Internet & Networking Following my earlier article about creating a Bluetooth access point with your OS, here is my quick guide how to do just that with Arch Linux.

Marketing with bluetooth

I got a bluetooth ad on my phone at the mall the other day... I bet they did some thing like this, except generated messages instead of allowing internet connections. BTW, I found out that it is important to not only set your phone to non-discoverable, but also change the default name. I thought the ad was it pretty cool at the time, I bet it will get old when it catchs on.
