Re: computer aided burglary.
Interesting point - remember when scumbags used to break into cars to nick the stereo and then flog it to some guy down the pub, who'd buy it because they were all a standard size and fitted into the standard rectangular slot in the car? Security meant a detachable front panel that you were meant to put in your pocket when you left the car.
Now every car comes with a built in system, so no point in nicking the stereo as they don't come out easily and no-one needs to buy one.
It would be interesting to know the actual statistics.
