Snicket was really fed up when he discovered that Bluetooth wasn't a character in Pirates of the Caribbean. I had to put him straight with a fascinating demo of my phone. He was obviously riveted. Mid-demo, whilst we were stuck in a traffic jam on the M62, I did a quick scan of local devices and discovered lots of people's phones nearby. The best bit was looking through some of the names people give to their phones. This was how I discovered my new hobby.

Here's a sample from a couple of quick scans on my way to work this morning:

Big Arms
Gary G
Barbados 4 U
Sex Panther

As a reward I sent them each a picture of Ana Matronic to brighten their journey.

What's yours called?
