   My company just installed PeopleNet in our trucks. Our regular customers can connect and track their freight, so why should I allow brokers access my personal phone with questionable software? I dont care if they want to track me. That's not the point. I dont want spy/mal/ransomware on my phone.
 
   MacroPoint IS on the google android store, so if the broker sends me the link to that, it's probably safe. But I have also had brokers send me links to other tracking programs that are coming from God knows where, and I refuse to install them. They can kiss my ass.

   Here is an interesting thread about these new phone apps that allow brokers and their customers to track trucks while hauling their freight.
 
   The scary part is that they could contain spyware. Read the TOS and I hear that you give permission to let them have full access to all your files. They claim the brokers only get tracking info. I wonder what data and info they are gleaning and selling, just like all the other "free" apps like Twitter.

Truckstop Antics / Re: Big Oopsie At Sidney Ohio Loves

I would love to see the bill to pump that shit out and clean the tank. I wonder how much the diesel and the DEF fluid that was still in the tank was worth. Expensive mistake, I'm sure lol

Truckstop Antics / Big Oopsie At Sidney Ohio Loves
« on: September 26, 2019, 08:07:17 AM »
Yesterday, I stopped at the new Loves in Sidney, Ohio on I-75, and was told one of their fuel delivery guys did a bad thing. He accidentally dropped 100 gallons of diesel into the DEF tank. Oops. When I got there, they had a hazmat waste hauler there pumping the tank out. I'm sure that underground DEF tank will have to be cleaned out too. Can't be any contamination for that stuff.
