Toronto transit sign hacks

Stephen Harper eats babies.” — This is how the advertising signs in the Toronto trains referred to the Canadian prime minister after a “hacker” with a $25 remote had some fun. Apparently this is the sixth “attack” in the last year. The same exact signs and remotes are commercially available from places like Sam’s club. The funny thing is that their big counter-measure is to password-protect each of the signs, which will do absolutely nothing to secure them since anyone with 4$ and a radio-shack IR kit could intercept and replay the password and any new message that they want.

    In the universe of duplicate watches, there are many players. Many of them barter decently useful duplicate watches. But the best of the lot come from the manufacturing and warehousing facilities of our site. The best selling Rolex duplicate wakefulness line is an illustration of the same.Each Rolex duplicate Daytona wakefulness sold on our site is an scrupulous duplicate of the first, in all aspects natural and functional. And each Rolex Daytona duplicate wakefulness has also been reviewed by the duplicate watches reviews team and only those watches that have passed with flying streamer|ensign|banner|colors} have come out onto the display cases.
