It would be interesting to hear more about this sometime... This is very OT, but I made a website, sort of as a joke, called "Bluetooth Against Bush." After an ordeal with the Bluetooth SIG, I ended up changing the name to "Bluetooth Users Against Bush" to sidestep their legal threats: http://www.bluetoothusersagainstbush.com Here is an interview about the ordeal that was published on the Wireless Weblog earlier in the summer: http://wireless.weblogsinc.com/entry/8661224022388656/ BTAB was a hot topic in the Wireless world for a brief second. Funny enough, my next project, Bikes Against Bush, which also used Bluetooth technology, was featured on the Bluetooth SIGs website a few months later. They never contacted me about it, and therefore didn't thank me for doing cool shit with their tech and ultimately publicizing it better than they ever could. Hopefully I won't be getting in trouble again for a while :-) Still dealing with the bike arrest in court. Its a very frustrating process. Thanks for the interest, Josh
