A PDA and a phone can talk to each other through a Bluetooth connection. This means I can copy the data from one to the other, or I can go online on the PDA, using the phone to connect to the web.

To stop me accessing someone else's phone without their permission, I have to enter the same code numbers on both devices. This proves that they're both in my possession. So that's all secure and sorted... or at least it should be.
Adam Laurie is a security expert who can hack into certain models of phones without an access code. Using a Bluetooth enabled laptop and specially written software, he can take your data at the push of a button, an attack he's dubbed 'Bluesnarfing'.
