Indeed. I didn't read the article but I did hear about it on the radio driving into work (yes, radio). Driving is chocked full of little distractions, but what the interviewer said was that the digital control on the dash is even more distractive than a phone. I can relate to that - I drove a 2014 rental with one of those. I was a major distraction, and also a pain in the ass. I like my manual controls thank you.

So they basically got away with it. $600k when they're charging $250-$1K per wireless account? Yeah...that's fair.

Yeah, and the victims won't see a penny of it either. What should have happened was the Marriot charged with full refunds with interest to those they scammed. I'm quite certain they would have financial records of them.
