By the way, the best way to keep your data private is to keep it out of your untrusted phone/computer/whatnot, and use bogus data when you need to enter something.

Exemples: use "Acme inc." as your home phone number's name in your addressbook, and nicknames for your contacts. Don't enter your full address as your home in your satnav's app but someone's address in a street close-by, etc.

Unfortunately, that won't help. Your phone number(s) and your home address are already on many of your friend's devices under your real name. Apple, Google & Co already have your details, whether you use their service or not. It should be easy for them to filter out bogus data and associate your number with your real name.

Marchionne is a whiner. FIAT has a history of living off public money for the past 50 or 60 years. During the past years Marchionne has repeatedly requested money from the Italian government in a way that I wouldn't hesitate to describe as extortion: "Either we receive [amount of money] from the government or we close shop and move to a different country; think of all the workers!" In spite of all the subsidies and tax cuts and whatnot received, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles have moved their fiscal base to London and their legal base to Amsterdam last January. So they receive money from Italy but build the cars and pay their taxes elsewhere. Brilliant.

In my eyes Marchionne is now trying his game in CA: whine about "unfair legislation" and request subsidies to "level out the field".
