Mac Developer: BBC News - Wearable users tracked with Raspberry Pi
BBC News - Wearable users tracked with Raspberry Pi: People who use wearable gadgets to monitor their health or activity can be tracked with only $70 (£40) of hardware, research suggests.
The work, carried out by security firm Symantec, used a Raspberry Pi computer to grab data broadcast by the gadgets.
The snooping Pi was taken to parks and sporting events where it was able to pick out individuals in the crowds.
I'm sure the situation is much worse than you'd expect because embedded systems on these kinds of devices are rarely scrutinized like desktop and mobile operating systems.
