I've heard the best of Bluetooth is yet to come. With the advent of Bluetooth Smart (Low Energy)... but I wonder what cool apps could be enabled in a car? Bluetooth Low Energy has a low throughput to ensure low power consumption. Thus, I think no audio will be transmitted using this new scheme, but its mainly focused on transmitting shorts bursts of data... I wonder if the Car Working Group in the Bluetooth SIG is considering to develop any kind of profiles using Bluetooth Low Energy... does somebody knows this?

good to know Janet that you are so excited about your smartphone and finding its functionalities with surprises. Do not linger too long about finding out the new apps in the stores as the more time goes by then you will find even harder time to spend there.

Janine, it's rare that I get to comment on one story about two clients at the same time! First, I'm loving that you are loving Bluetooth. As you know, I've repped the Bluetooth SIG for a long time (9 yrs and counting!) and am always thrilled to hear people (especially reporters!) say "I love Bluetooth." And btw, if you get the Nike+ Fuelband, the sync via Bluetooth to your phone is awesome. I also work with Tabbedout and love that you have found its app. It's a great idea, right? Wanted to let you know that today the company announced it was powering the TGI Friday's payment portion of its new mobile app - effectively doubling the number of locations now offering Tabbedout. I don't know how often you frequent Friday's, but if you need to eat dinner and run without waiting for the waiter to bring back your bill, well then this app is for you. Enjoy rocking out this weekend! - Starr

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
