Google helps theives crack safe

Proving that Google can be useful for every situation in life:

The two burglars had door keys, pass codes and combinations for the safes at a Colorado Springs indoor amusement center.

The burglars... spent an hour and 15 minutes trying to open three safes, apparently unaware that some types require the dial to be turned two or three times.

They finally did a Google search for “how to open a safe” and “how to crack a safe” on a computer in the next room.

...The Google query apparently worked: The burglars haven’t been caught, and they did get about $12,000.
