USA Today runs an article that basically sounds like the rewriting of a press release from the Ponemon Institute. (I really wish he had run something from the Pokémon Institute instead.) The article itself is basically a scare piece about the idea that MP3 players could record your personal information, music files, and digital photos, and share them over Bluetooth with nearby eavesdroppers. (Engadget has a few reasons why that logic is flawed. ‘Ware of shiny MP3 players. 😉 )

What the article mainly made me think was that an MP3 player that could take pictures, sync over Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, and store personal information would be pretty nice. Could it play games as well?

I don’t know anything about the Ponemon Institute, but do you get the feeling from the site it’s really just one guy?
