open those windows tonight. when you rent a car, a lot of people want all the bells and whistles. i know you like the bells and whistles. >> krystal: i do. why not. >> michelle: but you got to be careful technology especially when talking about cars sometimes you have to be careful what you are doing because it comes with a warning. >> krystal: that's true. marie mortera has more what you need to look out for in today's rip-off alert. >> marie: we're focus on connected cars. you get in the rental and you plug in your smart phone or tablet just with devices in your own car. consumer advocates say the potential problem is a lot of our data could be stored on that vehicle that someone else could access. david quinnland from washington state better business bureau office says avoid syncing your phone or devices to the car just for charging. because your information could get stored. it's better to use a cigarette lighter adapter to charge instead of the usb port.
they might know where you went. they might have your phone number. they might have a complete list of all of the people that you have called your contact list. >> marie: what's the alternative? either not connect or delete the device from the info tanment system before returning it. with rip-off alert, i'm marie mortera. >> michelle: all quiet on all fronts in syria today as the country woke up to the very rare sound for them. which is calm. >> krystal: i know it's something they don't hear at all in that country. nationwide cease-fire is still appearing to hold. good news for now. nbc's matt bradley has that story. >> reporter: syrian observatory for human rights reported there haven't been any civilian casualties since the guns fell mostly silent on monday night. a united nations special envoy said that, quote, calm had prevailed. that something of a surprise considering the pes amichl that surrounded this deal when russian american diplomats
are going to reevaluate their progress. if everything know goes as planned russia and america will extend the cease-fire for another 48 hours. there's one crucial element missing. the syrian government has been blocking aid convoys from reaching aleppo. a city that holds 200,000 civilians. the u.n. envoy said that convoys carrying much needed supplies have mostly not crosss the border into syria. gone so far and there's still some 20 that are idling on the syrian border waiting to go through customs. he said regarding humanitarian assistance there's still homework to be done. still optimism among diplomats appears to have spiked. he said if the truce holds some 20 leaders of countries may meet at the u.n. in try to hash out a broader resolution to this five year long civil war that has
syrians are certainly hoping that this cautious optimism continues. matt bradley, nbc news, london. >> michelle: i hope so too. they've been through so much. it's unbelievable. >> krystal: it's unimaginable what they've gone through there. >> michelle: let's lighten it up. if you like dogs you will probably like the next story. the white sox break an attendance record. we're not talking about the fans. >> krystal: they're furry f or fans, rather. coming up we'll explain why in the world all these poochs were at the game. before we go to break we'll leave you with a little snippet from the new show "harry" with harry connick junior airs here on three monday through friday. >> i use to feel sexy.
>> michelle: the chicago white sox set a new attendance record for the game against the cleveland indians last night. but we're not talking about the people who came. we're talking about the dogs! pups of all breeds were represented by their proud owners as the sox welcomed pooch patrons at the field. this is the annual bark in the park event. they were trying to set a new world record. and they did. they succeeded. more than a thousand dogs were there. this is my favorite shot up like five seats each. here they are spray painting their poor dogs. that dog is like what's going on i just want to eat. i am one of those who try to take my dog wherever i can. i'll test the waters and put him in my cart and see how they do. usually no one seems to mind. >> krystal: they're cute. you can't mind your doggies. they'
jim dunlap: too many nevada police officers have been killed
criminals and the dangerously mentally ill to buy guns. they get them at gun shows or online from strangers, no questions asked. so here's something we can do to honor the fallen: close the
