But wait, there's more...
You don't even need to own a Bluetooth device for a determined stalker (with a few bucks to spare) to track you.

Police Captain Louis Renault: "Realizing the importance of the case, my men are rounding up twice the usual number of suspects."
Before you get cross with me, this is not the line at the end, where Renault already knows Rick did it and is covering for him. That was " Major Strasser has been shot... round up the usual suspects."
Decades ago, research into the uses of lead, mercury, cadmium, asbestos, CFCs and the like yielded enormous economic value.
Today, the real value of much of that research is close to zero, or even negative.
Present-day researchers must consider not just the product or process itself, but also the health and environmental consequences of its adoption. This all takes time and effort, and is bound to reflect badly in the figures, but is probably an improvement in real terms.
I don't think the picture is as bleak as a purely economic assessment indicates, and we certainly don't need any more radium watch dials. And we want our ozone layer restored.
1) Remove foil wrapper from chocolate.
2) Place wrapper on phone, being sure to cover WiFi antenna.
Check phone manual for antenna location.
3) Eat chocolate.
If signal still gets through, turn phone off, wait, and turn it on again.
IMPORTANT. Delay turning phone on again until all chocolate is completely eaten.
I doubt that you busted the sensor, it's quite robust and well protected. The batteries should be well enough sealed for short-term use.
Nope, my suspicions were aroused by the maximum altitude figure of 32707ft, which, as any fule kno, is close to the upper limit of 32767 for a signed 16 bit integer. Any more than that and the top bit will be set, which will make the value negative. What happens after that is up to the software.
This time RTFM could be misleading; the MS5534 datasheet says 'All calculations can be performed with signed 16-Bit variables.' Maybe so if you deal only in metres.
You're not the first to be had by this one, I found in 1986 that FS II on the Amiga would fly into the ground if you set the autopilot for more than 32767 feet, and the first Ariane 5 launch was downed by almost exactly the same bug.
You might need to reset the thing to get back the calibration data, but it's probably not broken, unlike the Ariane. Have fun!
In 'Air America' by Christopher Robbins (Macmillan 1979, Corgi pbk reissue 1990 ISBN 0-552-13722-7) there is a photo from the China Post Archives showing a donkey in a cargo net slung under a Huey. Probably in Laos sometime in the 60s; Huey reg. is N8513F.
Oh, yes, the picture caption: Air America hauls ass.
