bluetooth4

I just learned that the new macbook airs and macminis have bluetooth 4. (21-july-2011) with the iPhone 5 rumored to contain it. Assuming that includes the low-power mode, the sensor network is finally here. Oh wait this is Apple - they'll neuter it before shipping.

lowpower bluetooth4 is our best hope for spontaneous phone to phone discovery and messaging. (re: dating site)
