Last night, on his talk show on Future TV, Zaven Kouyoumdjian was discussing the effects of Bluetooth technology in the Gulf region. Today, Khaled Al-Sulaiman called Saudi Arabia the “Bluetooth Nation.” I don’t know about you guys, but I think they are making a way big deal out of this Bluetooth thing. Bluetooth is just a technology. If you don’t like it, or you think it’s harmful, simply turn the damn thing off! Al-Sulaiman says his device was able to receive a connection via Bluetooth was only when there were Saudis around, which makes him concludes that we are obsessed with Bluetooth. He is so wrong. Saudis are not obsessed with the technology; they are simply obsessed with getting to know anyone from the opposite sex, and they use this technology because a) it’s easy to use, and b) it’s very safe.

I think a lot of Saudis use blue tooth to hook up with the opposite sex. I see a lot of that happening when I go to coffee shops and restuarnats in Jeddah. Immedialtely, guys and girls message you. Of course, if you are a girl, you get more messages.
CNN ran a story on this subject on “inside the middle east” a few months ago. They siad the exact same thing as you Ahmed. What surprised me was people were openly giving interviews saying they use bluetooth to hook up with people. Even sisters that were veiled, didnt they wonder about their parents seeing it? They have CNN in the middle east! The attached article “bluetooth nation” didnt get to the point.
hi Ssudi Jeans, i read your comments on the episode of bluetooth and i agree. however, even if it was a safe means to connect with hte opposite sex its not healthy, dont you agree? keep in touch. email@example.com
I totally agree it’s not healthy, but sadly there isn’t much to do about it.
