Now here’s uber fascinating. Meeting Point. A free Bluetooth powered software program for Smartphones, PDAs and laptops which is designed to help people meet up in crowded venues. Switch it on when you get to your destination, select a pre arranged channel, enter simple message (like ‘I’m over by the toilets’) and click search. I can’t even begin to think of all the applications for this little puppy!
‘At the airport or bus/train station…You can meet with someone previously unknown (e.g. business contact, virtual friend). Just agree on a channel and MeetingPoint will sound an alarm when you’re at bluetooth working range. Of course, it can also be used to find known people in difficult places (like a crowded pub), or to meet new people using a common (named “PUBLIC”) channel. It is very easy to use: just enter a channel, a short message and click Search.’
