Requested content so no spamming - also sends compatible content, so if you can't view a video you'd receive an image instead. [isapgis, May 21 2006]

During the summer, the communication agency DDB, the company JCDecaux, specialized in urban furniture, and the company Alterwave specialized in proximity marketing and advertising on mobile phones via Bluetooth, have set up the first mupy (standalone advertising panel) allowing the free download of a mobile phone ringtone, especially recorded for the fans of Porsche cars.

       okay, look. Who wants this? other than advertisers of course. Also, if phones were made so they couldn't block these ads, any hacker with the brains of a lower primate could hack it, jack the network, and use it to broadcast a virus r worm r something.

       The best way I can think of for a company to advertise via bluetooth, would be to record a short, pointless video which happens to include their product in it. For example, a teenager using a drinks can as a toy rocket.
This could then be sent from phone to phone by anyone who recieves it under the guise of a teenager being a fool, but reminding people that they could do with a drink right about now...

       I am deeply sorry. It has been succesfully baked.. The man deserves a bun.. I guess.. neah... Ill just send it via bluetooth when he gets here.. [-]

       Contrary to popular belief most bluetooth advertising software and servers like proxiblaster.com are permission based meaning the receiver can elect to refuse the bluetooth advertisement . ProxiBlaster.com Bluetooth advertising software and servers take it a step further as once a bluetooth advertisement is refused , the software remembers this and does not send the bluetooth ad again .

Better that maybe they could decline even the "opportunity" in advance. [-]

       on the chaos communication congress, someone said there was a picture that when transmitted via bluetooth crashed the receiving phone.

       Re: 8th of 7's mfd:   

       If you see advertising or spam, just send email, don't use marked-for-deletion. MFD is too slow and intended for people who care at least a little bit - advertisers usually don't.   

       That said, what *should* we do if proponents of an industry put a link on the idea that "invents" their industry? If it weren't so damn obvious, we'd be okay with it, right? The links are on topic; once you get past the keyword repetition, "proxiblaster" is actually saying something. Yeah, it's sort of advertise-y, but what exactly do we expect?
jutta, Jan 29 2008

       I guess it's a question of judgement and context. If the contribution is contributing to the discussion then fair enough. If its main purpose is to advertise something already well-known then it should go. It's the difference between someone saying "That's weird, my company actually *makes* electric lipsticks." and "Speaking of electric lipsticks, we have full range of make-up in neon colours at www....".
