robot hacker skills were used for evil (the real kind)

Remember hearing in the news how scammers stole credit card numbers by modifying checkout machines? Look real careful at the image, and you'll see a SparkFun Bluetooth device hooked up to the UART of the checkout machine . . . clever . . . I applaud the police for tracking this down quickly. The second page has the news story.
