[AP]Texting, Grand Theft Auto style. - Page 5

post #41 of 58
Old co worker of mine showed me just how easy it was to bypass a typical alarm system... It literally took a few seconds and done. I kid you not, it was pretty much that gone in 60 seconds stuff, but even easier. He just pressed a button and waited a few seconds till the door unlocked.

It's a nice microwave so I'm going to buy it, it just happens to have that feature and I don't necessarily need it and I didn't buy it just for that button but since it has it I'm going to use it. If that doesn't make sense then you've never bought a microwave before. What is this thread about again?
I stopped reading at it. tl;dr.

I thought this thread was going to be about a stupid mod for GTA IV and I was planning on saying why don't you just smash the window and hotwire the cars instead of modding the game. lol

The thieves will only get a couple of miles away and then can be found sitting on the shoulder in a cloud of smoke/steam. Should be easy to spot though.

In the end it doesn't matter how much security (alarm systems, etc) or simple your car is. You could drive a damn tank but if your an idiot or the unlucky guy, it's gonna get stolen. All the gadgets and tricks in the world won't help when a flat bed pulls up to your Benz that's parked way out far in the malls parking lot.

I think this might stop the people with the flat bed.
