The fancy RFID transponders in the keys of newer cars are supposed to make those vehicles unstealable. That sounds absurd: any technological defense can be overcome — and will be, with the proper incentives. Nonetheless, it’s precisely what some insurance companies say in the course of accusing you of fabricating a car-theft claim. In fact, thieves have found a variety of work-arounds, some provided by the vehicle manufacturers themselves! I recommend reading the full story from Wired. Not only is the information quite interesting, but it might well save you a boatload of financial hurt someday. (Via GeekPress.)
