Here’s a useful technology that I personally have on my car because I couldn’t opt out unless I got
the car with it. The news that OnStar could go black for millions of analog subscribers in ’08 tells
only one story, that a useful technology that is overpriced might become useless and still overpriced.
I am not bagging on GM for having provided one of the first useful technology to track cars, unlock
cars, and all the bit-bang features that they have been able to do. It’s just that they have not
been able to predict the future which is bluetooth headset enabled phones and all the GPS tracking
Here’s a comment from engadget that I do agree with:
On Star is ridiculous. They are very limited in providing help. My car came with a free 6 month trial but I didn’t bother renewing. You can sign up for a real Personal Assistant or Concierge Service and pay much less. I call my PA and have them do anything and everything for me. This company never advertises on t.v., they rely on word of mouth so I’m doing my part, check them out www.RedButler.com – Cheers, Jen
