Have fitbit? You can be traced and id'd....

Here's an interesting bit of news. Turns out for $70 purchase of software, someone, anyone could track you if you wear any kind of wearable gadget like a fitbit. Not only that, they can pick you out and identify you in crowd, say amidst a lot of people in a park. That's a little scary. Scenarios: a bunch of guys jogging, and someone could identify the big guy at the Pentagon, or a rich person's relative at a party, or an ex-you wish to get revenge upon walking a dog. Hopefully the fitbit people will come up with new and improved less easy to identify wearable bits. Read more about it here http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-28602997
