The crew over at Engadget sent this article to us, and we thought we would share it. In Japan, Toyota markets a system similar to GM's OnStar with GPS, security, and safety features all tied into a communication service. We're sure you get the picture. And you will get the picture if your car falls into the wrong hands. The built-in security will photograph thieves who steal your car. The pictures are sent to Toyota's central service. Perhaps we could get streaming videos and create a new reality series, like "Who wants to steal the JDM car?"
