking superfriends Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek did this time is not remote. They had a laptop physically connected to the car via the OBD port. Let that temper your alarm as I tell you that they were able to get control of steering and braking,…
Earlier today, we got a simple but interesting question emailed to us from a guy named Rich: “Anyone ever notice that on the new Jeep Cherokees, the reflection that you see on the back panel is upside down?

Well, our cyberpunk dystopian future is upon us because Chrysler just recalled 1.4 million cars because of their vulnerability to hackers.
You’ve gotta be pretty well dialed with your inner peace to come off the highway, stop on your roof, and say something like; “well that was awesome.”
Some dude turned a 900cc engine out of a Kawasaki sport bike, strapped it to the front of his XJ Jeep Cherokee, and proceeded to make this snowy driveway his bitch. Sure beats shoveling.
