Okay, so last night I went to see Dylan Moran at the Alban Arena
- St. Albans' main theatre.. little did I know it would be the setting
for the best bluejack I've ever had!!
In the lobby beforehand, I started looking for people to 'jack,
and got an S55, P900 and T610. All sent nice n quickly, but I didn't
hear any beeps or see any reactions, although it was starting to
get crowded as more people arrived. So we decided to head into the
main arena to find our seats, which were in the circle at the top,
right in the front row.
After a few minutes as more people came in, I did another scan
with my T610. A few phones came up, including "Erixon T610", so
I sent another "I can see you!" to that, re-scanned, found and sent
to a Nokia 6310i... no beeps, and I still couldn't see anyone looking
at their phones.
So I started another scan, and not only did I get five phones,
the last icon was a computer! I thought someone must have their
laptop out, or in a bag in standby mode with bluetooth on or something.
I waited for the name to come up, but it only came up with "Unknown".
So instead I got my PDA out, to see what that could come up with.
This is what I saw:
So I started sending the message to the computer... It waited
a bit, then connected. Then it waited a bit longer... then it sent!
I wasn't expecting to see or hear anything, but I was satisfied
with the knowledge that it got through. I went back to chatting
with the people I was with, and then after about thirty seconds,
looked at the projection screen on the stage that had some sketch
on it that was obviously to do with Dylan's performance. But it
wasn't anymore. It had changed. Instead of just a picture, it was
the Mac desktop view, with different windows... including one that
"Bluetooth contact received:
I Can See You.vcf"!!!!! :-D :-D :-D
I immediately told the three friends I was with, and we all started
pissing ourselves! It was just so funny!! Other people in the audience
started looking at the screen trying to work out what was going
on, and the screen wasn't changing!
So I created "Hello Alban Arena!!", and started to send that!
Waiting... connected... sent!
I was going to send a picture of the view from my seat or something
else I had in my phone's gallery to see if that would come up, but
my friends reminded me that they already had my name (well, "danny
w") and might be pissed off when they realise what I'd done already!
So I decided to wait for a bit, because I didn't really want to
get kicked out!
Just a few minutes before he came on, someone obviously noticed
that the screen had changed, and I saw a mouse pointer darting around
the screen trying to work out what was going on! They started playing
about with some whirly thing on the bottom left that had a Bluetooth
icon on it, but the projector wasn't showing the whole screen, so
I couldn't really see. I'm sure a Mac user knows what I'm talking
I did think it was probably best not to send anything else, especially
if they did have any kind of knowledge about Bluetooth! Also, by
what they were doing with the Bluetooth icon, I thought they might
have turned it off anyway. I waited until the end to send another
message, but that still managed to get through, so I could have
just halted the whole performance if I'd wanted to!
Anyway, it was a great performance, and a great bit of Bluejacking!
And everyone in the pub afterwards thought it was hilarious!
