Are you marketing strategy for retailers wireless provider Boeing though is set to test the system that could tractor traffic patterns.
In malls by using the wireless signal on your Smartphone while this will help retailers target potential customers.
Access to people Smartphones is little bit creepy in here to disagree with me again.
David Hagan president -- a Boeing a wireless -- thanks for joining us.
You know I don't like this it feels a little creepy to me but tell me why that's not the case.
That's not really could -- -- because it's it's beaten -- basically using the same capabilities and technologies.
That are used in an on line today so for example if you do a Google search.
For a specific product you'll probably see advertising served up by Google.
Surrounding that product that same type of some products maybe.
Jason categories of products so again it's -- using information that the consumer provides and then in doing in the Smart ways that actually adds benefit to the consumer.

Who now has a record of everywhere I've gone.
-- that the data stored on an anonymous basis and it's encrypted and so we don't have.
User specific data so we're very careful about that and then.
And boy go and in other companies in the industry to provide the capability.
Take security and privacy very seriously so obviously we don't want to do any thing.
That is -- -- -- -- the shoppers to the consumer or any way.
Impacts their privacy so this is -- to the benefit of the shopping experience and I think.
Once we get it implemented and more of a -- play -- really love it because again they they get the benefit.
