OnStar Patent for Technology Would Use ‘Vehicle Telematics’ to Target Billboard Ads

15 May

Soon we will have no peace as we drive across the country and gaze at the beautiful sce . . . What the heck! Billboards that change as we get closer and target YOU! Do you have children in the back seat? Up pops an advertisement for a happy meal or a nearby Toys-R- Us store. Do you smoke? Up pops an ad for cigarettes – your brand. Are you taking a vacation? Now the billboard changes to various places along the way to entice you to stop there to visit and spend your money.

How do they know what you’re doing or where you are going or how to target you? ONSTAR ratted you out! That is right your innocent OnStar has fed that billboard your information from all the things you looked at on the web or what your destination is on your vacation. It is almost like Big Brother has his eye on you… Can it be? OF COURSE! All the information about you is on the internet and any input you give to OnStar itself makes you a target. You don’t even have to be “droned!”

In the article below read about the patent that has been applied for to target you with advertisements while you drive. Your buddy “Hal” (OnStar) is watching you and perhaps listening in (who knows). – You have been targeted.

Perhaps it will someday post your picture on a billboard or address you, “Hey, Bill, come to Arby’s at the next exit. Bring your wife and two children, too!” Well, it is not there yet (is it?) but it could be happening in the near future before your eyes. Instead of touring the nation as a “get-away,” you will be driving a “got’cha vacation,” being targeted with no escape from commercialism.
