Saw Homeland season 2 episode 10 last night. Loving NZ managing to get it just hours after it screens in the US.Spoiler:
Is that even possible to hack into someone's pacemaker with the serial number and stop it from a computer at some distant location? Unless pacemakers operate over some sort of mobile network (and why would they?) how could one be accessed?
I actually wondered this myself,but then I read an interview with the writers,and they explained that they actually came up with the idea after reading an article about how it actually could be done-that scientists had been able to tamper with the equipment and speed everything up and-well,I can't remember the technical details,but the gist of it was yes,it can be done!But apparently now the guys who make these things are,with the help of the latest scientific research,changing them so it can't be done.
I can look for the article in my history and pm you the link,if you're interested?
