Good story on a real problem

Very thoughtful story, Rob. The headline really drew me in especially because I sort of had a personal experience with this many years ago (I would say about eight years ago now) when I was with a friend in SF who was a software engineer. We were in a cafe and he had his laptop and he showed me how with a program he could intercept wireless traffic in that cafe and essentially hack into wireless devices. (He didn't do it, but just showed me that he could if he wanted to.) We've come a long way since then but there are still very real threats out there and it's good to focus attention on this problem before it gets out of hand.
