$2.3m in missing DS Lites

from http://www.engadget.com/2006/06/15/t...sing-ds-lites/


We're not sure what you'd do with as many as 18,000 Nintendo DS units that you swiped alongside a stockpile of games in a container in Hong Kong, but it looks like nearly any number of black DS Lites and games were stolen in a $2.3 million dollar heist en route to Europe for launch later this month. A reward of $1 million HKD (about $129,000 US) was posted by Hong Kong police, but something tells us that the perps and their associates behind this -- easily one of the largest gadget hustles we've yet heard of -- won't be quick to give up some names. Then again, we imagine that tasty reward might be a bit tempting, so be a little cautious when bidding for your next DS on eBay; you know, make sure the quantity isn't listed in the thousands, ok?

Wouldn't the Company (for lack of a better word) be able to see such a high number of WIFI connectors at one time in their satalites?

it was a JOKE jackass.

at least blyssfullstorm got it.

but to answer your question, if they routed their network system through the satellites, and scanned around hong kong looking for adhoc wifi network connections using say... kismet or another similar tool, they would be able to find them yes. hell, even just scanning with a wifi card in the area for local networks should probably find them. i think even psps pick up adhoc connections so... someone with a psp walking by could find em

hehe, what i'd do, is open up a DS, modify the wifi ariel to use the orbital satellites, then join, beat some, then say "PWNED!!!" just as the swat team jump in to fuck em all up.



i'd LOVE to be part of that gaming party. that would kick ass til they got busted

So, here's my educated guess (you can thank me later): The DS lites were hijacked by a specialized cult which believes that they can utilize the WiFi to fuze the units, and incarnate Voltron.

I don't believe it. Based on the simple fact: Voltron has been assembled for years now. The Government just doesn't whant you to know.
