Keep thinking companies will let that stop them from data mining you. You are already getting data mined if you have a newish car and you take it into the dealer (through both black box and often GPS/Navigation system). It won't be long until your shit will be connected to data networks whether you like it or not (at least in the US). Guess its time to get to work on those Faraday cages.
