GM Will Now Let You Shop While You Drive
Call me old fashioned (it has whiskey!), but vehicles are for transporting you to and from a place to shop, NOT to be a shopping port.
The geniuses at GM have introduced Marketplace; which is a platform to allow drivers to shop from the comfort of their brand new GMC, Buick, Cadillac, or Chevrolet vehicles.
Because...shopping in a store or online is so 2016?
It used to be "shop 'til you drop," now it's "shop 'til you crash!"
Supposedly, the reason for this "upgrade" is because stores are mad that consumers spend too much time driving their vehicles and not enough shopping.
I have a daily commute of 2+ hours, and I have zero desire to shop while I'm driving down the highway at
70 65 miles per hour.
Allegedly, GM designed this feature to "keep it from being too distracting."
Look, fellers: ANY additional distraction is TOO MUCH, even minimal.
This "convenience" will get people killed.
Of course, with the repeal of Net Neutrality, some stores could become accessible ONLY by Marketplace.
