The folks at 1 Infinite Loop have placed tracking devices called beacons in their stores in order to offer a new kind of shopping experience. These beacons communicate with your phone via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology in order to offer you appropriate promotions, advertisements, and other information based on your location within the store.

.All iPhones from the 4 on upwards come equipped with this functionality, a “location and proximity detection technology” called iBeacon, if they are running iOS7.

Oh f-ing marvellous. Actually, I can feel the tech in the stores so this does not surprise me one bit. And I'm not the only person who's told me how they get these sudden, random "hits" to their head/body as they walk around stores.

F-ing iPhones!

Faraday bag for phone or whatever. Probably could make one quite easily, too.

Have a very basic cellphone for absolute emergencies. Must be the least used phone in the western world.

Also got a bloc-sock for it, similar to that faraday cage posted....that looks better, actually.

Can we programme it to say something beginning with F and ending with Off? :conf:

if he undaunted be....". (Beowulf).
