Grand Theft Auto, with a laptop

Stories have been going around the Web recently about a Czech car thief using a laptop to steal cars with keyless, push-button starters. My colleague Robert Vamosi, who sits in the office next to mine, wrote an excellent column describing various hacks of vehicle keyless start systems and how they were accomplished.
