Re: Bah!

And in what universe does a remotely controllable burglar alarm make any sense, especially one controlled over the bleeding world wide web?

The universe of marketing, for starters. And the universe of politicians who start drooling uncontrollably if the words "digital" or "apps" are used. Not, it must be said, in any universe where common sense has a place.

It serves to prove that you really can fool most of the people most of the time.
