Security updates for cars

That's how far we are in "the internet of everything" - I am always horrified by system updates for all my devices - often, something will afterwards not work the way it did on my ipad, Apple laptop or Mac Mini, and while everything remains working on windows, I hate the time it takes for downloading (and slowing down everything in the system) and installing apps. I see myself sitting in some car someday not able to start it because of a "critical security update". Someday?

BMW had to just update their cars:
