A parking lot owner in L.A. seem to have decided that it needs to collect on-line activity information from its customers....and not in a small way. If this is a new revenue source, can it be long before it comes to a parking lot near you?

In a completely different vein...
After parking his car in the garage — seldom an easy task, as any SoCal TJ’s customer will attest — he was instructed by an attendant to download an app to his phone, register for service and use that for payment.

“Not wanting to give some random app a ton of personal information, I declined,” the Hollywood resident told me.

The parking-lot attendant, he said, “let me off with a warning that I wouldn’t be so lucky next time.”
