An interesting story from the BBC based on some research I have been doing with Nico Prucha based at the University of Vienna.

We found jihadists were compiling packages of information designed to be received on smartphones. They contained copies of videos, songs, speeches and images that followers are encouraged to pass on. Some were using Bluetooth short-range radio technology to anonymously spread information to potential supporters, and there are further implications for mobile phone security following the commoditisation of tools and techniques.
