Bluejacking I thought I’d give


I thought I’d give it a whirl as I was trundling around Cheshire oaks and I was amazed as to how may Bluetooth enable phones I could pick up. However, each attempt failed.

I tried again later in the evening in Sainsbury’s and again working around Chester’s JS store I was shocked as to how many bluetooth enabled phones I could see, at one point near the tills I’d picked up 10 phones. Kev and Ian will have a bit of a shock when they next look at there phones as it’ll read “You’ve been Bluejacked!!” across their screen. I guess they’ll panic as to what else has happened to their phone.

If you didn’t know all the fuss was about you could think somebody has wiped your memory, stolen you contacts, put a virus on your phone all sorts of different things.

But it was all a bit of an anticlimax really, you couldn’t tell who you’d ‘jacked so there wasn’t much fun in the whole activity…might try it again, I might not,…I guess it depends upon how bored I get.

Commerzbank plans to outsource IT

Commerzbank plans to outsource IT to IBM

The deal, if approved by the antitrust agency, would be IBM’s second big outsourcing contract with a German bank, after its groundbreaking agreement with Deutsche Bank nearly a year ago. That 10-year contract, valued at approximately $2.5 billion, involved outsourcing the bank’s computer centers and smaller server sites in Belgium, Germany, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Switzerland, Spain and Luxembourg. The bank expects to save around $1 billion in IT operating costs over a 10-year period. [read here]
