Airport Tracks Your Cell Phone To Predict Wait Times

Helpful tool or just another reason to turn your cell phone off when you fly?

The wait times are driven by beacons that anonymously monitor passenger’s mobile devices as they move through the airport. The BlipTrack solution, invented by Denmark-based BLIP Systems and installed by Lockheed Martin, detects Bluetooth or Wi-Fi devices in "discoverable" mode, found in mobile phones and tablets.
