      Here's the text scanned from July Consumer Reports p. 55:
       [A Consumer ] reports electronics engineer
      found that out
      the hard way. While at the beach, he forgot that the key to his Toyota Prius was in his pocket, went
      for a dip in the surf, and never saw the key again. The cost of a replacement: $600.
      Like many new cars, his Prius uses a proximity key that electronically unlocks the car when you touch the door handle and lets
      you start it by pressing a button on
