Last week, I took my Jeep to the shop for routine maintenance. The service worker told me a software update failed to load and they were going to fix it for me.
I was thrown off guard, so I just looked at the worker with a blank stare. She started explaining how the Jeep has a computer that controls a lot of the functions and the software automatically updates when the Jeep in not running.
I knew my Jeep had a built-in computer, but for some reason I never thought about automatic software updates being done without my knowledge.
I’m not sure how I feel about this. I know computers require updates from time to time, but knowing there is an unseen entity accessing my Jeep and controlling the internal computer makes me a bit uneasy.
