'nuff said. https://t.co/2283BBcG4nI wish I could buy stock in just Alphabet's "Other Bets". @jaykirsch The OTA thing is a red herring. Much bigger issues with dealer network long-term. @jaykirsch The dealers *are* their customers. That is who they sell to. I don't see them renegotiating that relationship. Weight around neckGM says it "would never" deliver OTA updates to cars, leaving "service" to dealers. Another advantage to tech co's. https://t.co/Rq1Y4UwlBE
