Using Bluetooth to Make Friends

Imagint this scenario:

You’ve just ordered a Grey Goose and tonic at the Purple Shamrock when your cellphone begins to chime. You pull it out of your purse, and catch a glimpse of a Johnny Depp look-alike on the display screen.
”Meet Henry,” the text reads. “He shares your interest in snowboarding and ‘Kill Bill’ movies.”
You look up and - lo and behold - there’s Henry, sipping a Ketel One and soda, just 10 feet away.

Social networking services like "Serendipity" are the latest "Killer Application", and now Bluetooth is getting in on the action.
