I would imagine that cyclists are singled out because: a) many of them are children so the manufacturers can play the "think of the children" card b) once laws are passed the manufacturers have a built in customer base that MUST purchase from them c) to many people cycling is something new and different. Walking is something everyone does - so it's harder to convince them they've been doing it wrong

The USB-based sniffer tool lets you eavesdrop on a Bluetooth communication session, and teamed up with other tools, access encrypted data on Bluetooth devices. 111&WT.svl=news1_4"
