Volvo Treasure Hunt Over: Programmer Finds "Dead Man" XC90

To be honest, Volvo's treasure hunt and tie-in with a certain Disney movie sequel starring Johnny Depp lost us after about three minutes. But apparently it's over, and one man, David Hutz, a 30 year-old computer programmer from Herndon, Virginia, has located and unearthed the buried XC90 SUV that 52,000 people had been searching for. On Volvo's The Hunt site, you can check out how he used his finely honed GPS-caching skills to outwit, outlast and outgeek the other participants. We'll be here, embroiled in our own six-month search for our car keys.
