Take Over Your Neighbor's TV And Force Them To Sit Through Your Vacation Photos

from the muahahahahahah dept

It certainly is a slow Friday for news, so we end up with stories like the following one… Reminiscent of when some folks found that typing on a wireless keyboard could result in your keystrokes showing up on a neighbor’s computer, comes this story. Apparently, as a family in Finland sat down to dinner with the TV on, they suddenly started seeing camera phone pictures taken by their neighbor appear on their TV. Not being the voyeuristic type, they shut off the TV and alerted the neighbor – who was trying to view the pictures on their own TV. The problem came from neither family having changed the default password on their new Bluetooth enabled TVs. It seems that sometimes wireless connections may be a little bit too convenient.
