As someone who previously designed wireless hardware I always thought Bluetooth was a useless protocol. Then I discovered I could force my musical tastes on the unsuspecting.

It's also a fun way to find unsecured printers in the apartment building.  Who's getting picture of my butt printed by surprise...?

Either I have seriously misunderstood how bluetooth works, or this has literally always been the case and the writer is just trying to present some kid's doctoral thesis as groundbreaking research.

Long ago someone made a bluetooth device installed in their car that had a directional antenna that pointed out the front and some software that would associate with other car's radio using default passwords or fast scanning or other hacks.  The result is they could then yell at drivers using the sound system in their car.
