    Incredible mind-boggling stuff.
    Hardware/hardwired-spyware on the motherboard on rental PC's as a company policy?
    Some rental firm idiot employee can even take screenshots of all your family members (as in wife/kids/babies) and perhaps post them god knows where...
    Smart move of the family involved to not lose their cool but instead go to the police and file appropriate criminal charges.

    This 'Aaron Inc./Loudermilk' family business deserves to go bankrupt and those accountable/responsible, deserve jail for such unforgivable invasion of privacy.
    Perhaps sharing a cell with some unknown dudes at Georgia State Prison will teach those responsible, the value of privacy.

    You have to wonder what some of these companies are thinking. I guess they thought their customers were too stupid to discover what was happening.

    I agree. A shocking invasion of private space. Plus, they're stupid. A class action's really too good for them. Off with their heads.
