    My sound did not drop out in this video. Interesting things about how Bluetooth did not really have any security other than the Bluetooth not being able to be scanned by other devices. I guess it is like turning off the broadcast SSID option on the Wireless AP and calling that security. I did find this article on Bluetooth security that talks about how it is up to the vendor or OEM of the Bluetooth device to implement security in there Bluetooth devices.
