Re: Wither Bluetoot
Bluetooth in the car seems to work pretty well, connecting your phone to your car so you have hands free talking, or how about Connecting said phone to your bluetooth headset. Are we worried about security when we are talking on the cell phone? I think not. Security is coming ever faster with new development and with new uses for Bluetooth, more security is coming along with it. Nothing is 100% secure but we do what we can to secure our bluetooth enabled devices the best we can.

Most Security is common sense stuff though. like passwords, usernames and never giving them out to anyone. No talking about sensitive stuff over the cell phone to anyone...keeping your information as private as possibly by not telling people about it..the list goes on and on.

with the development of new bluetooth enabled devices security is being built into things and if not then there is an app that will secure your device. Nothing is 100% though.

Re: Wither Bluetoot
One of the things holdng Bluetooth back is the perception of a security vulnerability. There are all sorts of possible ways for a connecting device to take over some of the services broadcast by a Bluetooth device and then what? It is a little bit of an unknown quantity.

The low energy versions of Bluetooth may just spur the greater use of the technology. Plus, some sort of big push by the industry to garner publicity and a greater following by users. As mobile devices encourage more and more useage by the consumer, Bluetooth should certainly pick up some speed in the market.

Low E
Its good to see people actually reducing the energy use of bluetooth. I particularly like the idea of bluetooth in healthcare settings where wires and other things get in the way when assessing patients.

Awesome
Things that were once only imagined are becoming a reality! It is always nice to see older technology merging with the new technology. Bluetooth LE has so much potential!

Re: Wither Bluetoot
It hadn't occurred to me that Bluetooth-type technology might be useful in this context.  I guess it was right under my nose.  We're so used to tying gadgets together using Bluetooth, and certainly low energy is an attraction.

There was much talk a while ago about Bluetooth and PANs or Personal Area Networks. It does not seem to have panned out...yet. so many opportunities opening up now though.
