Should journalists assume that the connected things we review might report back to their PR handlers? Probably!
New York Times writer John M. Broder may be about to have an awful week: A day after the NYT ran his scathing piece on the Tesla Model S's limited cold-weather range (http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/10/automobiles/stalled-on-the-ev-highway.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0), Tesla founder Elon Musk took to Twitter to say he had proof Broder made it up.
"NYTimes article about Tesla range in cold is fake. Vehicle logs tell true story that he didn't actually charge to max & took a long detour." (http://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/301049593385340928)
Musk then said that while logging is off by default, they've kept it on for media after the BBC's Top Gear ran a review he hated (and sued unsuccessfully over).
I don't know who's right, but I'm surprised this kind of dispute hasn't erupted before, given all the data connected devices and services send back.
