Hacker Heaven

When I saw this article, the first thing I thought was 'Hackers will have a lot of fun with this, unless it is secured really well.' 

Wi-Fi Direct will automatically scan for local existing hotspots and any wi-fi-enabled devices, such as cameras, phones and computers.

The Alliance says the specification will search for both consumer electronics and office applications, enabling devices to connect from across a home or workplace.

Tech companies are basically shipping computers that are programmed to automatically open connections with any machine that asks for it.  This could be a disaster.  If you get any computer or advanced phone next year or later, make sure that it is secured very well.
