    So they are smart enough to crack the key and ignition but too dumb to disable the tracker?? Sounds like a prudent underwriting approach-not.

    Must be the same underwriter that designed the credit swap default insurance for AIG.

    Waiting for news of hi-tech carjacking ring to crack Google's self-drive cars and have the cars drive themselves to the carjacker's hideout.

    Thanks from here also. I have joined the IoT with a Samsung TV and a couple of other things and this article was quite a good read. Plan on forwarding it to others.
