As for the topic at hand, my first question to cell phone radiation panickers is always this: Why haven't you been protesting radio and TV? Our cells have been saturated with Jerry Mathers and Lucille Ball for a very long time.
Hmmm... Given the current world perhaps there is something in this after all.....

Pretty much all the infrastructure can be remotely patched so even" clean" technology may not remain clean, and given that the alternative technology supplier seems to be Cisco I have little confidence in 1G being secure! (Actually analog may be secure these days!)

That reminds me (off topic warning!) of a few years ago when I came out of a supermarket, walked up to our car, pulled out my key and pushed the button, and was rewarded with an answering beep. Except it was the wrong key and our car was still locked.
I've since regretted not pushing the lock button to lock it back up. Whoever's it was.

Nothing new in that. Back in the "analogue" key world of the 1970's and 1980's the same physical key could open several different cars. One friend's Morris 1800's key also opened another friend's MG1300.

I used to have a couple of keys that would run other things. Back when I was a kid, I had for backyard disassembly and old 1941 Chevy, and its key would start nearly any Chevy whose indulgent owner would let me try it. Years later I found my Honda's key would fit my cousin's Honda.

Unfortunately, the remotes for my various ratty old Jeeps have never opened any others, so no new Jeeps for a while.

We have two Toyotas, different models and years. The keys look the same and I have keys for both cars on the same key ring. A few weeks ago I drove my car home from work and discovered that I had started it with the valet key for my wife's car.

I was aware that car manufacturers often employ only a limited number of "keyings" when creating mechanical keys and locks, so that a given Toyota mechanical key can open and start a significant number of Toyotas. This saves money, makes record keeping easier, and probably reflects the limits on the number of different keyings that can be physically imposed on a key/lock system (compared to the millions and millions of Toyotas sold).

But I had assumed that the electronic lock codes were much more diverse from car to car. but maybe not (re Trebuchet's post).

My experience suggests that they are at least a little more diverse. Remember too that owing to tolerances and wear, some keys, at least the older type, will substitute for near neighbors, especially if you jiggle a little.

So far on a number of cars I've never had a remote that operated another.

How are TVs not telecom equipment?

My understanding is that Japanese manufacturer's were especially notorious for there relatively small number of keyings.

But how did Trebuchet manage to acquire somebody else's car key?
