Der Sommer des Moorhuhns | HNF Blog

Am nächsten Montag feiern die britischen Waidmänner und -frauen den Glorious Twelfth: Ab dem 12. August wird in Schottland und Nordengland das Moorhuhn geschossen. Die Hatz auf den rotbraunen Vogel inspirierte auch ein legendäres deutsches Computerspiel. Die erste Moorhuhnjagd erschien im Herbst 1998. Vor zwanzig Jahren verbreitete sich das Programm dann immer schneller im Netz.
Hachja, ich kann mich auch noch daran erinnern, es als Kind gezockt zu haben. Quasi der erste Shooter.

Opinion | Your Car Knows When You Gain Weight - The New York Times



Today’s cars are equipped with telematics, in the form of an always-on wireless transmitter that constantly sends vehicle performance and maintenance data to the manufacturer. Modern cars collect as much as 25 gigabytes of data per hour, the consulting firm McKinsey estimates, and it’s about much more than performance and maintenance.

Cars not only know how much we weigh but also track how much weight we gain. They know how fast we drive, where we live, how many children we have — even financial information. Connect a phone to a car, and it knows who we call and who we text.

But who owns and, ultimately, controls that data? And what are carmakers doing with it?
[…]
Carmakers use data to alert us when something needs repair or when our cars need to be taken in for service. What they don’t tell us is that by controlling our data, they can limit where we get that repair or service done. For almost a century, car and truck owners have been able to take their vehicles to whichever shop they choose and trust for maintenance and repair. That may be changing.
