Well that was kind of the point ... The ATMs *did *use GPS, as the ATM 
system used GPS for their accurate time signal. No one anticipated it 
would fail until this test was run.

My main business is IT security, and that involves a component of risk

which will come out of left field and take you down. Which is why I 
personally found it so interesting.
