An App for Paranoid Obsessive Car Owners

Are you obsessive like me about locking your car? I can’t tell you how
many times I’ve gone back to my car after having walked away to check
that it’s locked. For some reason I can never remember if I lock my
doors.

Cadillac has introduced an app for obsessive paranoid people like me.
It’s called Cadillac Shield. Apparently you can lock you car remotely
with this app. Amazing. I hope more car makers adopt this technology.
It would save me a few moments of paranoia each day.

However, there is some danger in having an app like this. The first
problem is it allows anyone with your phone to unlock your car.
They’ve probably already thought of this and added some sort of pass
code. So it shouldn’t be an issue really. Second, it is likely to be
used so much by someone like me that it will wear out the door locks
on the car. It could happen right? Seriously though, it sounds like a
great idea.
