Your BMW can be stolen by any idiot with a $30 hacking kit

I've been following this story through various news sources and thought it worth sharing for those who may not have seen it. For me it came as a reminder of how technology has become so pervasive throughout our lives, and the implications it can have upon us:

Time to buy a new one  :D

"After extensive research we are clear that none of our latest models - new 1 Series Hatch, 3 Series, 5 Series, 6 Series and 7 Series - nor any other BMW built after September 2011 can be stolen using this method.

I wonder how many other car companies have this problem. if I knew more about it, and had a programmable key, I'd be practicing on my  car.
