I remember when The Science Channel, National Geographic, and Discovery showed actual science programming. Now they are filled with programming about loudmouth d-bags and their "dangerous" jobs, or redneck-backwoods survivors, or people doing stuff naked... I also remember when MTV played videos... Get off my lawn!

2015 Corvette Valet Mode Recorder Illegal In Some States 269

innocent_white_lamb writes: The 2015 Corvette has a Valet Mode that records audio and video when someone other than the owner is driving the car. Activating the Valet Mode allows you to record front-facing video as well as capture audio from within the car so you can help keep your Corvette safe when it's in the hands of others. Well, it turns out that recording audio from within the car may be considered a felony in some states that require notice and consent to individuals that they are being recorded. Now GM is sending notices out to dealerships and customers alerting them to this fact as well as promising a future update to the PDR system.
