IBM makes trees in London understand Bluetooth

IBM UK has turned the trees in the City of London into hotspots so mobile phone users in the area can access the latest scores from the Wimbledon tennis championships via bluetooth.

Party pooper and anti-virus vendor McAfee is warning Londoner's to be cautions, as buetooth is the perfect way for your mobile phone to catch a virus. Probably a legitimate concern, as a similar initiative during the Helsinki World Championship, resulted in hundreds off peoples mobile phones being infected with the 'Comm Warrior' virus after downloading Bluetooth information on the event."
