    Bluetooth is one of the least secure protocols out there. This would be tantamount to broadcasting your password on the local AM radio.

    I don’t know about this – I think it is a bad idea. Imagine you loose your iPhone and ….. that would be a nightmare.

    I know we can wipe it clean blah blah but still too dangerous.

    Actually, this is old technology…linux has been doing it for a long long time…http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=702372 would be a decent how to.

    And there’s also a Mac attempt at this, but my experience 2 years ago was not as smooth as with linux, so I stopped trying…maybe it’s gotten better?

    http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20091221173111783 that’s one of the many howtos out there for this on Mac.

    Bluetooth 4.0, however…

    Ha… Still doesn’t top my idea that may never come out, but it is VERY close. But mine does not use your phone that could easily be stolen nor does it use Bluetooth or wifi – that is my issue. Nice, but ehh…

    And mine was not just for ‘access’, it was for MORE things like purchasing and personalize marketing. You know how when you go into a restaurant you normally visit and the employees know EXACTLY what you want, but will usually say “So, the usual or how are you feeling today?” imagine that experience in a clothing, electronics, bookstore (if you still buy physical copies) or shop..

    Hitting two keys logs me into any website with 1Password. How much easier can you get?

    I agree with the commenter who mentioned Bluetooth 4. And by the way, where the heck are all the Bluetooth 4 devices? Even Ten One’s BT4 “Blue Tiger” iPad stylus is still vaporware. I have an iPad 3 with BT4 and no BT4 devices to use with it! With the extremely low power and security benefits, you would think they would have far more devices out than now. Right now we have nothing!
