    I'd be more worried about getting a virus from going to that site than I would getting my brain "hacked" by a bluetooth connection.

    I read the whole article. There is a ton of technical jargon in there, but the underlying principle seems fatally flawed to me. Bluetooth is nothing more than a short range radio protocol. Yet the researcher claims they received a "neurogenic shock". I'm not sure how a radio transmission could cause that. If so, why does it not affect other people within a 10-15 ft radius?

    Yeah, I read the whole article, as well. I found that reading it backward had about the same amount of substance as reading it forward.

    How did they do that? :D

    They used jargon and mumbo jumbo.
