A Slashdot article points to news that Mazda will be foregoing the traditional cylinder key system in favour of a new USB flash drive system. The new system is in production for the new Sassou concept car. Pretty neat stuff.
In addition to starting the engine, the flash drives can be used to transfer driving directions for long trips along with the latest songs for the day to the Sassou’s internal hard drive.
Meanwhile, devious hackers plan massive Mazda car thefts.
