1. Self-driving car?
Try self-driving RV .
With the boomers retiring and slowing down, this will be a huge product category.

2. 25" screen? How quaint.
How about thinking futuristically, maybe a VR holosphere driven by methane micro-lasers?
Gonna need some sort of privacy screen for the inevitable social maladjusted out there that feel the need for a FUFME session with their 'net-enabled fleshlight on the 405.

Here is the list of organizations who got the info:

Georgia Democratic Party
Georgia Republican Party
Georgia Libertarian Party
Independence Party of Georgia
Southern Party of Georgia
Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Macon Telegraph
Savannah Morning News
Georgia GunOwner Magazine
Georgia Pundit
News Publishing Co.

Who is the biggest risk? Who has the least to lose and the most ideological fervor? Who is most likely simply to get hacked?

Actually, it isn't the gun nut magazine, it's the Southern Party of Georgia.

Besides, have you ever heard how gun nuts talk?

Besides, everybody knows that if you're not NASCAR, you're NASCDR.
