  • <p>Gosh, had this been an 802.11-ish device I might not have cringed as much. Bluetooth has been hacked. Security of this protocol is known to be flawed.</p> <p>So it now allows for Wireless access to a protocol used for configuring and reading various instruments on a plant.</p> <p>I can see the safety benefits here. The security aspects, however, seem to have fallen on the floor.</p>


  • <p>Hmmmm....let's see what we can find here.</p> <p>Try here: <a href=""></a> And here: <a href=""></a> And here: <a href=""></a> And here: <a href=""></a> And here: <a href=""></a> (that one's from 2005, so it's been known for a while...)

  • <p>I am looking for that time when these latest technologies will be introduced on <a href="">telephone answering service</a>. It would be great if this could happen. because wireless access to telephone will solve many of the problems and the call attender will be free with both the hands. </p>
