Police 'stumped' by car thefts using electronic skeleton key

Jeff Lamb

I know some UK crim types are using a jamming device.

They basically sit up in a car park / near driveway and actively jam the remotes signal resulting in cars left unlocked (apparently a lot of people don't check the car is locked or look for the indicators flashing when locking).

Its then just a case of waiting for people to walk away and hey presto - unlocked car.


Dell XPS M1730 17in gaming laptop

Have one and its great

I bought one and I have to say its great.

Ok, its heavy and large, and thats just the power supply - but as the review pointed out thats not the point.

I got it with Vista and I'm not looking back. My previous laptop was an alienware, but the XPS actually has real performance.

The laptop bag is rather large - you could probably fit 10 eeePC's in it - whilst still carrying the XPS as well! I'd save my money and get a third party one instead - although the XPS one is very nice.

I can honestly say I've had no problems with it, which for me is a first.

Why Paris? Both are by by no means perfect, but if you had the chance to have either you'd be mad not to.
