Tracking People Using Bluetooth.

damdam writes from Slashdot.org "A Dutch guy seems to have set up a 
small network of bluetooth scanners. He has all the information logged 
to a central database and you can search it over the web. On his website 
it says "Some of these matches were only minutes apart. Therefore I 
could even calculate the approximate speed of someone moving from one 
location to
another.". There are also some interesting statistics on his site 
showing traffic volume in his hometown (based on bluetooth signals) and 
he even lists popularity of certain Nokia phones. It's interesting to 
see how much information an individual can gather using old equipment."
