    What is [b]Bluejacking[b]?
    Have you ever been doorbell ditching before? The point of the prank is simple: Sneak up to someone's front door, knock loudly or ring the doorbell, and, instead of greeting whomever answered the door, run away and hide somewhere nearby. The joy of doorbell ditching is, of course, reveling in the homeowners confusion and rolling with laughter under the security of his/her nicely trimmed bushes. Although the game might get you into a little bit of trouble if you happen to incite the ire of a cranky neighbor, it's mostly a harmless joke on par with a prank phone call.

    For more technically inclined pranksters with access to Bluetooth technology, however, there's the digital version of doorbell ditching and prank phone calls: [b]Bluejacking[b]. A kin of practical joke played out between Bluetooth-enabled devices. Bluejacking takes advantage of a loophole in the technology's messaging options that allows a user to send unsolicited messages to other nearby Bluetooth owners.

    The only difference between doorbell ditching and Bluejacking is the Bluejacking usually isn't done on your neighbors front lawn. Instead, a Bluejacker will most likely camp out is crowded areas like shopping malls, airports, and generally any place where potential victims might gather. The trend has even fostered fan Web sites.
