trifinite.downloads page

Finally, the trifinite.downloads page got populated with some information. There are three sections. One that links trifinite.toools (tools that have been developed by members of the group) , one that links trifinite.talks (presentations that have been given by members of the group) and one that links trifinite.papers (publications that have been witten by members of the group).

Added Links to trifinite.links

As there are quite a lot of developments of JSR-82 implementations, I gathered a few on the trifinite.links page as they are very handy for developers of different platforms. There is also a new list of Bluetooth-related weblogs.

trifinite.album is now online

Finally, the trifinite.album is online. The automatically generated album (script by Marginal Hacks) features pictures from 20C3 (Chaos Communication Congress 2003), BlackHat 2004 USA, from DEFCON-12, from the Long-Distance Snarf Experiment in Santa Monica and from the Bluetooone dongle modification project.
Every time, there are photos from a specific event where people from the trifinite.group participate, it is planned that some pictures are published on the trifinite.album pages. So make sure you check this location regularily.

Recently in the sports department

Last week on my tour through a few sports outfittes, I found something cool. An O'Neill snowboard jacket with an integrated Bluetooth hub. This hub is connected to a flexible keyboard in the jacket's left arm sleeve. There is also a built-in microphone in the collar. So snowboarders with this piece of wearable electronics are able to listen to mp3-music that is stored on a 128MB card and can take voice calls from the phone that is connected to the hub by a Bluetooth connection. Infineon was the technology partner for realizing this snowboard jacket.

I am curious about this jacket's security. Perhaps snowboarders can be screened when they leave the slope for powder excursions. And maybe it is possible to get the audio from the microphone which is built in their collar. At least this would be entertaining on the way up in the ski-lift.

But since this jacket is rather pricy ( >500 Euro) it is rather unlikely that these jackets can be spotted frequently.
