I'm experimenting with bluetooth pens (Logitech IO2) and a Blipnode Wireless Access Point.  I have noticed that if I hold the bluetooth pen into my gut and cover it with my hands, it will not communicate with the WAP.  Is this typical for bluetooth.  Does anyone have any documentation/studies done on this?

Bluetooth operated in the ~2.4ghz spectrum, which happens to be the resonating frequency of water - microwaves use this frequency to super heat water particles.

Basically, our bodies are over 60% water and the signal is just being absorbed by your body before getting anywhere else.
